Friday Inspiration

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?

Product Feature: 8-Piece Seafood Set

Today I thought I would shed a little more light on our 8-Piece metal Seafood Set. As you can see the set includes 6 (7 inch) picks and 2 (6 inch) crackers. This set is perfect for enjoying lobster, crab, crayfish, and other forms of shellfish. The crackers are used to crack open the hard outer shell and the picks are used to remove slices of meat from the small nooks and crannies. Each pick has a fork end and a scoop end to help remove the small slices of meat. 

Includes: 6 picks 7", and 2 crackers 6" 
Purchase: Each 8-piece set is sold individually

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.

Product Feature: Clear Plastic Sauce Cups with Lids

Not only do we have stainless steel sauce cups but we do have a disposable plastic version with lids. Sauce cups are great for serving sides, holding ingredients for cooking, or to contain food on the go. Plus I think the best part is the cups are made of "green" and environmentally-friendly Ingeo biopolymer, a PLA resin derived entirely from plants!

Holds: 2oz
Purchase: Packs of 25 or 100

Sometimes life gets hard and I enjoy the challenge of it, and sometimes it gets hard and I just want to quit. It's times like the later I need to be reminded that some of those good things don't come easy but are worth the struggle.
