Five on Friday: Happy Halloween!

Today's Friday five are totally random, but that's what I love about these Friday posts!

ONE.  I finally carved my pumpkin on Wednesday night.  Of the three (well actually four, but some kid smashed one) pumpkins I bought, we only carved one this year.  Kevin wasn't in to because Game 7 of the World Series was on the night I decided to carve mine, so he didn't do one.  I can't wait to roast the seeds and eat them!  (Excuse the poor quality iphone photos.)

Of course, Admiral was my helper!

TWO.  My mom posted this on Facebook the other day and I feel like it is totally what the squirrel was thinking when he was attacking my pumpkin:

In case you didn't see, here's what I came home to one day (and the squirrel was in it, eating away before I took the pic and scared him off):

THREE.  Influenster recently sent me this bottle of Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair lotion to try and I am loving it so far.  I've only been using it for a few days, but I'm really happy with it.  I always lather myself with lotion when I get out of the shower because my skin feels so dry and itchy if I don't.  The lotion is non-scented which can be great for people with more sensitive skin.  I don't have issues with scented lotions, but I know some people that do.  I also like that a little goes a long with this lotion.  Sometimes it seems like I use half a bottle in one use, but not with this.  And it's not greasy feeling either--definitely a must try if you have dry skin, or if you just like a good lotion :)

FOUR.  I have some fun things coming to the blog next week, including a giveaway and recap of the Pinterest party that I hosted a couple weeks ago.  Here's a little preview of the Pinterest Party in you missed it on Instagram:

FIVE.  Tonight we are staying home and passing out candy to the brave trick-or-treaters.  It's supposed to be really cold and possibly snow today, so that's why I call them brave.  What are your plans for this Halloween night?

Have a safe and fun Halloween weekend!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

  1. That Pinterest party looks like so much fun!! Great idea! Happy Friday!

  2. Admiral's expression seems to be "I had nothing to do with this." !

  3. Your pumpkin looks great! I'm kind of bummed that we didn't get a chance to carve pumpkins this year. We don't get many trick-or-treaters, so I probably won't give out candy this year either. I'll probably work on my bathroom project instead.

  4. That pinterest party looks like it was so much fun - what a neat idea!

  5. Your pumpkin looks awesome. I can't believe you might have snow, eek!

  6. Awesome job on the pumpkin! I've never been able to be creative like that! I braved the cold and sat out there to pass out candy! Poor trick or treaters! It snowed here last night! Burrrrrrr!

  7. I love that picture with the squirrel in it. It's so funny!

  8. Great influenster box! I do the same thing as soon as I get out of the shower. And what a crazy squirrel?! I just laughed out loud when I saw that!
