Halloween Favourites

I don't really do much for Halloween now that I'm older and don't have any kids. I didn't even get around to carving my pumpkin I was so excited to get. I feel like last Halloween came and went and I barely even noticed it, I wanted to make this Halloween a little bit better. Tonight will be filled with delicious snacks and all the Halloween movies I can possibly watch. So in honour of Halloween I wanted to share some of my Halloween favourites with you.

Favourite Scary Movies: 
1. Friday The 13th
2. The Exorcist and The Exorcism of Emile Rose - I believe in stuff like this so I love these kinds of    movies but the do freak me out.
3. Poltergeist - I have a friend named Carol-Anne and we always use to taunt her with this movie           "Come to the other side of the mirror Carol-Anne"
4. Scream - I love Matthew Lillard and my favourite quote from this move is "My mom and dad are going to be so mad at me" the best ha
5. Halloween - Can't forget all the Halloween movies
6. The Craft - I don't know about you but when this movie came out it was one of my favourites, I know I'm a giant loser but so be it. I haven't seen this movie in years and I really want to add it to my movies to watch tonight.

Favourite Family Friendly Movies:
1. Beetlejuice - This my be one of my all time favourite movies
2. The Monster Squad
3. Hocus Pocus
4. Casper 
5. Monster house
6. Ernest Scared Stupid - I love all Ernest movies

Favourite Halloween Songs:
1. Monster Mash
2. Thriller
3. Time Warp

Favourite Halloween Candy:
1. When I was a kid my favourite treats to get were chocolate bars. My absolute favourite being Oh Henry bars.

What are some of your Halloween favourites? How are you celebrating Halloween?
Happy Halloween!

Guest Post

One of my October sponsosr Deidre from Love. The Skinnys will be taking over Mavy May today.
Happy Tuesday!

Hey! I am Deidre and my husband and I blog over at Love, The Skinnys. Let me just say. I am happy to be here! Seriously pumped! And with that being said. I know what you are thinking.. something like this perhaps...

"Guest post?... I'm out of here...."

Listen, I have had the same thoughts. And now I have exactly... 7 seconds to impress you. To convince you to click through on that little baby hyperlink to my blog. Trust me. You will want to keep reading.

Top 10 Reasons to Click HERE

1. I have no filter. And that means there are always things that are borderline inappropriate and potentially awkward for everyone to read. And who doesn't love a good awkward moment?
2. The blog is a nice balance between a woman that can wear a crown and a woman that can make herself look like she just got in a bar fight.

 3. Every Tuesday you get to hear a little from my husband. He loves to blog and he loves comments.
4. No story is kept a secret. Wanna know about my past dating life? It's there. Wanna know about my wedding? It's there. Wanna know about what I ate for dinner last night? It's there. Wanna know about the time I hit a bird with my car? It's there... that was a sad day.
5. Every Friday you have a fashion post to look forward to. Cheap fashion that is. We are talking Target, thrift stores, Kmart, Desert Industries. Because we all know I can't pay $100 for a shirt. And even if I could,  I would rather spend $100 on 4 shirts... because that is actually what I tend to do. I have a Target shopping problem.

Ooops... Wrong photo. Let's try fashion again....

6. Easy recipes... cooking is hard!
7. I give good hugs. What does that have to do with blogging? I don't know. But I do love hugging!
8. Weekend music and sweet videos.

9. Currently... there is lots of wedding stuff. Weddings make people happy. So I am spreading it out over time. You can see everything I did. And by did. I mean really did. Do it yourself wedding? Check!
10. Last of all... I am hilarious. If you don't believe me ask my parents.

So hopefully those ten reasons were enough to get a click through and a little love. Otherwise. Nice knowing ya! See you in heaven!

My recent obsession is combat boots. I do not have any yet but they will be my next purchase, I just love them. I have also recently discovered Polyvore. I know what you're thinking, how can that possibly be, but it's true. I alway wondered how everyone got all those items together like that and now I finally know.

Chocolate Covered Oreos

I made these a little while ago for a bake sale Steve's class was having. They are so simple to make and they're really good. All you need is:
   - Bag of Oreos
   - Milk chocolate
   - sprinkles  

Melt chocolate in pot or warmer (I did mine in the microwave but I wouldn't recommend it) Once chocolate is melted dip the Oreo in, making sure you've covered the whole cookie. Place the now covered Oreo on wax paper, use your fingers to sprinkle on as much or as little of the sprinkles as you like. Repeat until you have your desired amount of cookies. Let cookies set for 20-30 minutes or place in fridge to set faster.

Voila! There you have it. So simple and so good!

I'm giving away a pair of leopard print button earrings over at Penniless Socialite head over there to enter and to check out Tara's blog :)
How was your weekend?
Happy Monday!

High Five For Friday

1. Took my cousin to Rawlicious for her birthday lunch, SO good!
2. My niece and I with her new sunglasses like her aunties
3. Renewed my passport yesterday. I'm traveling in January and my passport expires in March BUT I can't use it with in 6 months of the expiry date so then technically it expires in October. Why isn't the expiry date the actually expiry date!? Is it the same for other counties also?
4. My Niece again, she loves having her picture taken.
5. My pumpkin :) I can't wait to carve this thing. I grabbed a couple free carving stencils and now to decide which to go with.

Loving lately

In this post last week I told you guys that I was thinnking about going vegan. Well I have decided to give it a go. It's been just over a week now and I've doing pretty good. It is hard though, mostly because I can't just grab anything and eat it when I'm hungry. That being said it is also a plus because it makes you think about what you're going to eat and not just grab random crap to snack on, which brings me to what I am loving lately - Vegan Recipes.

Oh how Pinteresting - Words

Do you ever have those days you just want to crawl in your bed, hide under the covers and cry? The last almost week has been like this for me, bad day after bad day after bad day. Sometimes it's really hard to stay positive when it seems like nothing's going right. I'm not usually one of those people who sits around and feels sorry for myself when things aren't going the way I want. I do believe everything is what you make it and there no point in making yourself sad and depressed. I usually need to have a good cry then move on. Somethings not going right change it. In this cause I think I just need to re group and change my out look. I always find these little sayings help to refocus and motivate me.
