Friday Fancies (Halloween Edition)

While living in LA I did the makeup of the werewolf, Frankenstein, and mummy for a friends video. Haha it was a good time.

Such a great idea and almost too cute to eat, almost.
My mom use to make orange bread for the month of October and then cut my PB&J's into the shape of jack-o-lanterns for me! It was kind of the best.

Posts I'm Loving : Happy late anniversary to Jennifer and Brady! They have so many adorable photos together! // Amber's got a killer October playlist up on her blog. I've been rocking to it all day long // Super in love with Bianca's free printable envelope and card // Charlie Hunnam oh be still my heart // First a wizard and now this, Daniel Radcliffe will forever be cooler than I also this // I absolutely adore Jessica Williams One time I was taking my cats to their vet appointment and was visibly stressed and struggling to hold both their carriers-- they were yowling the yowls of their people-- when some dude walks by and says 'Hello'. I said 'hi' back, but apparently not loud enough or to his liking because a second later he shouts at me 'You could have said hi, asshole' Thanks guy.  

Get In My Closet Please : I would rock this jacket on the back of a motorcycle  // I could wear denim for dayz! //Love this giants blanket shawl it's called a poncho but I'm pretty sure that's not what that actually is haha // One day I will own shoes like this // Sweeter coat you look so comfy // Boyfriend jeans look so comfy //This necklace! The kid in me is so happy // This shirt looks like a cartoon drawing // Pug gloves, so cute! // All the floppy hats please // This pair sunglasses are adorable

Tomorrow is Halloween and once 4 o'clock or so hits (work willing) I'm popping a huge bowl of popcorn and plopping my butt on the couch and watching my favorite Halloween movies and tv episodes. Ahh I am so excited, watching movies with Will and the cats are pretty much my ideal night. Pathetic? Oh I think not, haha. What are you guys doing for Halloween? If you are dressing up I love to see you costumes!

5 Favorite Halloween Hits

Being that we live up on a mountain in the middle of nowhere we don't have any friends near by, so Halloween parties and trick or treaters are kind of off the list. So rather than getting all dressed up and hanging out with people or handing out candy I make Will we get comfy on the couch and enjoy way too many hours of my favorite Halloween movies/specials while eating candy! With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to share what we watch with you all just incase you all are planning a night in on Halloween as well. 
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
I have always been obsessed with both the movie and the show. I mean c'mon who the heck didn't wish they were a witch with a taking cat?! I remember my younger self watching this and being absolutely mesmerized wishing I could be as cool as Sabrina in high school. Or at the very least be as fashionable, hehe. Also, can we just take a moment to recognize a super young and a little goofy looking Ryan Reynolds! Talk about super swoon worthy for this 11-12 year old, haha. 
Hocus Pocus
Oh my word everything about this movie is wonderful, Bette Milder, Max (what a early 90's dream boat), magic, the costumes, the "I Put A Spell On You" sequence, humor that went way over my head as a kid, and a talking cat! This is one of those movies I have to watch more than just on Halloween because once a year is never enough.

The Witches
This movie scared the bejeezus out of me as a kid, and truth be told it still totally does, but I absolutely love it. As a kid I loved everything terrifying even if I was scared to go to bed without being completely covered by my blankets and every stuffed animal I had. They totally had super powers to keep me safe from all the things that go bump in the night, haha. 
Garfield's Halloween Adventure
Ok, so are you guys starting to notice a trend of talking cats yet? Haha. What can I say I was seriously obsessed with cats even at a young age. My brother use to love Garfield and pretty much had Garfield everything (including a Garfield phone, which I still have), so the cartoon was a big hit in our household, and this VHS tape was a even bigger hit every Halloween after trick or treating.
The Simpsons Treehouse or Horrors
While growing up these episodes were a real treat because some years we would miss it and if you missed it you missed it. Kids these days with the internet and DVRs have no idea how lucky they are, haha. I remember a couple years putting trick or treating on hold just long enough to watch the episode before heading out again. 

There you have it, our Halloween day/evening binge watching extravaganza! What are some of your favorite things to watch on All Hollows Eve?

4 Ways To Dress Up S'mores

4 Ways To Dress Up S'mores -
Two years ago we built a fire pit that we use and enjoy every fall, and of course we all know what goes hand in hand with a late afternoon fire: s'mores! Anytime friends visit I always make sure to have all the ingredients for a good s'more on hand. Recently though, I've started to experiment with the normal recipe (gram crackers, chocolates, and marshmallows), so I thought it would be fun to share my new favorite combos so far. 
4 Ways To Dress Up S'mores -
1. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - I've always been a fan of the chocolate peanut butter combo, so it was a no brainer to replace the regular chocolate bar with a cup and take it to the next level. I am a firm believer that you can add peanut butter to just about anything and make it even more tasty: Oreos, waffles, vanilla wafflers just to name a few. 

2. Kit Kat - Kit Kats are probably my favorite candy. Give me a frozen bar and I am one happy camper. I actually bought a whole bunch of them for s'mores at our wedding and totally didn't get one before they ran out, so I have feeling everyone else really loved them too, haha. I'm pretty sure you can use any chocolate candy and it will turn out pretty darn tasty. 

3. Banana - Have you ever tired the magic that is a cooked banana?! You get this amazing rich, sweet, extra strength banana taste. Pair it up with chocolate, gram crackers, and a marshmallow and you are in for a treat.

4. Nutella - Replacing the chocolate with a smear of this delightful hazelnut spread and you'll be set. If you're feeling adventurous, add a banana and some peanut putter with it as well. Toast with Nutella, peanut butter, and banana is one of my favorite treats, so imagine how amazing that would taste as a s'more! 
4 Ways To Dress Up S'mores -
Of course I had to make a little gif of the different s'mores hehe. What are some of the ways you love to dress up your s'mores? I'm always looking for new delicious ways to make my s'mores even tastier.
