Pumpkin decor

This year I opted out of carving a pumpkin, even though I love baked seeds I didn't feel like making a mess and having to deal with all of the guts that comes with it. If you are familiar with the show Breaking Bad then you know all about Heisenberg.

Ryan traced the outline and I colored it in (my outline looked nothing like the picture.) I found out if you use a dry erase marker on pumpkins it wipes right off so that was really cool experimenting with that! Since I didn't carve the pumpkin I increased it's life span to Thanksgiving!

Happy Halloween!

Thank you Google

Harvest collection

I was not impressed with the Sam Adams Harvest beer collection. The only 2 I really cared for were pumpkin and Octoberfest. The others were not worth buying. One flavor I threw away both bottles because it tasted like trees. I do not recommend this package of beer.

12 bottles for about $13

Didn't taste the hazelnut until after I swallowed but it was a nice after taste

Perfect fall seasonal

Tasted like a pine tree thew up in my mouth. Had 2 sips and poured it down the drain

OK for a dark beer, Guinness is better
Favorite fall cider. Tastes like all the flavors of fall in one and so good

Spooky mantel

I hate working with fake spider webs, their messy and never come out the way I have planned but it's that time of year and it was about time I made the mantel a little more Halloween themed. After putting it up in 2 different areas of the house I was done. I'll save the bag for next year. 

More pumpkins, spider web and a little re-arranging 

The coolest little gourds

Baby pumpkins

If you need big pumpkins, $2.99 at Aldi!

It's hard to tell, but the painting and tree have spider webs too

Happy Halloween from Barney

Pumpkin patch

There isn't much to say about church pumpkin patches other than I love going to them and picking out little gems to decorate the house! As you know, I love a good pumpkin. :)

What a good selection of gourds 

All things mini

They had wagons where you could put all of your pumpkins (this is not mine)

Favorite time of the year

They had a lot of huge pumpkins at this patch

Perfect for carving

Last week Ryan and I went to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal. We had been only a few times before so we knew what we were getting into. This year was all about the TV show The Walking Dead; there were zombies everywhere! We only did 3 houses, even though their different themes its the same thing in general. Someone pops out to scare you and your heart is racing once you walk out of the house.

Besides the houses we watched The Rocky Horror Makeup Show and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure which were both great!! If you've never seen the Bill and Ted show it's all about making fun of celebrities and dancing to the popular songs that are on the radio right now.

*Sorry for the bad dark pictures, but it was hard getting good shots in the dark

Dt Disney

Over the weekend I met up with my family at Downtown Disney to look at the sites and catch up. It was a beautiful day and not too hot. Their usual fall decor was all around and I just loved the combination of sun flowers and pumpkins. We had dinner at the famous Earl of Sandwich, I've heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Out of all of the times I've been to Downtown Disney I've never once stepped foot inside that place. I will defiantly be going back!

Giant Mickey pumpkin

Pretty flowers and pumpkins

Great hot sandwiches and my dad photo bombing. hahaha (hi dad!)

Holiday turkey. This is what left overs after Thanksgiving looks like in a sandwich

Fall is my favorite time of the year

1. I got my traditional blue hand print at Blue Man this week. Everyone who works there has one up on the wall

2. Starbucks had a "pay it forward" program towards the end of the week where if you bought the persons coffee behind you you got yours for free. I was shocked when the person told me that the lady in front of me bought my stuff...until I found out about this special deal going on. It was still nice, but to know that she only did it to get a free drink..blahh

3. Sarah Brightman performed Tuesday night at Amway, I had worked one of her concerts before but forgot what kind of music it was, Italian opera. So it wasn't my cup of tea. I didn't realize she is 53 until looking for a picture for the post, she looks great!

I'm excited for the first Magic preseason game tonight!!!!

Halloween inspired mantel & house deocr

First you may be wondering about the fine quality of these pictures, well I finally bought some new batteries and used a real camera instead of my phone. I'm kind of embarrassed for all the other pictures I've posted now. This week I got some mini pumpkins and decorated a couple rooms in the house. First being the mantel, I had everything else so now it looks like October!

I also put some pumpkins near the TV in the living room, kitchen and one in our room. Including the big pumpkins we now have 10 total throughout the house. I plan on going to a pumpkin patch soon so get ready for more pumpkin posts. I just love fall :)

Halloween mantel 1. In a couple of weeks I'm going to add some spider webs

Just added some pumpkins and spooky things to the existing fall decor

This just shows how messy the hay is. Every time it gets touched it makes a mess

Mini pumpkins next to a big TV

The kitchen is also festive

Can you spot the pumpkin in our room?

I saved this subway art from last year, it's my absolute favorite
