fall fun!

Picture overload! (As always, click to enlarge.)

Halloween is my favorite time of the year for lots of reasons, and today I will focus on two of them: holiday socks and pumpkin carving.

I have a thing for socks, and I happen to work at one of the best stores for awesome socks. So yesterday I went on a sock shopping spree. I held back on the Halloween socks because I'm hoping that n a few days when all the Halloween stuff goes on clearance the other ones I like will still be there. It was between candy corn, ghosts, and spiders. I held them behind my back and had Jay choose a hand, and we walked out with candy corn.

When I saw these next socks, I literally yelled out "PENGUIN SOCKS!" So you know I had to have them.

And bunnies wearing scarves and earmuffs? Of course I had to have them. For the record, I initially thought the earmuffs were headphones, and I thought DJ bunnies were hilarious. I still love the socks though.

There are also a few plain colored ones (black / orange and gray) and black & white polka dotted ones, but those didn't require photos.

Since I'm off today, Jay and I decided to carve pumpkins last night. For some reason (probably fiscal) we didn't carve any last year, and I didn't carve any while I lived in NYC. I don't actually remember the last time I carved a pumpkin, which is stupid because I LOVE carving pumpkins. I love the smell. I love the family time it leads to. I love eating pumpkin seeds. And even though I don't like slimy things, I for some reason love putting my hands in the gooey mess that is pumpkin guts.

See me concentrating?

That made these pumpkins

into these jack o'lanterns

ps - i'm really pissed off at blogger right now. It sucks balls for uploading photos, and apparently breaks people's computers. So I may be changing formats.
