Scooby Doo Costume - It's That Time of Year Again!

Once September hits, we Arizonans start emerging from our air-conditioned caves , I mean homes and start thinking about all things fall!  For me, that includes one of my favorite holidays, Halloween!

My family are big Scooby Doo fans, so when I asked my son what he wanted to be for Halloween.. well, you guessed it!  So I went to Costume SuperCenter and searched around, and look what I found!  Yep, our friend Shaggy!

So, I ordered it and waited eagerly for it to get here!  It came very quickly and when I showed my son the package the first thing he said was "Zoinks!"  Funny kid!

So, we opened the package and my son tried it on!  It's a great costume!  I loved the shirt and pants, but my favorite was the little scraggly soul patch beard that was included!  Okay, I may need to take more time to style the wig, but it's a start!
He told me this is him heading off to find some food, then solve a mystery!

Well, now the Scooby Doo theme has grown!  I think it will be a family themed costume year!  My daughter wants to be Daphne, I guess I'll be Velma, and of course, my husband will be Scooby Doo!  So, it's back to Costume SuperCenter.  If you're interested, you can follow them here.  They have so many great costumes, it's really hard to pick just one!

Hurry up Halloween and get here!  Now, if you'll excuse me I'm off to make some pumpkin bread!  Zoinks!

Cinnamon Raisin, Cranberry, and Pistachio.. Oh My!

This is a little bit of a different school year for me. I'm still making school lunches every school day, but now only one.  My daughter is off to college.  Doesn't mean I don't think about what she's eating, just means I'm not the one in charge any more.

So, in my son's lunch I like to pack healthy, yet yummy snacks!  Enter ThinAddictives!  I love these things!

What are they, you ask? 

  They are easy to take on-the go crunchy almond thin cookies! They are  made with real, wholesome ingredients and come in  a variety of flavors, including Pistachio, Cranberry and Cinnamon Raisin.  They average around a 100-calories or less and are made with real ingredients, including fruit and California almonds. They are low-fat, low-carb and contain 3 grams of protein per serving.

How do they taste, you ask?  I think they are delicious!  They are just the right amount of crunchy and sweet.  I've tried several flavors, and my favorites are Cranberry.  Unless I'm eating Cinnamon Raisin, then that's my favorite.  But wait... if I'm eating Pistachio, that's my favorite.  I just can't decide.

These are great to put in my son's lunches!  There's just one problem... I keep eating them!  So I solved it, a box for him, a box of me!

So, what about my daughter at college, you ask?  Well, let's just say a nice big stash of ThinAddictives went to college with her!  Just because she's off to college and on her own, doesn't mean she still isn't my little girl!
