Pumpkin Carving 2015

This will be my last Halloween post, I swear. It's just that I love the holiday so, so much and can't help gushing about it. It might be getting to be a little much though, so after this I'll shut up about anything Halloween related. (Until next year, anyway.) 

But for now, pumpkin carving!

Horror Movie Sign

I finally have a real yard, which is awesome! But it means I'm lacking outdoor Halloween decorations (besides Pete, my lovely scarecrow, that is). Here's my first step at remedying this problem:

Halloween Sign

I got the idea from something I found on Pinterest. But, of course, I wanted to modify it to include all my favorite scary movie places. Like Silent Hill, the most creepy cool place ever. 

Halloween House

If you know me at all, you probably wouldn’t be shocked to find out Halloween is my favorite holiday. October is like everything I love most crammed into one month.

There are creepy things everywhere and no one finds it bizarre or morbid. There are a million horror movies to watch. There’s pumpkin spice everything. (Yep, I’m one of those people. In my house at this moment I have pumpkin spice flavored Oreos, M&Ms, Pop-Tarts, oatmeal, tea, liqueur, baking chips, and probably some other things I’m forgetting).

Bamboo Rescue

Even though the bamboo belongs to me it’s been such a fixture in the office that bringing it home felt slightly forbidden. A kidnapping.

At 5:30 on April 30th I wrapped my bamboo in plastic and slipped it furtively out the door. And how did I feel when we made it safely to my little lime green getaway car? Free.
