Quick announcement before the meat of the post! About the giveaway….

For the rest of you?

*apart from the pleasure of my company.

Can we just discuss Halloween for a minute? I freaking LOVE Halloween. Samhain. All Souls Eve. I love it. I love the candy, the fancy-dress parties, the eerie music and jack-o-lanterns. I love it.

What I DON’T LOVE? My son has taken it upon himself to DRIVE ME TEN SHADES OF CRAZY over his costume.  Here’s how it’s gone down.

“Momma, I wanna be a pumpkin! NO! I want to be a zombie killer. NO! I want to be a STORM TROOPER….”

He’s changed his mind roughly 23987534968734 times.  I have finally reached the point where the latest choice is IT.  This means I’m now on the hunt for some obscure wardrobe options for a 6 year old–one week before Halloween.

At least it’s now settled. Because it was near on driving me to drink.

Don’t get me wrong, being a Mom is pretty much my favorite thing in the whole world, but man alive do they test me. In fact, as I write this post, I’ve completely given up on thinking the Peanut will simply be happy coloring and eating EVERY APPLE EVER GROWN, and turned The Boxcar Children¹ and Annie on Netflix so that I can, you know, get shit done. I should’ve chosen more wisely. Because I can’t stop singing with Miss Hannigan.

I feel like I understand her.

 So, y’all know I’m on the Netflix Stream Team, (see sidebar) and this month…imma try something NEW. Don’t get your knickers in a twist, the recipe on my instagram page will still be featured (tonight or tomorrow AM). And…

you’ve gotta make this recipe. It’s life changing.

Without further ado..I MADE A QUIZ!!! It’s REALLY ACCURATE. IT WILL READ YOUR PERSONALITY… way better than Descartes or Judith Butler.[playbuzz-item url=””]

You should probably watch your death on…

Though Netflix sponsored these posts, all opinions and recipes are my own.

¹ OMG. The Boxcar Children on Netflix is sooooo good. I die. I loved that series growing up. I read them until the pages were torn and tattered.

talk foodie to me...
