define jack-o-lantern.

last year we had a halloween clue party.
(my favorite halloween theme ever.)
and this was our brilliant alternative to carving a pumpkin.
this year i need another excuse, because once again i have no desire to endure that slimy mess.
and no kids to make me feel bad about it.
i'm a party pooper i know.


  1. Okay I just stumbled across your blog and I LOVE IT :)
    p.s. your wedding dress was amazing!

  2. What a fun party! I love it, and so perfect for Halloween. And I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that is not a fan of the slimy pumpkin guts. I make my husband scoop them all out, but I still go through them to get the seeds to roast them. Roasted pumpkin seeds are worth it, I think! :) You could just paint the jack-o-lantern face on? Or host a pumpkin carving contest where you are the judge and supply the pumpkins so you get to keep them? You'd have to give away good prizes or something.... :)

  3. oh alicia, welcome! and how very sweet of you to say such nice things!!

    sarah, it really was a perfect halloween theme. and i am consoled just knowing that i am not the only one who does not delight in such things. :) i'm embarrassed to say i've never tried a pumpkin seed. after this i just might!


Tell me what you think about that...
