Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had my Boo Bash on Friday night. I keep thinking we are already in November and Halloween was over after that event, but we still have 3 more days of October!
Here are some highlights from my event!
We turned our Conference Room into a Haunted House! I wish had more pictures! It turned out so great!
All the kids got trick or treat bags for our Treasure Hunt!
Cinderella was there to paint faces and play with the kids!
But my favorite part was Captain Jack Sparrow! If you didn't know any better you would think Johnny Depp lives in the neighborhood! He was amazing! Not only does he look just like him, he stayed in character the entire time.
One more event down, and just one more big one this year! I'm ready to start planning my 2013 events and making them bigger and better!

Happy Wednesday! I hate that I haven't been able to blog much lately but this is a very busy time for me at work. With the approaching holidays, this brings some of our biggest events. I am pretty excited for my Boo Bash event this weekend! Captain Jack Sparrow (this has to be the best impersonator I've ever seen! This is not a pic of Johnny Depp!) will be attending and helping the kids do a Treasure Hunt. I got a bunch of glow in the dark items, spider rings, and lots of little Halloween toys to hide around our neighborhood playground.
I'm also having a Haunted House built inside our Clubhouse Boardroom. I cant wait to see how it turns out! I'll be sure to post pictures of the event!
To me, Halloween just gets me one step closer to the holidays I care most about, Thanksgiving and Christmas! With my wedding being right after Thanksgiving last year, I didn't get to decorate as much as I wanted for Christmas. So Hubby, be ready, this year I will be out of control making up for last year! Don't judge me, but I deem it acceptable in my house to break out the Christmas decorations as soon as Halloween is over. That's right, November 1 is my date I can break out INSIDE decorations only. It's so much work to put everything out and I want to enjoy it for more than a few weeks!
This year we are hosting Thanksgiving for my family at our house. My Wedding Cake Designer, Cake Envy, is making us our cake topper to enjoy for our first anniversary, so I thought I'd also order some desserts for Thanksgiving. I'm thinking of ordering this cupcake centerpiece in Pumpkin with Cream Cheese Icing!
I found this Corn Casserole dish on Pinterest. I want to try and test it out to see if it's Thanksgiving worthy. It sure looks like it! Recipe
I'm also going to make Cornbread Dressing and I think I'll go ahead and make it in the next couple of weeks and freeze it! Recipe
And since I'll already be decorated for Christmas, no need to look at any Thanksgiving decorations. Lets just jump right in to the good stuff!
And I'll leave you with a song that is sure to get you in the Christmas Spirit!

This morning on Good Morning America, they reunited the cast of Clueless. It got me in the 90's spirit! While pinning this week I stumbled across a Pin- 333 Reasons Why Being a 90's Girl Rocked our Jellies Off! It brought back memories of things I had completely forgotten about! I hate that my children won't get to experience these things!
Here are some of my favorites...
My sister had one and I was so jealous because I didnt have one!
These were the perfect note writing pens! Did anyone else do every other word or every other letter in a different color??
Not sure what the purpose of these were but they sure kept us entertained!
Bought these from my local Goody's store.
Everybody dance now!
I never got 4 puppies!
Made sure I wore this on picture day!
Dr. Pepper flavor was the best!
Would always buy these from the school store
A must read!
Dinosaurs, Step by Step, Boy Meets World, Hanging with Mr. Cooper, Muppets Tonight...
The Torkelsons! Ok, can anyone explain how they dropped 2 children when they moved in with Brittany Murphy's family??
These were fun until you actually needed to color something in.
They were disgusting but I would drink them anyways because they were cool!
I remember these!
A great, forgotten movie!
I loved anything Mary Kate and Ashley!
What were some of your favorite things from the 90's?
