Spiders, Bats, Witches, Pumpkins, & Ghosts

Happy Halloween! We have been decorated indoors for a few weeks now but I wanted to wait until Halloween to share all of our decorations with you guys. I bought several of these items last Halloween when I had a rough weekend and had to undergo a little retail therapy which consisted of me visiting every TJ Maxx and Marshall's in the area and buying LOTS of discounted Halloween decorations. At least our house is incredibly festive now! Yesterday we finally bought pumpkins and today we put up our bats and spider web lights on the front porch. Here's what our house looks like right now:

Our Halloween wreath

Sasha's pumpkin necklace

Lucky's glow in the dark skeleton shirt

Tonight we will be decorating pumpkins and if I'm feeling really adventurous today then I may also be running Kiley's Virtual Halloween 5K! Check out her post for all the details on how you can participate and possibly win the prize which will be drawn randomly among all those who walk, run, bike, or swim at least 3.1 miles and link their photo with their race bib to Kiley's blog.

What are your Halloween plans? Have fun whatever you and yours choose to do!


  1. lol I love how all out you go! This puts my house to shame. We only had time for our pumpkins this year. normally we do lots of decorating outside but oh well. as you know fleas took priority! Also I love Sasha's and Lucky's outfits!!! lol and I love that lucky likes wearing them :)

  2. I am so bad about the decorations - my kids give me a hard time about it every year. Your stuff is so cute!

    I'm glad we trick or treated yesterday - I've got a sick kid home today...

  3. Wow, that's a lot of Halloween!! I love it. I wish I had the space to store a bunch of Halloween stuff after the holiday so I could go all out.

  4. LOVE all the decorations girl!! And you should totally do the 5K!! Even if it's on your treadmill, it counts, right?

  5. the decorations look great and your pups are looking too cute in their halloween gear! i love dressing riley up!
