Halloween Sips and Snacks for Scary Movie Night // Twin Stripe

Happy Halloween! After a long week, I’m looking forward to passing out some treats and relaxing with a pumpkin flavored cider from Woodchuck. Chad’s going to be sipping on Pumpkin Hunter brew. I’ll be popping some popcorn and adding a few Halloween treats to compliment a scary movie. I don’t know what we’ll be watching tomorrow night, but here are a bunch of scary movie suggestions that you can stream from your couch.

DIY Cat Ears Halloween // Twin StripeDo you have your costume ready for Halloween this Friday? If you’re anything like me, you would prefer to stay home on October 31 and pass out treats to the neighborhood kids. I’m not a big fan of dressing up until I thought about how easy it would be to make your own cat ears for Halloween. All you need is tail and your costume is complete!

This weekend we had the most amazing fall weather in North Carolina. It was sunny and a perfect 70 degrees. On Saturday afternoon Chad and I took advantage of the weather and took a two hour road trip to York, SC to visit Windy Hill Orchard & Cidery.

Windy Hill Orchard and Cider, York, SC // Twin Stripe

It was well worth the drive to visit this quaint orchard and cidery where we enjoyed hard cider flights and apple cider doughnuts. Sadly, I was only able to take a bite of the doughnut, but it was delicious! If you are interested in learning more about cider, Chad’s next brewmaster post will be all about them!

Windy Hill orchard style // Twin StripeWhen I was getting ready to head to the orchard, I didn’t know what the weather would be like two hours away, so I dressed in layers. I just got this great puffer vest from Old Navy and paired it will a tee, jeans and tan booties. This layered look was perfect for all weather.

It’s hard to believe this upcoming week is the last week in October. Fall will be over before we know it and winter will be in full swing. I hope you all had a great weekend and a chance to enjoy a fall activity or two!


We’ve made it to another weekend! Hooray! I’m going to be spending a lot of time crafting and cooking away for the blog and upcoming holidays, but I wouldn’t mind trying one of these fun Halloween projects when I have time.
