Copycat Quake Shake

Copycat Quake Shake

**This post is NOT sponsored by Ghirardelli**

Because I live so close to Disneyland, I went to Disneyland and California Adventure a lot.  Almost every time I would go I had to stop at the Ghirardelli shop in California Adventure and get a Caramel Quake Shake for myself while walking around the park. Unfortunately, my pass has expired and I still craved that Quake Shake. So, I bought some chocolate caramels from Ghirardelli at my local grocery store and ice cream and I was on a mission to make my own Quake Shake!

Right after I made this and took a sip, I knew I’d hit the jack pot. This was EXACTLY what the Quake Shake tastes like in California Adventure! So, I got out my camera and took pictures!

 

What You’ll Need:

Vanilla Ice Cream

Milk

Chocolate’s of your choice (I chose chocolate caramels from Ghirardelli)

My Favorite Halloween Movies

My Favorite Halloween Movies

This year I have really taken full advantage of Halloween movies.  I have to admit that I without a doubt hate watching scary movies. Most of these (ok, all of these) movies I’ve watched since I was a little kid.

All of the pictures are from Google Images

 

halloween movies

  1. Hocus Pocus  

Starting off with a classic! I don’t think I need a reason why this is one of my favorite Halloween movies.        Though I still cannot watch this movie at night, I love watching it during the day. In the movie, Max and his family move to Salem, Massachusetts.  On the day of Halloween he hears a story about the Sanderson sisters and calls it “a bunch of Hocus Pocus”. Him, his sister, and crush find out if the story is fiction taking them on a scary Halloween adventure!

2. Halloweentown

Another classic, Halloweentown! Watching this movie this year is a little sad because we lost the beloved Debby Reynolds. But she lives with the children of the late 90s/early 2000s in the Halloweentown movies! In the movie, Marnie has always known she was different. Every Halloween her grandma comes to visit for a nice family dinner. Grandma Aggie reads Marnie and her siblings a story called Halloweentown! Marnie decides to sneak out of her bed and follow her Grandma to the bus stop, hops onto the bus and finds out that not only is Halloweentown real, but she and her family are witches and warlocks!

3. Casper Meets Wendy

If you didn’t watch Hillary Duff in one of her first movies, I would suggest it.  Hillary Duff’s character Wendy has to move in with her three Aunts.  The new house they bought has been occupied by Casper and his Uncles continuing to scare the new owners into fleeing, but not these witches! George Hamilton is even in it playing a bad guy trying to take Wendy!

4. Double Double Toil and Trouble

My sister Mia and I loved Mary-Kate and Ashley movies I think because it was something we could relate to being identical twins ourselves.  This movie is definitely a Halloween favorite! Mary-Kate and Ashley go visit their Great-Aunt who hates children.  The girls later find out that their Great-Aunt was actually an identical twin but they weren’t as close as you’d might think.  There was a lot of jealousy and the evil twin trapped the nice twin in a mirror for all of eternity.

5. Tower of Terror

This is another Halloween movie that I like to watch during the day.  Kirsten Dunst’s character and her Uncle Buzz who investigates rumored stories goes to the Hollywood Hotel to talk with a relative of one of the elevator passengers the night of the crash.  We get a look into what really happened and see if they make it out!

 

I hope you enjoyed what some of my favorite Halloween movies are! If you have any other suggestions please leave them in the comments!

 

Until next time..

9 Month Update-Daily Medication

It’s been a couple of months so, I thought I’d give you all an update! It has officially been 9 months without daily medication. The thing about anxiety is, even with medication it doesn’t actually “cure” it.  You’ll always have days where anxiety will come […]

Halloween at Disneyland

Halloween at Disneyland

Although this wasn’t on my fall bucket list, it definitely should have been.  I love going to Disneyland during fall because it’s Halloween!  I missed Halloween at Disneyland last year because I didn’t end up getting my pass until December. But, I’m so happy I made it this year!

I don’t know about you, but the gloomy weather and pumpkin gave me some massive Halloweentown vibes!

Because of Nightmare before Christmas it’s basically Christmas as well; which I absolutely love.  Going into the park was packed! I have never seen so many people at Disneyland before on a weekday!  The Disney train was running again so I hopped on! I traveled through the park looking at all of the beautiful Halloween decorations loving every moment.

Despite the fact that I ended up not having enough time to go to California Adventure, I did manage to take a picture of the entrance!  It’s so pretty and decked out in Halloween Decor!

Halloween at Disneyland

 

Before heading home, I had to make a stop at the candy store picking up what I think are the best caramel apples I’ve ever seen, Maleficent and the Evil Queen!

 

Halloween at Disneyland

Of course I had to get both, you can’t have just one Disney villain, can you?  I’m definitely going to take advantage of the Fall time and go a bunch more!

 

 

Until then..Happy [Disney] Halloween!
