cornflake dreams.: friday five.

friday five.

Happy Friday! I'm linking up with ChristinaApril, and Natasha today to share five things on my mind:
ONE: I haven't watched any Halloween movies yet and I love Tim Burton movies -- especially Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Edward Scissorhands. I hope H is up for a movie marathon this weekend.
glow-in-the-dark skeleton one piece / patterned footed sleepers: boo! + skeleton
TWO: Having a baby around during the holidays is so much fun. I love all of the adorable holiday themed pj's! Old Navy has really cute (and affordable) options. 
THREE: We carved Violet's pumpkin last night and now we have a ton of seeds to roast! Growing up I loved to carve pumpkins, but I would never eat the seeds -- much to my dad's disappointment. To be honest I don't even know if I ever actually tasted the seeds...I guess I was a picky kid. Now that my palate has evolved (ha!) I thought I'd give them a try -- smothered in sugar and cinnamon of course.
FOUR: We just ordered this highchair from IKEA -- I love it. It's easy to clean and compact so it doesn't take up a ton of room in our kitchen. Violet also loves her wooden baby gym. And they have a lot of other simple and cute toys -- shape sorter, soft stacking rings, bead roller coaster, wood stacking rings, stuffed elephant.
FIVE: Our neighborhood is having a block party on Saturday (yahh!) and I need to bring a treat. I would love to make something really festive and cute (peeps ghost browniesspider cookies / ghost cupcakes) but I am not a great baker or crafty #aintnobodygottimeforthat. So I'll probably make boxed brownies or cupcakes and go crazy with the orange sprinkles ;) Here's hoping another neighbor will bring the cute desserts.

Have a great weekend + Happy Halloween!

  13. We just ordered that Ikea high chair too and love it! ha. So much better than a $200 option. No thank you. Loving all the festive outfits too. We did not have enough Halloween outfits, so we're going to have to make up for that with an overabundance of Christmas outfits. Hope you guys have fun at your Halloween party! xo

  16. I have my eye on that highchair for when we have a baby! I love the price and lack of fabric. I have been on the lookout for reviews on it. Does it have a big footprint? Anything else I should know about it? Happy Halloween!
