Editor Samantha Pogue’s Obsession: The Witching Hour Site’s Interactive Trick–or–Treat
One tradition truly makes my Halloween complete: attending The Witching Hour Site’s Interactive Trick-or-Treat in Roach, Missouri. Located just a few miles west of Camdenton off Route AA, this annual home haunt is more than another Halloween event in the Lake area. The Interactive Trick-or-Treat has given local Halloween-goers a free, safe, exciting and spooky trick-or-treating setting that resembles so many adults’ childhood traditions on Halloween. Children can experience the throwback feeling of walking up to the creepy house and ringing the doorbell, as well as ample opportunities to earn prizes, candy and loads of ghostly fun in multiple stationed, walk-through areas. The money, detail and hard work Kem and David Duran put in year-round to update, craft and host their interactive trick-or-treat for free is remarkable. Check out this incredible experience, taking place Saturday, Oct. 28 in Roach. For more information, visit Facebook.com/pg/WitchingHourSite or WitchingHourSite.com.
Marketing Coordinator Amber Boehme’s Obsession: Jane (Daily Boutique Shopping App)
If you are anything like me, you love the feeling of walking out of a store knowing you got a great deal. Within the past year I moved into a new place, and I am still on the hunt for fun wall décor. My current obsession is this shopping app I recently discovered called Jane. This app compiles the hottest deals from a countless number of boutiques and other online shops. Boutiques are always fun because you come across a lot of unique items that you just can’t find anywhere else. The app shares deals on clothing, shoes, health and beauty products, and home décor items. I recently ordered a rustic sign for my kitchen off the app and it is my favorite new addition to the room. If you love finding great deals, check it out!
Graphic Designer Heather Pirner’s Obsession: Love2Nourish
I am currently obsessed with an eatery called Love2Nourish located in downtown Jefferson City. Love2Nourish offers fresh, delicious, grab-n-go meals and treats that are made fresh daily. The best part about Love2Nourish is that it’s a safe environment for anyone like myself who suffers from celiac disease. Having this condition prevents me from safely dining out at most restaurants. But at Love2Nourish, EVERYTHING on their menu is free of gluten and always tastes absolutely amazing! The staff is always extremely nice and very helpful as well! Many thanks everyone at Love2Nourish!
Graphic Designer/Sales Representative Kate Johnson’s Obsession: Melissa and Doug Magnetic Responsibility Chart
I have an almost 3 year old at home, and the Melissa and Doug Magnetic Responsibility Chart is the most useful item I’ve found to assist us with creating structure and responsibility at a young age while still entertaining him. This chart excites my son by allowing him to put on the pieces he’s achieved, knowing he
will get rewarded if he accomplished all of his responsibilities for the day. My favorite part of the chart is the responsibilities used on the board. They range from “say please and thank you,” which is ideal to teach a toddler, to “load dishwasher,” which is perfect for older children. If you purchase this chart you won’t be sorry!
Graphic Designer Rosie Woodruff’s Obsession: Zootoberfest
There’s nothing better than a cool, crisp fall day, especially when that day is spent at the zoo. With the coming of October, there’s one more thing to look forward to: Oktoberfest. The St. Louis Zoo offers their take on the traditional German holiday with Zootoberfest. Formerly known as Ottertoberfest, the festivities have been expanded to embrace the entire park. With lots of crafts and activities for children, zookeeper chats and a biergarten for the adults, the event promises to satisfy the whole family. Best of all, the zoo has free admission, so it’s a budget-friendly venture. Zootoberfest will be taking place Sept. 30-Oct. 1 and Oct. 7-8.
