Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay. It's difficult to watch the news or scroll through Twitter when just the words "rape" and "molest" …

The Weekend IT List



1. Carve a Pumpkin. It's the weekend before Halloween! I assume you've already taken a trip to the pumpkin patch. Time to carve your Jack-O-Lanterns, or decorate a pumpkin. You can find tips on pumpkin carving on my Halloween blog. For a wealth of free Jack-O-Lantern printables, visit pumpkinmasters.com.

2. Pick a Last-Minute Halloween Costume. I love this Addam's Family Wednesday Costume. It's all about using what you already have in your closet. I think I may just snag this idea! I've got the hair. If you don't over think it and focus on something from everyday life or a movie character who basically wears normal clothes, you can come up with something using clothes you already have. Have a skirt suit? Add on a neck scarf, and you're a stewardess. Wear head-to-toe khaki, and you're on safari.


3. Go on a Leaf Hunt. The leaves are turning. Before winter sets in, head out with the kids and a basket to collect leaves, twigs, and pine cones for a weekend fall craft. Here's an easy pine cone craft I shared this week.


4. Serve Up Something Spooky. One of my favorite Halloween treats I've ever made were these Killer Cupcakes I put on the Halloween Blog last year. They're so fun for an October bash, and they're actually so easy. You can even start with store-bought mini cupcakes and simply top with red gel icing and the premade Wilton edible sugar knives.


5. Host a Scary Movie Night. Didn't get that Halloween party planned in time? Host a last-minute scary movie night! All you need to set the mood are candles and low-lighting and some quick store-bought Halloween treats. There are several spooky movies recently out on DVD like World War Z and The Conjuring (both highly recommended). For more scary movie ideas, you can check out my guide on the Top 200 Horror Films.
