Halloween is almost here and if you’re like me you are scrambling for a costume idea. Lucky for you I’m here to help with my good friend Amazon Prime. If you’re outside the loop that means you can get all this stuff delivered to your door in two days if you’re a prime member. This post is not sponsored by Amazon but they are affiliate links. If you use them I’ll get a small amount that I can use to buy giant spider rings. My default costume over the years has always been a witch (or ladybug but we’ll leave that alone for now!). It’s a classic choice for a reason. A witch costume is recognizable, easy and there are a million ways to make it your own.
On Saturday Mary finally had her dream birthday party. We had her Halloween spider party at the town park; despite a very wet and dreary start to the day the weather tuned around and it ended up being a beautiful day. We had spiders and spider webs everywhere, even on the cake and taco dip! Irving the spider pinata made another appearance and everyone had a great time.

Even though Mary’s birthday is in late November we’re having her party in early October. Last year she had a generic Halloween party (with the worlds best spider pinata). She’s going to be 4 this year and she’s got a lot of opinions now! I loved having her help planning the party this year. She decided on a spider party, with a blue cake. What can I say? The kid loves Halloween! Mary has also been waiting impatiently to make some spider invitations. [Read more…]
Halloween is my favorite day of the year, I love going all out for the holiday just like my mom did when I was a kid. That may explain why I’ve had life sized skeleton on my Christmas list for years. I thought it would be fun to move it around and put in funny situations. So when Oriental Trading Company reached out to send me some Halloween decorations I was thrilled. This was my chance to have my very own skeleton. It was only right that he be the feature of my front yard this year.

I was recently sent a copy of the book Harvest by Stefani Bittner & Alethea Harampolis to review. I received the book for free as part of the blogging for books program, all of the ideas and opinions presented here are mine and unbiased.
First off, I’m a sucker for a beautiful book. The photography in this alone makes it worthy of a spot on my book shelf. Harvest is a mix of cookbook, craft book and garden manual. It covers 47 different crops and gives you many creative ideas that you can easily swap ingredients for. [Read more…]
