Have you marked any good stuff off your list, too?


  1. Orange rolls from Shirley's? Yes, please!!! I love the sweet rolls from there. When I was young we always did cider and donuts on Halloween. I should do that this year. If I'm really good I'll make the donuts. Best.Ever.

  2. I love checking in on your blog to see what fun stuff you have planned. I'm gonna buy a whole bunch of orange food for our Halloween party on Saturday.

  3. you are one busy lady but sounds like fun.
    Have a great Halloween.

  4. Persuation is my favorite!!

  5. You have such a great balance between the fun stuff and the have-to dos.

    I wasn't able to enjoy Jane Austen books until I started watching the movies, they served as translators for me, so now when I read them I understand the language and can appreciate the wittiness going on.


Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
