Pinterest is My Frenemy

First let me say, "I've missed you".  Seriously, I have. It's been weird taking this long of a break from my blog-baby. There is a bunch of stuff going on in my life that I am not sure I can write about yet.  Most of it good, don't worry :)

I did sign up to do nanammoalslepo or something like that which means that I have agreed to write EVERY SINGLE DAY OF NOVEMBER. I think it's like giving myself a kick in the ass. I am game if you promise to leave me a comment every once in awhile so I know that I still have followers.

Because I am an overachiever, I have decided to start a day early!

Halloween in an elementary school is not as hyped as it once once because there are lots of rules.  No weapons with costumes, baked goods needing to come from a store, not your kitchen and you can't randomly hand out candy. That being said, there were some extremely creative parents this year and I totally blame Pinterest. Where else would they have come up with this stuff?

How cute and simple is this? Little clementine pumpkins!

Earlier this week, one kindergartner asked me to peel her clementine and her dad had drawn a jack-o-lantern face on the skin. Hysterical AND easy!!

In the pre-school today, one mom made mini jack-o-lantern fruit bowls out of orange peels. Seriously, how long did it take to get the oranges out of the skin without it ripping??

In 3rd grade, a mom who is an artist, (and in my opinion should be in the cookie business) made these cookies for the students to take home. See, you cannot eat homemade treats in the elementary school, but if you take them home, you can let your parents decide if you can eat them.

Then, as I wandered through a 1st grade room today, I ran into these little mice. Bananas on sticks, rolled in coconut with raisin and chocolate chip accouterments.

Obviously, I need to step it up a notch and look at my Pinterest account more often. I can't wait to see what they(heehee, I) come up with in December!

Awesome tips for next year. Oh wait, they stop having parties after 5th grade, never mind. Hang on, it's not like against the rules to still have fun right?!? See, I really missed you, making me think and everything :)

Those are impressive! :) I need to find some holiday stuff too.

I've been in a blogging slump too! Hoping NaBloPoMo get me out of it.

Welcome back. I signed up, too, so we can kick each other in the rear! :)

Going to BlogHer 2014? I know it's early, but I can finally go again, so I'm excited.

Looking foward to hearing about your goings-on!

Have a great weekend.
