Fun Fall Activities Across the United States, Canada, & The UK #Fall4SoFab

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Fall is pumpkin spice everything, cooler weather, football, vibrant foliage, sweaters & boots. It's spending time outdoors with the family, hunting for the perfect pumpkin in a patch of hundreds, getting lost in a corn maze and hitching a hay ride. 

The creative blogger of Social Fabric have collaborated to build an extensive list of tons of fun fall activities to do with your family across the United States, Canada, and even the UK. From sight seeing to harvest festivals, there's a little bit of something for everyone to do this Fall. 
Just consider yourself warned ahead of time- reading this list will probably inspire you to take a cross county road trip!

Laziest DIY Costume Ever- Three Hole Punch Version of Jim Halpert from The Office

Friday, September 25, 2015

Fans of The Office will totally get this costume. 
Dressing as Three Hole Punch Version of Jim is sort of ironic, since it's a lazy costume of someone dressed in a lazy costume. And also, it's hilarious.

As part of Homecoming week this year at my sons high school, one of the dress up days was Hollywood and TV Characters. 

Last year, he went as 
Barnacle Boy from Spongebob, and this year we ran out of time to come up with something amazing but as it turns out, being Jim Halpert was a hit. 

In case you're not too familiar with the awesomeness that Jim Halpert's costumes were on The Office, just take a look. They're literally the most fantastic and lazy costumes EVER. 

To make your own:

White dress shirt with sleeves rolled up
Black tie
Black pants 
Black belt
Cut three circles from black paper and safety pin them on
Oh, and don't forget to flip your hair out over your ears for the most authentic Jim look you can get.
You can also save & print this name tag if you'd like, and pin it to your shirt-

Upon first glance, I knew
Space Boy and His Dog by Dian Curtis Regan would capture my kids attention.
The clever combination of comic book style writing & colorful illustrations, outer space, a bit of sibling rivalry, and the promise of a grand adventure, and my boys were hooked from the beginning.

Among the Fair Magnolias- Four Southern Love Stories

Thursday, August 27, 2015

One of my 
recommend reading books for Summer 2015 is Among the Fair Magnolias- Four Southern Love Stories. This is a collection of four historic and romantic novellas by Christian authors Tamera Alexander, Dorothy Love, Shelley Gray, and Elizabeth Musser.
Just as the gorgeous cover and title depict, the novellas all sweep you into the deep South, towards the end of the 19th Century and the Civil War. There's a little something for every fan of historic fiction in this collection- outlaws, impossible infatuations, rags to riches, and arranged marriages.

This review is a bit long (it is for four stories, after all), but hang in there till the end, you'll be glad you did…
