I had my lonely breakfast at Tim Horton's with an apple cinnamon donut. I didn't ask if they had pumpkin flavoring for the coffee yet. I didn't want to confuse little old Ossanna, the cashier who is always there & knows how I like my coffee! It's kind of nice to be considered a "regular"!
Went to JoAnn Fabrics & picked up some orange tights for the girl (her school colors are black, white & orange!!), some really nice plushy H'ween hand towels & some silk fall flowers. All their H'ween stuff was 30% off.
Noise maker for my desk at work!!!
Just walked thru Marshall's / HomeGoods and looked at all their goodies. I wish I would have had my camera there. They had a set of little skeleton & ghost waterglobes. The globes were slightly bigger than a golfball and located in the belly region. The ghost's globe had a JOL in it. The skeleton was disturbing. He was sitting cross-legged and inside the globe, was his spine. However it did not reach all the way to the ribcage. So it basically looked like a white penis, especially with his hands down in front of it. It was funny and wrong on many levels!
Went to Hobby Lobby & finally got the cardstock and some stickers to make cards for the Card Exchange on the HalloweenForum. Guess I should get busy on those! I also found these guys...
too stinkin' cute!
At Michael's I got some self-adhesive craft foam that I'm going to use for Chris & Jimmy's masks (my hockey sentries) and a fuzzy brown spider with a 30" leg span. I'm ticked that I still haven't gotten an coupons emailed to me!
Then a NHR (not H'ween related) stop at Avenue for a pair of leggings & some undies.
When I stopped for lunch, I realized that I was already in the parking lot to Garden Ridge, so I ~had~ to go in. This is probably one of the best selections of outdoor stuff I've seen so far this year. 3 different styles of blowmolds - those things are scarce around here! A whole bunch of inflatables and lifesize skeletons for $50! I was tempted to get one & just push it around in a cart for fun! The 3' ones would fit in the baby seat, too! They also had the lifesize hanging ghosts & goblins, most of them with light & sound. Tons of Funkins & ceramic pumpkins / gourds. These are what I picked up....
He's about 18-20 inches tall.
Then I had to make one more NHR stop at Wal-Mart (darn laundry anyway) and found the Martha Halloween magazine, so I had to get it! I've heard good things about this year's offering from Miss Martha.
I totally love that she used 2" foam sheets to make her headstones!
I so want this cake!!
