My job is weird

The other day, I dressed up like I worked at a winery like so....

And started photographing a wine bottle and glasses like they were for a promotional shots...

So that I had a cover for why I was sitting outside taking pictures so that I was in place to capture a SURPRISE PROPOSAL! (The boyfriend/fiance hired me)

She said yes :)

Later that day, I was having boyfriend spot check my newborn blankets for, um, bodily excretions and when he pointed a particular spot out I said, "Oh, that's just umbilical cord blood." His face reminded me of what a weird job I have.

Last Halloween Post

I bet I'm the only blogger still writing about Halloween but I just had to belatedly share my sibling's amazing costumes!

Brutharr went as Finn from Adventure Time!

Littlest-Little went as Sage from The False Prince...

Here's The False Prince for reference...

Bigger-Little went as ....

A carrot!

(My costume is in this post)

Also, you guys saw my finished pumpkin but not the one I wanted to carve ... I drew this out and then realized it was kinda impossible to cut without being really creative and having more precise cutting tools...

What I actually carved...

Much more simple!

What did you guys dress as?

Random Pictures

I don't often take random pictures since ya know, taking pictures is my full time job. And I kinda miss it so here are the three random photos I took in the last month

Happy Day-After-Halloween! I'm the worst blogger...

On Wednesday night, [Lisa] came over and carved pumpkins with me!

I don't know about you guys but we both love the oopey goopey mess of carving pumpkins...


This was her pumpkin...
Pinterest-worthy, right?

And this was mine...
Brutharrr described it as 'derpy'
Last night, I actually baked the seeds for the first time using [this recipe] and they came out GREAT! 

We had 3 friends that joined us for passing out candy and the seeds were all gone by the end of the night. 

I don't know why but staying home, passing out candy was a built up fantasy in my head. I always used to Trick or Treat and when I grew out of that, I was going to Halloween parties. It feels very adult to get to pass out candy and we turned down other plans to do so. Apparently our neighborhood is notoriously lacking in children trick or treating and it was drizzling last night but we did get three groups of kids and I melted every time! It was everything I dreamed it would be.

I didn't have a costume as of yesterday morning so I just picked up some wings and antennae and when I got home, I realized I had the perfect skirt!

And a throwback to a costume of yesteryear...
Looks like I've been doing the same eye makeup forever!
How was your Halloween? What did you go as? Did you get a lot of Trick or Treaters?
