Salted Caramel Apples with Only 3 Ingredients!

Salted Caramel Apples -

I am so obsessed with salted caramel! If it’s got salted caramel on it, I am all over it. Seriously. I even have a bottle of Salted Caramel vodka on our bar. Pro Tip: It’s delicious in hot cocoa and mochas. So I decided I might want to amp up one of my favorite fall treats, caramel apples, by adding a little bit of salt. I’ve actually never tried to make my own caramel apples before, but felt up to the challenge and I learned how easy they are! The best part? My recipe is super simple and only 3 ingredients!Continue Reading

Halloween Themed Chocolate Covered Strawberries!

Pumpkin and Ghost Strawberries -

In this house, we go through strawberries like we go through milk. Seriously! We eat so many strawberries! I love them in salads, or as a snack, and every now and then we have them dipped in chocolate as a fun and healthier option for dessert. My husband is NOT a sweets person (weird, right?!) but he can get down on some chocolate covered strawberries! I figured since Halloween is right around the corner, and people are probably starting to check out Pinterest for ideas on what to serve at their Halloween parties, I wanted to chime in and share my cute little Strawberry Ghosts and Pumpkins.Continue Reading

Blickenstaff’s Toy Store

I am being compensated by Blickenstaff’s as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network.


Whenever I think of Toy Stores, like real toy stores (you know the kind), I think of big places with loads of toys, mom and pop shop, not big corporate chain stores. It reminds me of Christmas movies, and being a kid, full of wonderment and excitement and pure joy. It’s the kind of place I want to take my kids to and watch their eyes get wide and let them go crazy. There aren’t a ton of places like that around anymore, which makes Blickenstaff’s Toy Store, that much more special.Continue Reading

And cute… in a “you’ve got blood drips on your nails” sort of way. It’s sort of creepy and macabre, but I like it and it’s Halloween. So I decided to search the internet (and by internet, I mean Pinterest) and find you the 13 of my favorite Halloween nails out there. Get creative, get excited and get your nail polish out and ready.Continue Reading
