Happy Halloween!

Last night, hubby and I got started on pumpkin carving last night after dinner. I like to carve my special characters into my perfect oversize orange squash the night before to keep things fresh for the big haunted halloween night! Plus, I recall years of ants and squirrels fighting their way into the flesh of my masterpiece before I could even enjoy it’s glowing surprise. Le sigh. Not this time city pests!

I love holidays and every tradition that comes along with them. Messy pumpkin guts and a good handful of Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups included {speaking of… where’s my chocolate stash?}. However, this year, I’ll be taking a back seat on the “dressing up” part. Being pregnant does not put me in much of a mood to dawn a costume – especially something “sexy” like the masses of youngin’s who walked these urban sidewalks in droves on Saturday night {Geez, I miss those days}. Times-are-a-changing! Instead, I’ll be dressing up the pup – probably with her jockey costume from last year – it fits her huge ribcage better then the bumblebee, cheerleader, and cowgirl from years past. Hey there cutie pie!

Have a spook-tacular day!
