So I'm not a big Halloween person ... go ahead, make your judgments ... it's just not my thing. I think the costumes are fun, and the candy is without a doubt a real TREAT (see what I did there?) but the scary stuff is just not . my . thing . 

So now that we've established that, let me tell you what DOES peak my interest ... pumpkin carving. But it has now reached a whole other level! Without going into a long shpeeeel (that's a word, right?) I present to you a lookbook of one of our local park's presentation of pumpkin carvings .... The Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular! Over 5,000 pumpkins, carved, etched, and glowing throughout a 1/4 mile of the park... Let's just get to some photos now shall we!?
From your average joe carvings, to the absolute most unique... 
We easily found two of our favorites, along with an entire section I didn't want to leave...
..... Yes! Christmas! And there were even snow flakes in the midst of it all. *sigh*

But honestly, the amount of pumpkins around this park was nothing I've ever seen before! Truly incredible.
Although it was a long night and the line was out of this world (it took 2 hours to walk that 1/4 mile), but it was well worth the wait! And thankfully, it was NOT a school night. ;) ...yes, both asleep.

Yea, I totally just hash tagged my post title... #sorrynotsorry ...but I promise the entire entry will not be like that. Just trying to sum up how this is going to go. Life has been a bit crazy {broken record over here}, but I am living up to my word that I have not completely given up on the bloggy world.

One of my biggest reasons for falling behind is because THIS sort of happened...
Yes! We are officially MOVED IN!! And let me just say it's been nothing short of this...
But not a day goes by that I'm not grateful for our beautiful home, so I digress. ;)

Also in the midst of all the moving chaos, we went on a trip...
Enjoyed our annual Harvest Homecoming festival... 
...of course we got our dumplings to-go!

And then my husband and I set out on another trip with our two dearest friends, Tammy and Mike!!! Remember them? ;) this time it was just for the grown ups!
...and we kind of got to see Brett Eldredge LIVE one random night. Sweeeeet!

Rather than bore you with photos of loading and unloading boxes, I'll leave this as the best summary of my life thus far. 

Stay tuned!! ;)
