Worm Dirt Pudding Cup Recipe | Halloween Desserts

 This is probably my all time favorite / most easy (so far) Halloween dessert to make and I thought it would great to share it with all of you!

With Halloween just two weeks away, were started to place the final touches on our costumes or maybe some of us are still  trying to figure out what to be haha. I know it can be tricky to figure out what treat to bring to those Halloween parties but still add a touch of spooky/ gross theme to them am I right? Well with this spooky treat the ingredients are few and you don't even need to get your hands dirty! Score!

Ingredients:

  • Oreo's (Crushed)
  • Chocolate Pudding
  • Sour worms and Bone Candy

Additional Item
  • You can use the containers the pudding came in but I bought plastic cups from the dollar store
Directions:
Gather your puddings cup and start opening each one, with a spoon start scooping out the pudding and transfer it into your plastic cup. Then in a separate clear bag, place your oreo cookies inside. Close your clear bag, making sure it shut tightly and with a rolling pin (meat mallet or hammer lol) start crushing your cookie. At the end your cookie should be very fine and in tiny pieces.
Layer the top of your pudding with whats going to be your dirt and evenly spread it, making sure the oreo aka dirt isn't showing the pudding.

 Now for worm and bone decorations! This really has no direction, place your bones and worms however you please, I've placed my worms like they were coming up from the ground and one the side and did the same with my bones. That's it! How simple is this treat, your guest will love it, especially the kids! It's so delicious and is perfect for a last minute Halloween dessert!

(Also can you tell mason loved this treat?!)
Can't wait to share more holiday treats and crafts with you all, it truly is my favorite thing about this time of year!

Happy Halloween!

Finding the perfect Mattress for your family & friends-with Viola Box Mattress

One of the best parts of having your own apartment or house is getting to decorate, am I right? But in all seriousness it is truly one of the best things I love to do, even ask my husband and my card haha. I live for shopping the latest home decor styles and figuring out what textures and palettes I want each room to have.

Ever since buying our house we have had several family and friends coming over and staying with us for vacation. I love having them over and creating these memories in our home, and because we enjoy having visitors, we want to make sure our company feels at home. So Rex and I recently started creating the perfect guest room, and I have loved every minute of it! It all started with finding the perfect mattress we wanted our guests to sleep on. I think this is very important to do! The type of mattress you get plays a lot into how you will sleep at night. Some like it soft and cushioned (like me) and others like it firm (like husband). So why not get a mattress that provides support and comfort?

Since becoming a mom, my life can be busy at times, and that's completely okay with me , but I always try to find the most convenient of things, and with finding a mattress I wanted to see if  I could find one that not only was good but I could trust that when delivered I wasn't going to be skeptical about not trying it out first. So when we decided to go with a Viola Box Mattress, we were both surprised! I was skeptical at first because we didn't try it first and well it came in a box. I am happy to report that I was wrong and fully impressed by everything!
See our unboxing below!

We went with a medium firm twin mattress and are beyond impressed with it! The unpacking was simple and fun to watch, as we saw the mattress inflate it self. It wasn't bulky or difficult to roll out but the complete opposite. It had the fresh new mattress smell and when we laid on it, it was like laying on the fluffiest cloud! We literally laid on it for a while; I truly wished we had known about Viola Box before we got our mattress because its that soft and comfortable! Once we were done soaking in our new mattress, it was time to finish the other exciting half, decorating the guest bedroom!

 We assembled our bed frame and then got tot work on the decor which I had so much fun doing. I wanted it to be very welcoming so that when our guest came and stayed with us, they would feel right at home. We loved seeing warm pieces, adding nature into the room; and of course I had to take a nap on it and completely loved it so you I cant wait to hear what our family and friends thought of our new mattress; what I look forward to the most!


Let's be honest we are all looking forward to a great mattress, one that is affordable, easy to unpackage, and will give us the best night sleep we have ever gotten, and Viola Box Mattress will give you that and more! Below I have attached their website so you can find more information and I would love to hear if you have their mattress and what you think! Hope you love it as much as we do!

Staying Refreshed/Hydrated with Welch's Grape Coconut Juice



 There are days where I want to getaway with the family and travel to a tropical destination and enjoy the beach, lay in the sun, and enjoy a nice refreshing drink. Anyone else?

Since working out for almost a month and a half I have been more health cautious of what I put into my body.  I've come to remember that it's so important to know what you put into your body, so I'm making sure that what I'm drinking is keeping me and my little family hydrated and filled with nutritious ingredients!

You've all heard of Welch's right, and have probably even had it in your fridge at moment. Well did you know that Welch's drinks are made with 100% juice, that includes the seeds, skin, everything! It's made right here in the USA and the with over 900 farmers, they carefully grow, make, and take care of what they grow so that what you drink is uniquely yummy and meets your taste buds needs. So it will be even more exciting when I tell you that they just released a brand new product that is extremely delicious!


Say hello to to Welch's Juice with Coconut water! Now before you think twice, keep reading, I'll tell you why this is the new IT drink to try for several reasons! If you you've been skeptical about coconut water, don't worry I have been too. I always thought it would taste gross and to be honest I didn't educate myself on the health benefits it has. But let me tell you that Welch's New Juice with Coconut Water tastes amazing! Welch's has 30% less sugar and coconut water which has naturally less sugar so can you imagen how healthy that drink is?!

Since I was little I have always been used to watering down my drink because the drink itself was very sugary and tasted way too sweet; and I love that I don't have to do this what Welch's Juice with Coconut Water. So to my momma's out theres no need to water down your child's drink, instead water up on their new drink with Coconut water!


I loved trying their Tropical Berry Grape and White Grape Mango, which made me feel like I was in paradise! Guys this drink not only has 30% less sugar but also has no artificial sweetener, 100 calories per serving, no artificial flavors added, and has 2 servings of fruit in every 8oz glass.The  nutritiousness value and delicious taste in Welch's Juice with Coconut Water is sold in stores nationwide and is something you definitely want to try!
