Fall Chex Mix Recipe
Chocolate Chex Cereal
Brach’s Autumn Mix
Nestle Butterscotch Chips
Yogurt Covered Pretzels
Pour all ingredients into bowl, mix and voila! You can really add or subtract whatever ingredients you desire but I suggest a good mix of sweet, salty, crunchy and chocolate. I was quite surprised at how addictive this mix was. Snackers beware of this highly addictive chex mix. I made this last year and knew that I’d be making it again this year. After a little weekend gathering, I sent everyone home with bags of this stuff – after all, my mom always says, “share the fat”!

Decorating for the holidays has always been the kind of mom task I’ve aspired to be good at. I remember visiting other friends or neighbors houses and being mesmerized at their beautiful holiday displays. Then, I grew older and would stand in awe at the gorgeous displays in Martha Stewart Living magazine or the Pottery Barn stores. I can’t quite describe the way family holidays make me feel – they’re just the kind of creature comfort I’m always longing for.
Halloween is a rather silly holiday but I’m all about taking advantage of what we have and what we have is a holiday called Halloween. While I don’t embrace the spooky side, I love to indulge the fall harvest side. There’s nothing better than the rich hues of Fall coupled with the smell of a warm fire on a cool autumn eve.
I’m forever drawn to the classics and what’s more classic for Halloween than a black cat and pumpkins?! I’m not the best at finding hidden gems in antique stores (though not for lack of trying). I’ve rounded up some of the decorations catching my eye this year that pay homage to the vintage vibes of bygone days. Usually you can score some pretty cute finds at vintage fairs this time of year but since public events are not happening, the Internet will have to suffice.
If you know of any cute shops with vintage Halloween decor, please let me know! I’m always searching for things off the beaten path.
