Six more days until Halloween, the best holiday EVER! I know, I know, I am crazy. People have told me that a lot growing up. But, I am the total embodiment of an October baby. I love Autumn, I love Halloween, and I love EVERYTHING spooky.
This year, the Hunky Engineer and his family so kindly put up with my creepy antics and did all sorts of fun October things with me! Let me give you a quick run-down:
- For my birthday, we picked pumpkins and carved them. My boyfriend’s family had NEVER done it before, so it was a big deal. Of course, the experience was ruined a little bit…since we had to buy carving pumpkins at Walmart, ha-ha. The Hunky Engineer and I still have yet to finish our pumpkin, we will be getting to that this Friday (poor guy has no mouth).
- The weekend AFTER my birthday, we went on a group trip to Dorney Haunt, which is arguably my favorite Halloween experience to attend. During the day, you can go enjoy the park’s attractions. Then, when the sun goes down, the freaks come out, and the whole park is flooded with creepy costumes and haunted attractions. Dorney added quite a few new elements this year, and they were fantastic. However, the best part was hearing my boyfriend’s sister’s terrified screams during UrgetScare, the first haunt we went to!
- Next weekend, we will be going to Shocktober Fest! I have never been and I absolutely CANNOT WAIT! My boyfriend’s family may not celebrate birthdays, but he has certainly gone out of his way to make mine the best yet!
I am sad that my favorite time of the year is coming to an end, so I am going to try and absorb as much as possible over the next week!
More to come on my Halloween costume (oh yeah, I’m 22 years old and still dress up, get on my level)
Until next time!
