#AskAwayFriday with Ana at Our Blended Marriage

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


Happy Friday, everyone!  It's time for another Ask Away Friday, something I look forward to blogging every week!  If you aren't familiar with it, it's when two bloggers exchange a set of 10 questions with one another and answer the questions on their own blog.  It's a fun way to connect and get to know one another.  Often, too, I learn more about myself with the insigtful questions I get asked. :)  This week, I had the pleasure of swapping questions with Ana from Our Blended Marriage.

Halloween Activities for Young Children When Trick or Treating May Not Be An Option

 Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


To Trick or Treat...or Not?


Spooky decorations, gory masks and scary costumes that contribute to the creepy setting as darkness takes over on Halloween night...

These are some of the reasons that many people are thrilled to celebrate Halloween.  These are also some reasons others are not so thrilled to celebrate especially parents with young children.  It is a tradition to dress up and go door-to-door trick or treating around the neighborhood to collect treats while admiring everyone's costumes and house decorations.  Trick or treating is not for everyone, however.  In the article link included below, you will find some fun ideas you can still do with kids who may be too young to trick or treat or for families that would rather find other ways to celebrate  Halloween.

  Fun, Goofy, Unique Costume Ideas  


Halloween will be here next week so I thought I'd share some costume ideas from a popular store and website: Spirit Halloween They have lots of great deals to save you money and various costume ideas for all ages and sizes.  I wanted to share some costumes that I thought were more on the goofy, creative or unique side!  After all, what other day can you get away with dressing up in a crazy costume aside from Halloween?

 Co-Hosting Wordless Wednesday Linky Party with Oh My Heartsie Girl

Welcome to another WW this month as I co-host this fun party for Oh My Heartsie Girl!  I wanted to share some of our activities we've been crossing off our Fall Bucket List this year.  This month, we were able to visit the pumpkin patch and go to a Trunk or Treat at my son's former preschool.  I'm glad we were able to get another great family photo taken while we visited.  Come party with us below, share your own photos or activities or take a look around to see what others have been busy with in October!

Halloween Home Decor and Crafts with Dollar Tree & Giveaway

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles


 Are you ready for Halloween?  I had the fun opportunity to write a review for some of Dollar Tree's Halloween decorations and crafting items.  My kids and I were excited when the big box of goodies arrived at our door.  We love Halloween at our house and decorate every year.  We actually already had some decorations from Dollar Tree so it worked out perfectly to receive more to add to our decor.  We had fun creating table settings, putting spider webs throughout the house and crafting with the bag of eyes and even the bags of candy corn.
