Happy Halloween!

The last couple of days have been a whirlwind of parades, parties, trick-or-treating and add to that 3 soccer games today! The house is now quiet, the kids are all sugared up and I am done for the day. But before I shut down the computer for the night, I wanted to share these really cute and really quick and easy Halloween snacks that I made for a party.
I got the recipes for the Monster Fingers and HERE and HERE from the Family Fun website.

And the spiders are just chocolate munchkins with chow mein noodles for legs and a little icing for the eyes.

Hope you had a great Halloween!

White Wednesday...Shades of White

I've been so inspired by all of the neutral decorating I've been seeing lately. And I'm finding that I'm so drawn to the calm, serene feeling of Shades of White that I've decided to redecorate my home. We have lots of color in our home now but I'm feeling like it's just adding to the clutter. So, my goal is to Simplify and choose lots of neutral shades and lots of texture so it doesn't get boring. I will be sharing our progress right here on my blog. But don't hold your breath, we're a little slow in the project I've learned to be patient.

I just put together a few photos of some favorite white pieces in my boutique and I'm participating in White Wednesday over at Faded Charm.
Make sure you stop by for more White Inspiration!

Doors of Welcome Party

I'm a little behind with my fall decorating, so here are a couple of pics (from last year) of my front door. I really just like harvest decorating but with 4 kids at home I was receiving some complaints about not enough "scary" decorations. So, we added the huge spider with webs and a little rat under the doorbell. I'm participating in the Doors of Welcome party at Some Days are Diamonds. Make sure you click on the graphic below to visit more Doors!

Server Problems

Edited 10/14/09 ~ My website is back up! Please let me know if you find any problems navigating my site. I've had to fix a few things to get it back to normal.
Aaaah computers.......

Just wanted to let you know that my web host is having server problems and my site has been down for 4 days now. I figured I should let you know that I'm still in business and hopefully it will be back up soon! Very frustrating on my end since there is nothing I can do about it but sit, wait and hope that my site is not effected in any way.

Kale Chips - So Addicting!

I saw this Kale chip recipe in a health magazine the other day and had to try it. Can I tell you - unbelievably good! My kids loved them and wished there were more. They are better than potato chips - I know you think I'm crazy, but you have to try these! I mean I could definitely eat a bowl of these while watching a movie.
Here is a little video I just found of someone making them. Let me know what you think - AFTER you've tasted them.

Oh, if you're going to play the video, just make sure you pause the music on my playlist (right sidebar).

And check out her website for more great healthy recipes!
