graze & my new favorite snacks

Hi. My name's Katie & I'm an obsessive snacker.  Phew...SO glad to get that off my chest! You guys- I snack like no body's business- I feel like 50% of my day is spent in my pantry.  I'm constantly buying them, trying them and hoarding them.  So when I heard about graze boxes I was on board.  They're boxes with snacks (you can rate their snacks so you always get something you like) & they're delivered to your door. Genius.  Their snacks are designed with health in mind while still being delicious and perfectly portioned (so you don't accidentally eat a whole bag of chex mix...). And I have a super awesome present for you....

If you go to & set up an order using code FHDNHD65P you'll get your FIRST & FIFTH box free! Don't like your first box? Going on vacation? Need another one for said vacation?  You can cancel anytime without charge, put your box on hold & even order an extra box for the road.  There's no monthly service charge or cancelation pay for each box. Seriously, go, sign up, rate their snacks, enter the code and get your box! That's it. Happy Snacking, friends!

I was not paid for this post (that's how much I love graze) & all opinions are 100% my own.

A Little Weekend Treat...

In trying to find awesome prints for my son's bedroom (they need some updating), I was reminded of the wonderful quotes in Dr. Seuss' "Oh the Places You'll Go" and ended up whipping up this sweet & simple print to put up in his room.

Current Halloween Decor

I love to decorate for holidays, but mostly for Christmas!  Since I currently don't have a whole home to decorate, I thought it might be nice to give our room a festive Halloween feel.

I centered everything around a black framed mirror we already had.  The only things I bought were the candy & the frame. (Both on sale at Target.) I thought the frame would be good, because then I can simply change it out for each holiday/season!  Everything else I already had.  Let me break it down...

Those little jars were wedding presents & originally intended to flour, sugar, etc., but we aren't using them for that right now!  One has candy pumpkins (my FAVE!) & the other has candy corn.  That up there is some bunting I made with paper I already had.

I simply cut out the sized triangle I wanted with cardstock, then with each paper- folded it and cut!  I used a hot glue gun (because it was already on) and put some on the fold & the tip, but the baker's twine down & folded the triangle closed.  Easy- peesy! favorite part!  For this, I combined 2 tutorials I found online...
I took my fancy rubber-glue-gun-pad-thing (my glue gun came with it) & free-handed the letters  I wanted. One at a time, and immediately put silver glitter all over, then waited for it to dry and peeled it easily right off! Now- hot glue isn't the best medium for glitter to stick to. (esp. the thick glitter), so don't be too touchy and handle with care.  After cutting out my paper, I glued the letters. Then, I found a clip-art of a bat online & cut two out of black cardstock, as well as a moon out of yellow.  The bat's bodies are only glued, so their wings could come off & give a 3-d feel to them. 

Next, the bucket!

I used this tutorial from Elise Blaha's blog to create the pumpkins. She hangs then, but I added some green ribbon on top to use them for an "eye-level" decor.  I love them & my husband was even impressed! He said they look like they took a long time..which they didn't! Maybe that's why I love them so much...they were REALLY easy! I promise!  Behind the pumpkins are 3-d white letters (R & K) from out wedding.  
Well, there you have it!  A little decor to get us feeling spooky!
