pumpkin guts and other cute stuff {Her Joyful Studio}

Earlier this week we (I guess I should say Eric) carved pumpkins! We know that Mia loves painting pumpkins but I was curious to see if she would like cleaning out the pumpkin guts. Turns out that she LOVED "helping" Eric and really loved watching him work... but she steered clear of the guts as much as possible :) She held on to her measuring spoon and pretended to help the whole time, ha ha! She did try tasting the pumpkin which was super fun... until it wasn't fun anymore ;)
In other news, I am obsessed with our mommy and me head wrap set from Her Joyful Studio! We couldn't resist wearing them as soon as we got them from the mail. Once I realized that we would obviously be taking photos of the pumpkin carving and I would be posting on the blog, I thought about changing my clothes. But comfort won and you guys get a peek into real life in our home. If you were to show up at my home you find me in Eric's basketball shorts, a mismatching shirt, and if you're lucky my hair and make up will be done ;) I can't wait to pair our head wraps with an actual outfit (ha ha) but we are obsessed with how comfy they are, and the cute print! Heaven knows I jump on any and every chance I have to match Mia!

Those jack-o-lanterns are LEGIT!! So awesome! Can you believe I've NEVER carved a pumpkin?!?! Mostly b/c I know I have no artistic ability and it just feels like a lot of work to have something not turn out well. But I love looking at others' work! :)
