Five Feel Goods (Halloween Edition)

Not only is it the weekend, but it is Halloween weekend. That is a bunch of double goodness if you ask me. Brian and I decided at last minute to have a Halloween party tomorrow night. And by last minute I mean we officially let everyone know the time. . .this morning. So we'll see how that turns out. Some people don't like Halloween. I am a person that in fact likes Halloween a lot. I think it's a fun holiday. And yes, I guess there are some aspects about it that maybe rub me the wrong way, but I really do appreciate the holiday for what it's worth. Watching scary movies while curled up in a blanket, carving pumpkins, drinking hot chocolate in the mornings instead of orange juice, gathering articles of clothing to create a costume, going to corn mazes on the weekends. . .see, Halloween really is a grand holiday.

And here are five Halloween-themed things that have made me feel good about October 31st:

This idea is adorable. You just stack two bunt cakes on each other and make them look like a pumpkin. Festive and delicious.

I watched Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho for the first time this October and I totally appreciated it. It's funny to see how much movies have changed. Especially where this movie is rated R and could probably pass for PG in today's world. I think everyone should indulge in old horror movies. Something about a black and white horror movie just gets me. I think Alfred Hitchcock is a genius.

I came across this costume idea on Pinterest and I've already decided that years from now when Brian and I have a little demon child running around, that the demon child will be a penguin, I will be Mary Poppins, and Brian will be Bert.

Michael Jackson's classic "Thriller" music video is PERFECT for Halloween. It cracks me up every time I watch it and one day I WILL learn the dance. This also brings back memories of my first boy/girl party in middle school, because my mom set this up for us to watch. Ah, the memories.

Last but not least, everyone in their right mind enjoys a good caramel apple when the Halloween season creeps around. I think they're delicious, but they have a few downfalls. First, I can never seem to eat the whole thing. Secondly, they are dang messy. I always end up with caramel covered fingers and a sticky face. It's like I'm in 2nd grade again and I don't know how to eat with my manners. But then I discovered a bit of heaven on one of my new favorite blogs,, when they made an easy recipe for caramel apple bites. I'm excited to try.

I hope everyone has a delightful and safe Halloween. Wish us luck on our party. We hope it comes together and turns out fun.
