“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Great Pumpkin weekend

Hi everyone!
How was your weekend?
Mine was awesome.
It started with dinner out on Wednesday,
then we stopped at a pumpkin patch afterwards
 and bought a few over priced pumpkins..
Helena got a chance to visit the mini petting zoo,
So it was worth it.

Then on Thursday
We drove up to Tempe to see my daughter and my niece
to celebrate
 Great Pumpkin Night
and guess what??

The Great Pumpkin
brought me gifts too!

an incredible Frankenstein bag filled with a bunch of goodies!
A stack of spell books cookie jar,
some warm fuzzy socks

 A crystal ball necklace....

 Ouija board planchette earrings...

A gorgeous fleece throw blanket from 
'The book of life' movie...

And this delicious smelling shower gel/lotion gift set,
cause the Great Pumpkin knows I love smelling yummy:)
There was also a bag
 of sugar free chocolate covered peanuts
 that rapidly disappeared  before it could be photographed.

We drove home Saturday and I created this canvas
as a tribute to my parents for Dia de los muertos...

Most of Sunday I spent lying in bed watching 
a marathon of the Gilmore Girls on netflix.
It's been great.
The weather is really cooling down and it puts me in a good mood.

I'll be back here in a few days...
I'm off to buy a cup of caramel coffee!

Have a great week.
