Simple Pumpkin Blended Coffee

I am not a fan of the typical store bought pumpkin spice coffee – but I have created a pumpkin blended coffee that I do enjoy! At times, the “pumpkin spice” essence in coffee leaves a bit of a chemical after taste (to me at least) so I blend my coffee with real pumpkin, brown sugar and cinnamon for a sweet, creamy pumpkin treat.

I am terrible at providing accurate measurements for this recipe (it was an “eyeballing it’ creation), so please use it as an inspiration for creating your own unique blended pumpkin coffee and adjust to your liking! Read more below to see how I make mine:

My 2018 Outdoor Haunt

One of my favorite things about the Halloween season is driving around and seeing everyone’s haunted houses, spooky stoops, and grinning gourds. I decided (despite the unseasonably warm temperature) to haunt the front of my house that last week in September and wanted to share with you how it turned out!

Easy Halloween Card Display

This is my first time sending and receiving Halloween cards from the amazing ghouls in the online Halloween community. I have appreciated all of the kindness and support from everyone AND all of the spooktacular Halloween wishes! There’s nothing like ringing in October than sending off and receiving a bright orange envelopes in the mailbox! I wanted to display my greetings I’ve received – but I wanted to do so the impatient crafter way. This October has been very business with work events and family events already so I wanted to show them off quickly.

Spooky Good Style: New Creepy Rags!

I feel like I’ve been representing fall in my wardrobe since the summer. A) Because I’m always cold and B) because I simply gravitate towards fall looks, colors and sweaters thus I do not have many more options.

I’ve received some messages and comments on my Instagram about where I found some of my new spooky rags along with this totally pumpkin orange loose knit sweater – so a blog post was warranted! Continue reading “Spooky Good Style: New Creepy Rags!”

Haunted Hometown: The Brady Theater

I have some of my fondest memories at the 104-year-old Brady Theater in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Everything from seeing STOMP! and the Beatles Tribute band with my family when I was a child, to experiencing the exhilarating sounds and fantastic performances from bands such as Vampire Weekend, Death Cab for Cutie, Cold War Kids, the Naked and Famous, Metric, Weezer and so much more in my high school years to early-20’s. Most notably, my husband proposed to me inside this haunted structure on April 13, 2012 (on my 21st birthday) during the Avett Brothers concert while they played their song “January Wedding.” Not only does this location hold a history for me personally, but it also is woven deep into Tulsa’s history and tells the history of the spirits that haunt it.

Love at First Fright: A Halloween Themed Wedding Shower

My brother is getting hitched on October 6 and my mom and I threw a bridal shower for his bride-to-be and my future sister on Saturday, Sept. 22! Since I volunteered to host it at my house – it was a no brainer that the event would need to be Halloween themed. I already had my decor out, so I embraced the atmosphere and called it a “Love at First Fright” wedding shower.

I wanted to share some photos, ideas and games we played at this frightfully fun shower so that YOU can be inspired to host one for a friend or family member this fall! Continue reading “Love at First Fright: A Halloween Themed Wedding Shower”
