I love Pinterest. Don’t you? I swear, I could lose eleven hours a day there if I allowed it.
I’d not admit to it, though.
I especially like using it for holiday ideas: Christmas, Thanksgiving recipes, and of course, Halloween. Now that Seven is in kindergarten, I need to be THAT mom – the mom with the cool snacks to take in, hoping it makes him a rockstar.
So I turn to Pinterest.
I was recently turned on to a reason to spend time on Pinterest…a Pin to Win contest.
Sweet. I’ll accept any reason to Pin. ANY. REASON.
But this one, it’s a good reason.
Avocados from Mexico is giving away prizes for folks with the best Halloween pinboards.
Just make a Pinterest board that show what makes Halloween celebrations fun at your house and enter for a chance to win one of 10 – $100 gift cards! Include your favorite costumes, decorations and dishes, but be sure to include at least 3 pins from Avocados from Mexico's collection of great Halloween recipes and everyday favorites at avocadosfrommexico.com.

Be sure to follow their Ghouliciously Green Halloween board on Mexican Avocados Pinterest too and have a spooky good time! Need an idea? Here's a Ghoulishly Green Halloween board example.
In case you are interested, here’s a few things I found to pin…and I can’t decide which I like best. What about you?
The picture above? That's a Spookamary. Fun, right? Here's the recipe, straight from the Avocados from Mexico site. Enjoy!
