Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone is having an awesome Halloween!!
Us? Not so much :(
It's pouring down rain, and so very cold. So we opted to stay inside tonight instead of going trick or treating. I did set up some containers with candy in them around the house and let little Keira fill her bucket up with candy! I think she got like 3 pieces of candy before she was bored and wanted to eat her ghost poop :)
Hopefully it stops raining soon!
But for now, i'll leave you with this:
She wouldn't stand still long enough for me to take a good picture, but as soon as it gets sunny outside I will definitely get some!

Happy Halloween!

green colored chocolate
pretzel sticks 
yellow laffy taffy

Friday Favorites: Halloween Costumes!

Ok, so I think you all have figured out what one of my most FAVORITE holidays is! Halloween :)
I LOVE Halloween, and everything to do with this holiday! So it is only right for this Friday Favorites to deal with Halloween, right?! (Ok, just me?) Well one of my favorites parts about Halloween is all the costumes, I love to see what everyone comes up with, how creative they can be! 
This Friday's Favorite is:

You can see my pin board here! Go have a look around (and maybe follow me too :))!
There are more pinned on that board, but here are a few of MY favorites!

I think this is just WAY too cute!
I mean who doesn't love a baby lobster in a pot :) Hehe!

What little girl doesn't want to be a princess, you can see a full tutorial on how to make this Cinderella costume over on Make it and Love here. This was just last years costume, have you seen this years? Gorgeous, I just love her blog!

And of course you have to have Prince Charming! :)

Little baby Popeye is just adorable! I bet Olive Oil would LOVE him to pieces :)

Another one of my favorite bloggers, Dana, over at Made, always creates some amazingly cute costumes. Like these from last year! I love Alice in Wonderland!

There are so many more cute ideas out there, I could go on forever! (Just go look at my board, hehe!)
*Now i'm off to finish my little one's costume, finally*

Everyone have an Awesome Weekend!

Pumpkin Patch Time!

We went to the pumpkin patch this weekend! The weather was perfect and the girls loved it so much. This pumpkin patch was on a farm, so there were animals there for the girls to look at while we waited on the hay ride to the pumpkin patch.


This was our ride to the Pumpkin Patch!

Once we got there, the girls each picked out their own pumpkins!
They had so much fun!

Clothespin Days!

I have a ton of Clothespins just lying around. They are cheap and there are many, MANY uses for them. Well I thought what about magnetic daily clothespins! :) hmmm, I guess there could be a better name for them (maybe i'll think of a good one later!) You could basically use these anywhere for anything! 

So are you ready to make your own?
Here we go!
Grab 7 clothespins, a piece of cute paper, magnetic strips and some mod podge

I printed out the days of the week on a piece of paper, but you could just write it on there if you want.

Cut out the days into strips a little longer than the top of the clothespin

Mod podge the strips on the top of the clothespins, wrapping the little bit extra around the top and the bottom

Cut the magnetic strips into smaller pieces to stick on the back of the clothespins

Now stick them on your fridge!
*sorry the lighting in my TINY kitchen isn't all that great :(*

Now you can add little notes for appointments and such onto your fridge coordinating with the day!

Now go find some cute scrapbook paper and start crafting!!

Spooky Saturday! +Vampire Pumpkins

The weather here is PERFECT! I don't know about where you guys are, but here it is finally starting to cool off! So this morning I decided to take the girls to a farm so we could go on a hay ride and pick some pumpkins. We had a blast! Pictures to come :)

For this Spooky Saturday I made some Vampire Pumpkins *that you can keep* 
For these you need a fake pumpkin (I got mine from the dollar store for, yep you guessed it, a dollar), vampire teeth, black paint, buttons and glue.

I used a cheap paring knife to cut a place out of the styrofoam for the teeth, and I fitted the teeth in there to make sure that they fit.

Then glue the buttons on for the eyes, you could really use any size or color for these.

Then paint the inside of the mouth with black paint

Once the paint dries, insert the teeth with some hot glue
And there you have your cheap and easy vampire pumpkin!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!

These were inspired by this pin I found on Pinterest:

It's crazy just how fast life can pass you by if you let it. Sometimes you just need to SLOW DOWN and enjoy the moment that you are in, because you may never get a moment like this again.

Now i'm off to make a Halloween costume (instead of on here procrastinating, hehe) for my little Pumpkin :)

Oh No! Spooky Saturday!

Oh no! It's Sunday! I really am a procrastinator and I should really write my posts ahead of time in cases like this.. :( But I don't, I guess I will learn my lesson eventually! My computer died and I have nothing now. I know.. it's sad.
So I will make up for it this week, when my computer is fixed! 
*and maybe I will work on some future posts* (fingers crossed :))
I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!
