Blinged Out Pumpkin Project {Guest Post by Refunk My Junk}

Howdy Sizzlin Savage readers!  I am Allison from Refunk My Junk and I am so excited Nicole invited me on over to guest post today! 
We are sure missing Nicole in Oklahoma, so it makes me feel like she's right here by visiting her here, on her blog's home!  Today I am going to share a super easy blinged out pumpkin project just in time for Fall!
Here is what you need:
1. One Plastic Pumpkin: I got mine at Michael's for $4.00.  It was super cheap because it had a crack in it!
2. A glass or plastic candle stick that you can find at any old thrift store for .50 cents.
3. Spray Paint:  I chose a high gloss black to match my cracked out pumpkin.  Additional Spray Paint in a contrasting color.
4. Rhinestones from the $1 bin at Michaels. 
5.  Wooden letters from the $1 Bin at Michaels.  (Can you tell I hang out at Michaels way too much?)
 I chose to spell the word "Boo" with my letters.
6. Ribbon: Just any old ribbon you have laying around your casa. 
Now that you have your supplies gathered up, let Refunk this pumpkin!
Spray paint your candle stick and BOO letters.
Slap those rhinestones on, and no glue needed since they already have sticky backs.
Glue your letters on with your hot glue gun.
Tie up a bow and stick it on the stem.
Thanks so much for letting me stop by and share my blinged out pumpkin project with you today! 
I would love for you to stop by my blog for more inspiration on decorating your home on a dime!
You can also find me on
Happy Refunking!


I just wanted to let you all know I have something special for you today....My friend Allison is insanely talented and she runs Refunk my Junk and she will be doing a guest post today!!!!! Get excited.

Also, I have had the worst week with migraines....I have had one every single day including today and I am at the end of my rope. I don't understand why me? Yes, I have a neurologist, take meds, watch for my triggers but none of that will stop a migraine. So I can't do anything but deal. I hope you all have a great Friday and enjoy the guest post.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

 Happy Hump Day Friends! We are 1/2 way thru the week and I am sure you are wondering what I am loving today?? Right ?? HA!

* I am loving Scentsy's NEW Pumpkin Warmer!! Is this not so cute?? I am going to leave mine out until Dec 1! That is the great thing about this warmer it is perfect for all of Fall! It is also on SALE! Score! If you order it will be shipped right to your home and don't forget a new Fall bar! To check it out click HERE!!!
 * While I have been surfing the web I found 2 dresses I love and they might be perfect for a special occasion I just wish they were a tad cheaper! You can find these at Piperlime!

 * I am loving these two tops I pinned yesterday!!! Aren't they so cute?? Get in my closet! I know the second one if from Anthropology (of course) and the first one a British company!

 * Pumpkin! Since it is officially Fall I jumped in with both feet........I made my first Pumpkin Pie this week as well as Pumpkin bread! Yumm!!! Have you started Fall baking yet? And yes, I am gonna make pumpkin everything until Matt and I just can't eat it anymore!
 * Parenthood!
Who doesn't want to a Braverman? I know we are only two episodes in but after the season premiere when ME the girl who rarely cries teared up I was reminded how much I missed this show. I mean when Haddie said goodbye to her parents at the airport....I mean it obviously spoke to me but man I was all sorts of verklempt! This show is real, has heart, has moments of laughter and it shows real love between a family.
 * Yes! Thank you ABC for picking the perfect Bachelor........ABC announced it yesterday (although Reality Steve spilled the beans weeks ago) that Sean is the next Bachelor! This is a season I can get behind! Who's with me?
 * And finally, Fall has arrived in my front yard! I love it, every time I see hints of Fall it warms my heart! And those red flower things, NO idea what they are but when we moved in they were green and look at them now! I love em!
What are you loving today???????

