Gimme Brain Cupcakes!

Have I mentioned before that Halloween is my favorite holiday? Well it is! I haven't missed a year of trick-or-treating in my whole 30 something years that I have been alive! These little goodies are my brain cupcakes. I think they could have come out better, but hey! It was my first try. I mixed green and pink food coloring to get the brain color, and I think it worked out well. The center is filled with strawberries. I was going to use cherry filling but my wife likes strawberries better, so I switched it up for her! If you notice that there are some cupcakes missing from the stand...that's because we have already been eating them! 

So this year we are going with a semi Ghostbuster's theme. My daughter is the Ghostbuster and we are all going to be ghosts...don't worry there will be pictures! We're also going to carve our pumpkins tomorrow, I do this so they last a little longer.

 I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!

Outfit Diary

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

This is my favorite dress right now! I didn't post a little "Outfit Details" section this time around because I don't feel like there are enough items in this post to feature. I really just want to talk about this super comfy dress and our new place. This dress is by Exhilaration, which you can find at Target. I found it at a thrift store for $6...ha! My imitation Tom's were bought at a dollar store. There you have it! This dress has pockets and a stretchy waist. Everything a mom like me needs!

 As you can see my surroundings have changed and this is my new spot for outfit posts. I love our little deck and I can't wait to add cute furniture to it! Someone already left this little stand with plants on it! I love my plants, I couldn't imagine leaving them. In fact I have a plant that has moved with me 4 times! Our new place is really coming along. I've got pictures up, bookshelves filled and the kitchen almost done. It's really feeling like home. I love it :)

On a another note, my Sponsor section will be changing soon. I know I have been a little neglectful, but I will be fixing it. I decided that all my Sponsor spots are going to be free swapping spots. So If you want to do a free spot just send an email my way! ( justicealohi at yahoo dot com ) I have to spell it all out because of the spam bots!

Reality Check

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

We moved! It's pretty funny that my last post was about us looking for a new place, but literally that same week we made the decision. We moved into a cute little townhouse, which is only 3 miles from in-laws, so we didn't go far. I'm glad because the whole purpose of moving to New Jersey was to be closer to family.

Anyway, we have a cute 3 story townhouse! The 3 rd floor is a private loft, which we gave to our son. We also have a cute deck out back. I put up all the Halloween decorations, except for the spider web lights, but those are next! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I can't wait to go trick or treating. Plus our neighbor looks pretty festive so I'm hoping we will get some cute monsters and princesses looking for candy! 

All the fur babies are settling in. Cupcake, as you can see, is very at home. She has been exploring every space, and hoping in and out of cardboard boxes. One thing that scares me is her obsession with tape! She keeps trying to eat the tape off the boxes and I'm so scared she's going to choke. I have been going around to all the boxes and ripping the tape off.

Petunia on the other hand has been a little nervous. A lot of our neighbors have dogs, so I think that is why. She has pretty much smelled every inch of grass outside, along with marking her territory, but she is very prissy about going number 2. She will only go in the woods, which I can understand, I wouldn't want anyone to watch me either.

Anywhooo....We are so excited about unpacking everything! I can't believe all my goodies have been in storage for a year! It's so nice to see all my stuff!
