If you’re looking to make the coolest margarita mix of all time, you’ve come to the right place. Jeff’s mom is crazy about all things zombies, so we made some special homemade zombie-style margarita mixes for her birthday. We used fresh raspberries and limes to make two different kinds of mixes, and we added food coloring to maximize creepiness. Because they both turned out jaw-droppingly good, we thought we’d share the recipe, so you can make delicious margaritas (just add tequila) or virgin cocktails (just add soda).

Every October, we save up all our time and energy to expend on an all-out Halloween party. This year, we made taco soup, mini chimichangas, and cake pops. Plus, we ordered some crazy-awesome chocolates from The Truffle Cottage with homages to Ghostbusters, Scream, and Nightmare Before Christmas. We thought we’d share some of our decorations with you, along with a snapshot of our costumes. Happy Halloween!

With my favorite holiday fast approaching, some of you may be scrambling to throw together an easy costume. Not everyone can obsessively plan out Halloween months in advance (like I do), and maybe you just want a clever costume for a Halloween party. Here are some easy costume options that can all be donned by women and gents alike.

1. Dr. Who

What You Need:

  • Collared shirt
  • Tweed jacket
  • Red bow tie
  • Fez

With a few easy-to-find and inexpensive items, you’re in business as Dr. Who. Think Geek even offers a Dr. Who quick costume set with a fez and bow tie. It doesn’t get any easier.

2. Shaun

What You Need:

  • Name tag
  • Red tie
  • White collared shirt
  • Fake blood

Muss up your shirt and tie so you look nice and disheveled from running for your life. Don’t forget to put a red ink stain on the shirt pocket. Bonus points for adding a cricket bat to the ensemble.

When guests to our apartment step into our bathroom without  warning about the décor, they’re usually a bit startled. (Who am I kidding? We never give warning. We love seeing our friends’ horror-stricken faces.) Our bathroom screams slasher horror or perhaps zombie apocalypse. Personally, I like to think it’s reminiscent of the shower scene in Psycho. Our shower curtain and bathmat are soaked in tasteful blood splatters, as well as bloody handprints and footprints, and we have a lovely saying about zombies hanging on the wall (from our wedding, of course).

Now if we can just get the rest of the apartment looking this cool, we’ll be in business. (Literally. We could probably charge for tours due to pure awesomeness.)