I have a few things I wanted to share with you all on this Tasty Tuesday afternoon and the first being.....balls! Something about ground chicken weirds me out, so even when I was making this I was telling myself it wouldn't be very good. But after my first bite a second helping was in my future for sure!!! Now trust me on the ingredients....I pinned this recipe but then changed it up a smidgen to make it easier!
Cheesy Chicken Meatballs
1 lb ground chicken
1 cup Panko (plus a little more)
¼ cup milk
1 small onion, minced or grated
1 Tablespoon sour cream
1 egg
Salt, Pepper and a dash of garlic powder
¼ cup mayonnaise
¾ cup mozzarella cheese
¼ cup parmesan cheese
 How To:
- Mix everything but the mayo and cheese into a bowl. It will be a wet mixture so add a little more panko until that it can form a ball. (not too much now) Then I used a little cookie scoop to make the balls and don't "over" roll them. Just make a ball no need to be perfect!
- Drizzle mayo on the top of each ball as well as a mixture of Italian cheeses! I promise it works
- Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes and they will look like this. Trust me the chicken will be done, don't cook it longer they will dry out.............
 And wham.....serve with mash potatoes!! This was so flavorful and good! Try it soon!
 The weather here in Columbus has been pretty, living in Oklahoma you don't get too much of a Fall so finally Ohio has a leg up on Oklahoma! When it isn't raining we eat on the patio...........The highs this week are 65-72 and the lows in the 50s! This is perfect for me and would you believe we had to turn the heater on on Sunday night because the low was 34!
 On Sundays we wear our Broncos gear and Matt will cheer on the team and......well, I will support the team in other ways that don't involve watching a 4 hour game on TV! ha
 So apparently Ohio is huge for Hot Air Balloons and so far every weekend lately when we wake up we wake up to this..................... SO cool huh??
 And of course I had to share my latest pictures of my babies! This is Abner snuggling on me and I am sure we were watching something on Bravo!
 And look at this face..........Oscar is so sweet I could eat him up! Sometimes I blow bubbles on his belly like you would with a should see his face, he has no idea what is going on its hysterical!
 And lastly the past 2 night I have cooked dinner with the window up in the kitchen! It is so nice.....that is my "prep side" and I never knew how much I wanted a window in the kitchen!
Happy Tuesday.......Parenthood comes on tonight! Man, I want to be a Braverman....who's with me???

Erin Condren Love....

Around the "blog-a-sphere" Erin Condred is highly loved and I have coveted one of her custom planners for a long time. Since moving, joining JL, planning trips home and starting our new life I decided I deserved one! haha! They aren't super cheap but they sure are fun.............
Oh ya, I got the multi-color pen pack to match my was like back to school supply day for grown ups when this package came in the mail Saturday!
Here she is!! You can choose between 10-12 different designs and then custom colors for each design. You can even have your cover be all pictures but I liked this fun chocolate design with touches of color! And yes, it does say 2012-2012 and that is 100% my fault, in what must have been a brain freeze I wrote that in the form. Oh well.
I had them put a picture on the back cover and adding a picture is like $5........
I was also excited about my 2 custom notepads! They stick to the back cover of the planner. 
Yup,  I didn't even know that it came with fun matching labels. Also in a separate envelope I got a bonus gift of more labels that said "Just something special from Nicole Savage" that I can use on gifts or baked goods!!
This picture shows my ruler that will save my week and the cute folder in the planner to hold whatever I need it to.
And behold.......custom stickers!!! Oh ya, those are actual stickers with my pictures on them! So fun huh? I feel like such a I can't wait to write with my color pens and then decorate with stickers
Whenever you order that is the month your planner will start so mine is Sept-Sept..........
Throughout the planner there are wonderful inspirational quotes and each month has a different color scheme which is nice!
And this is what the weeks look like, it is divided into morning, day, night and at the sides of the pages there is a place to write "To-Dos and Goals"!
Erin Condren also does Holiday cards and a lot of other fun stuff gotta check out her site. Click HERE to visit it!

It seemed that last nights Emmy's had 2 things in common:
1. No stand out dresses for me, really nothing I feel like talking about today
Yup, you heard me boobs were the accessory of the night....I mean I just couldn't look away..........

Uh, yup....I guess if you got em flaunt em huh? Or that might only apply to celebrities and even then there is a very fine line that some of these ladies is straddling!
