Hope you all had a good one. I know we sure did!

On My Butterfinger...
That is right I made homemade butterfingers. Minus the perfect crunch that makes a butterfinger a butterfinger-that taste is spot on. I made them last night and let's just say I need to LAY off! Here is the recipe for all of you that want to try it yourselves-it is so easy and delicious. I tried it with milk chocolate and semi-sweet and I have to say I liked the semi-sweet. They tasted like a cross between a Reisen and Butterfinger. I also made mine a little thinner so the ratio of peanut butter/candy corn to chocolate was larger. With all the candy corn laying around it is a perfect Halloween treat. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do-definitley not helping with baby weight!

You all think I am obsessed. Well it looks to me like my better half is right there with me. Maybe even passing-well maybe not quite yet. I think within the last three months there have been 6 new purchases. I think we have some issues to work out here in the Smart household. What about you? Are you shoe obsessed? Are you spilling out of your closet? I want to see. Take a picture and email me and I'll post them here! Can't wait to see so I can feel better about myself, well and my husband.

As I mentioned earlier, now that I feel like I actually may survive two kids and the fact that I'm in baby prison still a little-I've been craftin' it up. I DO NOT consider myself a crafty person, but with the heroin addiction that is Pinterest, how can you not get the bug. I took an idea and then put my own twist on it. We needed a pillow that tied in my oldest daughters bed with the baby bedding and crib we currently had.
I just used a pillow I already had, sewed a peach cover with fabric I had used for the chandelier cord cover and free handed some felt trees that I tacked and hand stitched on. I think it worked out pretty well and all with materials I already had. Not sure when and what the next project will be, but I'm sure with the cooler weather (well for CA), holidays and multiple children I will find a few more things make.

I am so sad to see these beauties go! They were one of my favorite shoes from last year's fall line. I only have one pair left and sadly it is a size 11. I sure wish it was 7 or anything close to that. I would make my foot fit in whatever size, but 11 is a bit of a stretch for me. If you are between a 10 & 11 or know any one that is let me know, you will not be disappointed. Even if that means you have to stick a little moleskin back there to make them work!

It has been 6 weeks since having my baby and I have been dying to get crafting again. Let's just say with 2 girls that has been nothing short of challenging! With Halloween just around the corner I forced myself to get going. I found these cute ideas from my friend Megan's blog The Thirteenth and then put my own twist on it. Thanks for the ideas Megan. I was having a hard time deciding what to make but these ended up being so cute, easy & cheap. All things I love!
With the leftover bats I threw them on here to tie it all in. I am still planning to make some hanging bats over my front door and a wreath. Let's just hope it is not the day before Halloween when that actually happens.

My gorgeous friend Whitney and her 3 sisters just recently started a new blog about anything from style to snippets from their family life. Well today I checked it out and guess who was mentioned?! Whitney tried to tell me that she had too many heels and needed more flats for work. However, I was able to convince her that these were way too cute and actually really comfortable to pass up. So glad she decided to get them and I think she is too. They look adorable they are with this outfit. Love the new blog Whitney and you and your sisters. For other cute shoes like these click here.
