    Musings: More Than Just the BOOs

    But BOOs is also pretty awesome too! The distraction of international travel didn’t really leave much mental space for Halloween thoughts. I had less than two days + jetlag to get my act together and get into the ghouly spirit. I anticipated not actually caring since the last four Halloweens were dedicated to someone else(s), but I actually felt like I should and kinda wanted to too. Work is ALL about Halloween. It seems to have stemmed from a previous CEO, but don’t quote me on that. People take it seriously around here. Emails more than a month prior go out about the decor and theme. And you thought I was…

    Musings: Some-Bunny Special

    Let’s get crafty! But in the least amount of time and money type of craft…if you get my drift. I love to craft, but my schedule doesn’t permit extreme crafting. So I tend to craft on the fly. Maybe with a little inspo from a pin here or there, but mostly I just make them up as I go. Last year, I shared Musings: Boycott Easter Candy. Sounds kind of negative, but really it was just a way for me to avoid giving lovebugs more candy when they get tons of eggs (dare I say close to 75/each) full of candy and some money. It was a fun way to give…

    Musings: Boycott Easter Candy

    Okay, I’m not Bummer Bunny or anything… …but I feel like every year all the kids in our families and L receive tons of candy for Easter. To change it up this year, I decided to gift something else. I’m sure I’m not the first person to do this, so I’m NOT claiming rights to my crafty idea, but I thought I’d share what I am giving to the Lovebugs this year. I decided that books were a great gift for the kidlets. Yes, they’d love candy way more than that. I want something better than five seconds of gratification — AND I know that others will gift candy, so…

    We've Been BOO'ed

    And it’s the best feeling, ever! Yet, some how I forget about it every single year…until it happens to me! The last handful of Halloween’s B & M have always left me a fun little surprise. But this year, we had a different little ghostly ghoul surprise us! Never been BOO’ed before? Sorry! But here it is, super simple and such a sweet gestures. Make a goody bag of any sorts – big, small, candy, themed, whatever you want or can afford. Add a note, which you can Google or use the one we were left this year. Drive to your family or friend’s house, set the package down on…

    5 Things Friday – Friday Five(teen)

    It’s Friday…already! Thanks, Clare! I don’t get to say that often, but this week flew by fast! I’m okay with that, that just means the weekend seemed to get here faster than normal! 5 Things I Found Extremely Funny on the Internet: 1. Who doesn’t love a good PUN? If these don’t cheer you up, then I’m afraid you are just determined to be in a bad mood. Some are really wonky, but most are hilarious! 2. What are you? I have gotten this question way more times than I’d like to tell – #4, #11 (really bugs me), #15 (just cause I love food), and #19 (for real)! 3.…
