Happy obligatory holiday themed post Halloween!

My favorite thing about Halloween is visiting pumpkin patches, shoving all pumpkin flavored treats into my mouth, and see tiny humans dressed up being all cute and asking for candy.

I am not so much into the dressing up myself. I am not creative enough; which means I am lazy. But pumpkin patches, I do those. And I do them well.

Unfortunately, I do not carve well. I can do the traditional jack-o-lanternย face as well as the next person, but this year we painted our pumpkins instead. Read again: lazy. But then I scooped out all the pumpkin seeds and made a yummy snack, and felt that I had served Halloween well.

Next year though, pumpkins better watch out. I am going to carve the shit out of you! Which is my thought after each Halloween and then I shamefully fail.

This pumpkin would have cost us $30. After we left the pumpkin patch, we went to Ralph’s and bought a bigger one for $5. Cheap or smart. You decide. Maybe a little of both?

Unfortunately, the pumpkin patch we chose to go to seemed geared towards children only. I thought at least there would be some pumpkin treats or a haunted house. I would have even accepted a few games.

I suppose I am at that in between age, where, especially during holidays, some activities may be a bit awkward for adults without children. I’m not going to lie and say that waiting in lie to take a picture in the teepee with the other two year olds was a little less than uncomfortable. I pretended to be looking at something nearby until it was my turn. I’m pretty sure I cut a little kid off.

Honestly, Halloween just means that we are that much closer to Christmas. Tomorrow, November 1st, the first radio station in Sacramento switches over to 24 hour Christmas music. You bet your ass that is all I am listening to until December 26th.

  1. How cute! I love the mustard sweater and the polka dot skirt. I hate carving pumpkins (bah humbug, or whatever), but I enjoy doing it with my kids.

  2. Haha that creepy pumpkin with the wheat eyebrows is the best! I am also in that weird awkward stage as an adult with no children. Granted I am married, but we don’t have any nearby friends or family with kids… so it’s like what are we supposed to do? My solution was to savor my child-free years by going out with friends last weekend (see today’s post) but if I didn’t have that option I guess we would just sit at home? Part of my problem is that I LOVE to dress up, which makes it that much more awkward- I’m too old for slut-o-ween but I have no children to trick or treat with. Hmmm……

  8. Love the yellow sweater, this is the perfect Halloween post! I too went to a patch that seemed solely geared towards children- there was nothing to eat, which for me, can ruin a total experience haha. It was still fun traipsing through a corn maize, etc.
    Happy Halloween!

  12. Unlike your reader above – I don’t feel too old for “Slut-O-Ween”! And you, my dear, don’t need to dress up – not when you look as fresh and adorable as you do in black and orange! Happy Whore-o-weeeeen!

    Cute! I am so envious of your Halloween, visiting pumpkin patches and the like. I definitely think we miss out in the UK and here in the southern hemisphere it’s no better ๐Ÿ˜ฆ (perhaps because it’s getting warmer and is almost summer, it’s not taken off….still, I am jealous :)))

  32. Pumpkins!! I didn’t get to carve one this year, but I wanted to and now I’m sad. I’ll try to get to it next year! Also I really love this outfit. That sweater looks perfect layered over your little dotty dress. The color are great together.
