Snowflakes and Trick-or-Treating?

Who would have thought!

I can't remember ever trick or treating in the snow? But then I feel like I have a really spotty childhood memory. Hmm... anyways. This morning Emily and I went "swinging in the snow" then "snow sliding" and now we are getting prepared to carve pumpkins. My mind is having seasonal confusion! Where did fall go?
I wanted to get some corn stalks for the yard before Thanksgiving.
Now I'm thinking what I need is some driveway salt.

But being the optimist I strive to be, I thought... snow, foliage... When the storm finishes and you can actually see more than a foot in front of you (God willing there are still leaves on the trees) the landscape's going to be totally gorgeous. So I did a little search on Pinterest. First I searched "Halloween and Snow".
Now I have tons of Snow White costume ideas.

this one is from CT during this storm

Clearly the search terms "Autumn and Snow" work much better.

and here is Emily.. Catching her first "tongue snow" of the season.

Three hours later....

Well here is to a weekend full of Halloween snowy activities.

Back Again!

Okay. I get it.

It's REALLY hard, this whole blog thing. But in the mayhem of having no time and being so overworked, I feel like I'm really missing something. I enjoy writing and reading and "linking" around that without it... I get kinda sad. Then I eat like a dozen cupcakes, but that's a whole other story.

Exciting news?
I kicked butt on a few exams
I LOVE my job at the VA Hospital
Emily is wilder than ever and being a pink peacock for Halloween

Oh yeah... I'm going to open an Etsy shop!
click me click me

There's nothing for sale yet but I have been keeping busy getting plenty of glue gun burns and needle pricks.
SO dum-dum-dum
it WILL be up and running shortly!

In the mean time.. here are some amazing things I've made the past few weeks
no these are clearly not my images. but I linked back so start cooking away!
