Friday’s Favs

I’ve been slacking on the favs for the past few weeks. Not because I forgot about you guys, that would just be crazy – but because my brain wasn’t happy enough to think of things that were great from my week. It’s been a rough couple of weeks over here with struggling with work and the job search but hopefully things are starting to look up. I mean, they must be because I have some great favorites to share, along with a quote that stuck with me. Happy Friday friends, hope you all have a lovely weekend!

All Hallow’s Eve

Halloween is here my friends, and it literally snuck up on me, and was like “BOO!!” But really though, just a second ago it was the first day of summer and now all of a sudden it’s the end of October. Time flies, and now it’s time for pumpkins and CANDY! I’m so lame I didn’t even have time to carve a pumpkin. But I would have done this – for SURE, because I can’t stop, and I won’t stop…

My costume creative juices are just as lame as my pumpkin carving juices. My thinking was that I couldn’t beat last year’s (toddlers in tiaras and Colonel Sanders) costume, so I didn’t even try.

While my pumpkin and costume may be lacking in creativity but I did scrape together some tastey trick or treats! I’ve seen multiple versions of these – some pumpkins, some witch hats, some ghosts, heck you can mould rice krispies into anything – so I thought it would be cute to make a Frankie and Mummy version.

Well, to be honest – the mummy versions came about because I forgot to put in the green food coloring and then was like OH SHIZ what am I going to do with all of these. But they turned out to be cute.

These spooky snacks were really easy to make, I just followed the krispie treat recipe on the box and added food coloring (second time’s a charm), eyeballs, and then either added more marshmallow for the mummies or dipped the tops in chocolate for Frankie. And if I were dressed as a skeleton I would have said “BONE Appetite!” (ba dump dump tsss). Sorry, Halloween makes me cheesey and nostalgic, no more candy for me…

What are you all being for Halloween this year? Some good ones I’ve seen today were a 6’4” tooth fairy man, a guy in a suit with an “I’m Sorry” poster attached (a formal apology), a cat lady, and a Teletubby. Hope your costumes and pumpkins and treats are super spooky! Happy Halloween friends!!!
