Happy Halloween! What is everyone doing to "celebrate" this year?
I'm really not a Halloween person. In fact, it's sort of my "dark day" of the year when I sit alone and sulk. I never really liked it, even as a kid, but since then I've had some pretty bad memories attached to it and so I've decided to just quit trying. I like handing out candy, though, so I did that until it started to rain.
In Minnesota, Halloween is usually pretty cold. Kids go out trick or treating wearing their winter jackets and so you can't really see their costumes. In fact, most kids don't even bother dressing up and just go out in their winter jackets. It's a little bit uninspiring but I still love handing out candy. It reminds me of how much fun my friends and I used to have going trick or treating, though we used to dress up more. Kids these days are too wimpy. Back in my day, we sucked it up and just walked faster.

I made a card for my boyfriend and painted a pumpkin. I don't like carving them because they never turn out well, so I've started just painting my pumpkins. You can't light them up inside but oh well, kids just want the candy anyway.

I'm off to eat some candy and watch TV! I love the Halloween episodes of My So-Called Life and Freaks & Geeks. This weekend I'm having scary movie night with some friends so I'm saving all the big Halloween movies till then! Stay safe and stay spooky xx

Haha, I love that card. Adorable. And painting a pumpkin is a really cool idea! I also love the Halloween episode of My So-Called Life--I'm gonna make sure to watch that this weekend.

Scary movie night sounds like a lot of fun! I'm a big Halloween fan. I can't believe the kids don't dress up very much anymore where you live. That sucks! Kids really are way too wimpy these days - but it's also the parents letting them be that way. Lame.
But anyway, I love how your painted pumpkin turned out and your ghost card is wonderful too!
