Pump up the Pumpkins!

Say hello to my maracas! I guess I have a lot of catching up to do with outfit posts—or any post for that matter! I’m glad that the fall weather finally kicked in and I’m now able to wear my beloved sweaters and layers! I’ve been really into clothing with a lot of volume lately (my hair doesn’t need any more). I just bought three to-sweat-for, over-sized sweaters last weekend, one of which I am wearing in these photos. I’ve also been toning down my wardrobe’s colors from bright pastels to neutrals as the season gets darker and colder. I’m not sure how long I can keep up with wearing neutrals. I just love the splash of colors!Last weekend was just a ton of fun. My husband Rob and I went on a haunted hayride at night and a normal hayride in the daytime with some friends, and then maneuvered through an eagle-shaped corn maze and picked up pumpkins to carve at a farm for the little get-together we had at our place. It was sad that not one trick-or-treater came by our house so none of our candy was given away. As non-sweet eaters (trust me, we LOVE sweets like everyone else but are trying to avoid them), we just don’t know what to do with all our candy. I’m thinking maybe the sweet scavenging scoundrels didn’t stop by our place because we didn’t decorate outside (the uncut Amazon grass should have been enough decoration!). Maybe I should give the candy away on the blog? Haha. Above, you’ll find “Corn on the Rob” and below, you’ll find the result of our carved pumpkin masterpieces! Corry had girl lips on hers, Dave’s was inspired by Spongebob, Ray’s was a cat because he’s a cat lover and sadly isn’t too warm around our dog, mine was the cyclops, and my husband Rob had the pumpkin with the “lazy” eye.

I couldn’t resist posting this photo of our dog which I took a few minutes ago while walking him. This ball of curly white fur is Bobby the bichon! He sticks out right now because it’s autumn. Wait till I take another picture in winter!

By the way, today is the last day to enter the Christa-Taylor giveaway! Also, my friend Victoria is hosting a contest for modest outfits that will end in 3 days! Make sure to enter that too (incentives: it’s her birthday and there will be a package filled with goodies)!
