Halloween treats: Muddy Buddies!

Muddy Buddies are one of those treats that can be made for any occasion. It is simple, sweet, and can be dressed up!

This fun muddy buddies recipe was discovered by A Pumpkin and  a Princess. It features some incredible Halloween treats that will wow at your next spooky party, or can be handed out as treats at a party or for an after sports Halloween treat!

You do not have to be super impressive in the kitchen, or even incredibly crafty to create this sweet treat. That may be why it is one of my favorites for this time of year. We aren’t all super great at being that Pinterest mom, lets face it — some of us are just Prime moms. This recipe is a no-fail recipe. Thanks to A Pumpkin and  a Princess you can look like you have it all together even when you are just barely holding on this Halloween.

End of Summer Party!!

August is coming to a close and soon Autumn will be here blowing its cool winds and shorter days our way. We decided to seize the moment and have one last blow out an end of summer party. We have a projector and the new Avengers just came out on Blu-ray so the kids wanted to have a movie night outdoors so they could lounge with friends in the grass and play on the swing set while watching a movie.

I wanted to do some fun and delicious treats so I did a little Pinterest stalking and found this incredible Italian Soda bar for an outdoor movie night at Thirty Handmade Days. Mique, the blogs creator has some incredible ideas for a low-budget fantastic movie night. I am so excited to set up my own Italian Soda Bar. My kids have Dairy Allergies so we made sure to purchase only dairy-free creamer for our soda bar. There are so many different flavors and types you can choose from, and the texture and taste wasn’t any different than the full dairy.

We even barbecued for the event, Italian sausage to keep with the theme! Our kids and their friends had a great night, evidenced by the way they fell asleep at the end of the movie still seated in their pillow pit they had created. I hope your summer ends on a similarly great note.
