Spookify Your Halloween Decor with Lighting- Philips Hue Halloween

This post brought to you by Philips and MomTrends. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Halloween is coming up and I decided to take things to the next level.  Nothing screams Halloween more than spooky music and sounds.  Well why not have those spooky sounds and make your lights go with them.  Say what??!  Is that even possible? Umm yes it is and it's AWESOME!  Philips Hue are lights that connect to an app that you can program and that can make the lights basically any color that you would want.  So I took these lights and put them with my Halloween decor to make a spooky feel and look.  These are going to be awesome when I have a Halloween party or when trick or treaters come to my door.

Gift Guide for Moms

This is a sponsored post, all opinions are 100% my own.

The holiday season is coming up soon, so it is time to start thinking about ideas for gifts. I think that one of the hardest people to buy for is Moms whether it be for my mom or mother in law or one of my friends, it's hard to find something.  I know for me, I usually want something that is personalized or something that I can use to have a break or be pampered.  Luckily for us, UncommonGoods and a large variety of gifts that would be perfect for the moms in our lives.

A Letter to my Tween Son- Yoplait Go Big

Teens and tweens are amazing.  The things that they have to go through nowadays and the way that they excel is just plain awesome.  The way that they get around a computer or mobile device is just crazy, they know much more about them than I do!  Yoplait is challenging us to take a look at our tween/teens and tell them how amazing they are! 

My son is awesome and amazing.  He is such a sweet and sensitive boy who is kind and friendly.  He is the oldest of 5 kids and he doesn't have the easiest job since he is a major help around the house.  When the other kids get to play, he sometimes has to work to help me out and he does such a good job at it!  He is growing up so fast and becoming a fun, responsible and sweet young man.

We have been redoing our downstairs for the past year and I am LOVING all the changes that we have done!  It's been so fun to watch it transform to a very bright kitchen!  We have loved everything about it!!  Well I wanted to add one more thing to our dining room to really make it pop, so we decided to add a shiplap wall and it's so awesome!! It was an easy project (it only took a couple of evenings) and it cost us LESS than we expected (that never happens!).   I so badly want to do our master bedroom now because I love it so much!

DIY My Little Pony Fluttershy Equestria Girls Costume

This post contains affiliate links.

My little girl is obsessed with My Little Pony.  She just loves it and I knew when it was time to come up with a Halloween costume that she would want to be a Little Pony for Halloween. Of course she picked one that is as popular, Fluttershy.  Fluttershy is her favorite because she is nice and kind and shy, just like she is!  It melted my heart when she told me that because that is just like her.  I decided that I didn't want to do a full pony costume and since they already have the pony as girls (the Equestria Girls) that would be the easiest way to make the costume.  So that is what we did and she LOVES her costume and she can't wait to go trick or treating with it!
