Friday Favorites - Ready for Halloween Edition

Yes, peeps... you read that right.  I am READY for Halloween. hahaha 
I am aware that it is technically still August - but I've been in school for 3 weeks (progress reports are due on Monday - eeek!) so that means Halloween/Fall needs to hurry up and get here.  Halloween is seriously my favorite and I am more than a little anxious for it to arrive.

So today I'm going to share a few of my favorite Halloween things that I'm excited about!
Link up with me, Erika or Narci grab our graphic below and share your favorites for the week as well!


What really got my Halloween excitement started was getting this stinkin' adorable shirt in the mail from Bella Creative Expressions Boutique.  I mean...

Her quality is AMAZING and her prices are great.  This was a shirt I ordered from a sample sale she did last year and this year it will actually fit!

I don't hold on to many of Griffin's clothes - but I have big plans to take all her personalized and monogrammed things and make a big quilt when she's older.  AWWWWWWWWW! :)

I love how festive and fun these shirts are and you'll be seeing A LOT of them starting mid-September.  Yes... I'm that girl. 

Speaking of that girl :)  I can't get enough of these Halloween dresses by Appearel Tree.  The pre-order for them starts today at 11 am CST (along with the leggings!)

These ruffles would be PERFECT with Griffin's monogrammed shirts!

And this dress is on it's way to GG!  Can't wait!!!

I love to be festive as well - and polka dots are my love language - so this polka dot cardigan from ModCloth is right up my alley.  Black t-shirt, jeans and sparkly TOMS and I'm good to go :)

I'm pretty sure that this Old Navy tee will be Mason's new favorite shirt :)

I'm not sure how Luke will feel about a "themed" shirt this year... so I'm loving this gingham option for him.  Festive, but without a skeleton :)

I am making myself wait until at least mid-September to decorate my house - but that doesn't mean I can't start brainstorming ideas!  If you don't want to have a full size Halloween Tree in your house, this one from Pier-1 is awesome!  It's about 2 feet tall and it would be perfect on my entryway table :)  Just sayin'

And these glitter ornaments would be perfect hanging on it!

I was going to share a pillow project I'm working on with y'all today... BUT time got away from me (and I have to make answer keys to 3 tests as well as review games before tomorrow!), so I'm saving it for later :)  In the meantime, check out my inspiration...

I'm also trying a few burlap covers with painted words on them.  We'll see how it goes!

I love this bat chandelier from Pottery Barn Kids, but it's $60.... I have the frame from Griffin's mobile that she destroyed saved in my craft closet so I'm going to attempt to make this one on my own!

And two more other craft ideas I'll be working on this weekend as well!

Last - if you need some Fall at your house this weekend, you should make these mini pumpkin cream pies :)  You can't help but be festive when eating one (or three) of them. hahaha

I think you probably think I'm nuts after this post - and if that's the case you can come back and read it October 1st :)  ORRRR you can go pre-order one of the cutest Halloween dresses there ever was, make a Halloween pillow and eat a pumpkin cream pie. hahaha

And since I can't leave you without a pic of my kids.... here's our family Halloween pic from last year.... Old McAnally Had a Farm :)

Happy Friday, Friends!!!

  1. Griffin's new personalized ghost shirt is so cute!
    Your bat mobile will be fun! I couldn't have one in my house though because bats freak me out! We've had three come inside for a visit this year, and I am always on edge about them.
    I'll vouch for your pumpkin cream pies--they're amazing!!

  2. The Halloween costumes last year are adorable and I love all the outfits for Griffin. I am going to be honest...Halloween is not my thing. I like to get creative with Jack's costume but that's about it. make it look super fun. I might just have to give it a shot. :) have a great Friday!
