we had a little pumpkin party over here this past weekend. i went a little over board in the pumpkin purchasing department.i just couldn’t help myself, they were all staring me down at the store. and all those goodies you saw from the last post, i made for this party. (check them out here ) i also bought carving stencils, tools, and pumpkin gut scrappers, along with paint and brushes. i love getting family and friends together, and decorating pumpkins just made it feel a little more like the holidays!!

festive foods…..

16 Oct

holiday’s mean holiday parties and with that comes food, the question is,

what food???

well i’ve got a couple halloween festive foods that are super easy and super yummy!!!

i hope this takes that stress out of your holiday party planning.

what fun festive foods do you like to make?!

“pepperoni pizza snake”

“white chocolate pretzel bones”


things you will need for the pizza snake

  1. a sheet pan lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray
  2. pizza dough (any kind, i used rosemary focaccia for more flavor)
  3. a little flour to roll out the dough
  4. rolling pin
  5. shredded mozzarella cheese
  6. any  pizza topping you like (i kept it classic with pepperoni for the allusion of blood and bones)
  7. an egg
  8. green food coloring
  9. 2 green olives for eyes
  10. 1 red pepper for the tongue
  11. 2 toothpicks

– begin by pre heating your oven to 350 degrees

– flour the surface of your counter and roll out the dough to a rectangular shape

– add your topping to the center portion making the first and last layer cheese

– roll the pizza into a log

– form into an “s” on your greased sheet pan, seam side down

– brush the top of the roll with the beaten egg and food coloring

– bake for 30-35 min. or until golden

-place toothpicks where the eyes would go and then place olives on the toothpicks

– cut the pepper into a tongue shape and place in the mouth

– then serve!!!!

easy as that!!!


now for the white chocolate pretzel bones

  1. pretzel rods
  2. mini marshmallows
  3. white chocolate to melt
  4. wax paper
  5. a fork

– put a mini marshmallow on each end of the pretzel rod

– dip in melted white chocolate (i melt my chocolate in the microwave at 30 sec 3x)

– use the fork to fish the bone out

– place on wax paper

–  refrigerate for 15-20 min or until chocolate is hard

– place in a bowl and serve

happy party planning everyone!!!!!

halloween’s past….

i’ve been having some difficulty deciding on a costume for the husby and i this year.

i love dressing up… the husby… not so much.

but he’s a good sport, or i’m just torturing him every year and he doesn’t say anything.

either way, we need some costumes.

any suggestions????!!!!

please and thank you :)


here’s a few pictures through the years to get your halloween juices flowing!

in the anniversary clouds…..

11 Oct

it’s crazy how quickly a year goes by. i can remember our wedding day like it was yesterday,

how i felt, how beautiful everything was and this crazy calm feeling that came over me,

just confirming how right everything was.

i hope i never forget all the little details from that impossibly perfect day.

so here we are one year later, and what better way to celebrate then with two days all to our selves. we spent our first night together at the wicked show ( which by the way, if you’ve never seen it…. a-mazing!) and then  headed to chinatown for a little late night dinner, slurping pho. the second day we found our selves snuggling in bed longer then usual and decided to have a lazy day. so we skipped breakfast and went to an early lunch of pizza, then slept some more and then went for a romantic dinner at one of our favorite steakhouses. we ended our night at home over a bottle of wine and read the letters that we wrote to each other one year earlier on our wedding day. i couldn’t have asked for a better one year anniversary and can’t wait to celebrate the many more to come.

the first of many years to come……

8 Oct

one year ago today, i married the man i had always dreamed of, the love of my life and my best friend.

he shows me everyday what it means to love someone, and i feel like the luckiest girl in the world that he picked me.

i can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

happy one year anniversary husby

i love you more than you will ever know.
