Friday Faves for Fall

It's FRIDAY!!!  Enough said.

Let's get right to this, shall we??  I'm linking up again with my girl Darci and some other fantastic ladies for the weekly Five on Friday!

Here's what I'm crushing on this week for any and all things Fall/Halloween related!

I don't know about y'all, but I'm always looking for Holiday themed banners to hang on my mantle for each specific holiday or event...there's just something about banners that make me happy, and this one is no exception!  I found this "Trick or Treat" banner FREE download on Pinterest yesterday and you better believe I immediately downloaded it and printed that bad boy up.  Now all I have left to do is hang it.  Easy Peasy!  Isn't it adorable??

If you are anything like me, you like giving your friends, family, host/hostesses of parties, teachers, etc. gifts every once and awhile to let them know that they are appreciated.  The gift doesn't ever have to be big, but it's even better if it's homemade!  Enter this little gem!  How simple, yet adorable and thoughtful would this Fall Cookie in a jar be as a gift?  I've already printed off the recipe, and my goal is to assemble a couple of these jars this weekend!  Again, this printable and recipe is FREE!

Puppy chow and I have a love-hate relationship.  Why's that, you ask??  Well I absolutely love me some puppy chow.  In fact I've never met a puppy chow that I haven't liked.  Hence the reason why I also hate it...I can't stop myself from eating it by the handfuls!!  That's why, when I found this Halloween Puppy Chow I knew I was in trouble!  It is utterly super easy to whip up, which means I've already made two batches since the first day of October.  That's less than two weeks ago, y'all.  See, I told you I have a problem!

Having a kiddo in school now means one thing come Halloween:  Costume Parties and oodles of candy.  I've always been that Mom that wants their child's gift to stand out among the hundreds of other pieces of candy in the bunch.  That's where these little gems come in!  These (again FREE) Halloween Party Circle printables are the perfect personal touch to add to Madden's treat bags for his friends!  So simple, yet definitely will make a statement with his classmates their parents. :)

Last but certainly not least, I leave you with this little throwback to Halloween 2012.  My little nugget Madden was the cutest little punkin I ever did see!  But, mom of the year over here, this is the only picture I got of him in his costume last year!!  #fail.  This year, I WILL take at least 100!  

That's all I have for you lovelies today!  I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend!!

Until next time...
