This is Halloween:

Happy Halloween week (halloweek?)!! I recently got back from visiting the Boyfriend, and I had SO much fun!
I'm going to start this post off with a really simple autumn recipe I think most of you probably know!
Pumpkin Seeds!!! So, you are carving your pumpkin for Halloween, and digging through guts and seeds, what are you going to do with all this mess?! EAT IT! Separate the guts and the seeds (time consuming, but worth it). Get a pan and put a little oil on it, enough to coat the bottom of the pan, spread your seeds out, and add a little butter. I salt mine to taste, heat the oven to about 350 and pop them in the oven. Keep a close eye on them and when they look golden brown, they're done!

Oh, the pumpkins that provided this delicious-ness went to great use too!
Cody's is the grand one on the left, and mine is the owl on the right! We had a lot of messy fun, and a small pumpkin guts fight. It was lovely!

What do you do with your pumpkin seeds?!

This is Halloween:

This D.I.Y. was inspired by this blogger's post: Candy Corn Love, I went about it a little differently though. Seriously guys, I love Halloween, maybe too much. If that is possible. It's the best holiday.  First I started with the supplies. (all found at micheal's or walmart)

Pretty simple stuff, yarn, foam cones(I would get white, We were NOT thinking about that) some little doo-dads, hot glue and super glue.

Start with a line of hot glue (or, as my fingers would call it, hot lava) And wrap the yarn around and around and around.  
Go according with candy corn colors (or do whatever colors you want, I won't judge, go crazy) do a second layer of yarn and glue accordingly.

Take coordinating felt colors and mark them in a circle (note: DO NOT USE RED, IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON USING A RED CRAYON ABORT MISSION) My mom and I were not thinking, we should have used chalk (my BFF) or a pencil. Cut the felt circles out and glue them to the top and bottom.
                                       Wait for the glue to dry annnd ADD DOO-DADS!
Happy halloween everyone!
