Halloween

If you know me well, or at all, you would know that my favorite holiday is Halloween.
I could not resist taking the standard bowl of candy at the front door to the next level.
My idea? Candy for the kids, and friendly spirits for the adults.
So my pal Amanda snapped some photos while I did the styling. Meanwhile our 5 children did whatever it is they do.

Happy Halloween!

The Chilling Ghost Cocktail


I must have been guided by spirits, because I accidentally created a new to me 
Halloween Cocktail!

Seriously, I was making tacos for dinner and decided to make a lazy margarita. I mixed some fresh lime juice, triple sec, and Simply Lemonade...and then realized I didn't have any tequila.

I did have Bacardi though! After I put fresh lime juice on the rim and some himalayan pink salt, I stirred it up and could not figure out for the life of me why it looked blue-ish. And ghostly.
One halloween paper straw and a strip of washi tape later, you have the Chilling Ghost Cocktail!
