Halloween Party- Costumes!

My favorite part of our Halloween Party was everyone's costumes!
I was SO impressed. And I got lots of great ideas for future Halloween costumes.
Scott and I dressed up as Elmo and Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.
I was nervous how it would turn out, but I love it!
Scott had too much fun in his can all night haha. (he's the exact opposite of grouchy)
And look at all of these amazing costumes!!
Be amazed.
Deer and Hunter                                                                                    Mario and Peach
            Mickey and Minne                                                             Kevin and Russell from "UP"
Pikachu and Ash                                                                           Mermaid and Sailor   
Whoopie Cushion, Bumble Bee, Ninja Turtle                                              Elephants and Sikh                      
Peanut Butter and Jelly                                                                         Sully, Mike and Boo
Wreck it Ralph and Vanellope                                                                   Daphne and Shaggy
Tinkerbell and Lost Boy                                                                 King Tut and Queen
                        Toilet and Plummer                                                                Pink and Red Power Rangers
Aren't they all so good!?

Halloween Party- Decor and Food

This year, some good friends and I threw a couples Halloween Party!
It was a blast!!
I have so many awesome pictures to share that I'm going to make this a little series. 

Part 1: Decor and Food
This is the one part of the party I didn't get quite enough pictures of!

We had a soup bar for dinner.
Let me just say, these were no ordinary soups! (I wanted to eat all of them)
The Chicken Noodle was probably the best soup I've ever tasted. Ever. 
 I had too much fun making the cupcakes and graveyard cups!

 Stay tuned for Part 2: Costumes!

Fall Craft Number 3!

This year I have had so much fun making fall crafts and decor! 
I started of with these pumpkins and then made the boo sign and lastly I made this simple fall banner. 
Banners are probably my favorite decoration ever created and I love that they are in right now. 
They are cute, simple and cheeeeap!
All you need is some fun printed paper, sting and tape! Oh, and scissors.
I decided to also buy some glittery stickers to embellish.
You can add so much to this basic idea- layers of triangles, ribbon trim, cut-outs, etc! 
Pinterest will give you lots of ideas, but this is how my simple fall banner turned out. 
I kinda love it.

I also took some left over paper and made my lantern into a pumpkin!
It's a fun little touch:)

Happy Halloween Week!

I'm trying to challenge myself everyday.
And even when I don't succeed, it doesn't mean I've failed.
Because, I'm trying.
That's got to count for something

A new Fall wreath for our door. It was needed!
 My glitzy new necklace makes me feel like getting fancy for no reason
My amazing mom turned 20. Seriously though, she looks exactly the same!
