It is no surprise among my friends that I simply love Halloween. The decorations, the costumes, the trick or treaters.....everything! Last year I decorated the house with spider webs, Halloween decorations as I do every year. But last year was our first year without our kids home. (insert sad face here.) Add to that, it's the month for football games, homecoming dance, annual Key West trip and the State Fair.

In the past our neighborhood has done "Boo Basket", so I wanted to bring this back to our small community and show the new neighbors how to put one together. You don't have to spend a lot of money to fill a basket or bag. Some ideas can be candy, stationary, cookies, wine. It's up to you how much or little you wish to add. The point is to make it fun.
Of course, I can't do anything without adding pressure and being over committed, so we also have on Saturday a wedding. Not just any wedding, my mother in laws wedding. I always feel that I work much better under pressure. Will see how that theory works for me this coming weekend. One thing for sure, I will be enjoying my apple-tini's on Monday night from the event filled weekend!
