Five on Friday :: Pumpkins, Ghosts & Bumps


We WILL get to a pumpkin patch this weekend if it kills me.  The past two weekends we have been stuck at home seeing everyone's cute pumpkin pics online.  So rain or shine, we are going to be posing with some dang pumpkins!  Watch Instagram @chelseapurifoy to see if this happens...


Jack and I made these footprint ghosts for all of his grandparents and his nanny last week. They turned out so cute and were very easy. Jack enjoyed playing with messy paint too!


I just finished reading Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.  I read it because I had to for a book discussion with a group of middle school girls that I mentor, but selfishly ended up loving it {and so did the girls}. 

I think my next book will be Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl.  Has anyone read it yet? 


On Tuesday, I was lucky enough to attend the Bump, Baby & Beyond event hosted by The Bump and Houston Moms Blog. The event was really geared for expectant moms, but I have lots of expectant friends and hope to be expecting again at some point so I figured this was for me too! 

I met lots of great Houston mamas-to-be and would deem the event a major success! I even won a set of plates, cups and utensils by Re-Play - Jack loves! Sara won an Ubbi Diaper Pail and my other friend who attended won a Boppy Pillow and matching nursing cover! 


Don't forget to link-up on Tuesday if you participated in the Scarf Swap!  I can't wait to see everyone in their new scarves!  I'm dying to wear mine - let's hope for cooler temps soon or I'll be that girl in a tank, shorts and cozy scarf...maybe I'll even add some Uggs.  I'll admit that I was that girl who wore Ugg Boots and shorts in college.

Have a Happy Friday and Lovely Weekend,


Linking up:



  1. I have that Lena Dunham on hold at the library!

    1. Happy Friday! I'll have to report back and let you know how the book is.

  2. I'm wanting to read that book, so let me know what you think about it. And it looks like Avery's first pumpkin patch trip this year is a no go. Oh well... we will do it next year! AND, be on the lookout for a package at your door maybe tomorrow. =)

    1. Yes! I will report back on the book. Boo on the pumpkin patch, but at least you got some super cute pumpkin pictures. You should have a package at your doorstep on Monday! Hope you love it!

  3. Those footprint ghosts are the cutest!!! And I've heard good things about that book, but haven't read it! Happy Friday!

    1. Cute + easy = my kinda craft! Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Super cute ghost prints! We have some from last year {I didn't do them clearly b/c I am not a crafty person - their school did ;) } but love everything hand/feet print related. Glad you guys are fully on the mend. I'll be on the lookout for pumpkin patch pictures! Oh, and last thing: missed you on Tuesday! Count down until December unless we can meet up before then! xo
