I got sucked into the pumpkin madness this weekend.
It all started on Friday with pumpkin pie. Then I baked pumpkin muffins. There was leftover pumpkin from the muffins, so I decided to make pumpkin lattes (so good… recipe from here). Then Tom had pumpkin beer. By Sunday, I just wanted the pumpkin smell to be gone from our house.
We had a nice weekend. We introduced the boys to MadLibs. They thought it was the funniest thing ever. No Mad Lib is complete until you use “boogies” as a noun.
Tom and Biggest went out to breakfast together. It’s kinda their tradition, so Littlest and I went to Taekwondo and stopped at the library. He was excited to check out 2 video games. I was excited because I found a cookbook that combines 2 of my favorite things, Asian food + Pickles!
The boys invited friends over and had a massive nerf gun war. I hid out upstairs and cleaned out closets while they tore up the downstairs. Didn’t I tell you that my life is full of exciting stuff?
On Sunday, we went on our annual costume finding mission. Biggest already has his costume (thankfully!) but Littlest still needed one. We went to THREE places and he could not find anything that he liked. Finally, we went home and looked online and he found something that he liked right away. Annoyingly, it was sold at the first store we went to!!! I had to drive back to get it because I am too cheap to pay shipping for something located 3 miles away!!! Blergh!!! And can I just say that I am so sick of slutty Halloween costumes? I saw slutty Harry Potter AND slutty Thing 1 and Thing 2 in the store! Whatever happened to those clever and funny homemade costumes people used to wear, like Cereal Killer and Dirty Laundry?! Someone will probably make a slutty Cereal Killer costume now. Ugh. So annoyed.
But on a happier note, there’s this! It is quite certainly NOT slutty cross stitch!
