Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix for a Halloween Treat

I have to say, I’ve never been much into Halloween. Fall – yes. But specifically the “holiday” of Halloween – no. But now that Harper is here, I’m a little more interested in it. Today, I made a batch of pumpkin spice chex mix (complete with candy corn) to drop off to a few of our friends.

There’s nothing much to this – a few kinds of chex, some pretzels, pepitas and pecans all combine with butter, brown sugar, vanilla, pumpkin spice and a dash of salt. Bake it up for about 28 minutes and let them cool – drop in some candy corn and you’re done!

A fun little treat for your neighbors or the kiddos friends! We’re going to drop these off to a few friends for a socially-distanced porch visits over the next few days. Something to look forward to!

halloween costume: the birds

today i was thinking about my favorite creepy movies to watch on halloween. i don’t really like movies that make me jump out of my seat or are really gory but i do like a little creep – like hitchcock creep. enter: the birds.

this gave me the idea of being melanie daniles, played by tippi hedren, from the birds this halloween. the great thing about this particular costume is i can pull most of it together with items i already own. it’s pretty simple – opt for a sweater that matches your pencil skirt, add a little netting, pop it into your hair with some fake birds all over your bad self and you are ready to go!
