Happy Hallo-week! Since Halloween doesn’t actually occur until next Wednesday, it’s fair to ask WTF we’re talking about. Well, for a lot of people, Halloween will first be celebrated on Saturday night. Because when you’re trying to wrangle 4-9 children of your own, and at least five more dropped on your doorstep by in-laws and siblings, while trying to simultaneously turn on the lightsaber (ad nauseum), fixing this mask or that tail, putting-on-and-then-immediately-removing jackets, and trying to remember where your neighbor-friends actually live so you don’t accidentally go to *that one house* to ask for a bathroom break…

Well, dammit, trunk-or-treat it is. We know it’s lame, we know it fails to fulfill the promise of halloween, but it’s EASY. And the only thing you miss out on, really, are the Jack O’Lanterns. #RealTalk? No one in your neighborhood does them this well anyway.

I'm a married, stay at home mother of 4, with a lot of crazy going on. Being a parent is so rewarding, but very exhausting! Ha! My husband is a musician/entrepreneur with a lot going on, so I manage most of the day to day and happen to find a lot of humor in all the chaos. If the choice is laugh or cry, I'll choose laugh every time. :)
