Halloween 2011

We were fortunate enough to receive an invite to the infamous Wiggleston Halloween shindig this year.  Miranda does an amazing job picking a theme and running with it every year.  This year was all about pirates.  Pirates of the Carribean was playing, there was a huge sails with a lightning storm projected on it, skeletons, a treasure hunt and boat races in the basement, complete with a motorized shark balloon.  I put together our costumes using all items from Goodwill (except the Jack Sparrow boot covers Bradley wore that came from an online costume site).  We had a blast and I can’t wait to see what next year holds.

On the hunt for treasure.  Photo op with the Captain:

I volunteered to bring a sweet snack and a drink.  After seeing this pin of cute little boat caramel pies, I was inspired to try my buttermilk pie recipe in mini form:

I found a football mold pan on Amazon that worked perfectly to shape the boats.  Then I used lollipop sticks and the free printable from this site for the sails.  I tried my hand at this butterbeer recipe that I found through Pinterest.  It was good, but trying to serve it cold was a little unfortunate, because the butter separated and hardened again once it was cold.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
