Things I'm Lovin' Friday

So I've been a slacker and haven't posted the things I'm lovin' in a couple of weeks (oops).
For those of you who can't wait until Fridays just so that you can read about what I'm lovin'...

*crickets chirrping*

Anyhoo...I apologize.

I have decided that I won't do a post every single week.  Some weeks I feel like I am grabbing straws trying to find something that I'm lovin that I think you guys would like to read about.  So I will only post when I think the thing(s) is absolutely FABULOUS! 

I am also toying with the idea of posting things that I am lovin' from around Bloggyland.  And I may even make a button!  :-D Because seriously who wants to hear about me all the time.  I know I get tired of me. Opinions?  Anyone want to volunteer to be featured?  I may feature a craft or an entire blog...not sure yet.

With that all being said, I have something that I (ahem) did that I'm lovin' BUT I got the idea from a uber famous blogger, Dana at MADE.  I'm sure you all have heard of her and are followers of her fabulous blog. 

When I saw this post I just knew I had to copy it. 

It is SO COOL!!

I haven't just been slacking on these posts but also on my Halloween Decor.
So...I figured this would be a simple way to decorate that would make a big impact and hopefully make up for my major procrastination.  So far so good.

Here is my version of Dana's bats:

I cut about 60 of them out and put them up when my oldest was at school so that I could surprise her when we got home.  I just used scotch tape to stick them up.  We've had a few casualties but I just stick them back up. 

This craft was so easy you could do it tonight and have decorations for Halloween weekend. 

Last minute Halloween party decorations anyone? 

You could also put them outside like Dana did but make sure you use duct tape. I decided to stick to the inside.

And here they are at night...

So there you have it, things I'm Lovin' Friday.

Today we are going to Natalie's preschool for their Fall Festival.  Natalie is going to be a Ballerina and Lily is Nemo.  I hope to get pictures of them in their costumes up soon.  Lily is now walking "fulltime" so when she waddles her little Nemo fintail swishes back and's so cute. 

Maybe I will post a video of the cuteness!?

Have a safe and Spook-tacular Halloween weekend!
