Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you all had a great halloween, and a safe one too! If you have been reading my posts here recently then you know that I blogged about taking the kids to a Halloween party tonight... we went to that and went trick or treating and they had soooo much fun!! I didn't get to film a video of all the goodies that I made for the party because my day was waaaay busier than what I thought it would be, but I did film a lil video afterwards so maybe I will load it tomorrow! Here are some pics from our night!
Some of the goodies and decorations.... the homemade confetti cupcakes that were delicious (my friend Stephanie made them) the witch hats that I made! Don't you just love my Hello Kitty camera case on the table? haha

The kiddos.... Michael was Batman but you can't see his costume here.... and Elizabeth was a ballerina (this worked out because it was really chilly out), I was bummed that her big cute headband was nowhere to be found though! Her lil ballet slippers tied and were tutu cute haha!

Baby's first Halloween!!! Daddy carried her the whole time we were trick or treating and she was sooo sleepy that one minute she was wide awake and the next she passed out on his shoulder snuggled up to him under her ballet blanket.... oh how she always melts my heart! Well it was a busy busy day and I have been up since before 5 a.m. and had only 2 and a 1/2 hrs of sleep so I am off to bed!

-ghoulish goodies and trick or treaters,

Goulish Goodies!!

Happy early Halloween everyone! This year we are taking the kids to a Halloween party and then trick or treating and I have been SUPER excited for the fun recipes I found online!! I plan on filming making them but since that won't be until Halloween and I wanted to share them with everyone before then so I am doing it this way first haha! These are all really easy recipes...I haven't decided yet which two I am going to do but I know I AM doing this first recipe!!

First up are these super cute and yummy looking Frankenstein Brownies!! What you'll need:
-One box of Betty Crocker or your favorite brand of brownie mix(you can even do it from scratch)
-Neon green and purple food coloring, or you can mix colors to get them (blue and red make purple)
-M&M's or another small candy for the eyes
-Black tube of decorative icing
-Candy corn
-Water, vegetable oil, and egg called for on box
-one cup vanilla frosting(has to be vanilla so you can dye it)
Bake them according to whatever recipe you are following, and then decorate just like the pics above! I will go into more detail in the video, if I do that here it would be WAAAAY too long haha!

Next up we have little WITCH HATS!
Aren't these super cute? They are easy to make too! What you need:
-Hershey's Kisses (unwrapped)
-One pack fudge striped shortbread cookies
-One tube of Red or Orange decorative icing
With the bottom side up place the kisses in the center (attach using the icing and use the icing to make your rim for the hats!

Now we have WIZARD HATS!!
You need:
-One box refrigerated pie crusts softened
-3 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Roll out your crust and cut into wedges, at the thicker end of the wedge place your chocolate chips and then roll the wedge upward to the point, leaving 4 inches unrolled. Mix your sugar and cinnamon together and then sprinkle over your wizard hats and bake them 11-14 minutes at 375 degrees.

Lastly we have delicious Jack 'O Lantern Quesadillas...
16 (8-inch) flour tortillas, preferably red or orange
  • 8 teaspoons vegetable oil

  • 4 cups grated pepper Jack cheese (12 oz.) or just cheddar(whichever kind you like)

  • Preheat broiler to high and place an oven rack about 5 inches from heat source. Spray your baking sheet so they don't stick. Place tortillas on a cutting board and use a sharp paring knife to trim away some of top, leaving a 1-inch "stem" so tortillas are shaped like pumpkins. Use a knife to cut two triangles for eyes and a crescent for a mouth into 8 tortillas.

  • Warm 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add a tortilla without eyes and mouth, sprinkle with a scant 1/2 cup cheese. Cover with cutout tortilla. Cook until underside is golden, 1 to 2 minutes, slide onto baking sheet, and repeat to make three more quesadillas.

  • Place baking sheet under broiler and broil until tops are golden. Slide onto a serving platter and loosely tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas and cheese. Serve immediately.


