Julian is currently obsessed with all things Angry Birds! So when I asked him what did he want to be for Halloween he did not even think twice..he said the black Angry Bird. When I searched our local Halloween stores and online shops all costumes were SOLD OUT! I did find some on Ebay for $175..
BUT I could not bring myself to spend that much money (yikes!) and there was one little problem..the costume design. I was so worried Julian would not wear it because of his sensory issues. I love the costume but I don’t think that HE would have liked the way it wrapped around his head. I asked him if he would consider another costume..but he said NOPE.
I was giving up all hope..until I found Jen’s Etsy shop Squirmy Worms. She was sold out too, but I sent her a convo..begging her to please make ONE more. She was sooo sweet and agreed! Cannot tell you how grateful I am! The costume is BEYOND perfect and he LOVES it! You must check out her shop she has the cutest diaper treats and special baby shower gifts!
Here is our Lil Angry Bird at his school Halloween parade on Friday..he was a little overwhelmed by all the costumes and change of schedule..he literally was an Angry Bird..hehe. But he did enjoy it towards the end .
I also found a mask at the Softie Cafe Etsy shop. He could not wear it to school, but will wear it for Halloween. Keeping my fingers crossed!
And yes that is an Angry Bird Pumpkin he is holding! Can’t take credit for this super cute idea. Staci at Lizard and Ladybug made the most adorable Angry Bird pumpkins ever..check out her post here. Julian stole..I am sorry borrowed her idea!
For his classroom treats I cheated (gasp!)..they are not handmade by mama. It was a super busy week and had to think of a plan B. I was so happy when found these adorably spooky containers at Michaels. I filled them with candy corn and added a special Happy Halloween tag made especially for our little Angry Bird fan!
So are you ready for tomorrow? Are you a last minute queen like me? Do you have a lil Angry Bird Fan too? And need some Happy Halloween Angry Bird inspired tags??! If so... download your free printables here!

Seven years ago today I married the love of my life.
I can’t believe it..really seven years??! I can still close my eyes and remember that perfect day like it was yesterday, where in front of God, family and friends we said “we do”.
I remember feeling very nervous before walking into the church, but as soon as those doors opened and I saw him smiling, his eyes tearing up and the love in his face. I was no longer nervous and for the first time ever I felt God’s presence..and just like that my worry was gone. All that mattered was us taking our vows, promising to love and cherish each other forever and ever!
And to think..it all started with one amazing kiss on the beach..13 years ago. I can still feel the butterflies in my stomach, the joy in my heart and the soft whisper of god telling me ‘HE will be your husband”. From that moment on, I knew he was the one, my heart was no longer mine..but his.
I am not sure what amazing thing I did in my prior life to deserve such a wonderful man. But I am beyond grateful, and thank god everyday for my Greg. He is such a loving and caring husband, my biggest supporter, fan, my best friend and the most amazing father ever.
I love that even after 13 years:
I can still look into his eyes and see nothing but LOVE
He still makes me feel like the prettiest girl in the room
He loves me just as I am, flaws and all..and would NEVER ask me to change
He still calls me everyday, just to tell me he loves me
We talk about everything and anything
Every love song is ours
He is so strong..yet so sweet
Together we get through the obstacles of life and he makes me feel safe
Our most perfect days are together..just us..just doing nothing
We still laugh..we still sweet talk..we still love
Today I reflect and rejoice on the seven happiest years of my life. Because of him.
