Anyone order a disco-ball pumpkin?
Did I mention how much I absolutely love Halloween?! It’s seriously my favorite day of the year. Why can’t costumes be accepted more on a regular basis? Like, hey I want to be a mermaid today (or Ronald McDonald Trump), and it’s all good cause no one would care. Well that’s why I love living in SF because there’s ALWAYS a reason to sport a costume. But Halloween IS around the corner, so this past weekend was spent with friends doing what BASIC people love to do best in October: watch Hocus Pocus, drink RIDICULOUS scary-themed red wine, and carve pumpkins. I got to do it twice! And I’m not ashamed… #basichalloween

In years past I have always carved some sort of cat in my pumpkin. The most elaborate pumpkin I’ve ever carved was a profile of a unicorn WITHOUT a pattern. That was intense you guys. This year I opted for the disco ball pumpkin because #whynot and I’ve never seen one before. ALSO we bought a crazy battery operated pumpkin carving POWER SAW because ain’t nobody got time to carve pumpkins anymore folks!

I know that I am in my 30s and still thoroughly enjoy Halloween activities, and I will continue to do so until I’m much more of an old lady. One day I will travel to the biggest pumpkin patch I’ve ever seen and do a full on costume photo shoot, that I will indeed turn into a calendar and can sell. Until then, I’m gonna keep doing me and continue to be the biggest Halloween + costume nerd that I know.
