It’s Just a Bunch of Hocus Pocus!

Happy Friday! I can’t believe that Halloween is in about 13 days! I have been struggling to find a topic to write about, but I think I have it! I will be talking about all things Halloween! I will be showing you my favorite costumes, treats, party ideas, places to go, traditions & all things spooky! So let’s get into it!

I love this time of year because my husband and I love to Boo our neighbors! Have you ever heard of Booing your neighbors? I never knew about this until I met my husband, so what we usually do is take a little Halloween inspired bucket, fill it with candy, fun cupcake mix, a fall candle, stickers, and fun little trinkets. Then you have to print out a sign that you’ve been booed & how they need to pass it along. I will attach the template that I have used over the years. Once you fill your bucket, you pick which lucky neighbors will be Booed with your Boo Basket! The thing is when you Boo someone you have to ring or knock on the door and run away. Your neighbor is not to know who did it. This is seriously so fun, I almost pee my pants every time I see my hubby run away from a house so he doesn’t get caught.

Here are some examples:                                              This is our BOO Basket from last year!

Usually, after we Boo our neighbors, we like to go to the pumpkin patch the next day. I love having a pumpkin spice coffee in my hand while trying to pick out the perfect pumpkin! We are not sure about the type of carving we will be putting on our pumpkin this year, but here are some pictures from last year!

Pumpkin Patch Fun!
