Song For Another Time by Old Dominion

Our last day in PA started with brunch with two of my best friends. After catching up with the girls, we packed up the car to drive to the hotel by the airport. Westminster is about an hour from the airport which is also very close to my sister's house so we moved so it would be a bit more convenient. We picked up lunch, my sister gave me a tour of her house, and then while Emma napped with grandpa and Jen's boyfriend, my mom, sister, and I did a little shopping. It was a very enjoyable way to end our trip.

I love the colors and floral pattern of this cardigan sweater from Target. I also keep being drawn to this cranberry/maroon color, which is always a staple for fall. So this look was pretty for brunch with the ladies and shopping, but comfortable for travel. The last pic is a selfie I took when we boarded the plane the next day. I didn't get a full picture of the hoodie, boyfriend jeans, and Converse I was wearing, but that outfit may be worn again soon anyway!

Ready for our flight back to St. Louis! We had a great long weekend with friends and family and can't wait to see you all again soon!

Forever Country by Artists of Then, Now, and Forever

The main reason for spending the weekend in Pittsburgh was Homecoming at my alma mater, Westminster College. And it was a busy day! We went to the parade, caught up with old friends, bought new Westminster gear, played with the band for the halftime show, met up with my Kappa Delta sisters, and watched the Titan football team win! And after all of that, our band director put together an alumni jazz band that rehearsed and gave a concert a few hours later! I haven't had a lot of time to play my trumpet recently, but loved being able to play with the marching and jazz bands.

Westminster's colors are navy blue and white so this sweater was perfect for the day! And my navy converse matched and were comfortable for all of the walking, standing, and chasing Emma that we did. Scroll down and you'll see the second outfit of the day, what I wore for the jazz concert!

We didn't get a photo together like usual, but she's all dressed up in her Westminster shirt!

Alumni back to play with the band!

Kappa Delta alumna! Sisters for life!

Playing with a plume! She was great entertainment for the band :)

I'm with the band

Titans win!!!

Since we played with them during the halftime show, the marching band performed their whole show at the end of the game. They sound and look awesome for a small college band.

We didn't go to Westminster at the same time but I'm glad we share the same alma mater <3

The college kids opened for the alums :)

First time our band director had both of the Peet sisters in the same band!

Finally back at the hotel for the night and somebody wanted a photo shoot in her gorgeous tulle skirt! (Its from Old Navy if your kiddo wants one too!)

If The Boot Fits by Granger Smith

Luckily we had a mostly free day on Friday. I was pretty tired from traveling with Emma by myself and was happy to relax with my parents in our hotel room. We did have a high school football game to attend that evening. My sister is the assistant marching band director for a local school district in Pittsburgh and it was their homecoming as well. It was a bit rainy, but Emma loved the band and we had a good time. When it was 35-0 going into the rainy fourth quarter, they put the mercy rule into effect and let the clock run out without stopping. So they didn't win, but we got to get out of the misty rain early! But the halftime show was great!!!

The high school's colors are navy and gold, so I had to represent. I was happy to wear one of my new hoodies so that I'd be warm and comfortable. I've always loved Abercrombie sweats, especially when I had the employee discount!

Star Of The Show by Thomas Rhett

So like I mentioned yesterday, Emma and I went away for the weekend. We packed our big suitcase and the two of us flew to Pittsburgh. Unfortunately hubs couldn't come with us because of work, but it was Homecoming at our alma mater, tickets were cheap and it was an alumni band year, so we went. My sister is also an alum of Westminster and my parents drove down for the weekend, so it was a weekend of family and friends. Our flight was direct from St. Louis to Pittsburgh and only two hours. However thats still a long time to have your one and a half year old toddler strapped to you in a baby carrier! But we did just fine, my parents picked us up at the airport, checked into the hotel, and met my sister and her boyfriend at my favorite place to get a burger and shake (hubs was jealous!). Seriously if you're in the Pittsburgh area, check out Burgatory. You won't be sorry!

What to wear while flying definitely varies by trip. It was on the hot side in MO and the cooler side in PA, I'd have Emma in the Tula for most of the time, and I'd be going through security. That meant, wear long jeans that can be rolled up and down for different temperatures, a simple light sweater that wouldn't require taking a jacket on and off and be toddler safe, and slip on shoes. I think this outfit fit the bill and still looked cute! Plus, Emma kept pointing at me and saying, "Bubba," which is her word for dog, which was adorable.

Big suitcase packed for two and my awesome Disney Vera Bradley backpack!

S'mores campfire shake... yummmm

Emma wanted to try it

She loved it

Mom, thanks for the best thing ever

And the burger! They have a great selection on their menu, but also give you the option to make your own with all of the ingredients they possibly have. This is a make your own. So good!!!

May We All by Florida Georgia Line feat. Tim McGraw

I'm back! I realize I never said anything about being gone for the weekend. Well Emma and I had a quick trip to Pittsburgh over the weekend to see family and friends. But I'll get to that tomorrow! I have this outfit to share first, from before we left. Hubs was on nights last week, but we had a chance to take a nice walk as a family before he had to go to work. Our time gets very limited when he's on an opposite schedule, so anytime we spend together during night float is important!

Shirt: Target / Jeans: American Eagle / Shoes: Target / Earrings: Old Navy / Watch: Coach

I'm wearing Emma and Hubs is walking Bentley, in the unfinished part of our neighborhood :)

Love my little family! <3

Wanna Be That Song by Brett Eldridge

I love fall weather, because that means scarf weather! I always feel like my outfits are more interesting with a scarf. Its a great way to make a statement. Doesn't this outfit kind of scream pumpkin spice? It says take me to a pumpkin patch, for a hayride, and to drink apple cider. Well I'm hoping to do all of those things soon, but we'll wait till hubs is not working nights or weekends and can join us! In the meantime, Starbucks and playground dates with our new friends will do!

A new Starbucks opened in town, so we had to check it out! They gave out free drinks while they were training so we enjoyed a Vanilla Bean Creme Frappacino

Moms and their kiddos at Starbucks

After Starbucks it was time for the kiddos to run around at the playground

Pure joy <3 

My big girl!
