Halloween Memories!

What a fun halloween it was this year. I carved some pumpkins for the first time in forever and i felt so domesticated that i just had to toast those pumpkin seeds as well.

Super easy to do by the way. You just soak and clean the seeds, dry the access water with a cloth, lay them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, throw on some salt, and bake them in the oven at 425 for an hour. 

Easy peasy, pumpkins seedsy!

I had this full on desire to dress for the weather this year, when trying to decide my costume... maybe it's just a sign of my age, but less fabric on your costume means more chills when you're out and about!

So i had rediscovered the fabulous Twin Peaks this year and wanted to express my full on love for it through my halloween spirit! So i went to the biggest park i could find in the city and went searching for a log... i got all bundled up in a big sweater and long skirt... and then for the rest of the party-town night i carried my log around with tender loving care. Yes, i went out as the log lady. 

"I carry a log - yes. Is it funny to you? It is not to me."
