Halloween was a bit different for us this year. We celebrated with some friends the day before Halloween, and had early plans the day after Halloween, so the actual Halloween day was pretty chill.
On friday the 30th, we met up with some friends for lasagna and wine and some pumpkin carving at their house. We also played a TERRIBLE Jelly Belly game called BeanBoozled. There are 10 different colors of jelly beans, and 20 different flavors. So for example, you could pick a multi-colored jelly bean and it could be Stinky Socks or Tutti-Fruitti… You wouldn’t know until you bit into it. I used that an the example because it was the ABSOLUTE worst one!!! It was fun game, but oh so cruel!!
On Saturday we did some packing for our trip to Dallas as well as cleaned house…Once it was 6 o’clock, I started gearing up for the trick or treaters. Since it was our first Halloween in our new neighborhood, we didn’t really know what to expect. Our neighborhood has a ton of kids, but the terrain and lot sizes are not ideal for trick or treating. As it started to get dark and not one trick or treater had stopped by, I started to get a little worried that we weren’t going to have any. Just as I was about to give up, our first trick or treater came running up our driveway! Not long after that, a whole group of them pulled up on a rope lit trailer pulled by a Ranger. We had about 25 kiddos in total. It was so much fun seeing the costumes and meeting some of our neighbors… Although, I don’t remember anyone’s name! Afterwards, we all packed into the truck and headed North to stay with my parents for the night.
We left early the next morning from my parents house in Georgetown and drove to Dallas just in time to tailgate before the Cowboys/Seahawks game. Amazing tailgate, but a terrible game!… and I say that from both teams standpoints. We had a blast with our friends and can’t wait until our next tailgate/game. Driving up the morning of the game and then staying the night afterwards is definitely the way to do it!
I was all about the selfies on Sunday! haha It really was a great time… I think I might have enjoyed myself a little too much? YOLO, right?!?!
All in all, a really great weekend. I’m not sure how many more holiday’s we will be celebrating with just the two of us before little ones take over, but I sure am glad that we are living our adult lives, and have fun now, just the two of us. I know one day we won’t be able to have these crazy weekends in Dallas with Jell-O shots, flip cup, shot gunning beers, etc.
