We have been so busy this weekend! Since I woke up this morning I have been non-stop painting! Saturday, John put in a new vanity in our bathroom, then we needed another part we didn’t have to connect the sink to the water pipe, then I had to finish painting the bathroom and the entire upstairs landing. It was a lot! We also organized our upstairs closet and took Porter’s changing table out, I can’t believe he’s so big that he doesn’t fit on it anymore 🙁  It always feels good to get things done you have been putting off and to see the progress made!

I’m getting so excited for Thanksgiving! We are hosting it our house this year and I can’t wait to see everyone! One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is all the leftover food! Does anyone have any big plans this year?  I would love to hear about them, so comment away! 😉

This varsity sweater is my jam!!

I saw one of these sweaters years ago and just loved it! I’m so glad I finally snagged one, and at such a great price too! Shein has really great prices and I always find something that I love! They have some really awesome Veterans Day and Thanksgiving Day sales going on so make sure to go check them out!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I drove into downtown Eugene to pick up our official Marriage License! 🙂  We always have to do a little walk around the block because Porter loves to check everything out. He’s getting really good at his colors so every car or truck that goes by he excitingly yells out, “red, white, yellow, blue, black!!!”  It is seriously so cute!

We finally got him a Halloween costume!  He is going to be a Minion! I’m so excited to take him trick-or-treating! This is the first year he will actually be excited and get what is going on a little bit more.

I am in love with this grid print jacket from Sweetest Stitch! I love basic easy pieces like this that can be worn over and over and re-styled with lots of different items in my wardrobe! This jacket is long (love) and the best part… it has POCKETS! You all know I love my pockets! It is a lightweight thin material so it’s perfect for fall days! It’s been great for me to wear lately since the weather hasn’t been too cool.

WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE BUYING HUNTER BOOTS

I did a lot of research before purchasing my Hunter boots. These boots aren’t cheap, especially for rain boots. So, I wanted to answer any questions any of you might have if you are thinking about purchasing a pair. In case you are wondering I am 5’7 and I typically wear size 8.5 in shoes.

  1. Hunter’s run really large. Like I said I am an 8.5 and these boots only come in whole sizes. So, I went for a size 8 because I knew if I bought an 8.5 they would be too big. The 8 is perfect for me!  I can wear thick socks and they still fit perfectly! So if you are lucky enough and wear a whole size buying these won’t be as difficult.
  2. I read that the ‘Original Tall’ are very heavy and clunky (I don’t own a pair of the original ones so I can’t tell you this for a fact). I purchased the ‘Tour Gloss’ because its basically the same boot minus the heavy clunky part. They are wonderful! They are ‘packable’ so you can bend the leg part of the boot. They are still stiff that they stay upright when wearing them, so don’t worry!
  3. The larger the boot size the taller the Boot. The size 7 I own hits well under my knee. Since I am taller I don’t have to worry about the length. For those of you that are shorter, a size 7 would most likely hit right under your knee and be perfect but if you ordered a size 8 or larger it might be too tall and uncomfortable. Fortunately for shorter girls the ‘Huntress Boot‘ is a perfect alternative because the shaft is shorter.
  4. If you prefer the flat/matte finish over the glossy they will get what you call a ‘blooming’ effect (fancy word for foggy). This is normal with rubber and you can use a boot buffer cream or olive oil for a cheap alternative to wipe it away! Some people like the ‘blooming’ effect, whatever floats your boat!

I really love my Hunter’s! I hope this helps! If you have any questions just ask!  If you enjoyed reading please SUBSCRIBE to my blog!
