Halloween Babblings & A Giveaway!

Hi, I miss you.

I just wanted to say that I’ve been a little curt in comments lately or haven’t replied in some cases because I’ve been SWAMPED as hell. So if you haven’t gotten my normal “HEYZZZ WHAT’S UP!?” reply I do apologize. I’m just nutty around this time of year in my personal life, my work life, and my blog life. Fall/Holidays are always a nutty time of the year for everyone I’m sure.

But…my apologies…! I miss you guys and always love talking to you!

Happy Early Harvest! The Fall is here! My favorite time of the year! This weekend I’m headed to the Great Jack O’ Lantern Blaze plus apple and pumpkin picking. I hauled three massive pumpkins at Whole Foods recently and they didn’t last out a two week period, they rotted. Dude! So I do need to replenish and get a bunch more for my annual Halloween party!

P.S. The Blaze is awesome so if you’re in the New York area don’t miss it as the tickets sell out fast. It’s over 5,000 hand carved Jack O’ Lanterns….!

There are also tons of other great happenings in the Sleepy Hollow area around this time of the year that are very worth going to including Horseman’s Hallow, Irvin’s Legend, and more! I go to the events every single year and it never gets old….! And it really brings the spirit of the season!

You can visit www.hudsonvalley.org/events for more details!

And finally Blood Manor has a new venue this year which should be fun so if you’re within Manhattan it is WELL worth checking out…! We go every year and it just keeps getting freakier and freakier!

And with that I close this post with a giveaway of course….!

I hope you have a very Happy Weekend filled with apples, pumpkins, leaves, and maybe a little blood and gore! Let the Halloween fun begin with the very first weekend of October! I, for one, can’t wait!

    I LOVE this time of the year! It gets cooler and I can wear all those great sweaters (I hate when it is too hot outside, which is goo because I live in Québec and it gets freaking cold here in the winter but fall is just perfect). I ADORE halloween, maybe because it is my birthday! I am going to be 24 on october 31st and it is my last year in school so last birthday before becoming a real grown up!

    Eek! I can’t do haunted houses or creepy Halloweenie things – it scares me so badly. Last year I go to the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom, right? Sooo I am in there with my Mom and we’re talking completely grown adult and I’ve been on this ride before, well we get to the part when the “ghost” hitchhikes and when your doom buggy swivels there he is, right beside us … and I scream. Then I feel really stupid. Because I am THE ONLY screamer on the ride. Mom is busting up laughing and I feel dumber than dumb because I knew it was coming and it’s only an image.

    I saw these on my last ulta trip and was tempted because I am a huge blush fan.
