Were you hoping for another post about pumpkins? Perfect...
Chris invited me to go with him to Boyd Orchard Monday afternoon because he had the day off work. Love when he thinks of fun daytime dates!
We browsed through the store buying things like local honey (me), onion ring batter (him), carmel apples (me), potato soup mix (me), fried chicken something-or-other (him), chili (him), etc.
Then we walked through the pumpkin patch comparing sizes and shapes of pumpkins like the experts we aren't.
Both of us realized we hadn't been to a pumpkin patch in at least 10 years. I was quickly reminded of that when we were the only adults there without children. YOLO people.
Finally, we each found a pumpkin worth taking home.
Mine was perfectly round and symmetrical with a good stem for carrying. His was 1 pound bigger than mine (because he's the most competitive boy on the planet) and oblong.
We grabbed a yummy burger at Hugh Jass and headed to his house to carve away.
We both got really excited when we found our carving patterns online.
Here is the before and after:
This is my version of making a political statement. Chris chose to show off his misguided fanhood by carving the script Louisville "L". Bless his heart - he wasn't born with Kentucky blue blood running through his veins. (can you say house divided??)
Regardless, it was a really fun day with my favorite boy and there was only 1 casualty...
JUST KIDDING! We also bought vampire blood for absolutely no reason at all.
OOoohhhhhhh. So scary.
This weekend were going to a costume party at a friend's house.
I was just made aware of this plan today (WEDNESDAY!) so I don't have a costume together yet.
I'm thinking I either want to be Katniss from the Hunger Games
I'm obsessed with HG and I already own combat boots so Katniss would be easy and I'd feel like a badass.
However I also own a jankity old blonde wig and lots of tanning lotion and bronzer...so Tanning Mom would be easy, culturally relevant, and funny.
What to do? What to do? Help!
