We're checking another item off the Fall Bucket List today!
I bought Halloween candy!
The candy is my favorite part of Halloween. I loved Halloween as a kid, because it was fun to dress up! You got to pretend to be anything you wanted to be! I wish I had old photos, but I was an angel (obviously! ok...jk) a 50's girl in a poodle skirt and Cinderella, to name a few.
On the flip side, I don't tolerate the scary part of Halloween so well. Count me out for Haunted Houses or Haunted Corn Mazes or Haunted Hayrides. This girl HATES to be scared. People in creepy masks, no thanks!
So, the candy is the redeeming quality for me as an adult! And I know I should be smarter and follow the advice of so many of you smart people out there and only buy candy you DON'T like.
I do the opposite.
I buy all the candy as early as possible and eat it all month long. And then I usually have to replace a bag a few days before Halloween. I share with the rest of the family. Some of it, anyway! #givemeallthesnickers #andkitkats #andtwix
This was my first time this season getting some Halloween Candy with my very dear friend and sweet coworker, Shauna! We met in August at Target for work (I know, best job ever!), and we thought we'd pick some up.
Here we are with some organic candy I bought! I used it to fill our Halloween "advent" calendar.

And then, last month on our epic trip to Sam's Club, we bought the rest. Halloween is a big deal in our neighborhood, and we get A LOT of kids!! I doubt any of this will be left.
And finally, we participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project. We have a sweet friend of ours who has Celiac Disease. Ever since she was diagnosed (and I heard the struggles from her mom about the challenges they face), we have participated. In essence, you display a teal pumpkin on your porch on Halloween and kids (and their parents) know they can get a non-food treat so that the kids with allergies aren't left out. I let kids pick between candy and any one of these "treats."
