Perfect Pumpkin People

So, today at the office I "helped" carve a pumpkin. Really, I dug the seeds and gross stringy stuff out of the middle of the pumpkin. It was, in fact, my first time doing this. Not sure how that happened since I love pumpkins. I love how they are orange. I love pumpkin pie. I love that seeing a pumpkin means that fall is here. Pumpkins are great. I got most of the innards out and then experienced pumpkin carvers suggested toasting the seeds. Okay. Really yummy.

We were carving a pumpkin to enter the office building carving contest. Yea, we did NOT win. I knew that it would be a long shot but enjoyed participating in this new pumpkin creating thing.

Next year, I think I'll try this the office and at home.

Fall Festival @ Annunciation

So right down the street from us is a huge Catholic Church and over the weekend, they had their Annual Fall Festival. Mr. Wonderful and I decided to check it out so next year when the baby girl is running around, we know where to take her to have some fun. It was quite the operation. They had tons of food. I tried a Goop Dog for the first time. They raffled off a Hybrid car. There were funnel cakes which we avoided somehow. Phew! We watched a little football in their sports bar tent...What a great idea! Their craft area was ok. The main action was the kids area and the food.
Baby girl loved just people watching and being outside. It was a beautiful day so I'm glad Mr. Wonderful went even though he was recovering from his trip to Gainesville where the Gators beat LS WHO? Hahaha...
I love, love, love the fall even in Florida!
Worst thing that happened over the weekend...The Dolphins lost by one point. My brother forgot to tell Mr. Wonderful that they were going to lose AND baby girl didn't wear her cheerleading outfit. I think it would've helped 'em. Next week!

GO GATORS! (for Mr. Wonderful and Chaz)

Mr. Wonderful visited old stomping grounds with his friend Chaz.
Thankfully the Gators won! GooooOOoOOoOooooo Gators!!

Smid's Visit!

B O W L I N G ! ! !

the scene of the crime

my official team cup that i made for myself. i know...i got skills!

my shoes...trying not to think about how
many feet have been in these before mine...FOCUS!

the birthday cake for our co-workers. one actually showed up but i'm always glad to celebrate a birthday and love when the cake is all themed up like the one above. :-) total cheese, i am.

action-packed fun going on!

Bowling with the Boys -- Ok. So above are some pics from Friday's Bowling Outing at work. The immediate above is my bowling team -- JA & RC are great guys but stinky bowlers or maybe it was just me and my lack of skills. There were four teams total and we came in 4th place so needless to say, we didn't win gas cards or anything. Maybe next time. I did, however, gain a knee injury which is absolutely ridiculous since it's freakin' BOWLING!

HHN 2008 - scared of that...

So we checked out Halloween Horror Nights this year. Heather, Best Brother, Mr. Wonderful, Gordon and Chris had a good time. The scare houses weren't too bad...The chainsaw guy on the street and the Maplecroft section was the scariest in my opinion. Glad I was there so they could enjoy the evening making fun of how scared I am of strange characters jumping out at me.
