Netflix instant

I used to be into blogging a lot but that was probably because we didn't have any cable subscription and now we finally decided to get Netflix because we heard you could get it with a simple subscription to a service called unblockus and since we did that life has changed a lot.

I used to want to go out on dates with my husband, and that costs quite some money from our monthly budget but now, I'm content sitting at home watching stuff like Teen Wolf (the MTV series) and Life on Mars (the US version) and we also found out recently that we can switch to unblock us UK and then we get to see the UK netflix shows - and there are a lot more movies on that side of it.

Wow, that was a long sentence... 

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I still bake quite a lot and cook yummy food and I post most of those photos on my facebook or Instagram... but to sit down and blog it is not as much fun as watching Psych - commercial free!

But in the next few days I will post the recipe I used to make these:

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies stuffed with oreo!
And by the way, Teen Wolf - is really funny - I never thought I would laugh so hard at the "gory scary stuff" but it's hilarious.

I remember going to see one of those Halloween movies in the theatre like 15 years ago and being totally freaked out and there were all these people in the theatre laughing and throwing popcorn and being obnoxious, I was younger then and not really into the Horror genre... but I get the humor in it now!

Oh yeah, one more thing, Kailea is 6 1/2 - but still quite the kiddo if you know what I mean. She gets freaked out over the littlest thing. Tonight when I put her to bed she was scared out of her shorts over an episode of Phineas and Ferb when Candace is dressed like a mummy... I'm not sure she's gonna dig Halloween next weekend... we'll see.

Best Streets to Trick or Treat in Dixie, Southern Utah

This is going to have to be an ongoing post... what I mean, is I might have to update it again next year.

This is going to be a very big deal this year. My kids have never experienced real American Trick or Treating. I have talked about it, and they have seen it on tv shows over the years and they are very excited. As am I!

This is why I wanted to pick a neighborhood that would be awesome for their first experience. Originally, I had planned to spend the weekend with my brother and his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. They live in a neighborhood with about a million kids so it was going to be perfect... but since the flu has affected everyone lately, and since my whole family was sick to death of road trips since we moved back here, we decided to stay in St. George.

This posed a problem for me. I didn't know where the best street was. After a quick google search, I found nothing! No one has blogged about this, at least, not in the first three or four pages of a google search.

I did find …

The Tilted Kiln, St George, Utah... pottery and ceramics!

The Tilted Kiln
215 W St. George Blvd
Hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00-8:00; Saturday 10:00-6:00

Today the children and I got to play with clay at The Tilted Kiln in St. George. I had driven past this pottery studio many times not realizing all the fun things it has to offer.

It's not just a pottery shop, though there is a section that some great local artists have pottery for sale. It has a section of ceramics that you can buy and paint yourself and they will cook it again after that. 

That was fun to see. So many great ideas, from painting a large platter with the family name or something like "Dad's Burgers"to piggy banks and garden gnomes. They also had quite a few Christmas related ceramic crafts to paint.

My kids and I had so much fun browsing the ideas and we surely will find ourselves back in the shop come summer vacation! :)

You can come back for parties or other group activities and they have cla…

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals, Hurricane, Utah

Suzy's Closet Dress Rentals
692 N 150 W
Hurricane, Utah
By appointment only.

Last week I had the opportunity to visit with Dena Humphries of Hurricane. She runs Suzy's Closet. It's a non profit Dress Rental in Hurricane. The goal of this non-profit is to provide modest affordable dresses for young women. But, anyone can "rent" a dress - you don't have to be young.

Dena said she had someone going to a Marine ball in Southern California that was older that was borrowing a dress.

The cost to rent dresses is $35 per dress. This covers the cost of dry cleaning therefore, Dena doesn't make anything extra, hence non-profit.

Dena runs this business out of her house, namely out of her living and family rooms.

Why doesn't she call it Dena's Closet? She said because she thought it didn't sound good. She chose the name Suzy because it was cute and similar to her middle name Sue.

How did she get into the business or charity rather?

She got into it becaus…
