Walmart Halloween Challenge 2017

Hey Caf-Fiends!

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Halloween and all things spooky as evident by my past Spooky Sunday posts (which are making a comeback!).

I was recently challenged to find some Halloween essentials in Wal-Mart’s Halloween section for under $30.00. I have to say that I found some great costume pieces for my costume (can you guess who I’ll be?). I also found a great Halloween countdown calendar which I am obsessed with!

If I could decorate my apartment in Halloween decor all year around and get away with it, I totally would. 🙂

Anyway, check out the video below and let me know in the comments which Halloween decoration is your favorite!

Namaste For Some Stellar Coffee

Chelsea Gros Boudreaux, a Lake Charles native, met Carl Boudreaux, a Texan native, in high school. While they had classes together, it wasn’t until after high school that they officially met through mutual friends– a year later the two were married.

Hooking up. That seems like all people have time for and dating apps like Tinder, OkCupid, etc. are keeping the hookup culture alive. What ever happened to dating? To meet cutes? To locking eyes with strangers across the room and to someone asking you out?. Picking you up and handing you flowers?  Everything in today’s society is too fast paced. We all suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to dating and are constantly looking for the next best thing.

We need to slow it down. We need to know that we can still date without feeling like we have to take our clothes off.