  • -Have fun eating all these delicious Goulish Goodies!

    Changing Name of This Blog?

    So I have been thinking for a while about changing the name of my blog...I would love to change the name of my youtube channel too but I don't think I can! However, I know that I can change the name on here haha! So since I rarely do any posts for fashion and it's mostly all beauty I thought about changing it to "Foxxy Beauty" or "Foxxy Fashion"... what do you guys think? Like I said I feel like "Foxxy Beauty" would be more suited! Since my last name is Fox I really want to incorporate it in there somehow so if you guys have any other suggestions PLEASE let me know!
    Thanks everyone!!

    Favorite New Accessory

    So as a mommy, with a baby small enough to still need a diaper bag... I introduce you to my new favorite accessory!!

    I LOVE this diaper bag!! I also really like that it doesn't really look like a diaper bag, so I can use it for whatever really! All of the baby stuff is concealed inside, so you don't have bottles and everything showing in the outside pockets like normal diaper bags! It even has little compartments for all your baby needs and fits soooo much more than a regualar diaper bag does. There is even a compartment labeled "Mommy's Things" haha too cute!!
    What I am really loving though is the houndstooth design and it doesn't feel like that cheap material of most diaper bags... plus I feel like houndstooth is definitely in for this season, so it fits right in!

    What are all of your favorite fall accessories? Do you have any houndstooth?

    Costume Party!!

    This past weekend was super super busy... atleast I managed to get a tutorial up before the weekend! We had a housewarming party to go to during the day Saturday and then a Halloween Costume/Bonfire Party that night. Then on Sunday we had to go pick up Elizabeth from spending the night with my mom, then drive an hour and a half home to get ready to go grocery shopping and then go pick up Michael!! Sadly nothing went as planned Sunday so now we have to do our grocery shopping today hopefully haha... This morning has went really well so far, the kids let me get some sleep and didn't wake up super early like usual haha. They just finished their breakfast and now I am typing this in the living room floor with the kids to one side of me and my phone going off on the other!! Can me say multi-tasking? lol. I got pics from this weekend and wanted to share them with all of you! I really enjoyed getting to dress up with my hubby since the first Halloween we were together we didn't get to dress up since he was scheduled to work and they let him off at the last minute, and then last year he was thousands of miles away from me it was special to be able to dress up with him and his costume was just too funny :)!! P.S. We got our costumes at Halloween Express, you can visit them online at if you don't have one near you, they have tons of different costumes!!

    So everything that I wanted to be they didn't have so I chose this...mainly because I LOVE the leg warmers haha..and the lil antennas!

    I just had to add the mustache to my bumble bee outfit haha! He said it started getting itchy...

    At the end of the night it ended up making a home on my cup, then my friend Delana added a face for it haha...I think it was suppose to be me lol!

    I missed these two oh so much!! If you have ever seen any of my wedding pics you might recognize them from my bridal party!!

    It was a fun night and thanks to the huge bonfire we weren't even cold outside at all!! Hope you all get to do something fun with friends this Halloween and are safe doing so!

    Sad Days

    It is almost two in the morning here and here I am typing this... today was definitely a sad day and tons of emotions ran over me as well as my family. If you follow me on twitter or read my blog then you know that my aunt passed away the other day. My heart goes out so very much to her husband(my uncle) and her immediate family. It was just over a year ago this past August that their son passed, then just a few months later just before Christmas my aunt lost her daddy(my grandaddy)... as a mother I just can't imagine what that must feel like, and it saddens me just the thought of it! So please keep them all in your prayers.
    Also, on the way to the funeral we passed a wreck and it was so terrible, the driver of the vehicle that was hit was killed, we only know this because as we were passing by the EMT was putting the white sheet over the driver... what a definitely sad day!! If you or someone you know has recently lost a loved one please keep them in your thoughts and prayers and just help them through the hard time in their life!!
