Happy Halloween everyone! Are you feeling spooky yet? Are you doing anything fun and festive for the occasion? Well for me, we have the option to wear a costume at school, but since most of mine aren't really school appropriate (aka too tight/short) I'll be opting to wear my orange tweed skirt to show off my festive side. So today I wanted to share some pictures from this past weekend which was filled with fall festive fun! It was fabulous : )
D and I headed up to the Poconos to visit my parents. I forced him into doing a haunted house with me, and it was hilarious because how much he hates this kind of stuff -- yet he still lets me do it. What a doll he is. We went to this place called the "Hotel of Horrors" which was supposedly a haunted hotel in the 1800's. I don't know if it's true or not but geeeez oh man, that ish was scarryyyy!!
Doesn't the outside of the hotel look like some scary old mental institution? At least that's what I thought. That's my scared face above as I try to warm up with some hot chocolate!
We made it out of the haunted house alive and headed back to my parents house for some major snuggles to warm up next to the fire. I love my parent's fireplace -- it's seriously one of my favorite things about going home. The smells of the burning wood and the sound of the crackling wood -- oh yes! Between the cracking fire, drinking hot apple cider, snuggling on the couch under blankets and making D watch the movie "Halloween" on dvd for the 38294782 time --
I was in HEAVEN!
On Sunday we hit up the Great Pocono Pumpkin Festival bright and early before the Giants played the Eagles.
pumpkins and gourds galore!
me and momma.
love him : )
and of course we had to hit up the world's largest general store. If this was actually the world's largest general store, I'm not really sure, but it was pretty damn big and had fun for all. My mom left with some homemade peanut brittle, D left with two vintage style kerosene lamps he's been on the hunt for for a while now, and I came home with an amazing home made popcorn maker complete with organic kernels and all the fun seasonings. More on that in a future blog post coming soon!
Anyway, hope you all have a spooktacular Halloween!
Halloween costume pics of me and D coming soon : )
