Halloween recap

Nick and I had our real Halloween experience with fear and fright on Friday night when we ventured out with friends to some very scary haunted houses.

Then last night, Halloween night, I spent far too much time having lots of fun with dry ice.

Have you ever played with this stuff?

I personally think it's awesome.

Besides the time I spent with the dry ice, we also handed out candy to trick-or-treaters, Nick carved a pumpkin...

and I successfully baked pumpkin seeds for once. Anyone remember last year's failed attempt?

All a glow - he did a fantastic job!

Lastly, I had too many comments and emails asking where the "I Love You" hand came from featured in our master bedroom post to not address it.

TJ Maxx of course!

They had lots of other hands doing other things, not really sign language per se {or flipping the bird for those of you whose mind I know was wondering} but I picked this one to surprise my husband. He wasn't as excited to open it up as I wanted him to be - which I sort of understand when it's all white and kind of looks a bit "corpse-ish" when you first see it. But it brings up lots of wonderful memoried of us flashing this sign as we parted or just in times when it wasn't appropriate to speak but we felt the urge to communicate our love.

Anyway, I love it and I'm glad you do too.
Those of you who were looking for it, I believe I saw it at Home Goods as well.

I'm off to east Kentucky to work a few days and luckily using the occasion to visit with my parents tonight =)

Have a great week!

  5. OMG I LOVE THE HAND. T and I do that all the time if we are in a room but not next to each other. Or once in awhile when we are laying other and neither of us wants to talk. We have a collague of "us" pictures up in B/W and I put each of our hands with the "i love you" sign.

  6. Dry ice is amazing stuff! And so fun to play with!! Looks like a fun eve!

  7. I wish we could have gone to the haunted houses with you all! We couldn't get a baby sitter that late tho. Oh well... there's always next year!
