We are getting started on our 30 Days of Halloween Fun Calendar this week! October really snuck up on me, so I am trying to jump right in now!

Earlier this week, at Target, I grabbed some Halloween treats to put together a Halloween Snack Platter. I am hoping we carve out some time this weekend to watch a Halloween movie and eat all the yummy Halloween treats.

How cute are these Halloween Iced Animal Cookies? There are some many fun Halloween treats out there!

For a really fun idea, I spotted this Mini Skull Waffle Maker. We have the Mini Pumpkin Waffle Maker that I use all the time. But, this Waffle Maker would be so fun too! I could see using it to put together a fun Halloween Breakfast.

Two // Advent Calendar for Kids

Speaking of calendars, when I was at Target, I noticed the Christmas Advent Calendar display! It is a good time to get an advent calendar for your kids as they do tend to sell out.

My kids have always loved when I have gotten Advent Calendars that fit with their interests whether it is a Lego one or a candy calendar! I spotted a few new themes including a Pokemon ‘Calendar and a Minecraft themed advent calendar.

Three // Fall Target Decor Inspiration

I might as well called this Friday Favorites, everything I found at Target this week. But, I happened to be at a different Target than my usual location and everything looked so good. The Target home section was so much bigger than my local store! I spotted so many things I wanted to bring home.

This Antique Metal Tray was gorgeous! I am still thinking about it which means I might need to find a spot for it in my house.

Love this Raffia pumpkin  especially for a coasty or beach style home.

I got a couple of these blankets a few weeks ago and I just love how they look and feel. I feel motivated to make my bed with this soft, pretty fall blanket on the bed.

This pretty plaid table runner would be so pretty for a Thanksgiving dinner!
