5 for Friday [Oct. 17]

This week was such a breath of fresh air...
I was able to bake, take my small guy to the Children's Museum with neighborhood friends, shop for and sell clothes. That's all on top of finishing up a couple of products for my TPT store all in preparation for Halloween!
* Come back this weekend to see these products detailed and listed on TPT!
Ultimate Death by Chocolate Brownie Cake 
Really, the title itself makes me want to dive face first into this mound of deliciousness! I started the week off right by snooping around on my Pinterest food wall and finding this gem. My photo might not do it the justice it truly deserves, so go check out the Baby Gizmo blog recipe.

And since I was already at it, I whipped this yummy batch up too. It made a TON, so the neighbors were "gifted" some.  Check out the recipe on Your Cup of Cake's blog

 Two Boos!
Does your neighborhood participate in the Boo-ing fun? Two of my previous schools did, but I've never lived in a neighborhood that has. Until now...
Yes, I didn't get my sign up fast enough and got double Boo-ed in the same night. So, I had to double Boo to keep the fun going. What are some things you like to include in your Boo treats? 
Time to Purge
Over the past few weeks, I've been purging the closets for a BIG women's consignment sale that is occurring here in my town this week(end). 
I was able to pre-shop the sale last night (since I contributed as a consigner) and although I didn't refill my closest, I definitely am not going to make any money. And that's A-Okay with me! 
If you don't like the idea of physically going to a consignment sale, but LOVE bargains, you should try ThredUp
Online consignment that makes bargain shopping a ship them your old stuff, in a bag they provide, and shop from the comfort of your own couch!
Did you know that this week is 1/2 off Week at my TPT store
(for these 3 products)
Quite a few teachers have already snagged these BIG packs for 1/2 the price, but the sale is on until TOMORROW night (Oct. 18th). Go here to learn more or here to grab them before they return to full price. 

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Your goodies look so yummy! I haven't started my fall baking yet but I'm getting in the mood for it.

    Your Thread Up site reminds me of Twice. I just discovered this shop last week and I can't wait to shop from here. I love a good bargain.

  2. First of all, what a darling darling blog you have. And I love your name...mine would be the Take Home Teacher who then brings it all back untouched.... Anyway, I used to be addicted to consignment...both as a seller and buyer. I will check out Thread Up right now!

      ThredUp is a great site...I have to be careful not to get sucked in.
