A Frightening Friday Wrap

Whether you call this mischief night, devil’s eve or simply the night before Halloween, we can all agree it has arrived! Our crew will spend it carving up jack-o-lanterns while drinking cups of cider and listening to The Ultimate Halloween playlist on Spotify. Can’t wait!!

It’s been a busy week leading up to this point, but here are a few bright spots along the way:

{ONE} Decorations are set!

I’ve had the pumpkin wreath and orange lights up for a few weeks, but the floating witches’ hats were added yesterday. Can you see them on either side of the door? I used fishing line to hang them from the ceiling. They add the perfect amount of spook-factor when the wind blows.

Clara is ready to save the world as Supergirl. She knew exactly what she wanted to be as soon as the topic came up in September. We found a Superman tee at Walmart and used this pic as inspiration for the rest of the outfit. I’ll post pictures of her all dolled up tomorrow on Instagram.

Avery, on the other hand, has been teetering back-and-forth on ideas. She contemplated being a wizard until she saw the pointy hat that went with it. #notcool So, I finally gave her a deadline (welcome to my world, sister) and she quickly agreed to be an indian princess. Perfect! I took a white tee and embellished it with leather fringe and ribbon.

Avery carefully chose the ribbon design and did a wonderful job. She’s such an artist in the making. The fabric glue is still doing its magic or else I’d have her model it for you. I’ll share that picture along with Clara’s tomorrow.

(Time will only tell if Evan decides to dress up with his sisters this year. I’m learning that twelve can be a very sensitive age.)

{THREE} The pumpkin cheese ball is back!

This silly cheese ball was THE biggest hit last Halloween, so momma’s bringin’ it back. It’s easy, delicious and pretty much the only time I let my kids eat Doritos, which is the orange coating on the outside of the ball. It’s worth every bite, though. Seriously. So good. Oh, and the chips are blue tortilla.

{FOUR} Desk makeover in progress!

This is a little sneak peek of my desk makeover. I’ve been gathering (and making) a few things to jazz up my space, and these gold paper clips with polka-dot ribbon are one of my favorites so far. More to come next week!!


{FIVE} It’s time for a Happy Halloween!
