It’s Halloween…I’ll take all your treats.

This weekend we visited the local bakery in Fort Worth. It’s called Blue Bonnet Bakery. And if you haven’t visited in a while, you should, not just on Halloween, but any time of year. They are in a newly renovated space that I just adore!

It’s an old Church. I’m guessing Methodist. The ceilings are high and there is even stain glass. You can cruise the cases, and then sit in a pew to eat lunch (or cookies).

We did both. We got cookies and cupcakes. We, also, ate lunch in the altar on a pew bench.

The view from our spot gives you an overlook of the whole bakery. I don’t know about you, but there is something about bakeries. The delicious smells. The warm cases of cookies. The beauty of display cakes, and every decoration screams celebration.

It’s hard not to be happy in bakery.

It was a delicious site (sight?). We enjoyed every morsel of our Halloween “treats”.


We enjoyed the lunch part too – Turkey clubs and PB&J sandwiches.

Later that evening, Jason, Sydney’s boyfriend Brandon, and I, headed to Six Flags over Texas to see Sydney at work. A place my beautiful daughter has been every weekend in October.

Looking like this……

Scaring the wee out people.

It’s not just a haunted house. It’s a 3D haunted house. You get to wear goofy scary glasses.

The entrance.

It wasn’t too scary, although, those clown masks were very creepy! But the 3D art on the walls lit with black lights was outstanding. We found Sydney and almost hugged. Scared the people behind us to death. They thought she was going to touch them too. It’s really funny because, she is so tiny in that giant clown mask. I can imagine being scared of her. LOL.

I had not been to Six Flags during Fright Fest before. It was way cool. The place was decked out. This picture is a spider’s nest up in the trees.

The park was packed. Sorta like Mardi Gras on Halloween. I have never seen so many people at Six Flags before. Sydney said 32,000 were there Saturday night. We were going to ride the Titan, but the line was three hours long.

I think we will ride another time.

We went home to our cookies and cakes. 🙂

I hope you all have a FABULOUS Halloween!
