pumpkin carving!

So yesterday, Matt and I decided to ditch work and homework (well he ditched work and I didn't do any homework) and we went to The Pumpkin Station in Mission Valley. It was so much more than just a pumpkin patch, it had rides for little kids and a petting zoo :) We bought two pumpkins, a big one and a little one. Then we went to the Halloween store, but Matt didn't find anything he wanted for his costume, so we went to Wal-Mart. I got red fabric to make a cape for my Snow White costume and white fabric for my Cleopatra costume. Matt got a padded chest protector for his Jack Bauer costume, and he figured out he wanted to be a Mexican wearing a poncho and a sombrero for his other costume. Overall, a very succesful trip to Wal-mart. We went back to Matt's and started carving. Originally, Matt tried to make Larry the Cucumber from Veggie came out okay. We decided to take a break from carving and roasting pumpkin seeds. Last night, we saw Paranormal Activity....let me just say, it was SUPER CREEPY (I was afraid to go to bed that night). Anyways, we got back and Chris, Matt's roommate, convinced us to go to Vons and buy more pumpkins to carve. So of course, we stayed up carving pumpkins until super late, but they came out wonderful. Matt changed his original Larry to Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc and carved a new Larry. Chris made the Abraham Lincoln, and I did the other little two :) I just love Halloween!!

Haunted Trails

Last night, my sorority had a date dash at the Haunted Trails in Balboa Park. It pretty much scared my pants off. Some guy with a chain saw chased us around. There were creepy hillbillies that tried to get me to touch his bloody finger. Guys in masks jumped out at us on a bus. It was an awesome experience, but there were some blood-curdling screams. We walked around in a group of 10-ish and the scary people always know who to go's like they can sense fear...or tell which ones are the chickens from our screams haha. Afterwards, we headed to in-and-out and hung out with some of the new girls in my sorority. Overall, a very successful night :)

Sorry, we couldn't take pictures

new to-do list

sooooo although we did not complete our summer to-do list i have decided that margaret and i will create a new list of things to do for the fall. this list will be attainable and have things that will not question my manhood (ex: picking wildflowers). in the near future margaret and i will sit down and compile another list for us to tackle most likely before we adjourn SD for christmas break. how long this list will be we do not know, but we shall complete this one and make sure we keep all of you updated with pictures and stories to tell!
