This was the best week ever – I am so obsessed with Halloweeen! I wish we could dress up in costumes every week. And I guess we can — and should haha. But really Halloween with two kids was such a blast. We went to a few parties and festivities and each one we did a new costume.. I think my favorite was Hillary and Trump. When we went to go take pictures of them they were so in character and I thought Rosie would hate her little wig but she just kept smiling and loving the attention haha! It was hilarious. Although at the party towards the end she realized – what is this thing on my head? and finally pulled it off.

I will definitely miss Halloween in the city. I love that streets close down and all of the stores are giving out candy. And all of the decorated stoops are too good to be true.. its a really fun time of year here! BUT I am soooo excited to have a home of our own and to finally be able to go all out and decorate! I know we technically can in the city but there is no space to store Halloween decorations after the fact so it seems a bit wasteful to get decorations only to get rid of them after each year. So yay for having a garage with endless holiday decor!

Also we got our test results back from my surgery and the lump was benign so we were happy about that!! I was assuming it was the whole time but it does feel good to hear it officially 🙂 We went to Utah to have it removed because… long story. But the short version is that I turned 26 this year and got kicked off my parents insurance and for whatever reason am not eligible for new insurance until December 1st.. soo I have to pay cash for everything and to get a lump removed in NYC it is 5 times the price. And its already a pretty expensive procedure so needless to say we saved a lot of money just having my doctor in Utah do it. The kids were such troopers coming all the way out there with me on red eyes both ways. I was feeling sick about leaving them since I had just left them to do the extension shoot in Utah. So David and the kids came with me and I was so happy to have them there with me.

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!!!!!!!

  1. I love your ideas! Where did you get the white skirt for the bo peep costume or know the brand?

  2. Please let me know where you purchased your bo peep costume ? I’m having a hard time finding one as cute as that !!!! Thanks so much !!! 😉

      1. Thanks so much ! I found a similar one but the skirt is so short .. not Mom appropriate lol ! Did you find the skirt on there as well ?

  3. Such great costumes! Where are the adorable little bo peep costumes from that you and Rosie wore?!!

      1. I found the sheep costume for my 7 month old and can’t wait for her to wear it but I was unable to find your top. Can you share the brand or name of your tip? Thank you!

      2. I’ve been looking everywhere for a good little bo peep costume and this one is def the best. However, I am not finding it on Amazon. Do you know the name or brand? Thanks so much!

  4. Hey! I don’t know if you’ll get this but I came across your little lamb outfit on Pinterest where did you find it or how did you make it? It’s my daughters first Halloween and I have found the little lamb idea or a zombie mom and baby(baby coming out of her shirt)

  5. Can you tell me where you got the dragon costume for A? Looking for something similar for my 2 year old 🙂

    1. We found it on Amazon!! Wish I had the link but I don’t see it anymore! Sorry.. wish I was more help 🙂

      1. No problem! If you are by chance wanting to sell any of your family Halloween costumes I would be happy to buy them! I’m trying to buy more things second hand ☺️

  6. The little Bo peep and sheep costume! You really nailed Halloween altogether! Awww I love your family! so cute Xxx

  7. Loved all the costumes. Hilary and Trump were the best ??

  8. Im SO happy to hear the surgery went well and that the results were benign! My thoughts were with you. It takes a lot to open up to an internet full of strangers about the not so glamorous “real life” aspects behind the camera. But I wanted to thank you for being brave and doing it, because I know it helps a lot of us to hear about you going through similar experiences. Also, your halloween costumes are goals. I was in love with the trump/clinton costumes. So clever!

  9. Such wonderful costumes! Loved everyone, cannot wait to see what’s in store for next year 🙂

  10. Yaaay I am so happy the surgery went well, so amazing <3 ! You guys honestly rock Halloween as well, I was in awe over your instagram posts ! My favorite of course has to be Danny and Khal Drogo because I went as Daenerys this year as well haha so of course I'm bias ! They were all amazing though <3 Can't wait to see what you guys come up with next year !


  11. You all looked great with your Halloween costumes !!! I especially love when you dressed up as The Incredibles !!! Rosie and Atticus are adorable as always ! Love ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  12. So good to hear that the lump was benign and that the surgery went well. And wonderful to have your family come along with you. Very happy for you! Also, these Halloween costumes are out of this world! I didn’t think it could get any cuter than A and Chauncey in their lion costumes… but the Hillary and Trump costumes take the cake! Also the rest of them. Love how you went all out on different costumes for each event – Thank you for sharing!! xoxo

  13. Oh goodness! These pictures are the most precious and so adorable!
    So happy the lump was benign! You must feel so relieved now!
    You have a beautiful heart Amber and I love coming back to your blog over and over again!

