Random October Awesomeness!

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Hello, My Lovelies!  Happy Random Tuesday!

We're busy getting ready for Halloween around here.  What about you?  Do you get lots of Trick or Treaters?

Candy corn is about as scary as it gets around here!

I enjoyed participating in Vanessa's Witches Tea Party @ A Fanciful Twist.  You can visit my party here.  If I haven't visited your blog during the past several days, it's because you didn't host a party *sadface*  I still have several more blogs to visit.  They have been fun!

Book Club last Friday was fun!  We read Psycho, and here are the cupcakes Traci served:

Our friend the Nana Diana is one of the sweetest bloggers *ever*.  She is a prayer warrior, and she's constantly sharing prayer requests with her readers.

Plus she's funny.  She's actually wicked.  Last week she shared her son's latest hobby/side business, and I think they're fun.  He and a friend are making signs and selling them on Etsy, and their shop is called 79 North.  The posts are fun to read, too...they are witty.  There's a mean witty gene in that family I tell ya!  Check out their Facebook page here.

Check these out:

Aren't they great!

Diana is hosting a giveaway for one of these signs until Halloween.  Here is the link to her post.

Finally, Shelley received THE acceptance letter to the college of her dreams, Judson College in Marion, Alabama.  I'm happy she'll be close to home, and I'm happy she's (soon to be ) a Judson Girl!

Please come back Friday for my Literary Friday post!

Until next time...

  1. I'm so happy for Shelley!! Congratulations. ;)

  2. I love it that your decor is whimsical. We are not into scary either. :)
    The signs are terrific.
    Congratulations to Shelley! The campus looks idyllic.

  3. Ricki Jill! Thank you SOOO much- you are just an angel to promote their shop for them. I am so happy for them and you are a doll for doing this----AND thank you SO much for pointing out how wicked I Perfect for Halloween, huh?

    OMGOSH! Congratulations to Shelley. You must ALL be over the moon with that news! Getting into the college you want is not always an easy feat. I suspect you have a very smart girl there! Way to GO!!!!

    Have a great rest of the day- xo Diana

  4. Congrats go to Shelley! Yup over 200 kids on Halloween and I love those psycho cupcakes!!!
    Boo wishes to you and Happy Halloween.

  5. Hip hip hooray for Shelley!

    Love your decor as usual!

  6. What a happy random post. It seems like every year we are getting less and less children for trick or treating. We go all out for decorations in the yard. I think it may have a lot to do with we live on the end of a cul de sac. When you posted the cupcakes on your Instagram I thought you baked them and I was going to ask how you made the knives. LOL Love the cupcakes. I am in hopes of finding a Book Club soon. I think it would be so much fun to be involved in one. I hope you have a Spooktacular Halloween.

  7. Hip Hip Hooray for Shelly.
    Love the psycho cupcakes. ;-)
    Happy Halloween.

  8. OMG CONGRATS SHELLEY!!!! I'm doing a happy dance for her here!

  9. Congratulations to Shelley!

    I haven't had a chance to check out Vanessa's party, but I follow her on Instagram so I have seen some fun pics.

  10. Cute decorations. Love those psycho cupcakes. . . very clever. Congratulations to your daughter. Nice shout out for Diana's son's business, Ricki. The signs are great.

  11. Love your random pictures, Ricki Jill. Pictures of this and that are my favorite. Those cupcakes look so yummy, and how creative they are decorated. The sign 'But First Coffee' made me smile, as I love coffee, especially in the early morning. Your chandelier is so awesome, how cute is that? Great news about Shelley getting into the college she wanted, and being close to home is even better.

    Have a fun Halloween! I am just passing out candy to the sweet kids. I live in a new neighborhood, so there are only a few kids that have moved in so far.

    love, ~Sheri

  12. I hope that you had a fun Halloween dear :) looks so cute
