HaPpY HaLLoWeEn!

We had a busy weekend with lots o' Halloween festivities...
Here are some photos from the Halloween Carnival where my mom works...

Mister Christmas knows how to get his Halloween on, too!

We'll be thinking about DADDY as we trick-or-treat tonight.  That was something my monkeys LOVED to do with him.
Here they are in their FRIGHTFUL get-ups...

Aren't they SCARY and yet, so adorable at the same time!?!
Enjoy your Halloween, friends!

Winter Wonderland

Don't know what I would do without you.

Looking forward to celebrating my mom's birthday with some of my favorite people at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, tonight.
The monkeys and I played "hookie" yesterday.  
We took a "mental health" day.
Our day included cinnamon rolls, 
and hot cocoa with marshmallows.

All of this snowy, fall weather is getting me in the mood for the holidays.  
Speaking of that, here's a peek at my holiday show lineup:

Coming up in a few weeks...
I couldn't be more thrilled about the FIRST EVER 
SuGaR PLuM BaZaAr. 
Admission is FREE and there will be live music, food demos, and an amazing lineup of handmade and retail vendors.  I can't wait!

The first weekend in December...
Friday, December 2 from 5pm-10pm
Saturday, December 3 from 10am-4pm
Sherman Street Events Center - 1770 Sherman Street, Denver, CO.

This event is the creme de la creme, the big show, the SUPERBOWL of handmade events. :)
Here are some shots from last year...

I've been a vendor at HoLiDaY HaNdMaDe for the past 3 years, and I can always expect this show to be OFF THE HOOK.  
Get there early because they are giving away SWAG BAGS to the first 50 people on each day. Yaaaaayeah!

The weekend after that...'s the FiReFLymarket!!!!!
This is THE show for everyone in Boulder.  If you are looking for some amazing handmade in that neck of the woods - this is where you will find it.
This will be my 4th Firefly show.  I love those FIREFLIES!

The wonderful thing about all of these shows is that I get to do them right next to my partner-in-crime:
We're going to have sooooooo much fun!

There will be other shows sprinkled in and I will let you know as soon as I have all the details.
I'm really looking forward to getting my 
''FELT ON'' 
for the holidays!

Time to get to work and enjoy the view of this winter wonderland  through my window.

Keeping that under-bite warm and cozy

The cold weather has finally caught up to us.  Tomorrow, it will be snowing.
I have to make sure Bigsby stays all warm and cozy so...
...I couldn't resist taking about a hundred photos of him in his new fall sweater 
...and I could have taken a hundred more.
Doesn't he just look adorably ferocious?
He's a vicious beast...who shivers. :)
Stay warm, my friends!

to these two!!
Jenna and Kevin are officially husband and wife!!
It was a beautiful ceremony on a beautiful day!

That wasn't the only fun we had over the weekend!

It's that time of year that I love!
Leaves crunching, a chill in the air, and lots of SPOOKINESS floating around.
I love fall!

Love is in the air...

Say "hello" to one of my dearest friends, 
Jenna and her fiancé, Kevin.
These two LOVEBIRDS are getting married on Friday.

I am so DEEEEELIGHTED for them!  I can hardly wait!
She is going to be a BEEEEEAAAUUUUTIFUL bride!
(This is her looking cute in her tiara at her bachelorette party.)

Those who know me will tell you that I'm not exactly a gourmet chef.  In fact, I sometimes have difficulty finding my way around in the kitchen.

But today, I spent the entire day in an incredible kitchen, helping make delicious goodies for their wedding reception.
I helped prep the "SALTED CARAMEL APPLES." (Stay tuned for the recipe.  I will post it soon.)
There were several of us so we all worked on different projects...Here's a few shots of the other food prep...

(I prepared the tomatoes, onions, garlic, thyme, and olive oil for the roasted tomato soup, another recipe I hope to share very soon.)
YUMMY.  I can't wait to eat them.  The salted caramel was RIDICULOUS.

As I mentioned, we prepared all of the food in an AMAZING kitchen, in and AMAZING house which belongs to one of Kevin's close friends.  Here's a few shots of the house and the kitchen...

...and this is JUNEBUG. 
 She was such a good girl, today.

We had so much fun today.  Even with all of my "kitchen anxiety," I ended up REALLY enjoying the day.  I am so glad I could help my sweet friend get ready for her special day...
...and when I see the wedding guests sinking their teeth into their salted caramel apples, I will be proud on the inside knowing that I helped create those YUMMY treats.  
Happy Wednesday!!
