And just like that…Halloween is over and it is November! I shared some really special, memorable Halloween experiences with you last week, so I thought it would be fun to share with you the new memories! This year was extra festive because we actually had cooler weather, with a ton of rain! It made for a mystical, traditional Halloween! As Winifred Sanderson would say, “It’s just a bunch of hocus pocus!”
Pumpkin carving is an annual tradition for us and we spent all Friday evening carving, watching our favorite movies and eating kettle corn! My husband decided to do a bulldog and I am literally blown away by how awesome he did!! Mine was more basic…
You know how Ruger is addicted to pumpkin? Well, he spent most of the evening licking our jack o lanterns! Halloween dawned rainy, misty and cloudy which created the perfect ambiance. It cleared up a little though, which was perfect for the trick or treaters!
My neighborhood is such a fun place to be for Halloween. I talked about how people drive from all over to walk around for candy, and this year was even more epic. We had people parked all up and down our road and everywhere you could see where kids in costume. Just like on Hocus Pocus! It was so fun! We have to buy a ton of candy to keep up with everyone.
Last year Ruger was a pumpkin, but he was WAY to big to fit into that costume again. I revealed his costume in my October Newsletter (which comes out again soon!!! Sign up below 🙂 ). He was a Dallas Cowboy! (and totally not happy about it lol).
I couldn’t get a picture of him with my real camera because he was way too excited about all the trick or treaters, so I snapped this with my phone. Believe it or not, this is was my jersey a few years back when Marian Barber still played for Dallas. It was pretty tight around his shoulders…let’s be honest, he is bigger than me!
We ended the night with some hot chocolate, cozy blankets, candles and movies! I can’t believe it is now November, but I am also so excited! The holiday season is upon us now! I have some really fun stuff coming up over the next few months that I can’t wait to share!
To celebrate the month of November, I teamed up with some bloggers for a really special and fun giveaway. I love contributing to these giveaways because they are such great products and it totally brightens up someone’s day when they win 🙂
This Kate Spade Wristlet in a chic green is so adorable! It’s big enough to hold a phone, small enough to wear on your wrist as a wallet or even a small clutch. Just remember, we do verify entries and if you enter, you must live in the United States (I know! It’s sad but shipping is just an issue). I can’t tell you how excited I am that someone is going to own this!
