Becoming Fiona Applesauce from Bob’s Burgers

I love Bob’s Burgers on Fox! It’s always been one of my favorite shows and the humor is always spot on. I love it so much so,  that I decided I had to copy Gene Belcher’s Halloween costume he made this year.

In the Halloween episode, season 10, episode 4 (aired on Oct. 20, 2019), the Belcher kids line up and show off their costumes and I lost it when Gene presented himself as “Fiona Applesauce – Fiona Apple’s saucy aunt.”

I was surprised at the end of the recent episode because it actually features Fiona Apple singing the closing credits. Check out this Pitchfork article to see a photo of Gene’s Fiona Applesauce costume I was inspired to create and to learn more about Fiona apple’s special song for the Halloween episode.

I adore Fiona Apple’s music, so I knew I would equally love being her saucy aunt for Halloween.

Halloween Travels: Harvest Festival and Pumpkin Nights at Silver Dollar City

I was so excited to go on a mini excursion to celebrate my favorite season of all! I went to visit the inaugural Pumpkin Nights at Silver Dollar City Amusement Park in Branson, MO this past weekend.

Branson is a quick three hour drive from where I live and I have lots of fun and fond memories going to Silver Dollar City with my family growing up. It was always a summer vacation spot for us, but I’ve never been to visit this late in the year. The last time I was there was in the summer when I had to have been about 11 or 12 years old.

Let me tell you something though about this trip – the fall foliage driving through the Ozarks this time of year is absolutely magical. I was having an equally fun time soaking in all of the colors of the leaves as I did enjoying the masterfully carved pumpkins in the theme park.

If you would like to take a look at what the first ever Pumpkin Nights is like, keep on reading to see lots of photos!

Spooky Good Style: Halloween Outfits!

My love for Halloween and clothes both have something scary in common. I’m obsessed with both! I have noticed that my Halloween shirt collection is starting to get a bit out of control, but it is OK to wear these tops year-round, am I right?!

I have so much fun putting together different Halloween theme styles and looks (I blame my Assistant Manager days back at Maurice’s when I clothed mannequins each week) so I wanted to share some of my looks with you!

Perhaps you’re looking for something to wear to work or to the office this Halloween that isn’t necessarily a full on costume. These looks are perfect for that occasion and every day this month!

FatBoy Ice Cream Cookies and “Scream” Milkshake

When you think about Halloween does ice cream come to mind? Perhaps I’m the only one who has ice cream on the mind all the time! It’s the perfect treat for any time of year (for some reason I think I crave it more when it gets cold than when it is hot out!).

I was thrilled when I was asked to work with FatBoy Ice Cream to share some ways that you can spookify your ice cream treats this month!

Come take a tour of my haunted abode this season! I always love to share photos of how I spooked my halls for the season to inspire you and your decorating. I have a fairly small house and not enough room sometimes to both store and display my ghoulish goodies but I try to do the best with the space I have.

My favorite addition this year is my Old Time Pottery Halloween Tree! I have always wanted to make a Halloween tree and they teamed up with me this year to make my Halloween decorating dream a reality. I could not have been more proud or excited about working with them and how it turned out.
