Happy Halloween

Cole and the kidsAround this time last year, we had an awesome addition to our family. A little black kitten came to our back door and “invited” himself in to live with us. We originally thought he was a “she” and named him Blossom. Once we found out otherwise, he was renamed Cole (pictured to the right with our boys), and he’s been a special part of our family since.

Every Halloween, we hear the stories of black cats being bad luck, but historically, they were also considered good luck. We think they are the friendliest of them all. If you want to read more about their interesting history, you can visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_cat.

narrow-by featureTo celebrate our year with Cole and all the kiddos dressing up and having fun tonight, all our “Orange and Black” straws (Autumn Amber, Jet Black and Charcoal Gray) are 20% off through the weekend (ends 11:59pm eastern time on November 2, 2014).

Use the Narrow By feature in the store pages (pictured on the right) to filter by Autumn Amber, Jet Black, or Charcoal Gray (these links all filter for you too). This promotion applies to the Charcoal Gray Funky Straw To Go Combos as well (this is the best savings and you get a straw, brush, and case!). You must use promo code LUCKYCAT when you checkout to receive the discount.

  1. I love when the evening of Halloween trick or treating comes to an end. The front porch light is turned off and my four kids dump their loot on the rug in front of them and sort and classify their favorites from those that they don’t like as much.

    They barter and exchange and swap their least favorite with their most favorite. After several hours of this, my kids box up their candy and we ship it to organizations that ship the candy overseas to our soldiers.

  2. I love seeing my 4 month old niece’s reaction to others being dressed up on Halloween!! Selfishly, I also loved dressing her up! She is the most adorable strawberry for her very first Halloween. Happy Halloween, guys!

  3. We love to dress up and have so far done family theme costumes each year. I plan to keep that up until the kids are old enough to completely refuse. 😉

  5. We LOVE black cats! We adopted a brother/sister pair 14 years ago, Fred and Lula. Sadly, Lula died this summer. Fred is a very cozy boy, and as of two weeks ago, he has a new buddy, Zoe. She is also a black kitty. They haven’t been too keen on each other, but I think, in time, they will at least stop hissing when they see one another! 🙂

  6. I love seeing all the neighbors come out and sit on their porches to have out candy. It almost becomes like the days when I was younger and people did that every day. I love seeing the shy ones become brave as they head out in their costumes to slay dragons and wear their crowns! And I love watching my grandchildren enjoying themselves as they show off their costumes! And the bonus is the half off candy the day after!
