This Halloween yogurt bark is such a fun and festive treat! Yogurt with some pumpkin swirled in and covered with googly eye sprinkles, yogurt covered pretzels and M&Ms. If you want to be a little more healthy, top with fruits and sneak in some veggies. Because honestly I could add the googly eye sprinkles on anything and the boys will eat it!

Scroll below for my Halloween Yogurt Bark recipe! And I’m sharing more fun Halloween ideas on the bottom!

Halloween Yogurt Bark

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups yogurt (you can use any kind or flavor, I used vanilla)

5 things I bought Friday

5 Things I Bought Friday

This post contains affiliate links

TGIF Friends!!!! It’s time for another 5 Things I Bought Friday. Can you tell we have Halloween on the brain over here? I was never a big fan of Halloween until having kids and now I love all the spooky fun things that come with the season. So without another minute, scroll down to see my purchases from this week.

Spiders – I saw a fun idea for spooky Halloween soap and these spiders did the trick! Fill a liquid soap dispenser halfway with soap, add some spiders, top off with more soap and voila – you have spooky Halloween soap! Maxwell has also been leaving this little spiders around the house on our pillows and table to try and scare us 🙂

Bats – These 3-D bats were a hit last year and they are back!!!! We decorated our walls and doors this week. They’re also easy to take down and won’t pull the paint off your walls.

Buffalo check cardigan – I thought this was perfect for Halloween and into fall. Layer with fun graphic tees (stay tuned for that), or dress it up.

Butter bronzer – ok so not Halloween themed but I have been wearing this for over a year and was running low. Great drugstore bronzer, very natural looking and smells nice too! (I use the exclusive edition, shown below. Not sure what the difference is to be honest).

Halloween play dough kit – I just bought this for the kids the other day and it should be arriving shortly! The kids LOVE these fun playdough kits. I had bought the larger sensory one (shown below), it’s currently sold out and I’m not sure if she will have more. But she also has fun mini ones too that I’ve linked here!

Nesting whitewashed brick exterior limestone

Random thoughts on a sunny September Saturday morning.

The kids finished their first week in their new classrooms. Somehow, this time next year I will have a kindegartener. I hope all of your kids and you parents are adjusting. I have loved seeing everyone’s back to school photos. It is my absolute favorite. It’s crazy how fast these kids grow.

This week I shared a new recipe for my Pumpkin Spice Snack Mix. It’s a great after school snack or if you’re just craving something sweet and salty.

Another great back to school snack or healthy dessert idea are my Banana Split Apple Nachos.

Speaking of apples, I think we’re going to go apple picking this weekend. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do in fall.

If you’re looking for a good chill playlist, ask Alexa to play “Acoustic Covers”. You’re welcome 🙂

Tula just launched their lip care trio and it’s soooo good! Three different shades to give you a hint of color while hydrating and smoothing your lips. This weekend through Monday 9/13, you can get free shipping + 15% off when you use my code OURTINYNEST on your orders.

This weekend is 1 year that we whitewashed our exterior brick and it is still one of my favorite projects to date!

Here’s the before –

brick house

And the after –

Rick used Sherwin Williams white exterior paint and mixed 1 part paint with 2 parts water to give it the whitewashed look. It’s held up well! This spring we’re looking forward to re-doing our driveway and front porch.

I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
