Candy Corn Cheese Pizza and Halloween Recap

Happy Halloween! 
Even the rain can't dampen our mood today!
We have had a fun filled weekend at the Zoo Boo, costume parties, and pumpkin patches and tonight we finally get to go trick or treating in our new neighborhood! I made this quick and easy Halloween themed pizza for my kiddos tonight before we went out. This extra cheesy pizza crust is covered in 2 types of cheese to resemble one of our favorite fall candies: candy corn! 

Here's our 2017 Halloween Recap...

 Pumpkin patch family portrait. 
 Sweet Stella Rose with her pumpkins. 
Our annual pumpkin painting happened last night and it was messy fun as always!
Ashton carved a Wonder Woman themed pumpkin this year {no surprise}!
 Halloween day free scary face pancakes from IHOP!
 We had fun attending lots of Halloween events this week and my little monsters
 loved the crafts {and candy too}. 
 You know me and Starbucks- we had to try the Zombie Frappuccino. It tasted like frozen apple juice and as you can see my kids didn't share all that well.  
 Our pumpkins are out and our new home is all decorated for Halloween visitors! 
Time to trick or treat! Even the rain can't stop a family of superheroes! 


  • 1 large pizza crust {I used Mama Mary's 12 inch}
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup pizza sauce, to taste
  •  1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded 
  • olive oil, for drizzling


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. 
  3. Spread on pizza sauce.
  4. Add shredded mozzarella cheese to the center making a circle. 
  5. Fill in the rest of the pizza with shredded cheddar cheese.
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until golden.
  7. Slice and serve. 

 Place pizza crust on a baking sheet and preheat oven to 425. 
 Drizzle with olive oil then spread on pizza sauce.
 Add shredded mozzarella cheese to the center making a circle. 
Fill in the rest of the pizza with shredded cheddar cheese.
 Bake for 7-10 minutes or until golden.
 Slice and serve. 
 My kids got a kick out of the candy corn inspired pizza and it was the
 perfect fast dinner to serve before a busy night trick or treating!
Happy Halloween from our superhero family!
Stay safe and have fun!

Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa #Choctoberfest

Today is the last day of #Choctoberfest and I decided last minute to make one more delicious chocolate filled recipe. After a long day out and about I was craving a hot drink and ready to snuggle up on the couch and watch a show. I knew hot cocoa was what I needed and when I saw the bag of peanut butter chips Davis Chocolate had sent me I knew I wanted to make a batch of homemade Peanut Butter Hot Cocoa to end our long day!

Moana Farewell Pool Party

We have finally settled into our new home in Texas and I am excited to share our fantastic Moana Farewell Pool Party with y'all. It was the perfect way to end the summer and say 'see ya later' to our friends in Louisiana. 
My two girls and I love everything Disney and their favorite princess is Moana so we decided to have a Moana themed party at our neighborhood pool. 
True to Louisiana weather, it rained lightly the day of the party but that did not stop us from celebrating with our friends! I was lucky enough to work with some of my favorite small shops on Etsy for this special party. Check out all the details and photos below along with the menu and links to order all the items. Please support these wonderful shops and always #shopsmall !

Blood Orange Spooky Slush Punch

This spooky slush punch is citrus flavored and blood red- perfect for serving at Halloween parties! It is made with new Organic Stevia In The Raw®, a zero-calorie sweetener that adds a delicious sweet taste to this fun drink! 
 As a fan of the original Sugar In The Raw products, I was excited to find new Organic Stevia In The Raw available at my local grocery store! I love the convenient packets for sweetening my morning cup of coffee or adding to my bowl of cereal or sliced fruit. Each packet is only three calories, but provides the sweetening equivalence of two teaspoons of sugar (which contains 32 calories)! 

I decided to try using Organic Stevia In The Raw for this punch recipe and the end result was perfectly sweetened and spooky- just like I wanted it!
