Ahoy, spooky shoppers! The telltale sign that Halloween season has officially arrived at the harbor is when Spirit Halloween stores officially open!
Nothing is creepier than visiting the building where an abandoned Toys”R”Us or Sears retailer once thrived to find that they have been usurped by demonic animatronic creatures, walls of masks and costumes, and orange and black everything.
I made it a point to visit the first Spirit Halloween of the season on Friday, Aug. 9 (only ONE day after it just opened) on 71st Street in Tulsa, OK.
I always get a kick out of their displays and was giddy with Halloween glee to find that this location was well stocked and all of their frightening displays were working without a hitch. Keep reading to see some of the sights you can expect at Spirit Halloween stores in 2019!

I have always loved singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson – and there’s even more to love with the announcement of her Stranger Things inspired record coming out June 28!

This recipe I learned from my mom when she was on Weight Watchers when I was a kid. She made these using a mini muffin tin and each muffin was 1 point – and oh so delicious! I also love how quick they are to make – they’re an easy treat to whip up on a weeknight if you need to bring some baked goods to the office or a function the next day. All you need is:
- 1 box of spice cake mix
- 1 can of pumpkin puree
- 3/4 cup of water
- Cinnamon (optional)

I love gearing up for the Halloween season with some good Halloween books – everything from scary stories, how-to’s, recipes and other tales. I’m also all about saving money, so I often visit my local library to get my Halloween reading fix for free. My library has an awesome app that let’s me enter in my search term (which was Halloween), search the catalog and request to have the books I want sent to my local branch for pick up. It makes it a lot easier to peruse the Halloween collection at home and decide which ones I want!
I’m going to be completely honest, I am a bit of a slow reader so I’ve not finished all these books yet, but I want to share with you what I found in case you’re looking for some frightening new reads:
