My baby girl is 4.

For Miss Maddie's birthday this year, we kept it pretty simple.
We're new here, we don't know anyone really, she was happy.
She requested a Dora themed birthday and a rainbow cake, so that is what she got!
We played a little hide & seek-she thought that was hilarious!
Fin is just silly.
Caught Fin picking his nose.
She of course took her hair down.
We had a pinata, daddy was a good sport and just held it for them.
Daddy finally had to help them with it.
And a bit of the pinata candy went into the Halloween trick or treat bowl.
What are two kids going to do with THAT much candy?! I mean really.
Overall, it was a good day. She enjoyed herself and felt special.

Fall and Autumn.

Let me just say how EXCITED!! I am that it's actually FALL!  It's been pretty hot and coming from Alaska, it's been really weird having super hot weather in October! So now that it's finally fall here I am completely loving it! LOVING IT!!
Seriously, it was highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s!! That's amazing weather for me.
I'd appreciate if it was a bit cooler in the afternoon but it does have that nice fall breeze to it.
It's already snowed in Alaska and they're already getting NEGATIVE weather!!
Anyway. I'm rambling. You should know by now that I do that quite often
Now that I've rambled about Fall, I'd like you to meet Autumn!

Name? Autumn Bee
Why'd you choose this blog name? I'm a busy mom of two, trying to run my hive as smoothly as possible!
Why do you blog? I blog to share the things I love with people who appreciate similar interests and meet people who inspire creativity and passion in what they love and do.
How long have you been blogging? I started blogging over a year ago. I had a fashion blog, but ended up taking a long break after having my kids, one day I decided to start up again and have been writing my current blog since April.
Tell me 5 random things about you.
I'm a history buff, completely obsessed with Marie Antoinette. I watch History and PBS 24/7
For my graduation present I was given a trip to Paris and Frankfurt Germany (where my aunt lives)
I am a huge "fangirl" when it comes to Cher
I still watch Spice World on VHS...frequently.
Amy Duncan from Good Luck Charlie is my role model. She is hysterical!
And your favorite go to outfit. Tank top, Cardigan, Jeans, Boots/Flats depending on the weather!
And book or movie-which is better? Book, always.
Favorite ice cream flavor? Mint Chocolate Chip
Favorite season and why? The Fall! I may be a tiny bit bias, but birthday months are the best!

The Messy Project-the big reveal!

Have you guys met Kelly?
If not you are SERIOUSLY missing out.
She's so darn sweet and just adorable and not to mention she's a genius!
Know why she's a genius? Cuz she came up with The Messy Project and it's flipping AWESOME!
I had the privelage to be a part of it this month!
I jumped at the chance not long after she started it and good thing I did, I only had to wait like 3 months instead of 0476204398 like you guys probably will now.

The Deal:1 Top
5 Girls
5 Different Looks
1 Major Blog Post Day

Anyway, I about DIED when my package arrived! Seriously, so excited!
My husband looked at me like I was a crazy person when I got it.

Anyway for my outfit I turned the dress into a skirt and
paired it with a tank top, a blazer and some knee high boots.
I think so.
David told me I looked pretty.
I felt pretty.

What do you think?!
Good, huh?!
I was a bit nervous about it, but I wore it out and about all day and just felt awesome!
Yay new clothes!
Yay awesome outfit!

This is what my husband makes me do. *sigh*
He's an annoying photographer, for real.
He just clicks over and over and over again without letting me pose or smile or anything.
After this day I ordered a tripod and clicker.

He also got slightly distracted and started taking random pictures of his dog.

Jacket: similar
Tank top: f21
Dress: similar & similar

I also had some amazing girls this month!
Be sure to check out their posts and how they wore the dress!

Hey guys. Hey!!
Today I wanna talk about Halloween and it's awesomeness.
I love Halloween. I love dressing up the kids and letting them help decorate the house.
They get super excited.
And it's just fun to be a bit spooked sometimes.
It's fun to dress up.
Fun to decorate.
I love Halloween!
And just wait until you see the bittles' costumes. Oh my goodness, cute!

On that note, I also asked these awesome ladies to tell me their favorite thing about Halloween as well.
Of course you are.
Otherwise you wouldn't be here.

My favorite thing about Halloween is definitely the candy - I have a major sweet tooth! I have never been into dressing up but now that I have a daughter I am excited about picking out her costumes. I also love the cooler weather this time of year :)

This is Madison

Hey I'm Madison. My blog was started to off my 'overly ambitious' self since I always start projects but never finish or fail miserably at the ones I do try. Craft projects and I just don't get along but I really do try! It's also where I like to be my usual, quirky, dorky self. Harry Potter, Pokemon, and internet memes are some of the things featured regularly on my blog. Hope you come stop by and geek out with me :)

My favorite thing about Halloween is totally the candy. This is our second year in our house so I'm excited to be able to pass out candy again. Previously we always lived in apartments so we never had anyone stop by(but we still bought a bucket's worth of candy for ourselves, of course!). Seeing all of the neighbor kids dress up in their cute costumes and say "trick or treat" is just the best thing ever.

Madison is a dork but in a good way! She's Harry Potter obsessed which I love and
she even has a little craft fail section. Check it out.

This is Emily

What's up Little Bittle readers?  My name is Emily but call me E-Ho.  I live in Canada.  I blog over at Hope Squared about life. design.  and travel.  But sometimes about my cat.  Usually about my cat.  I also like sewing.  And aprons.  And sometimes baking.  Basically I am your average potpourri blogger.
Favourite thing about Halloween: The candy!  Especially Rockets - thought in America I think they are called Smarties. Smarites in Canada are chocolate covered candy.  Why is that?

Random photo dump.

That was a random photo dump

I had a real post planned to type up but then my smallest ittle bittle decided to shit himself 4x in one day causing a nasty diaper rash and super grumpy baby.

Also, you should go HERE and buy an ad. All Ad space sales will actually go to David's Christmas present. Shh. Don't tell him but he's either getting a kindle fire or a tattoo fund depending on how much I can manage to save by then.
