Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

consigning halloween @ohbotherblog So I have a confession: I'm totally lazing out this Halloween. I mean, let's be honest. Holden still has no idea what's going on. She doesn't really "like" anything enough to want to wear it for Halloween. And we don't have huge Halloween plans anyway.

So, I went the consignment shop route this year.

I found a really cute ladybug sweatsuit costume for $7.95. Ladybugs are kind of a thing in my family. I figure she can wear that for any cold-weather events, like handing out candy on the front porch (I doubt we'll actually go trick or treating. She obviously can't eat candy. Plus, my husband is out of town during the week so we have to be home to hand out the candy).

And I picked up a little green fairy dress, also for $7.95. I figure I can pretend she's Tinkerbell or something. My cousin's daughter is having a Halloween-themed birthday party so this will be her costume for that.

Whatever. They're still cute costumes, right? And shoot, I only spent $16. Maybe next year I'll go all out for Halloween. This year I'm just too tired.
