LOVING THE DOTS FOR HALLOWEEN!

It's an exciting Friday night here at "The Roost!" We are watching the Rangers-Yankees game...GO RANGERS!!! AND, we are enjoying a little bit of this 'preppy Halloween cake'. Personalize those cakes, yes ma'am!!!
We are keeping it comfy and cozy tonight...after dinner, I set up the bar for dessert and pumpkin spice lattes...or PSL's as we call them on Twitter!
Dots are hot y'all!!! The little dishes and mugs are from HomeGoods...love them!

You've been boo'd...yes ma'am you have!!!

'Dotted' my pumpkin stalk...
Serving dessert and coffee...wearing my 'Trick or Treat' hostess apron, from HomeGoods.

Even Miss Coco is laid back tonight watching the baseball game...she did NOT want to be bothered! She even pulled out the black and white gingham top knot bow she was wearing!

I want to share some photos with y'all of a darling little girl named Emily. Little Miss Emily is 3 years old and her daddy is serving our Country in Iraq. A little while back, I offered a giveaway of the same apron (mini size) I'm wearing tonight to one of my readers. Well, Mimi at My Green Acre won this apron and wanted to give it to little Emily. Here is Miss Emily modeling her little 'Trick or Treat' apron...so full of life, with a beautiful smile!

Here's Mimi (wearing a Halloween apron herself and showcasing her darlin' Arthur Court rabbit cannister...with the ahem, gingham ribbon bow) and Little Miss Emily baking cookies to send to Emily's daddy in Iraq!

Bless her little heart...look at her, isn't she just precious?!!!

Miss Emily, you are adorable and I know your daddy will love receiving cookies from his darlin' little girl!!!
Well, I'm off to finish watching the game...early day tomorrow. Roadtrip y'all!!!

Thank you for visiting with me and have a wonderful Autumn weekend!

Hi Miss Janice,
Miss Emily is a little doll and the apron was just perfect for her. I know her daddy will love the cookies. I hope your team does well tonight and that you stay safe on your road trip tomorrow. The PSL's sound yummy!

You and Emily look so cute in your matching aprons! She was so excited that about making the cookies and her new apron. Thanks again so much for the give-away! Love the cake and your polka-dots. I must make one of those cute white witch pumpkins!
