WIWW-31 days of Pinterest Finale!

Happy Halloween everyone!
I am so excited because halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I just love watching all the kiddos in their cute costumes. 
But I am also sad.
Today is the last day of the month, 
which means my 31 days of Pinterest is over!
But, I am ending it with another one of my favorite things:

Here is my inspiration photo from pinterest:

and here is my take:

shirt-loft via yard sale for $1
shoes- macy's

Scarf-yard sale $1
earrings- target clearance

This was seriously so comfy
sweater-khols $5
jeans-goodwill (loft)
flats-old navy

and lastly, some halloween fun!
I wore this to our halloween party, and it was a hit!

I was a flapper if you can't tell ;)
I got the dress at a yard sale for $8
It's Banana Republic and sooo pretty in person! It has amazing beading.
tights are brand new from Goodwill
shoes-yes, you guessed it, goodwill

and the feather clip came from party city for around $3
My accessories, which you can't really see, all came from yard sales.

Happy Halloween guys! and Stay safe!!!

I hope you guys enjoyed my series!

A Fabulous Halloween Pinterest Party

So I know for the past month, I've been sharing little snapshots of our house decorated for Halloween!
Every month, my mom throws a pinterest party with a different theme each time.
This month was, of course, Halloween!
Everyone was to come dressed up
and to bring a pinterest-inspired food/drink.
It was a fabulous evening!

Before the party, my family took a group photo!
It's a little blurry, 
but I love it.

Here is our dining room all decked out!
There were so many yummy foods!

Here is my sister-in-law showing off the amazing set up.
I love our little yard-sale owls hanging from the chandelier.

These windows are opposite of the big hutch in our dining room!
I love the owls in the window, too!

Of course our mantel had to be festive.
We went all out!

another view in the living room!
Quoting some Poe 

 And I'm sure you've seen This shot already!

A wreath above the couch

 The "kids" area!
Complete with pin the nose on the pumpkin and coloring!

A shot of the kitchen area.
If you look on the bottom right, you'll see are votes for the best costume!

The Front door!
Right is the dining room and left is the "library"

Here is the bookcase in the library.
I love the gothic feel!

and that is the basic house tour!
now, onto the actual party:

First I will show you the costumes

I was a flapper, but more on that for WIWW

my mom was 50 shades of grey

and my youngest brother was cousin eddie from Christmas vacation (BEST movie ever!)

My sister-in-law was a sailor

and my older brother was a morph santa. This was hilarious!

my beautiful mother

 Our wonderful guests!

deep in conversations!
Jess (beautiful lady on the left) was "Identity Theft" 
she basically had "Hello my name is ____" stickers all over her.
It was so clever!
She won the contest, by the way!

cute little alex! 
He won the Pin the nose contest!
(He forgot to get a costume)

and crazy Ian, a family friend was an old man.
He had a cane and everything!!

All in all, It was a wonderful party!
I'm so excited for our next one:
5th Annual Christmas Cookie Exchange.
It is going to be great!

I can't believe 31 days is almost over!

31 days of Pinterest: Day 27--Room Inspiration

We are moving (Finally!!!) into a new house next month and I am so excited to already start planning and coming up with new ideas for my room.
Of course, I turned to pinterest for some inspiration!

I love this room! The colors are simply amazing together.

I think I may spray paint my bed this color!

This space is so me! I'd have to add more girliness, though.

Such an amazing bathroom!
It reminds me of something you'd find in Paris!

How awesome is this closet! I love the idea of painting the door a pop of color!

and that's it for now,
I have more, but way to much to share :)

Pinned it and Tried it: Easy Dipped Marshmallows

When I saw this pin, I knew I wanted to try. 
I love marshmallows, caramel and chocolate.
Put them together, and BAM! you've got a party in your mouth. 
(Click on this picture for the recipe)

So, for our Halloween party on saturday, I decided to try them.
Mine obviously don't look nearly as pretty or cute. 
But they taste amazing!

I followed the original recipe, but added my own twists.
I've never been one to follow the rules.

So go ahead and try them out! Everyone will love them, so be prepared to make more!!
