Halloween "Mummy Wrap Race" Game

My Boys love Halloween!
Here's a simple, hilarious game you can play with your little spookies.
 All you need is toilet paper and some volunteers.
Teams of 2 work best.
 
The object of the game is to wrap your "mummy" first.
 
The Boys and their cousins were cracking up the whole time!
 
Breaking out was just as fun!
 
"Are you my mummy?"

HAPPY SUNDAY: Roots & Wings

When I was in high school, we sang a song called "Roots and Wings" in choir.
This print reminded me of the song.
I love the message it relays: that those who have gone before us have made life possible.
It's up to us to ensure that those who follow will be equally blessed to know who they are
and who they can become.

Nail Polish Shoe Redo

Here's a simple and inexpensive way to redo a well-worn pair of shoes with nail polish!
 I LOVE SHOES!
I know I 've said that before, but truth is truth.
 
This pair of heels is one of my absolute favorites.
I dig their retro/40's/pin-up vibe!
 
The problem?
I have worn them out.

Exhibit A: 
Waaaaaaaaaa!!!!!
 
Well, I had to do something about it!
I saw some nail polish at the store and thought,
"That's the same color as my shoes I can't wear any more. . . . . ."
LIGHT BULB!!
  
I started by peeling and scraping off the tattered heel over-lay.
 
Then I got out my polish!
This particular, shoe-saving color is from Carrie Underwood's Collection from Nicole by O.P.I.
It's called Backstage Pass {Product Code: NIU07}.
 
I taped off the edges, upper and lower, with regular masking tape
and started to paint with the nail polish.
 
I found that I had to work rather quickly because it dried so easily.
I recommend doing a few coats, letting it dry for 30 minutes between coats.
I let them dry over-night before removing the tape.
 
 Good as new and ready to rock! Woo-hoo!!
