Late for this post that is! Not even kidding you. I started this post at 4 or 5 this morning and I was gonna’ show you my new Halloween coffee mug and everything! I’m still gonna’ show you the mug because it’s super cute and has all of the Hocus Pocus Sanderson sisters on it. I love it! Oh, and my coffee of choice was a mix of Signature caramel/pecan and Sundae rocky road. Yes, 2 K-cups!  It’s a 24 oz. mug and perfect for early mornings.

Did everybody have a good Labor Day?? We had heat warnings so we spent our day inside in the glorious AC and had hot dogs in the air fryer and all kinds of chips and dips, homemade mac n’ cheese, and tons of those cotton candy grapes, watermelon… Oh, and there may have been some ice cream somewhere along the way.

This may or may not be an accurate description of me on holidays or basically any day that ends in “y.”

It wasn’t all AC and whirling fans for the long weekend tho because, hello?? Halloween stuff! This is the best Halloween store, Spirit Halloween. Such a cool place.

It was really freaky that this guy kept staring at me. Like his eyes seriously follow you… Sorry, Mr. Skelly but you’re a little too thin and you have no heart or brains.
And I’m pretty sure I was married to your twin brother…

Something else freaky? I met my doppelganger! We have the same eyes and eyebrows.

Oh, and I hit up Big Lots too because they have the most random stuff and a lot of it is pretty cool.

These, the pics down below? These, would not be the cool stuff so they didn’t make it back home with me. They moved and sang creepy songs in little kid voices and that’s a big fat fucking nope from me! No creepy kids singing and NOTHING that moves. The doll on the squeaky tricycle was the worst.

This next picture with the flashing lights and spooky Halloween sounds did make it home tho because it’s cool, and tis the season, right??

So, for being a laid back, “I’m not going out in the heat” weekend I was a little busy. Oh, I also hit up Home Depot, Burlington, and the Dollar Tree which, FYI should be renamed The Buck n’ a Quarter store. Seriously. It was so much easier when everything was a dollar. Twenty items = twenty dollars and some change for the tax. Now everything is $1.25 and there’s real math involved. Don’t you hate it when a store changes up your shopping flow? Price changing and moving crap from one side of the store to the other is annoying.

Long story short, I went on a Halloween frenzy and I’ll be posting some of my creations soon.

Have any of you started decorating for Halloween yet? I know it’s early and we have autumn first but man, who can resist the Halloween stuff?? It’s been a long, hot summer and we need that autumn vibe.

Omg. I feel like this post has gone on forever. Sorry for the novella. I hope your long weekend was whatever you wanted it to be and I hope you all enjoyed it! All of you, from the flooding in the east to the wildfires in the west, please be safe.

  1. I absolutely love your new coffee mug!
    We used to go all out and decorate for Halloween. Our house made the paper and people would record their kids coming up to the house. We had it all eve decorations that would move, strobe lights, fog machine, errie music but over the past 5 years we stopped because we might get 10-12 kids anymore.

    It sounds like you hit the jackpot with your shopping!


  2. Yeah, it was nonstop rain here. So much for our cookout! I’m not that much of a Halloween (or any holiday) enthusiast, but I did get out some decor yesterday. Yeah, that doll on the tricycle would get a big Nope from me. But I’m cracking up at its red hair. Maybe I should get it for my oldest red haired daughter and her 2 red head daughters. Lol, she’d kill me!


    1. Aw. Sorry about your rainout. That sucks. – I get excited about all of the holidays. I love Halloween but my all-time favorite is Christmas! I always feel like my 5 yr. old self at Christmas time. 🙂 – Yeah… Why do evil babies always have red hair?? Lol. – I’ve always wanted red hair but with my olive complexion, it doesn’t really work for me.


  3. Sounds like you had a great Labor Day filled with wonderful food. We didn’t do that at all. I can’t eat anything I want anymore. My doctor yells at me if I do.

    Have a fabulous day and rest of the week. Love and hugs, my friend. ♥


  4. Cool mug! With coffee, the bigger, the better. 🙂 Those kids are definitely creepy and freaky and I wouldn’t want them in my house, either. Love the lights, though! We haven’t taken part in Halloween for decades, but live on a quiet side street that wouldn’t get many visitors, anyway. That’s a great quote! “Normal” is different for everyone.


    1. Thank you. My son got the mug for me and I was surprised at how much coffee it holds! – Yes, those kids are creepy. I’m more of a make-it-scary at a toddler’s level of fright… Lol – Yep, normal is different for everyone and it’s so interesting to see what everyone else’s normal is.

  5. They upped the price at Dollar Tree just in time for our Christmas party last year. I had that special ed class for adults, and we were budgeting $5 for a gift exchange. That made the shopping for that all the more difficult for them. (Although, it was a good learning experience fort them.)


  6. Caramel pecan and Sundae rocky road? How is that coffee?
    Not many in Australia decorate for Halloween, certainly not me, although I do have a shrouded baby skeleton hanging in the back porch which has been there almost since I moved in and no one sees it.
    I think the children on the seesaw and tricycle would be great if they didn’t sing.


    1. Hahahaha! It’s delicious coffee! My daughter doesn’t get it either. She is a black coffee drinker all the way. 🙂 – Is Trick or Treating a thing over there?? It’s a lot different now than when I was a kid, from the costumes to the candy to the decorations.


      1. No trick or treating either. People made a half-hearted attempt a few years ago, but it didn’t catch on. I’ve heard some people throw Halloween parties for their kids and friends, which I think is safer than kids going door to door anyway, but it really isn’t a big thing here in Australia.


      2. More and more people are doing the same thing over here. They trick or treat only at houses they know, usually with a big group of kids they know and the parents are right behind them keeping an eye out. – Parties are really almost the thing to do here anymore, kids, parents, close friends. Sadly, the world isn’t as safe as it used to be. My trick-or-treating experience was totally different than my grandkids or even my kids. Starting with those ridiculously priced costumes!
