White Chicken Chili and Pumpkin Passion Dessert

When I think about Halloween and food. I really think about comfort food. It's getting cold outside and fall has begun. Now that I have children to take out trick-or-treating, I tend to lean more toward recipes that are simple, somewhat healthy and are still considered comfort food. A little something to warm me up from the inside out. A friend of mine shared this White Chicken Chili recipe with me a few years ago...

Vote for your favorite Halloween couples costumes!

I LOVE Halloween. The candy, the decorations, the parties, and the COSTUMES! I have always loved dressing up and it became even better when I got married and could pair up with my spouse! He doesn't always love my ideas, but he's pretty good to go with the flow. Most of the time.

While I was brainstorming this years costume, I thought it would be fun to see what the other Diva's have dressed up as before. They were good sports and consented to letting me share with...

The WILD Jungle Safari Date

The WILD Jungle Safari Date Night

Happy, Happy Columbus Day! Today we are going to be doing our own exploring.  But don't you worry, we won't be going too far from home on this date. Instead, we'll use our surroundings to "explore the Wild Jungle!"

A Halloween Party for Families

I was SO excited to get this party started and share it with all of you! My husband and I love to entertain our family and friends. I don't know why, but we have since we've been married. Consider us the party people! {lol} And what a better excuse than a PRE-Halloween bash!?!
Okay, so the real purpose of our little party was actually to introduce our new babysitting co-op. I got tired of trying to find a babysitter every weekend...

Some “Mummy” Loves You

"Some Mummy Loves You'" A cute Halloween treat idea.

I think every Holiday is a reason to celebrate and Halloween is no exception. I think it's fun to surprise my husband and son with a little something on Halloween morning. It doesn't have to be expensive - get creative! Last year my husband got a Spider musical tie from the Dollar Store with his favorite pack of candy - classy, huh! This year, I decided to do a mummy theme.

For the card I used white card stock, black card stock, orange paper - whatever...

A Meal That Works For Any Special Occasion

I wanted to plan a special meal for my husband after he had a really rough day at work.  I was already cooking up a roast (one of his favorites - ah, again) so I had an idea to make our dinner a little more special than usual.  I pulled out our rose petals and sprinkled them around our plates on the table, added my grandmother's crystal candle holder and voila!

It didn't really take much effort on my part, but...
