Friday Inspiration

I'm someone who loves to entertain. It doesn't matter what the occasion may be I enjoy playing the hostess and making everyone feel at home. I thought this image was cute and a good reminder not to worry about the size of your house but to be thankful for the fellowship of family and friends. May you always have more friends and family than space to fit them all in your home. Have a good weekend.

I had a rude awakening this morning with the snow falling softly outside my window. We're in the Holiday Season and it snuck up on me again this year. To gear myself up for Thanksgiving I thought on Fridays I would share what I'm thankful for. Today I'm thankful for my husband and my kids. Although my kids don't live with me anymore, I am thankful to get to see them on a regular basis since all three of my girls live close by.

One of my all time favorite quotes. When I got over the fear of asking (the worst they could say is no) it lead to things I may have never otherwise got the opportunity to be apart of.

A Twist On The Traditional Trick-or-treat Favor Bags

Last time I did a Halloween trick-or-treat favor bag was back in 2012. I used newspapers to create the bag and decorated them with Halloween stamps. This DIY is maybe even simpler with most (if not all) of the supplies already in your home. 

Things you need: Plastic Easter eggs in shades of orange for the "pumpkins", permanent markers, and lots and lots of candy!

Start by drawing different "jack-o-lantern" faces on the front sides of the plastic eggs (hinges to the back) with permanent markers. If you're having trouble coming up with different faces try searching jack-o-lanterns online. Next let them sit to dry for a few minuets so that the faces don't smear. 

And last but certainly not least stuff the eggs full with your favorite candies to give to your kids, grandkids, or to toss into trick-or-treaters bags for Halloween. So easy, right?

Root Beer Float Party

Last Friday my grandkids had the day off from school so I decided to invite them over for a Root Beer Float Party! I had promised them root beer floats this summer (when they worked as interns) but it was something we never got around to doing. Now that things have started to settle back into routines now seemed like the perfect time to enjoy a yummy treat with a few of my favorite kids. 

The Set Up
- I always keep fun paper straws around (these ones had black mustaches on them). 
- I picked up these large glass mugs recently at the Dollar Tree and placed them in the freezer about an hour or so before we needed them. 
- Our #100 white paper soda hats for fun retro feel. 
- And last but not least Root Beer and vanilla ice cream.
