Easy DIY Halloween Party Favors

There are so many cute Halloween party favor ideas floating about the web, like the witch's broom goodie bags for example, though they do require some DIY experience. These tin-tie bakery bags are the perfect size for a Halloween goodie bag, and they require no crafting skills. I love howthe favor bags I made them with are cute enough for kids but still nice enough for the grown-ups as well. All you need are the bakery bags, ribbon, and 3D Halloween stickers from the craft store. You can use the smaller bag pictured above or a larger bakery bag with a window display. I like to fill the larger ones with treats to give out as holiday presents to neighbors and teachers.



Simply fill the bags with a Halloween treat (homemade or store-bought), close them up and tie them off with ribbon, then affix a sticker to each bag. These are food-grade bags, so they're perfect to fill with homemade fall treats like popcorn, kettle corn, or Halloween chocolates. Try my DIY gourmet popcorn

Date Night: Abuelos & A Movie


Since I met my fiance last year, I've eaten out more times during this last year then...well, possibly more than I have in my entire life. We do tend to try new places, but whenever we really like a restaurant or coffee shop, we go back often. Abuelos is definitely one of those places. I have to really be in the mood for Mexican food, but whenever I am, I sure do love Abuelos. It's so pretty on the inside with a great atmosphere, the food is so delicious, and it's fairly affordable.




They have three different kinds of salsa - a mild, spicy, and a green salsa. They usually bring us a bowl of the green. Ken likes the spicy one, and I really love the sweet green salsa.





This last time I got the fajitas, and they were of course amazing; I don't think I've ever not liked fajitas at any Mexican restaurant. Two other entrees I've tried there include the chimichanga and the steak medallions. They're both so good, I'd definitely recommend them.



After dinner we saw Keanu...no, it won't be up for an Oscar, but it was sooo funny. Sometimes you just have to watch a ridiculous, silly movie and have fun.
