An end to October

This month has been absolutely insane and it is so difficult for me to accept that October is almost over. I haven't even bought Quinn her Halloween costume yet! (I'll probably just end up making something at the last minute for her! We are NOT going to miss out on trick-or-treating just because I was too busy to buy her a real costume...I NEED CANDY!!) I have been really busy training and getting adjusted to my new job and have been working non stop on my other side projects all while dealing with the craziness that goes on around our house on a daily basis and the other life changes that have happened this month. On top of everything, I never had a chance to write about the end of my time at Betsey Johnson. I was really planning on documenting my exit from BJ in my blog, especially after being with the company for almost four years, but now that some time has gone by, I don't think I will write a post about it. I'd like to remember the company for how it was four years ago when I first started there, when it was still fun and engaging and I had fond memories of the people who I worked with, the experiences that I was fortunate enough to have and the amazing places that the company led me to. I'm scared that a post about my last few weeks would end in a giant rant about the ways Betsey Johnson has slowly sold her soul (in theory, haha) and I don't want to come back to this blog years later and have that be the last thing I wrote about my time there. SO...I will end this tiny blurb by saying that, although it was sad closing out four important years of my life and locking those doors for the very last time, I am excited about my future and am thankful to Betsey Johnson for developing my managerial skills and setting me up to be in a position where I can further apply myself and make a difference in a new company. So hooray for that...and long live the fond memories that will last with me forever!

On a happier note, here are a few pictures that Robby took last week of our little adventure to the Elgin christmas tree farm/pumpkin patch to pick out Quinn's first pumpkins!!

Aww, cute pictures! Can't wait to see one of Halloween Quinn! What are you thinking to do for her costume?

Hey Marissa!

Well, I wanted to dress her up as a lobster and carry her around in a bucket, but I couldn't find a lobster costume! I think I am going to find her an orange onsie and some orange felt and make a pumpkin around her belly. Haha. What do you guys have planned?

Ahh! Lobster babies are so cute! I want to say I saw a picture of one on Offbeat Mama? Bummer that you couldn't find a costume!
A pumpkin Quinn will be just as cute, though! =] Really, babies look cute in just about anything. Win win!

We're going trick or treating with Jeff's little nephews and niece. They're 3, 6, and newborn. I bought vampire fangs and we're going to put little marks on Jeff's neck. Simple, but fun. Are you and Mike going to dress up?
