Happy Halloween!!!!

I’m so happy I got to be home for our very first halloween in our new house. Even though I only had a few days to decorate, I made the most of my time I think.

This was the very first time boyrobot and I carved pumpkins. We had so much fun doing it that we decided we are definitely going to throw a pumpkin carving party next year!

I chose a simple design for my first pumpkin. Does it make you L O L??


Boyrobot decided to do a SF Giants one since they are in the world series and he is a huge Giants fan…go Giants!!


We were left with a bunch of pumpkin seeds so I made some Spiced Pumpkin Seeds. So easy and very tasty!!


I bought some orange-y flowers for our dinner table vase and some mini pumpkins because they are so cute and only 69 cents from Trader Joe’s!.



When I was younger and went trick or treating, I really hated how pretty much everybody would get the same candy. Do I really want 20 tootsie rolls or 20 of those mini chocolate things? So I decided to raid the japanese and chinese candy aisles at the local asian markets.

Strawberry milk pops, lime chews, milk candy


We got a ton of different weird fruit flavored candy. Things you won’t find at your local supermarket! And at World Market, we bought a bag of gummy brains and vampire teeth because we love all things gummy! The one on the right was pumpkin flavored jelly! It’s seasonal so I had to buy some. :)


We also got a variety pack of regular sized candy bars for the less adventurous kiddies :P


Here is what our front porch looks like (sans spiderwebs since this was taken before we put them up)


And our spiderwebs that we just put up


I will have this playing too. Boyrobot thinks it sounds too scary…but isn’t that the point of Halloween?? ha ha.

We are having a few friends over so I also made some apple cranberry cider for us to drink while we watch our scary movies….

Happy Halloween everyone!!

YAY you made it back for halloween!!

I’m so sad. I don’t think anyone trick or treats in apartments :(:(:(. We decorated our door with cute greeting cards AND we carved pumpkins and put it out on our patio thing. I WANT TRICK OR TREATERS!! We bought a Costco sized bag of chocolates and as fun as eating it all by myself would be.. I want trick or treaters :(.

Your house is cute btw :) and I like the music.
