Halloween 2014

What a Halloween!! I hope everyone had a great night of family, friends, and fun. Andrew and I definitely got all three 🙂

We started the night nice and early with a 4pm dinner, and then costume time.

our night included running all over St Louis, but in a good way! We headed to my grandparents and parents first.

Next, we headed out to trick or treat for almost 2 hours. Then to a bonfire with church friends, and finally circled back to my parents. Andrew was spending the night so that I could go to a costume party!

My mom LOVES Halloween. She always came up with the best costumes when I was a kid, so when I came over with my Queen of Hearts costume and ideas, she was allllll over it.

It was super easy to make and only took a few hours.

There was a little malfunction. The glue for the eye lases was dried out, so you know what we used. Molasses with a quetip. and it worked like a charm!

My costume was super cheap to make as well. I just had to buy the tulle, paper to make the hearts, and gold paint. That was it!I already had the head band, black dress, leggings, eye lashes, and shoes.

This is where I found my ideas:

skirt

-hat

Question for you:

Did you dress up for Halloween?

What was your favorite costume as a kid?

We then headed over to show the family

And time to head out!

Decorating w/ Mr Flowers and 3 kids

I absolutely love decorating, so when Mr Flowers and the girls came to visit, it was time to get ready for the Fall and Halloween!

This has become my favorite time of year

We started inside

This is a creepy crawling spider (he actually crawls down the wall….)

Then Mr Flowers and I started outside..

And this is what the kids did….

Mr flowers also took some great pictures (proof that I helped! haha)

My favorite part. We had these lights as kids

The finished product!

And its pretty scary at night….

Next up, pumpkins!

Halloween Recipes

A week ago, I knew I was going to have the girls over, and we needed some yummy food. So I went to handy dandy google.com and found some and I thought I would share!

~~~~

The veggie tray made easy!

Ingredients: Carrots, cucumber, and ranch dressing. SO easy and SUPER cute!

Of course you could do this with the dip too!

~~~~

Our course, if you have candy corn these recipes are perfect!

The chocolate covered pretzels were are extremely easy, and delicious

(and of course I love them because of the sprinkles!)

 The next recipe includes candy corn for another yummy dessert

I haven’t tried this recipe YET. But it looks absolutely AMAZING!!!!

 wouldnt this be perfect on yogurt or oatmeal?!!?!

~~~

And last but not least, the Jack-o’-lantern!

I made this for the girls on Sunday, and it was DEMOLISHED!

 Question for you:

What did you eat for halloween?

hApPy HaLlOwEen

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

Ours was very low key until it was time to trick or treat!

My son’s halloween costume turned out PERFECT!

Well it all started with a box…..
 

After a little red spray paint, yogurt cup tops, and glue, the box finally came together and turned into a LEGO!!!

 the glue was used to write lego on the yogurt containers, and then spray paint on top when it was dry.

  It turned out to be a really good night w/ perfect weather

We went to visit family, and ran into my uncle. Who loves halloween (as well as my mom and me) He is the scary guy in the cage- that Andrew didnt want to go by. Imagine that!

 Im in love with a lego ❤

 I love halloween decorations, so when I saw this house I was so impressed!

Each one was a different color light, and they are made out of foam, can you believe that?!?!

 I will say. I would much rather carve a REAL pumpkin. But they were still very impressive

 I got home with some candy and a very tired Lego

 (my mom gave him the book)

I know some of you also remember the brown dress I was looking for, while I was a hamburger. It didn’t turn out as planned, but I still thought I was pretty original

 

 

Sorry its blurry. But around the middle, I had dark fabric for the hamburger and fabric to make lettuce, cheese, and a tomato. I then had a necklace that had a mcdonalds container and french fries. David was robin hood.

Question for you:

– What is your favorite candy?

I love twix!

– Would you rather carve a real pumpkin or the foam one that you can keep for years?

 

 

 

 

 

 

halloween cake!

hello blogging friends!!! Im sorry I have been MIA this week. I hate that I haven’t been blogging, but I have been working or there is NOTHING interesting that you want to hear about.

Last night after work, I met with David at the Majestic Restaurant and Bar for some food and beer. And of course to watch the cardinals!

I changed and put on makeup at work 🙂

picture taken at home

(Who, at this exact moment, are in the 7th game and WINNING! YEA!)

We were both exhausted and ending up leaving around 10. yes we are old. And I almost feel asleep in a restaurant. Of course I went home and got my pjs on, and we texted the rest of the game. haha

Funny fact: David Freese was up to bat in the bottom of the 11th inning. I sent a message “I bet he hits a home run.  I can feel it” Message sent. And then HE HIT A HOME RUN TO WIN THE GAME!!!! I must be psychic haha

Today I woke up and ran A MILLION errands:

  • Grocery store.
  • Target
  • Took my grandma to two grocery stores
  • Hardware store
  • Old Navy (found a new brown dress that will work better for halloween)

My grandma is helping me with the costume, and it looks pretty good. Im going out with David tomorrow night, so I hope to have pictures than. (and then maybe he can make his first appearance on here…but we’ll see)

I also picked this up at the grocery store for 10 bucks! I think it might work in my room!

I also got these ingredients….can you guess what im going to make? haha

even though I was busy today, I still made time to make a halloween cake.  sprinkles on the inside and on top!

I only had one piece!! I sent a few pieces to my grandparents (a thank you for helping me with my costume!) and I didn’t go back for seconds. I was actually really proud of myself. Bad news is I didn’t get to the gym today, or out for a run. 😦

Question for you:

Do you ever beat yourself up or feel bad if you don’t make it to the gyM?

What are you going to be for halloween?
