Friday Feel Good...

I was set free this week. The geothermal install was completed last Friday afternoon and I was no longer trapped to the only room in the house without installers and/or construction. I have been cleaning up and trying to get the house decorated for Halloween. I know, not much time for the decorations to even be up at this point but when you have kids I feel it is important to decorate.


This is one of my favorite decorations. It lights up!
This is what started off my frustrations this week...HALLOWEEN PREPARATIONS! Get ready! There are a few and I may tend to ramble on a bit...

1. Keeping things in a "safe place"! Why do I even think that a year later my brain will retain the information to locate this so called "safe place"?! I am a pretty organized girl but I tell you what...when it comes to our basement storage area, no matter how hard I try to keep the different holiday items grouped together somehow they disappear. I have a group of favorite items that are more on the funky side of Halloween decorations that my MIL kick started with some crazy cool Halloween candle stick holders. Unfortunately, this entire box is missing! So much for my "safe places"! So much for "obvious" places. I CAN'T FIND THIS BOX ANYWHERE!!!

2. Target - having aisle after aisle of snack size candy! First of all, I am a sucker for candy. Secondly, snack size is no good for me. One snack size is just a tease, two snack size is probably just right but let's face it...it is not and three snack size should be where I cut myself off but I usually don't. So, after four snack size I am regretting even opening the first snack size. I know what you are all are thinking, "Isn't the candy for the trick-or-treaters anyway?!" Well, in this house...NO, it is for me and the leftovers are for the trick-or-treaters.


Great variety, right?! You're coming to my house
to trick-or-treat now, aren't you?!
 3. Witches hanging in the foyer! I know, this one is ALL MY FAULT and it is a simple fix but I'm just too lazy to do anything about it. I got the great idea that it would be spooky if I hung a witch from the light in our foyer. That way when we open the door to trick-or-treaters or guests throughout the season it kind of looks like it is flying in our house. The only problem with this, I keep coming around the corner or down the steps in the evening/late night and it freaks me out! I keep scaring myself! Why don't I just take it down you ask? Ummm...remember...I'm too lazy.

I'm going to get you, my pretty!
 4. Everything being the flavor of pumpkin! Pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin whoopie pies, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin risotto and pumpkin chai latte. This means A WHOLE LOT OF TIME DEDICATED TO EATING & DRINKING while it is in season and EVEN MORE CALORIES ON TOP OF THOSE DARN SNACK SIZE CANDIES!!!

Now, that I am hungry for all things pumpkin and some snack size yummies...it is time for you to dump what has been bothering you this week in my comments sections. Let it out! You will feel better for it and you will be able to head out into your weekend with a smile!

Thanks again for all of the comments! If you haven't signed up to be a follower yet, please do. It only takes a quick click on the right side bar where it says "Followers" and doesn't cost a penny. There's nothing like a freebie! :-)

HAPPY WEEKEND!!!

I'm linking up with Jennifer at Momma Made It Look Easy because well, it is Friday and she is sharing her AWESOME!!! Thanks again for featuring me last week!!!

Reese's pb cups and pieces are my FAVORITE! I can totally relate to putting things in safe and obvious places & not being able to find them. My garage door opener has been missing for 3 weeks! I put important papers in special drawers...but there are too many of them and I can never find what I need when I need it.

Kristen,
We don't celebrate Halloween, but i used to always by at least one bag of the willie wonka assorted candies. Not this year though..I have totally avoided the candy isle this year. There are just too many kinds of sweets that appeal to me. :) LoL I will say that I do allow myself a pumpkin treat this time of year. I get pumpkin custard with cheescake bits in it..it's so delicous! :) Have a great Friday my friend, and thank you for making me smile with your great post!

I was just laughing with my husband about how the snack size Whoppers candy is a tease. After the first bag you can't stop. Well, I can't.

I LOVE the pumpkin everything, YUMMY!! I have been eating, drinking all pumpkin flavored stuff. I stopped dead in my tracks in Walmart when I walked past the holiday cooking section and saw canned pumpkin. I remembered I haven't made my pumpkin spice muffins. I can't wait!!

Have a great weekend. Thanks for your comment on my post. :)

I always put things away in "safe Place" and then can never find them! Soooooo frustrating. And my family gets so upset with me.

Desperately trying to avoid the candy... not being very successful.

Oh, I do the same thing--put something in a "safe" place then lose it! And you Halloween candy is calling to me. I can't stop myself from downing anything chocolate.

I like your witch.
