@AbigailJaneBlog wow I loved all #HHS gifts so much! I‘m afraid the decorations were immediately nabbed and put up by the kids. They are awesome. My favourite is the trick or treat heart 💜 so pretty! As per your instruction no chocolate has been shared with children (or husbands) 😂

AbigailJaneBlog Ahh I'm so glad the little'uns liked them - I thought they'd have fun with those! I'm also so glad you ate the chocolate, I was so worried I'd get something wrong in that department! Please enjoy your halloween treats and have a lovely November 🍂🧡 3y

Thank you so much @Callemarie for my awesome #AllHallowsreadswap box of goodies! I can‘t wait to read the books! Love the treats and will be trying tea this afternoon. Love opening day 🎃

Thanks for hosting, Chelle!

BayouGirl85 Discovery of Witches is one of my favorites. The whole series is fantastic. 3y
Callemarie Yay I‘m glad you liked it! I wasn‘t sure if you had read a discovery of witches. I didn‘t see it anywhere on Litsy that you had so I took a chance! Happy 🎃 👻 3y

Another fun #readathon to finish our #scarathlon2021!! I‘m not sure if I can finish 20 hours in 4 days but I‘m gonna sure try 🤣! I have 2 books I‘m really trying to finish by the end of the week so this is perfect. Thanks @Andrew65 !

Andrew65 Thanks for sharing 😍 For anyone interested it runs from Thursday - Sunday or Friday - Monday depending on your choice. Alternatively use all 5 days. Flexible this month for those doing #Scarathlon during October. 3y
Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 3y

MY FAVORITE PART OF THE MOVIE!! He turns around and she‘s *gone* and his little 🎵duh-duh-duhhh!🎶🎹 plays and ugh, it gives me chills every time. I love this franchise.

I was surprised when I came home from work today to see my #HHS21 swap package had arrived. I didn‘t see a Litsy handle on the box but man, my match is seriously on top of things! Way to go!

@wanderinglynn

wanderinglynn Yes, we have a couple people really on the ball! Now the challenge is to put it somewhere you won‘t forget and also won‘t be tempted! 👻🖤🎃 3y
