Cadbury Screme Eggs

We love Halloween in 
The Dollhouse.
All the spooky decor, costumes, and CANDY!!
We are all guilty of having huge 
sweet tooth's here.

My husband starts buying Cadbury eggs
the day they come out.
Then all through out Easter, they
are his favorite.
He usually has a whole hidden
stash of Cadbury eggs in the refrigerator.

Naturally being a lover of chocolate and all 
things spooky.
Once I heard about the Screme Eggs 
I wanted to get my hands on some.
Mentioned them to the Hubby, 
next thing I knew we were in the
car on the way to the store to get some.
They had a few boxes left we bought 
one that had about 10 in it.
Hubby was excited because this meant
he wouldn't have to wait till 
Easter to get his favorite treat.

I love the wrapping!
It is so awesome they went with a light
purple and lime green instead of just
orange and black.

Same delicious Cadbury chocolate.
I think it would have been really spooky
if they put a skull or creepy
face on the egg.

The filling was good.
I don't regularly like the filling part.
But it was sweet but not over sweet.
The green was mostly for looks
didn't get a lime flavor or anything.

This was really a ghoultastic egg.
I hope they keep coming out with spooky eggs.
Brain eggs and fill them with jelly.
Oh my that would be amazing.

I am excited for the all spooky snacks this year.

And once all the Halloween candy 
goes on discount we  stock up. 
The Screme Eggs will be on the list of must haves!
They are just that Ghoulllllllld.

Oogieloves Surprise

We are really excited about the 
new Oogieloves movie
The Big Balloon Adventure.
Goobie, Zoozie, and Toofie
are searching all through Lovelyloveville for
 5 magical gold balloons,
in time for their friends birthday.
They use creative thinking, teamwork and
enthusiasm to find these special balloons.
With some help of friends along the way.

What I am really excited about is
a movie I don't have to 
worry about the language or
being to violent for the pee wee's.
It is a true G rated movie.
Fun filled and uniquely interactive.
I know my kids are going to 
love all the songs. 
They will be up and dancing!

Your three main characters are cute and
each have their own personality traits.

Even a few friends you might recognize.
Toni Braxton as Rosalie Rosebud
Christopher Loyd as Lero Sombrero
Jamie Pressly as Lola Sombrero
Chazz Palminteri as Milky Marvin
Cary Elwes as Bobby Wobbly

As part of the promotion for The Oogieloves new movie
they had a prize pack give away.

I knew once I saw this tent I had 
to get it for the pee wee's.
Thinking of all the hours of
 fun they would have in it.
Thanks to Jenn's RAQ I was 
chosen as the winner of her giveaway.
The excitement was through the roof.
Little guys birthday was right around the corner.
This was going to be a  AWESOME present!

We sent up the tent!
The mighty M had a big Oogieloves surprise
waiting for him in the playroom.

They both squealed with excitement.
And pretty much were playing in it all day.
It made me happy that they loved it so much.
It was a big hit at the birthday party.

I am super impressed with the quality of the tent to.
Or should I say cubes and tubes.
It's made with a light plastic,
much better then that cloth fabric.
Which means it will hold up much better.
We are going to keep it in the play room 
but the kids do get rough sometimes.
And as you can see it is huge!
Which I think is AWESOME!
Little guy has been bringing his toys in there
and playing the day away.
I also love that there is two cubes so if
we wanted to we could put on in 
each of the kids rooms.
It has  colorful pictures of 
the characters on all of the sides.

The prize pack also came with two 
beach balls that has turned into a lot of fun.
We haven't put the Oogieloves mobile yet ,
we are saving it for a rainy day.

I am still excited that I was chosen for this.
It is something the kids will play
 with for a very long time.
It just makes me so happy.

Thank you Jenn from Jenn's RAQ

You made my little guys birthday EXTRA 
special this year!

We have not seen The Oogieloves movie yet
but it is in theater and we will be sure to see it
when it comes out on dvd..
(We can't do the movies little guy just can't sit still)

Frankie Stein Costume - Anytime Costumes

We love Monster High in The Dollhouse.
I was beyond excited when I saw the 
Monster High costumes.
I won a giveaway for a $25.00 certificate
I was excited and this was perfect timing
cause Miss Blue was about to turn 7.
The Frankie Stein costume was going
 to be a perfect present!
Sadly though I never got my code or heard
back from the blogger who's giveaway I won.
Months passed and Halloween is approaching.
I wrote Anytime Costumes asking them about my code.
They were very nice , verified a few things and
they sent a code to me.
I have to say that was amazing costumer service.
It took but a day for they to get back to me and
get it all resolved.

Now this was super exciting cause this meant 
Blue was going to get her Frankie Stein costume
in time for Halloween! YAY!!!!

Now I knew we were going to love it..
But oh my I LOVE this costume.

It has a zipper!!!
This is huge since every other costume
I have ever seen always has those little
Velcro button things.
It is a actual dress with a zipper.

It has fishnet poofy sleeves and attached sleevelets.
The fabric of the dress has that silky feel to it.

Also attached is a polka dot Monster High tie.
I kinda wish that this was detachable so 
she could wear it on other things cause
it is just to cute.

The belt is a separate piece.
Attaches with Velcro on the side.
The lighting bolt is glittery and will be staying wrapped
till Halloween!

Also came with a stitched up pair
of tights.
These are so awesome.
I told Blue I was going to steal them!

Now you all know how sassy Miss Blue is
well once she put this costume on her sassy
level went through the roof.
Doesn't she just look adorable!

I am so excited they made them actual dresses.
They are good quality and made well.
She even asked me if she could wear it for picture day.
And well if she wanted to she could cause it is that nice.
I want to get her the whole set now.
She loves her Monster High dolls so much.
And now she is going to get to be one for 

They have this costume for adults to..

 I am kinda tempted to get the Draculara for me
then we both can be Monster High dolls.

A big THANK YOU to the people @ Anytime Costumes.
My little girl is going to have a FREAKY FABULOUS 
Halloween all because you ROCK!!!!

If you love Monster High as much as we do ..
This would be the perfect costume for you!
