Gardener Village Witch hunt

The girls and I took a trip to Gardener Village to do the scavenger hunt or the "witch hunt" as we like to call it.  We had a great time wandering around finding all the super cute witches.  We also stopped for a caramel apple and some fudge (at sweet aftons).  The pumpkin pie fudge was AMAZING!

If you live close, its a super fun to go on the witch hunt (The form can be found HERE)  And you can get a cookie for finding all of them!

Happy Halloween!

A VERY hairy Tale....

I have been growing my hair out for a year or 2.  I suffered all summer with LONG hair...(I survived thanks to my Lilla Rose flexi clips).  I finally got tired of it....SO I GOT IT ALL CUT OFF!

Here is my Before picture:

And here is the after shots:

This is the shortest I have ever had my hair cut.....AND I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

My dear friend Andrea cut it for me.  She ended up in total taking about 13" off the back and 10.5" every where else.
 Gallon size Ziplock bag.

I was scared to try a new hair cut...but I am so glad I let her talk me into it.  I am donating it to Locks of Love.

So this could be the end of my story.....BUT IT ISN'T!

My mom wanted me to color her hair...but she had been meaning to get her hair cut too....SO she let me cut her hair (Yeah....I don't know that I would trust myself, but that's another story).  So she wanted about 8.5 inches taken off.  The girls and I talked her into taking the 10" off to be able to donate hers too.  So thats what we did.

This is us together with our "tails"

Now this is the end.  :-)

Heres the recipe:


24 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
1/2 box butterscotch or vanilla pudding mix, non-instant
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine


Cut dinner rolls in half and dip in dry pudding mix. Arrange rolls in sprayed bundt pan, alternately with pecans. Sprinkle any remaining pudding mix over the top. Combine brown sugar and butter. Heat together until butter is melted and a syrup is formed (microwave about 1 1/2 minutes). Pour syrup over rolls. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap. Let rise until double in size or even with top of bundt pan. Carefully remove wrap. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes. Cover with foil the last 15 minutes of baking. Immediately after baking, loosen from sides of the pan with a knife and invert onto a serving plate.
