I LOVE Halloween

Happy Halloween, friends! Clearly, by now, y'all know that I LOVE Halloween. I LOVE decorating, dressing up, seeing kids dressed up, etc. We don't get any trick-or-treaters since we live in a condo complex with very few children. I can't wait until we have our own house with kids running up to the door in their cute costumes asking for candy. So, so fun. I want to be the "good" house that gives out full candy bars instead of the minis so that kids come to our house every year, ha, remember "those" houses?

Since we won't be waiting by the door with candy, Michael and I will be watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on ABC.

How are you celebrating Halloween tonight? 
LOVE, sje

I LOVE the Halloween Party Recap

I know...it's not Halloween yet and we've already celebrated, ha! We had so much fun at our Halloween party with some great friends. Michael and I spent the day buying last minute supplies and decorating our condo. We dressed up in our costumes and awaited the arrival of our guests. Everyone looked great and seemed to have a great time. Later in the evening we took a party bus downtown and finished the night with some dancing. If you live in Charleston, I highly recommend Charleston Style Limo for your party transportation.

I LOVE Flashback Friday

We made it y'all...it's finally Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? We are having our Halloween Party on Saturday night and are super pumped about it. Pictures will come next week :)

Today's flashback doesn't need a title...

Ohhhh, if we could go back to the days when a phone was a phone and a tube was a tube. 

I saw this and fell in LOVE with it so I had to share.

Have a great weekend, friends! Are you celebrating Halloween this weekend? If so, what are you doing?
LOVE, sje

I LOVE Taylor Swift

Yes, I am a 27 year old married lady who LOVES me some T. Swift! The fact that she writes her own lyrics and music is a sign of pure genius and talent. Yesterday, I bought her new album, Red, and have listened to it on repeat. Any artist who sings from their personal life experiences and emotions will always tug at one's heartstrings (ie: Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Adele, Coldplay, etc). Even if you want to hate them, you can't.

Do you LOVE Taylor Swift? Have you listened to her new album yet? If so, what do you think?

LOVE, sje

I LOVE Halloween Parties

This Saturday will mark the 3rd year of our Annual Halloween Party and I can not wait! I LOVE hosting get-together's, especially, when a holiday is involved. I will jump at the opportunity to decorate our condo, make themed food and drinks, and have our friends over for a good time. Have no doubt friends - costumes are a must!

Here's a look at our Halloween costumes the past 2 years (yes, Michael is a gorilla every year):

You better believe I have been "pinteresting" like crazy to get some idea's for this year's bash! Here are some idea's that I LOVE and just might have to do this year:

*I made this dip last year and fell in LOVE with it. I will be making it again this year!*

Do you LOVE Halloween Parties as much as I do? What are some fun Halloween recipes that you've used in the past? What about decorating advice? I need all the help I can get :)

LOVE, sje

I LOVE the weekend recap

So, if you didn't already guess from Thursday's post, Michael and I spent the weekend in Boone, NC. We got coffee at Stick Boy every morning, spent time out in the yard with our nephews, ate dinner at The Peddler, went to the AppState football game, and shared lots of laughs. We had a wonderful weekend with family (although, missing Daniel and Ash) and LOVED every minute.

I LOVE redesign

As y'all can clearly tell - I decided to redo the look of my blog. Change is a good thing, right?! Here are some tips on how to navigate my "new" blog:

~This new template makes searching my blog for posts, pictures, recipes, whatever, much easier. To the left of the page where it reads "Classic" there is an arrow to choose which way you would like to read this blog. If you are in search for a specific post you can switch the way you are viewing my blog. The best way to understand this is to try it out on your own. You'll see how easy it will be to find something specific.

~To the right of the page you'll see a black bar; hover over this bar to find the sections "About Me", "Followers" (which you should be if you aren't), "Blog Archive", "Blogs I LOVE", and "Subscribe" (remember to do this so you get my blog posts by email).

~The search bar is now at the top, right side of the page so if you want to read all my posts about one subject (example: beach, fashion, etc), that's where you'll type it in.

~If you want to get back to the home page, click "Home" on the top, left side of the page or click on the blog title.

~At the bottom of each post you have the option to share it on Google+, Twitter, or like it on Facebook. You have my permission - share your little heart out!

Easy, right?! I think the new design is much more polished and will make reading my posts easier. Don't ya think?

Wow...three posts in one day. It must be my Friday ;)

I promise there won't be any more posts today!

LOVE, sje
