No Tricks... Just a Treat!

Happy Halloween Everyone!!!


Are you ready for Trick-or-treating?
Well it seems like we have started cold and flu season off with a bang this year~
my daughter isn't feeling good and she and her good friends aren't feeling trick or treating this year. 
 :( 
Instead, she plans to watch a Ghost Adventures marathon
 and trick or treat for candy from the bowl in the kitchen
It's okay with me but I can't help feeling a little sad that this is the first time since
Ryan was born  (20 years ago)  that we aren't out trick or treating.  :(   

My boys are talking about getting together with a few friends~ 
so it looks like it will be a quiet night for the girls at home.
What better time to put up a little TREAT for French Country Cottage readers!
:) 
 I shared a peek at the new paint and drapes that my daughters room got as part of a mini room makeover with the LCI network. 
You can find it here if you missed it.


I actually worked on more than one makeover... but not ready to share that one just yet.
giveaway closed.

  1. I am trick or treating from the candy bowl, too! Hope you feel better soon. Not sure if I got this new calculator thingie right...If I could redo a room it would be my living room!

    Happy Halloween!
