Happy Halloween friends!
I hope you all have had a spooky weekend! Mason and I kept it pretty low key this weekend. I'm talking reallllyyyy. low. key. Half of our friends went to New Orleans this weekend for VooDoo Fest. The other half of our friends went to the Ghostland Observatory concert in Dallas - which was sold out by the time we jumped on the bandwagon. Thus, for the first time in 9 years, we did not dress up, we did not get all boozy at a bar, we did not get in a fight with a girl and lose our cell phones... we just sat at home and watched scary movies, like mature adults. Ok, maybe not mature. Mason got scared by some ghost tv show we were watching and refused to open the bedroom door to see why one of our lights in the living room was still on when he thought he turned it off! I'm glad I have him around to help with ghost patrol! ;)

Anyway, so we spent our afternoon carving a pumpkin!

Our masterpiece, except for the fact that our kitty is evil and is missing half of it's tail.
So we were doing a little drinking and carving... we had to do SOMETHING crazy this weekend! ;)

Anyway, after the pumpkin was carved and dinner was cooked, we baked some Halloween cookies and chowed down on the candy that was left over from the Trick or Treaters!
We had a lot leftover, since ZERO kids came to our door! RUDE! Oh well, more Kit Kat's for me...

There was also lots and lots of Vampire Cabernet involved as well!
All in all a pretty successful holiday and I don't even have a hangover to whine about! My very first grown-up Halloween! Let's hope it's another 9 years before it happens again... I kid, I kid! ;)


  1. Sounds like a fun and relaxing weekend :)

    We didn't have any trick-or-treaters either! I guess I'll be taking a lot candy to school with me to give to some kiddos!

    Hope you have a great week!

  2. Happy Halloween! Mine was pretty similar, with taking it easy and most of the kids passing our house by, haha! Glad you had fun regardless!
