You guys?! Do you know what Thursday is? FALL! That’s right, this week is officially fall. FINALLY! Which also means my LEAST favorite time of the year, summer, is finally behind us. YAY! Although, I’ll be in California later this week where there’s a heat wave and it’s 95 degrees so I guess I won’t be escaping the summer weather just yet. BUT, here in Chicago the weather has been so beautiful!
And since it’s (almost) fall, that’s means I can finally start decorating for Halloween!! I am not going to lie to you guys…I took these photos back in late Julyish(?) but have waited to post them. I know a lot of people don’t start decorating for fall/Halloween until late September/October but not me! As most of you may know I LOVE holidays so I try to extend them for as long as possible. I like to get almost 2 months worth of the holiday. So for Halloween I start decorating on September 1. That way my decor is up from September – October 31.
And for Christmas I start decorating on November 1 so I get a little under two months of having that decor up. I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it works for me. The longer I get to have my holiday decor up, the happier my mood is! And speaking of holiday decor…
Here’s a look at this years Halloween Decor at HomeGoods! Continue reading
My LEAST favorite season (fall, winter + spring > summer) is FINALLY over, so you know what that means: It’s officially fall! YAY! If you read my last post, then you already know that I start decorating for fall/Halloween (and holidays in general) super early. In my last post I showed some cute Halloween decor from Micheals. But let’s not forget about our favorite furry friends!
My dog Loki is just as into holidays as me. (I mean I can’t really blame him, look who raised him). So I decided to run to Petco to see what adorable Halloween themed decor, treats, toys and snacks they had to offer.
Here’s the Halloween collection from Petco:
If you’ve been following along with this blog over the years then you’d know I’m a HUGE holiday lover. No seriously, I am OBSESSED with holidays. Honestly obsessed is putting it lightly. I’ve never met someone who was in love with holidays as much as me. I can’t explain why but there’s something about decorating for holidays and just holiday decor in general that just makes me happy. And shouldn’t we all be encouraging each other to do more of what makes us happy?
Because I love holidays so much, I don’t ever want them to end. That’s why I like to extend holidays for as long as possible. Don’t judge me but I legit decorate for holidays over a month before they are even set to happen. Halloween? I decorate for it on September 1st. Christmas? My tree is up and decorated by November 1st. Sorry not sorry!
Decorating for holidays just warms my heart.
As you all know, I LOVE holidays. No really, I love them. Christmas, Halloween, Easter, heck even Arbor Day! I just love celebrating. And no one does the holidays quite like the Disney Parks. With Halloween right around the corner, you might be wondering “Which is better during Halloween time, Disneyland or Disney World?”. Well, today I’m here to answer that question.
I’m going to be rating the parks based on five categorizes: Halloween Parties, Ride Layovers, Other Offerings Nearby, Treats and Decor. Each category will have a “winner”. In the end, the park with the most wins…wins!
Also, this post is essentially comparing Magic Kingdom (located in Walt Disney World Resort) and Disneyland (located within Disneyland Resort) during Halloween time.
Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s officially October which means Spooky Season is upon us! And honestly, what’s more spooky than Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando?! Two weeks ago I finally got to experience Halloween Horror Nights for the first time. I’m not going to lie, I had very high expectations since people always seem to praise this event. Even those who aren’t huge Universal fans, like myself, speak highly of HHN (Halloween Horror Nights).
Needless to say, it definitely lived up to the hype. I’m kind of bummed I waited this long to experience HHN. Since this was my first time at the event, I wanted to share with you all a few tips for surviving HHN. (And a few things I wished I had known prior to the event!).
