Halloween Treats: Band-Aids and Q-Tips

There's nothing like eating good ol bloody bandaids and waxy Q-tips... as long as they're made out of graham crackers, marshmallows, and frosting. These treats are prefect to make ahead of time for a halloween party or just to make with your children. Jacob (my nephew) thought the bandaids were hilarious! After he laughed at them, he ate them... all. I literally didn't get to try one but if they are kid approved then they must be good! 


For the bloody bandaids you will need:
Graham crackers
Marshmallow Creme 
Red Icing


Break up the graham crackers and set aside. 


Using a butter knife, apply marshmallow creme onto each graham cracker piece in the shape of a square.  


Now to make your bandaids bloody simply place a dot of red frosting over the marshmallow creme. Then use a tooth pick to swirl the frosting around. 
 That's it! So fast and easy! And awesome for halloween! 




For a bonus treat, I dipped left over tooth picks in marshmallow creme, added a mini marshmallow at each end, and dipped the marshmallows in peanut butter for...waxy used Q-tips!!!! hahaha! It's so gross yet delicious all at the same time.

POTW: IT'S OCTOBERRRRRR!!!!!

 Wow! I can't believe it's already October and I REALLY can't believe I haven't done a POTW (Pictures of the Week) post in about 3 years. I've been so busy prepping for our family Christmas party... yes, CHRISTMAS party. If you aren't familiar with our Christmas parties, check the tab CummingsChristmasParty on the left side of the blog. Anyway, just because I'm prepping for Christmas doesn't mean I still can't enjoy the fall season. Over the past couple of weeks I have managed to put together my fall tray and come up with the most AMAZING pumpkin spiced latte (recipe) EVER. Like... not to toot my own horn or anything BUT my pumpkin latte is way better than Starbucks. Yup, you heard that right. And guess what? I drink my own pumpkin latte almost everyday. Everyone loves to ask for my recipes but the thing is, I usually don't measure anything. I just experiment until it tastes good. However, I will try to come up with measurements to post because it is too darn good to not share. It tastes like a legit pumpkin pie. Yum yum yum! 
In this POTW you will see a ton of candles... because it's not fall if you aren't burning multiple candles, my fall tray, and coooookies! 

Do you decorate for fall?

Fair Days Are The Best Days

One of my favorite fall activities is going to the fair. Not for the rides, I couldn't care less about the rides... and quite frankly I don't trust them! I like the fair for the food, the fresh air, the smells, the music... not to mention the cute baby pigs! Last Sunday we went to the fair and I meant to post these pictures that night but I fell asleep pretty early. I've been so tired ever since I landed my 2nd (& big girl) job! Yep, I'm a counselor! 
Anyway, I decided I would just post the few pictures I did take today. Enjoy!




There's probably only two rides I really trust for Jacob to get on and this year... he was NOT having it. He was spooked and shook! It was weird because the last time he was at the fair he couldn't get enough of the rides. He even rode a rollercoaster!
Look at the picture below. 
He only got on this one ride and was freaking out. He kept looking around waiting for someone to save him. 
This right here...  is the face of regret. lol

Below is Kayla and Jacob watching a guy rock climb. I love rock climbing, what about you?



Because I didn't get a lot of footage from the fair this year, I figured I would share clips from last year's fair as well. I captured some really cute moments of Jacob enjoying the rides as well as the goats and pigs. 








What is your favorite fair treat? I think fried oreos might be my new favorite. I'm going to try to recreate them at home. 

Drop some comments. I love interacting with you all.

If you want to know how to make this tasty treat then keep on reading!

Happy 4th of July

Happy Fourth of July to those who celebrate it. How are you spending your day? I'm literally doing nothing but homework this afternoon. Whomp Whomp Whomp. 

Question of the day: What's your favorite thing about the 4th of July (the food, fireworks, cookouts, parties...?) 

By the way, here's Jacob drinking this milkshake I made. I was planning on sharing the recipe but it didn't turn out the way I had planned. However, I do have a Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee recipe that I am planning to share. It's so good.
