Halloween 'Round Here

Y'all know I get crazy for Halloween. So this year, we decided to have a little spooky sleepover for Walker and a couple of his friends. The boys favorite part - apple bobbing. They could have kept going for hours if it hadn't gotten dark. And then they brought in the bucket and bobbed in the shower.

And let's just say - how did I live without Pinterest? And I think the first couple of pins I ever pinned were Halloween - love all of the great ideas and I've already started pinning for Christmas!

So, here are a couple of shots from our Halloween festivities. No picture of Mike - he's not quite as into the holiday as Walker and I are - but I did get him to dress up in one of my UNC t-shirts - he went as a UNC fan (he's a die-hard Dookie).

Walker went trick-or-treating in our neighborhood and one of his best friend's neighborhoods - so he was pretty happy Halloween night. And here's how I handle the candy - and always have - we just dump it out and he goes at it. Then he basically is over it and it sits in the bag for months.

I'm always Wendy the witch - but this year, Walker demanded that I switch it up and try something new. So, meet Wendy the zombie mommie...


  1. Amazing decorations! And I love the zombie look too! I wonder if you made the Halloween wreath yourself? It's really great.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
