HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

31 Oct

I love Halloween and have been busy with my costumes and Halloween plans so sorry for the lack of posts.

This year I had two costumes. One for parties and one for work. Anytime I can get away with wearing comfy clothes to work I take it so I decided to be a Ninja. And I must say it’s very fun carrying around fake swords!

My other costume is a dead bride. I have two Halloween events to go to this year so I get to wear it twice!

So everyone enjoy Halloween, dress up (you are never too old) eat candy, watch scary movies and carve some pumpkins!

It’s the Small Things

26 Oct

This week I finally got into the Halloween Spirit (and candy)!

Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love the feel, look and smell of it. You know the smell, when you can smell Fall or a wood stove for the first time….. That always reminds me of Halloween.

This week I am grateful for fun Halloween decorations

Halloween Pumpkins

The American Horror nights with the Husband and our friend Cannon! We started watching American Horror last year and making fun food, drinking wine and hanging out! Such fun nights!

Cannon and me!

The Pretty Little Liar Halloween special was this week! And if that was not great on its own, my friend and fellow blogger Arantha came over to watch with me. We made a fun fall fruit and cheese plate,  ate some rotisserie chicken and drank some red wine. Everything was healthy until we broke into the Halloween candy and made ourselves sick because we ate too much.  I guess you never learn…..

I also enjoyed two pets with their tongues sticking out.

Have a great weekend!

Paper Dahlias

16 Jul

I made these Paper Dahlias for the baby shower. I got the template and idea on Martha Stewarts website.

I changed it up a little bit – because as much as I wish I was Martha, I am poor. I also don’t know how well Dahlia’s will do in the New Mexico heat. So instead of putting actual Dahlia buds I used Blow Pops. Martha says fancy plant, I say edible sugar!

Here is where you can go to get directions and the template to cut out the paper flowers.
