Halloween? Boo!

Hello lovelies, how was your Halloween weekend? Mine was rather tame. I rue my college days and the spectacularly fun times we had around Halloween. The costumes, the parties, dancing all night with all my favorite friends… Back then, Halloween wasn’t a one-night celebration. It was a three-day phenomenon—an extended holiday of epic proportions.

I suppose life in “the real world” is partially to blame. Boo. I can’t believe I’m going to be twenty-five years old in less than two months, but that’s a post for another day. Before I go on moaning and groaning about these creaky old bones of mine, here are some photos of my weekend with Cookie.

Carved pumpkins

My boyfriend and I carved pumpkins. Can you tell which one I made?

I made pumpkin beer bread. I'm now obsessed with beer bread. Post coming soon!

I decked out my table with mini pumpkins! Have you ever seen anything like them?

Cookie in what would have been her Wonder Woman outift... but I never finished it. Fail.

Pumpkin custard. Enough said.

I want to hear about your Halloween festivities! Did you dress up and go out? Or stay home and munch on Halloween treats?

    Thanks for the comments, Molly, Kirsty and Degaine! I must agree, Cookie is awfully cute. She’s snoozing on the couch next to me now. I used a picture of her fur for the header on this blog.

    To answer Molly’s question, Cookie is a mystery mutt. I adopted her when she was a year old; she came with nothing more than her name! Someday I’ll splurge on dog DNA testing because the suspense is killing me. Silly but true.

    both pumpkins are fantastic in their own way, but i would have to guess yours is the one with the perfectly carved diamonds (love the pattern btw!). :D cookie looks so cute in her costume. if beer bread is anything like soda bread, then count me in!

    Hey! Your blog is really cute, I love the script titles. This was my first Halloween out of college and I reallllly miss the week long parties and next year I am going to have to have my own week long celebrations because 1 night isn’t gonna cut it!!

      Hi Sharilyn! That bread is a riff on the basic beer bread you can find here. It’s been a while, but I think I just used pumpkin ale and maybe added some grated cheddar cheese? It didn’t taste a lot like pumpkin. Here’s my more traditional pumpkin bread.
