My New Project!



Hello my Spooky Friends!

I have been on Spook-Sabatical here at the Ronnebeck Household!

Inspired on my recent trip to St. Vincent De Paul Thrift store, and Pinterest, I'm pleased to share my newest craft Project! I am excited for the challenge of taking this very cute play toy and making it a spooky decoration for Halloween at my house! Stay tuned.

I paid $1.50 for it, so no matter how bad it goes, it was worth the investment!

Looking forward to connecting with you all here more often as we start the count down to our favorite Month of the year! October!

Spook ya later!
AbbyNormal.

Lots of goodies to be had!

Jack-O-Lanterns!


The tools of the trade... I feel like every year I talk myself into buying one of those kits... which lands me with about 10 serrated crappy knives. Remember when our parents would use the kitchen knives, and we'd be ORIGINAL!? Well, my husband went with that this year... I did a stencil and though it looks cool, I always feel a bit awkward about it. I mean, Jack-o-Lanterns... three triagles and a mouth... TRADITIONAL.

In Keeping with tradition, Aquaman decided to lick himself silly on pumpkins. Later in the evening I caught him with a small piece of it chewing it like a bone. This dog loves himself some pumpkin!



We ended up carving 3 of the 4 pumpkins. The big round one took more effort, than we thought, and it was getting late!


This year though I tried something different with the seeds... They are TO DIE FOR!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, then follow these steps:
Step 1 : Clean most of the gunk off the seeds
Step 2: Boil the Seeds in hot water and salt (season to taste) for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Strain boiled seeds, and remove any additional "gunk". Then, toss with Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper and if you don't mind a little spice, Cayenne Pepper.
Step 4: Flatten out seeds on a cookie sheet, and top them with a little more salt, pepper and cayenne.
Step 5: Bake for 5 Minutes, then toss and spread flat again, then bake for 7 Minutes and toss, bake for 4 minutes, and toss and then bake for 3 minutes and toss.

Depending on the heat of your oven, keep your eye out on the last few increments though... We like ours crispy! I usually only eat a couple seeds a season, and I couldn't quit putting these seeds in my tummy last night!

Off my Groove

Sorry guys - We didn't get around to carving our pumpkins last night... so I'm kind of out of my posting groove this morning. I don't have to work tomorrow morning, so we're going to hack into them tonight, so I'll have to get pictures up!

I get up stupid early for work so I always have to watch my episode of the Walking Dead on Tuesday evenings... so Please, don't spoil it for me ever, but can we just say HOLY CRAP to the season this year?!!!


Every time I think this show cannot surprise me more, it has an episode like this past week... Muahahaha Tainted Meat!

I wanna know, WHO is your favorite WD character?

Mine changes what feels like every week - but I think Daryl will always have my heart.... the hick is just so bad ass!
