Last weekend I finally had the chance to do something I've always wanted to do:
Hit up a post-Halloween sale.
Since I host a lot of events and parties I need costuming stuff. Lots of it. And now that I have a husband and a baby to dress for these events as well, I need triple the amount of costuming accessories.
The Halloween shop's prices weren't as low as I expected, (only 50% off) so I didn't score the haul I was expecting. I did, however, manage to find some heart shaped sun glasses and pilots cap. Two things I've always wanted. Not just for costuming but for everyday kind of of wear. I got some other doodads but nothing that compares to the awesomeness of hearties and a pilots cap.
The pilot cap has been begging me to dress up as Bessie Coleman, the first black female pilot who just so happens to be from one of my hometowns, Atlanta, TX.
I think I could pull it off!
This post is about to get a bit random so bear with me.
Here's another one of my .99 cent eBay finds. Isn't it lovely?
For the past week I've been making fascinators and other headpieces for myself and also to sell in my Etsy shop for a little Christmas shopping money. What do you think?
This one with the colorful feathers is still in the making.
And a lace tiara! Would be great for a wedding, no?
All aboard the Random Express! Next stop: pumpkin cornbread!
I've never cooked with pumpkin before until recently when I tried a recipe for pumpkin cornbread dressing with sage and country sausage. It was STUPID AWESOME! My husband bought too much pumpkin so I've been trying to find ways to get rid of it. Ladies and gents: pumpkin cornbread.
Prepare two packages of sweet cornbread mix (I used Jiffy) and then add a can of pureed pumpkin and cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix. Eat with honey and butter or just by itself... er after you bake it of course. It's like and autumn party in your mouth! (And it's the start of making aforementioned pumpkin dressing)
So that's what I've been up to! How are ya'll doing?
Er, I mean "you all". Not "ya'll".
Watch this video. You wont regret it and it's River approved.
