Fall 2016: Pumpkin Carving

Happy Friday and Halloween weekend everyone!

A couple of weeks ago my boyfriend and I went searching through town pumpkin hunting. We found a large stand outside someones house and picked up at least 8 pumpkins, various types and sizes. I was being quite impatient about carving them so we decided to last weekend on Saturday night (this post is a bit late). Looking at my pumpkins this morning I wish I would have waited till late this week or this weekend to carve them since they are starting to cave in already! Although we had a blast drinking and carving pumpkins last weekend, so it was worth it!

 

As you can see my boyfriend was very serious about carving! I on the other hand was a bit wine tipsy and had quite the outfit going on! Don’t ask me about my crazy hair do haha! I was trying to prevent it being covered in pumpkin guts especially since this pumpkin was rotten already, hence why I’m wearing gloves!

Can you believe it? I picked out a rotten pumpkin from the pumpkin stand- I have never done that before! Let me tell you, it was a horrible rancid smell while carving it! I was able to keep myself composed and not throw up, even though I came close a few times.

So here are the results of our pumpkin carving! Soo much fun, a great messy fall date night for any couple!

  1. Wow! Great job! I did not get to carve a pumpkin this year….I painted a mini one (looks like a hot mess – wine tipsy over here too). I am very impressed with both of your skills.
