halloween weekend

friday night we went to my family's house
to carve pumpkins
eat pizza

my dad did what he does every year
and brought out his power tools to make carving pumpkins a little more exciting...

bennett took a really long time to plan his out and carve it...

to go along with his costume
he carved a jaws themed pumpkin!

we loved on lucy.
a whole lot.

then on saturday,
we went with my mom to the downtown franklin pumpkin fest.
we had so much fun eating and drinking and walking around.
several people recognized bennett's costume
(chief martin brody from jaws)
but no one really knew mine...
(pregnant mommy fashion blogger)
most people just thought i was actually pregnant
which, heck, i was totally fine with : )

*not pictured is the laptop i made to go along with my costume
**thanks steph, for taking this picture : )

i had to take the obligatory belly shot...

happy halloween!

hope your day is filled with plenty of candy
hot chocolate
and cute trick-or-treaters!

experimenting with encaustic

yesterday i did my first encaustic painting
and i am now obsessed.

encaustic painting is basically painting with hot wax
but you can add pigment to it
and layer in other things like tracing paper
found objects
and so much more.

it is really fun to work with
and there is so much you can do with it!

camping was a blast.
we pitched our tent where we weren't allowed
and rock climbed
and peed in the woods
and made a fire
and told ghost stories
and ate hobos in the campfire
and s'mores (duh)
and then all 4 of us crammed into one tent
snuggled up real close
and went to sleep.

one night in our cabin
we opened a bottle of wine
made a fire
and watched melancholia.
such an amazing and beautiful film.
i definitely need to watch it again.

and it didn't hurt that charlotte gainsbourg is a total babe.

i'm taking 4 rolls of film to get developed
and i'm so excited to see them and post some on here real soon.
until then,

fall break

my fall break starts tomorrow
and i could not be more excited!

we are spending 2 days with karlie and her boyfriend drew!
friday night we'll be running around chattanooga
and saturday we're going camping at stone door
(the best part? all 4 of us will be cramming into one tent!)

after that
bennett and i are spending a couple days in a cabin at fall creek falls
where we're going to hike
and canoe
and sit by the fireplace
and listen to records
and drink wine.

i could not be more excited about spending the next few days
with some of my favorite friends
and my favorite husband
enjoying my favorite season.
