Pumpkin Carving

Last night was all about a return to childhood (because in spite of what you might assume, one does NOT need to have kids - or even access to kids - in order to enjoy childlike delights!) as Peter and I spent a fun evening with a friend, her carving kit, and four unsuspecting pumpkins. ...more

A Ninja in a Shopping Bag

When I asked Liam what he was going to be for Halloween this year he proudly pronounced “a Fairway bag!” Clearly I have been dragging this child grocery shopping too much. Not that it is a bad thing; I think it's important our kids have a vote in some of the food we buy....more

Top 5 Best and Worst Candies for Halloween

I think I’ve just about aged out of the period in my life where I’m deciding what I have to be for Halloween and, instead, am deciding how close to Halloween it’s appropriate to start buying candy in bulk “for the kids who might come to our door to trick or treat.”   Also, the other day some co-workers started laying down bets that I won’t be able to “say no to free food and/or candy” three months or less prior to my wedding, as I said I would.  At first I was offended and then I was quietly proud that I’m known for something...more

The 5 Best Bosses to Dress Up As on Halloween

As the CEO of my own company, it’s nice to be able to switch it up on Halloween each year and dress up in an outfit that’s less like a boss and more like a superhero. But while this is my own personal preference, I know there are plenty of infamous bosses, both on TV and in the movies, who have an incredible sense of style that’s easy to emulate and instantly recognizable. If you’re still looking for a last minute costume for the office, try dressing up as one of these fearless (and in some cases, fearsome) leaders!Leslie Knope (Parks and Recreation)...more
