Happy {belated} Halloween!

The weekends are always crazy for me with the husband and Audrey home, so this Halloweeny post is a couple of days late, yikes! I can't believe my weaksauce self is still pregnant. Just a few more days and baby will be considered full term! Thank you all for your sticky vibes!!!

I created this project for Purple Cows some time ago and it's finally been published on the Purple Cows blog and website.
