Well, Ezra seems to have gotten over his fever.
We took him trick or treating last night just up and down our own block, and man did that kid have fun (don’t worry, we did put shoes on first).
Today (Tuesday), the munchkin is still home with me because we have to keep him out of daycare until 24 hours have passed since the fever, and while I do adore this kid like no other, it has been five straight days of parenting a child who is not at the top of his game and holy cow I could never be a stay at home mother because those women are SAINTS with serious patience that I do not come close to possessing.
For today’s post, I’m including images of Ezra in his Elmo costume, but also some of my favorite shots/costumes from the photo booth I had yesterday in my studio. Such a fantastic time of year!
And lastly, since I’ve been slammed being a full-time parent lately, there hasn’t been much time for online surfing. So instead, I’m going to share a few beauty products I’ve discovered in the last six months that I cannot live without. To the boys out there: Sorry. Or maybe read through them for stocking stuffer ideas? And many of these are skin products because hey, I’m over 40 now, chasing a toddler around, lacking solid sleep and I’m trying to fight wrinkles like a ninja. Bear with me.
+ Boy brow. I love this brow finisher because it’s easy and I feel SUPER put together after using it. In general, I haven’t met a Glossier product I don’t love. And? If you listen to a certain podcast and use promo codes, you can save 20% off. My recent listening binge has been this one, and their promo code is MURDER. You’re welcome.
+ This makeup remover is FANTASTIC. It gets EVERYTHING off, and leaves your skin moisturized, is less than $7 and lasts for months and months and months. Total winner.
+ This anti-wrinkle/skin brightening serum actually makes a difference that I can SEE after just a few uses. That right there is magic. FYI, you can only get it at Target.
+ This moisturizer has been used by all the women in my family since my grandmother’s plastic surgeon recommended it. Yes, my grandmother was quite a beauty fiend. I never used it until I turned 40, but I now use it twice daily and it is a miracle worker when it comes to evening out my skin and reducing the look of fine lines. The only drawback is that it’s spendy. But you know what? It makes for a great gift…
