Hi friends – it’s been a month.
Let’s start with the 👎 parts and then get to the positives. We spent most of this month packing up our apartment, shopping, building furniture, and moving. Somewhere in the middle I hurt my back (from too much packing I guess?) and was essentially useless on move day. It’s lame…herniated disk pinching a nerve, blah blah. Seeing a chiropractor a couple days a week and making some slow progress from dreadful pain to tolerable pain.
On to the good stuff…our new apartment is a lovely two bedroom which means I’ll have a true office space for working from home. Plus our unit has this beautiful private rooftop space that we’ll basically live at all summer long. There’s still lots of unpacking to do, but it’s exciting. We also celebrated my nieces first birthday with a small get-together and I’m still so darn proud of this cake. My inspo came from Erin Bakes. How cute is it?!
The cake itself is a simple boxed funfetti (the best). But the ghosts are where the real fun is. I made them using white candy melts formed using a spoon. I tried using a paint brush, but found the spoon so much easier. (You can find candy melts on Amazon or at Michaels). The eyes are black round sprinkles and the mouth is half of a black jellybean. It was surprisingly easy!
I’m spending my morning with a salted caramel latte and Hocus Pocus. Halloween may look different this year, but I hope you can still enjoy something fun today. We have some apartment stuff to tend to, but hopefully we’ll find time to carve a pumpkin this afternoon.
And if you have more candy than you know what to do with, give this leftover halloween candy pie a try.
Happy Halloween 🎃
