I am so excited for tonight. I'm having our annual Halloween Movie Night where we mock bad movies and consume copious amounts of "vittles".
I had hoped to present you with a pumpkin of my own carving but alas, I was too late. I went to three grocery stores yesterday. Two had no pumpkins left and the last had pumpkins the size of squashes. You tell me how I'm supposed to carve a squash. Anyway, my ironic template will have to wait until next year. My roommate took pity on me though and carved a turnip I have named Stan. He's pictured up top.
I do have one treat to show you. I made these delicious gingerbread skeletons yesterday. They were a pain in my butt to make, bake and decorate but they look pretty adorable. Can't wait to devour them later.
I can't stay though, I have a costume to get into. For the first time in a long time I'm actually dressing up. I found some great old clothes at a local retro store for a 40s pinup girl. I found a great YouTube video with instructions on how to do my hair in a 40s style and spent several late nights fiddling with bobbypins. They are evil instruments of DOOM! and don't ever let anyone tell you differently.
I hope all of you have a great Halloween. I know I will!
