Five On Friday: Recipes, Halloween, & Pictures

Don't forget to link up with Five on Friday here!


Last weekend we went apple picking. I've had ever intention to make apple crisps this week but it hasn't happened yet. Josh has even asked if I wanted to go apple picking again. Let's try to eat what we have (about 30 apples). He's an apple-pickin' machine!

Doesn't this look yummy?!


If you do not have children and are planning to one day, let me tell you about a little something called, "cluster feeding". I had no idea what this was until after H was born. Basically babies will nurse for hours at one time. Not going to lie-it's exhausting, especially at night when you're already tired. But it's great bonding time too.


I love Halloween. Actually I love all things fall. But my favorite part about Halloween is dressing up. I haven't dressed up in a few years but I can't wait to dress H up as she gets older. Pinterest is busting with costume ideas. Here are a few of my favorites family costumes!

It's a Jolly Holiday! Mary Poppins Costumes Halloween 2011 - Rae Gun Ramblings

Charlie & The Chocolate Factory - Homemade costumes for kids

Princess Peach, Mario and Luigi - Homemade costumes for families
J is already hoping H will be Princess Peach one Halloween!


I still have not been behind the wheel of my car. I could have started driving this week but my dad had to borrow my car since his was getting fixed and I didn't need mine for anything. The more time that passes the more nervous I get to get behind the wheel. I'm already a nervous driver but add some time (which feels like nothing) and a newborn and I'm a mess! I'll be getting lots of practice this weekend.


On Monday our amazing photographer Kari came to take pictures of Hadley and do a few lifestyle pictures. I will definitely post more when I get them back but I have fallen in love with the ones we have so far!


  1. Found your blog on the link up! Your baby is a doll and so precious! Love the photos!! My daughter was a cluster feeder. I know how hard it is! Hang in there :) Have a great weekend!

    Nothing better than apple crisp! Our local ice cream shop makes cinnamon ice cream...Ooh... I need to make a crisp!!! LOL!!!
    Ah...cluster feeding...when you feel like all you are is a "milk machine." Like the other'll get better. Just think she's getting your body into that "making" mode!!!
