During a car ride home I asked the girls, “where do you want to live when you grow up?…

In the city?

Down by the water?

Up in the mountains?

In the country?”

It was a totally open ended question and I was ready to have all kinds of conversation about where they each thought the perfect place would be for them.

And Laina responded with just two sweet little words that I really was not prepared for.

“By you.”

Bless her heart.

They both want to live in our neighborhood…I must be doing something right!

The Creepy Crawler

Halloween is over!

This is the first year that I got to take over our annual Halloween party and getting the house, food, and games ready was enough to cause me to mix together a little something for myself.

Thank you Pinterest and your recommendation that I have the Creepy Crawler alcoholic beverage to help numb the stress of the party planning. And by “numb the stress” I mean “If you drink enough of these you will stop caring whether or not your house is clean when your guests arrive.”

The only thing creepy crawly about this drink is the spider ring I attached to the side…and that wasn’t even ON the original drink. You’ll never guess what they actually suggested we throw in the glass. Needless to say, I didn’t have any on hand.

Enjoy!:
