...just kidding. I am so excited!
Today I went with my grandma to Home Goods. Love that store. Inside they had one big row dedicated to Halloween decor. It made me so excited and happy.
I have loved fall ever since I was a little girl. Back to school, fall shopping, pumpkin desserts, closer to Christmas, etc. It's just the best. I think of myself more as a fall girl because I have brown hair. That probably doesn't make sense to anyone. Is it one of those things that just make sense in my head? Probably. Blondes= Summer, brunettes= Fall.
When I see that actually written out, it really makes no sense.
I've been making a mental list of all the things I want to do this Fall. Many, to me, is three...because I have a baby and a husband, so a list of 10 would never be accomplished.
1. Make caramel apples (the good Rocky Mountain kind...not the sick kind with the peel-off and place-on caramel from the produce section).
2. Go to a corn maze. McKay and I have been talking about this since we were dating, yet we have never done it. My favorite field trip as a kid was always the corn maze one. Mostly because the farms usually had kittens.
3. Carve pumpkins. Last Halloween I tried to get McKay into the spirit! You know...go to the grocery store, walk over the mounds of pumpkins, select the perfect one, examine all sides, be so excited, buy it, take it home, bathe it, cut it, proudly display on porch.
No. We did none of those things.
Last year: Go to grocery store. Ali jumps on mound...
McKay: (In a hissing-whisper) Alllliiiiiiii....get downnnn! Oh. my. gosh.
Ali: McKay, get up here! Pick your pumpkin.
McKay: No. I'm not climbing up there. (he's mature.)
Ali: Okay, pick up a pumpkin and pose for a picture!
McKay: No. Okay...hurry.
Ali: So which pumpkin did you choose?
McKay: I don't know...this one. It doesn't matter.
Does that sound like a good pumpkin picking?
This year will be better.
McKay will climb the mounds!
