Happy Friday everyone, I hope you're enjoying a great short week! Are you ready for weekend? I have a busy day today and then I can't wait to dive into the weekend, which will include fun and games at the Stone Zoo (come join me!), marathon spectating, and Halloween costume making (I've got my mojo on thanks to this no-sew costume roundup!). Meanwhile, if you're looking for something to do, enjoy this roundup of 27 events!
As I said last week in my roundup of adorable free Halloween printables, I am so, ridiculously grateful for the creative people online who share their how-to's. Case in point, though I do own a sewing machine, it is, in fact, another piece of gear and another step if you're trying to DIY a costume. Today I wanted to share a roundup of 10 clever no-sew costumes, where your primary tools generally will be scissors and a glue gun. AWESOME.
So remember that college savings projection graph that blew my mind last month? As promised, I’m going to share some nuts and bolts about the 529 in a forthcoming post, but meanwhile, I wanted to invite you to come to the lovely Stone Zoo this Saturday, October 18, where MEFA and Fidelity will host their U.Fund Dreams Tour tent (which will be open from 10:00am to 3:30pm).
Happy Sunday! What a gorgeous day to celebrate, not only my birthday -- which Jon and the girls have made very festive -- but I'm seeing so many friends enjoying time with families or running first-ever races and personal bests on half and full marathons! Meanwhile, I'm dropping the Weekly Blueprint early since there are lots of great events happening during tomorrow's holiday and I'm going to be spotty online today and tomorrow. Enjoy!
Between Laurel doing Girls on the Run and Violet being a high energy preschooler, my girls basically don't stop moving. And this fall, they've been running around in New Balance (thanks, New Balance!), which always offers a colorful assortment of kicks for kids. But especially cute and deserving as a Friday Find pick? Their zoo-inspired infant/preschool sneaker collection; these adorable shoes feature easy on/off closure + lightweight styling that make it easy for kids to get up and go (and go, and go).
