    Hey, hey! I hope you’re all having a good morning so far. Today’s blog did NOT turn out as I had originally planned. I wanted to write a blog on how to make a lattice pie top (I’ve done it a million time before) but this was my first time making homemade pie crust. Needless to say, it did not turn out as planned.

  • DIY Halloween Decorations

    This Halloween weekend, we decided to throw a party. To begin planning, Hannah and I got out our computers, went on Pinterest and started mapping out ideas for decorations and food. We didn’t want to buy too many decorations, because we wanted to make a lot of them ourselves. Not only was this a good idea budget wise, it made the decorating process so much more fun and personal. Seriously, making the decorations was a blast. Trash Bag Spider Webs One spooky decoration we made were spider webs! These webs were perfect for corners of the room and definitely got everyone in the mood for halloween. We used black trash bags, followed a few…
