This Saturday has felt very holiday-esque. Technically, it was a holiday –
but I was feeling more Haloweenie. Perhaps because this has been looping through my head all day?
The husband was right, I am now a total “Nightmare Before Christmas” addict!
The day actually started rather early for a Saturday; I signed up to volunteer at a local health fair today and my shift started at 8am. Milkshake for breakfast? Don’t mind if I do.
I made my first pumpkin pie through a straw of the season. Just look at that perfect pumpkin pudding color –
I was pretty jazzed about it, clearly.
My volunteer shift was nice and easy, mostly stuffing gift bags and greeting people. A lot of the other volunteers bailed so I ended up getting some one on one time with the president of the club; she is a senior in the program I hope to get into so it was great to hear her advice.
Pretty soon the husband picked me up and we headed to the cafe in Wegmans to get our study on. And our lunch on.
Scoop of buffalo and curry chicken salads,
and some green beans and roasted veggies.
I was still feeling super hungry after lunch but I didn’t want to waste any more time eating so instead I bought a coffee.
Half regular and half decaf pumpkin pie with skim milk.
We got a couple solid hours of work done too. And the grocery shopping too. Get excited about my dinner posts next week – I’m doing “Sandwich Week” and it’s going to be a lot of fun.
Not so fun? Our apartment is a frigid 64*. I drank a honey vanilla chamomile tea to warm up while I studied.
We had pumpkin pasta leftovers for dinner.
I swear, this stuff is even more amazing the 2nd day.
We ate an early dinner because just after 6 we piled into the car. We had season tickets to Darien Lake Amusement Park and today was the last night of Fright Night.
Adam and I ate a Divine milk chocolate hazelnut bar during the drive.
And I snacked on a serving of Halloween jujus while we explored the “horror.”
(Please excuse the terrible cell phone photos) There wasn’t a lot to it, but Fright Night ended up being a lot of fun.
Our favorite was the haunted house; I don’t scare easily, but they definitely startled me a bunch of times.
The real fun though was the 20minutes we wasted in the parking lot looking for our car 😉
Have you been to any haunted houses this season?