    Bisous from Montréal


  14. SUCH cute photos!! I can’t decide which is my favorite!! I feel you with the insurance woes… I turned 26 this past year and HOLY was that a shock. I really took for granted being on my parent’s health plan. It is so outrageous. I live in Boston which is similar pricing to NYC I can imagine. The joys of going home to our rural towns… I totally do the same thing haha.

  15. Love all of your costumes especially the GoT! It was like the Halloween grande finale – well done! So glad to hear the results were positive! I can understand why you’ll miss New York but I bet no longer having to travel elsewhere to get cheaper prices is a “pro column” reason to move. ? And I can’t wait to get a peek in the process of your home build. I hope that doesn’t make me sound like a total creeper…

  16. hahahaha the Trump and Clinton costumes are the best! Never thought I would think of Trump as a cutie lol :p:p:p
    Love that you had like a gazillion costumes!

    And of course great news on the lump!! Those things are scary as hell when you think about it…

  17. Bonjour Amber,
    This is my first comment right here. I’m french so I don’t have a good english. But I follow you from the beginning. I’m just so happy for your good results of surgery. I find your blog Beautiful and you and your family are a wonderful example to love and happiness. You are a real inspiration. Have a nice day. Bisous. Aurore

  18. I love how cute your incredibles outfits were! Absolutely adorable xoxo

  19. I absolutely loved all your costumes! You guys look like you’re having so much fun! I really hope I get to go to NYC someday to visit all the places you suggest and Halloween sounds like such a fun time of the year!

  20. Your costumes are amazing!! Can’t tell you how happy I am to hear of your good news. Gosh you guys are so loved. Hope you know and can feel it always. All my love

  21. Your costumes are so amazing, each one of them. So fun halloween in NYC, and that you got different costume for each party.
    I am so glad it was benign, and that David was there with you and the kids.
    PS: I was also Khalessi and had one dragon for halloween. I love GOT and Khalessi, and your hair is totally khalessi on point!

  22. Amber I am so glad you are ok and the lump was benign. I am a worry freak- my mind goes to the worst case scenario and I am a complete mess when it comes to me or my families health- especially anything to do with cancer. Of course, that means my faith is shaky because we have to know God is in control at all times. Life is tricky like that-things can change in a moment and our life comes crashing down on us. My dad just passed away in a car accident in August- he was 53. It was and still is such a shock to our family, we were so close with him. My kids miss him too everyday. It has been so hard accepting little by little, everyday, that he isn’t here anymore. It just goes to show we must prioritize our life in such a way that is worthy of our calling as Christians! Wishing you and your family all the best today and always ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Ps love love love all your beautiful clothes, your cute kids, your lovely home! You’re quite talented and an inspiration ?

    1. Thank you so much Elena! I was so thankful it was not worse. And wow I am so sorry to hear about your dad, I bet that is still so hard for you and your family. You have such a positive outlook on life and I admire that. I am sure he is missed by many. Love you! Thanks for the kind words. xoxo

  23. So many amazing costumes! But I have to agree the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton costume is also my favorite! Hilarious!! xoxox

  24. All of these costumes are amazing! However my favourite one is definitely The Incredibles. It`s so sweet that even Chauncey got a costume.
    And I am so happy to hear that your lump was benign. Hope you enjoy your last month in NYC <3

  25. So happy that the lump was benign! I had a scare this year too and after extensive testings everything was okay but it is scary and it makes you appreciate every day life. You have a wonderful family and the Halloween costumes are so much fun! Loved Donald and Hillary and Little Bo Peep. Wishing you continued good health and happiness xxx

    1. Thanks so much Debra! I was so relieved with the good news. So glad yours was just a scare too! It really can be put things into perspective. Thanks for the sweet comment!! xo

  26. It’s on my bucket list to spend Halloween in New York city! so amazing that streets get closed for the festivities and everyone goes all out. You and Rosie as little bo peep and her little sheep is the absolute cutest and Aticus and Rosie play the part of Hillary and Donald extremely well! So glad to hear that your bump was benign! x
    Your blog is easily my favourite out there, have a wonderful day x x x
