Home Sweet Home

Nothing beats going home. Home being where your family is. Where you feel grounded again. Going home is needed especially when you are having a rough week. Woof. What a doozy! Is it really only Wednesday? I can't really name the overall comfort I feel when I get to spend the night at my moms. I guess that means I haven't fully grown out of being looked after by my parents. Does this ever happen? Last night I immediately got in my pjs and ate some ice cream when I got there. It was perfect. 

Another benefit is playing with my puppy. Look at the cute little face! 

Any ways besides having a stressful week and needing a break, I needed to make the trip back home to vote. I will be visiting my brother and SIL the weekend before the election and don't want to risk missing the big day. So today I will go vote absentee! Don't forget to do the same if you will be out of town. I think last election I was away at college and forgot to get my ballot notarized but sent it in anyways. Oops.

On the way back to my place this afternoon I plan on getting supplies to make my halloween costume. I'll make sure to take pictures of the process but hopefully the end results look like this.

I found this gem on pinterest and decided to try it out. It involves me being crafty so it could get interesting!


  1. Home is a fantastic retreat if it has always been that sort of place for you. The past year and half has been a little rough for me, so I sought the comfort of my parent's house often. It is nice to know that it is always there :)

  2. Oh, I loved going home when I was in college. I've actually moved back, and really enjoy it! So awesome being able to see my parents on a weekly basis!

    Good luck on the's going to look super cute!

  3. I love the idea for the costume!! So cute!!

  4. I saw that costume on pinterest & thought about making it but I decided to go with the loofa instead! That's so cute!

  5. Just stumbled across your blog and girl, I could not agree any more with you about nothing beating or getting any better than being home! I 100% agree! I wish I was able to make it home more, but living 19 hours away doesn't make that happen too often. But, it is definitely the most amazing feeling when I do!

    Love the costume by the way! So crafty and clever!
