I can’t believe that it is less than a week until Halloween! I still have parts of my son’s costume to get ready (I was lucky enough to be able to find a ‘bald’ cap at the dollar store), and it felt like there was lots of time left, until I realized we are at 6 days to go! Yikes!

Mari chose Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites from The Bitter Side of Sweet. “I love smaller size treats because it makes me more aware of enjoying the flavor instead of just stuffing my face.”
Mari chose Honey Cinnamon Monkey Bread from The Gold Lining Girl. “I also chose Sarah’s monkey bread share because I’ve had a fascination with monkey bread and all the different ways it can be made plus I just get a kick out of the name :)”
Kimberly chose 5 Family Costume Ideas for Halloween or Cosplay from Comic Con Family. “I love to see families dress up together for Halloween. These ideas are awesome.”
Kimberly chose Don’t Let Being Busy Stop You From Working Out! from our very own April from April Noelle. “I am sometimes intimidated by exercise techniques for fear of doing them incorrectly. This post shows me how to do a workout correctly. Great tips!”
Stacey chose Fudgy M&M Magic Bars from Delightful E Made. “Oh my, these look divine! I would struggle with not eating the whole thing and I can’t wait to make these, maybe it will be our baking treat for Halloween night! Thank you so much for sharing!”
Stacey chose A Family Favorite: Lemon Sandwich Cookies from Try Anything Once. “I would love to have a big batch of these with a cup of hot cocoa! Something else to add to my holiday baking list. Thank you for sharing!”
Carolyn chose Making Monster Pizza Memories in the Kitchen for Halloween from Jodie Fitz.
Carolyn chose Mason Jar Ring Pumpkin with Washi Tape from Refresh Living.
Bev chose DIY Marbelized Pumpkins from Lolly Jane. “Love these marbleized pumpkins. So different and easy to do.”
Bev chose Mini Fajita Bowls and Easy Guacamole from Nap Time Creations. “What a great dinner idea. Love the shells in muffin tins and then load up your fajita fixings.”
Silvie chose Boo-Yah! Cute Ghosties Embroidery Hoop Art from Flamingo Toes. “I love embroidering and this craft is adorable! I like that the directions are both easy and easy to follow.”
Silvie chose Simple Rosemary Pork Chops from Mama Mommy Mom. “I love eating pork chops but I don’t have a lot of recipes so I don’t cook them often. This looks like a delicious recipe that I can’t wait to try.”
Heather chose Mexican Chicken Satay Recipe – Tailgating Party Food from Just JP. “My kids love the fun of eating food on skewers and dipping in sauces. This fun Mexican flavored satay will be making an appearance at our dinner table soon.”
Heather chose Fall Poetry Printables from The Sparrow’s Home. “I really like the idea of changing up the decor with each season. But, I don’t have the storage space or funds for seasonal pillows, throws, etc. Printing out pretty seasonal sayings and slipping them in an Ikea frame is definitely something I can afford and find the space for. Thanks for designing these and sharing.”
Natasha chose Removing Stress From Your Commute from Urban Naturale. “I get so easily frustrated on my morning commute. These are some great tips for relaxing and being stress-free. Thanks for sharing!”
Natasha chose Parenthood is Not a Competition from Super Blogging Mama. “I hear so many instances of moms judging other moms for decisions and choices made, and it is so unfortunate. Because we’re all just trying to do what’s right by ourselves and our children. Thanks for sharing this post – these are my sentiments as well.”
