coffee chat {no.3}

Hi friends! 
It's been awhile since we pulled up a [completely fictitious] chair and just chatted together. Obviously over coffee, but that's basically what's always in my cup. And I guess since I'll be doing all the talking, this is like a meet up with that friend that doesn't let you get a word in edgewise.
Bless. Come chat with me anyway, haha! 


So October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month! If you're just  recently tuning in or have been living under some sort of rock, you might not know that my 14 month old daughter, Eliza, was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. She is the best baby and has her own corner of the interwebz over at Expecting Eliza. I've had fun so far, sharing some tidbits about spina bifida with the world. It's something that gets very little information passed around, and I hate that! Hop over to her blog and learn something new with a few of the quick infographics I've been creating! 


I've recently become obsessed with these bars... 

I don't even know what you'd call them? Fruit bars? Every bar has an apple, ten cherries and some chia seeds. They're delicious, which is why I eat them. But they're also kinda of healthy, which is why I keep buying them and patting myself of the back about what a great, health conscious eater I am. Feel free to roll your eyes at that one. 

Pretty much everywhere carries them near the health food snacks. Or here's a company link in case you want to buy a case of 100... I'm considering it. 


Also in October? Halloween! I can't believe it's right around the corner! I'm a total slacker this year because, while I've planned out our entire costume theme, all my supplies are still in the exact same pile they were six weeks ago. We have our family Halloween with the kids, an adult Halloween party, and are even planning to house a decorated trunk at our church's Light the Night trunk or treat festival! Clearly I need to get myself into gear or I'll be a constantly behind stay-at-home mom for Halloween. 
But I'll answer what you're wondering... yes, it's another year of family themed costumes. And since you're reading ahead of time, I'll even spill the beans. Prepare yourself for the Wilder Family Circus!


Over the holiday weekend, we went on a family trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama! The weather was so perfect for a beach trip and my sweeties adore playing in the sand and watching the ocean. Our last morning there, Eliza was literally blowing it kisses! 


Other than my front porch, I've done a pitiful job of decorating for fall.
These other folks have things looking pretty spectacular! Let's live vicariously through them!

I hope your fall is full of pumpkins and costumes and football and thankfulness!
