Pumpkin Patch



Searching for the perfect pumpkin.
I found it!
American Eagle top, Joe's Jeans, Gap belt, Latico Bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses


Gabe and I finally made it to the pumpkin patch over the weekend and while we were certainly the oldest people there without children, we enjoyed it just the same. It felt festive and fun to dress in denim and plaid and pick out two pumpkins to carve this week. We plan on having a carving night tonight with It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown playing in the background and unlimited quantities of Halloween candy. How do you celebrate Halloween?

How fun! Sounds like the perfect into to Halloween :)

I'm sad. My parents bought pumpkins and I never got a chance to carve mine. Don't plan on seeing them until after Halloween so that's a bust :S

Have fun tonight!

Jen Watts said...

You are too cute as always!! I always carved my pumpkin watching Charlie Brown too!! Great tradition..

Bren said...

I haven't had time to go to the pumpkin patch this year, and sadly, I don't think it's going to happen. :( I did buy loads of halloween candy, baked my pumpkin cupcakes, and watched Charlie Brown tonight! My nephews are carving their pumpkins tomorrow. I have to pack for a work trip, but hopefully I'll have time to join in the carving. I won't even get to go trick or treating with them because I have to get on a plane Sunday night! But I will be in NY all week, so don't feel too bad for me. ;) I might have to do some bday shopping while I'm there!

xoxo,
Bren
