25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have.

Support Our Troops with Operation Gratitude

I was researching ways to bake with Halloween candy along with other ideas, to bring you guys one of those "10 Things to Do With Leftover Candy" posts, when I came across an idea that deserves the spotlight all to itself.



Operation Gratitude sends about 100,000 care packages each year to deployed troops. They are currently accepting candy donations to add to their boxes. What a sweet way to give back.

What I really love about the program is how they also give to Wounded Warriors and children of deploying soldiers, with projects like Battalion Buddies.
