A Very "Vegas" Halloween

I like to find good things in life to celebrate as often as possible ... Life is short, look for the celebration!!

My Love for Trader Joe's

I love Trader Joe's! I was heading home from Vegas I stopped in and picked up a few items.

Just walking up and down the isles of this super cool store gives me a great sense of pleasure. This place has the coolest stuff.........seriously! I could spend a small fortune here for sure. It's just about as much fun to watch all the interesting people who shop here.

These chips are my favorite and I popped two bags into my neat little shopping bag ASAP! The only other two items I bought are the Turkish Smyrna Figs that are super yummy and of course the Garlic rice noodle bowls that were 99 cents.

Of course........I had to open a bag on my way home! It's a three hour drive!

Please Trader Joe's..........come to Utah!

These are the most delicious figs in the world! A little pricey but worth the splurge!

Halloween Carnival Fun

This past weekend my daughter Ivy planned a Halloween Carnival to celebrate both Lukas and Layni's October birthdays. They each were allowed to invite 6 friends or cousins! Lukas turned 7 and Layni will be 9 on Halloween! Have I told you "how much we LOVE Halloween in our family"?

My daughter Ivy is amazing! I can't tell you how much work she put into this party and how much fun it was. She is the best mom in the world! She had alot of help from a couple of cute girls in the neighborhood, her hubby, me and mom Becky. Oh yeah..... and Aunt Becky!

All of these yummy candy apples were handmade!

What a festive table she sets!
