Halloween Highlights

I can’t believe it’s November!  Between cheerleading, my new job, and weekends filled to the brim with plans, fall is flying by!  I can’t say I’m excited for the winter, especially with the sneak preview of snow that we got this past weekend but I am looking forward to the holidays.

Speaking of which, I love Halloween!  Saturday afternoon I spent some time carving the free pumpkin I got from work for a pumpkin carving contest.  When the time came to carve it, I really wasn’t into it.  But I found an idea online and it actually came out really awesome!  It’s Boogie Oogie from Nightmare Before Christmas!

I didn’t win but I was impressed with my carving skills!  Michelle helped me clean it out and then roasted the seeds.  She tossed them with some olive oil and salt and stuck them in the oven and watched them closely until they were crispy.  I hadn’t really ever eaten them before, but they were tasty and lightweight addicting.

Then Saturday we went to a Halloween party, which started out in the dark because my friends lost power from the snowstorm.  About an hour into the party it came back on, but it was kinda fun to have a candlelit Halloween party.  I always hate thinking of costume ideas, but I do love putting them together.  I’m a costume thrifting machine!  Last year Dave and I were the Mad Hatter and Alice, which came out SO good.

This year we were struggling to come up with something, but finally decided on decided on Tyler Durden and Marla from Fight Club.  And if you haven’t seen that movie, get on it.

My friends go all out on Halloween, I love it!

She made that firetruck! 

 Seriously scary!

Michelle made those antlers, how crafty! 

 Harry & Granny!

Bustin' a move!

What’s your favorite holiday?
I can never pick because I love a bunch of them, but there’s something magical about Christmas.  And then there’s Thanksgiving, who doesn’t like a holiday that revolves around stuffing your face, watching football, and taking a nap?!


  1. Cute! The Halloween party was definitely a blast. Next up, Turducken Day! I wish I had my camera so I could have taken some pictures. Email me some? <3

  2. Love the costumes! I like all holidays, but Halloween, Hanukkah and Christmas are up there for me. Thanks for all your help moving things last night. Enjoy your new dresser!!!!
