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. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch at Summer's Farm in Frederick, MD


Summer's Farm in Frederick, Maryland is one of my favorite places to take my girls during the fall season. (Those are my two daughters in the middle and their friends on the sides.) It's a family farm owned since the 1930s and has grown from a small dairy farm into the sprawling attraction it is now. For fall they're typically open towards the end of September through the beginning of November. In addition to the regular pumpkin patch adventure and corn maze, they host the Maryland Pumpkin Festival as well as field trips and children's parties.


There are so many games and activities for children at Summer's Farm, our favorites being the giant slides and the corn pits.


There is a wide variety of farm animals to look at, from goats and donkeys to pigs and various birds. This goat pictured above enjoyed a chin scratch from my daughter Kylie.



The corn maze is a must. For 2013 Summer's Farm displayed a design in their maze featuring the Baltimore Ravens.

My favorite part of going to Summer's Farm is the food. They sell the most incredible kettle corn, among other things at the concession. At the Country Market you can purchase large bags of kettle corn to take home, as well as goodies from McCutcheon's Apple Products. McCutcheon's is another family-owned business that started in the 1930s and is a local staple here in Frederick. My personal favorites from McCutcheon's are their apple cider and pumpkin butter.

You can find more info on Summer's Farm at their official website summersfarm.com. Where do you like to go to celebrate the season?
