The Last Halloween Post of 2010….I promise!


All fun things, Halloween included, must come to an end and since we have now entered the danger zone known as Thanksgivingandchristmas, I am giving up the ghost of my spooky themed posts and moving on to the season at hand. Before I can do that, I have to mention a little package I received in the mail last week, my loot from a Halloween swap I participated in. My swap partner was Miss Jessica from Duck Duck Cow and she definitely chose items that were right up my alley! (Sadly, I goofed on packing and some of the things I sent her got broken…boo indeed. I’m making it up to her though!)


My package included lots of creepy treats such as delicious candy, a cookie-making kit, orange Halloween socks (which came in so handy last night to combat the chills), sparkly bats and a huge jar of peanuts (how did she know to choose something so perfect?!?!).


My favorite item was probably the skull picture frame – totally keeping that out all year long! Swaps are really fun if you haven’t participated in one…even if you don’t have a blog. Everybody loves getting something in the mail (if the sender packed it well and it didn’t break…Sorry Jessica!).


Even Leon the Magnificent found something in the package to his liking… {seriously, I do NOT dress my dog in costumes, but he looks so cute}


Finally, I created a little poll so I could get some reader feedback about blog content for the rest of the year. This is my first year blogging through the holidays and I don’t want to disappoint! Please take a second and answer the poll (you can select more than 1). If there’s something I left out that you wish to read on SBS, please leave a comment! Thank you dears!
