Halloween Flashback




























I don’t have my littles this year for the first time EVER. Yes, this is the first time in the history of their lives that I will not be spending it  with them. I have to admit, if I think of it too long I may start to hyperventilate. I do acknowledge that it may not be fair that I have had my guys every Halloween since their dad and I split up three and a half years ago, but in my defense I will tell you that our court order did not recognize Halloween as a holiday so this is the first year it has fallen on his time with them. It was my bad luck that Halloween is on a Wednesday this year, but I’m sure they will have a blast with him. So, since my Halloween this year will not be as rowdy as usual I give to you…Halloweens past, in no particular order.

Can we say…cutest.zombies.ever??? They were four years old here. LeeLee LOVED that hoodie and lost it somewhere. He STILL talks about how much he misses it even though there is no freaking way it would still fit. 

Here is my sweet baby G’s first costume, last year. I almost didn’t dress him up but…I found a costume how-to by favorite evil genius, Martha Stewart and so how could I resist? (I couldn’t decide whether to make the shrimp or the tuna sushi so I made both!)75840_1666001058158_1481242764_1665323_6349247_n

Baking at Home

When I saw this adorable journal the other week at Whole Foods I couldn’t wait to get it home and put my recipes in it! I’ve been looking for the perfect way to store my recipes for years. C and I have a binder that we were cramming photocopied recipes in and I still had my plastic index card box but I never could seem to find it when I was ready to bake. It seemed almost every time I’d end up looking up my favorite recipes online to avoid rummaging through my drawers for my recipe box.

So I brought this cute notebook home and gleefully started putting my recipes in it. I realized I really needed to make a sour dough starter. I used to really enjoy making bread and I haven’t made any in years. C got tired of hearing me talk about wanting to make a starter and brought home yeast and milk, so tonight I finally made a fresh starter. I can’t wait to bake some bread!!
