Halloween Goodness, Pumpkin Ale, Sharp Objects

So... i'm semi caught up on blogging but horribly behind on reading! Forgive me- it's a goal for tomorrow - I plan to read for the break between work and my blogger meet-up dinner which I'm SO excited about! Thanks you guys - I'm so glad you're okay with the fact that pupper pics will be in abundance! LOL I promise i'll keep it under control - but thank you for the sweet, supportive comments! And YES, girl time is the BOMB. I heart the boys, but love spending time talking about our topics, no matter how trivial they appear to others. ENJOY! So here is what was up today in pictures:

Reuben and Remy - sleepy pups
Reading whilst walking
pumpkin ale
candy corn shots


Here is today in words:
  • work
  • 5-mile walk during work with lots of Sharp Objects reading and chatting with my mom.
  • more work and chill time with the puppers
  • shower and then 5 seasons
  • Pumpkin ale from a 200-pound pumpkin
  • candy corn shots (insanely on target)
  • chill time with Katie, Cush and Austin
  • family night with Austin, Reuben and Remy
  • LOVELY day all together...
Q: Ever had pumpkin ale or a candy corn shot? It was my first time for both - YUMMY.

Q: What's your favorite part about Halloween (assuming you like it!)? I'm not a costume fan - but LOVE the feel... and the pumpkin filled with alcohol was probably a favorite, too.

I've never had a candy corn shot. I'm not a fan of sweet shots honestly....I'm more of a tequila girl. But I would give it a try. :) I love pumpkin flavored stuff this time of year!

Mmm candy corn shots!?!? Sounds delicious. Never even HEARD of them!

I love pumpkin ale but have never tried candy corn shots! I am not a big costume fan either but I love little kids dressing up:)

Candy corn shots sound amazing! I love candy corn! I'm not a super huge Halloween fan (unless Ryan is here because he loves it) but I love all things fall. I love pumpkins, squash, crinkly leaves, sweaters, and the smell!

Hey! I have had a few pumpkin ales- delicious but never a candy corn shot. Favorite part of halloween? Giving out candy to all the kiddos. Hope your Friday is wonderful <3

Pumpkin ale sounds good--but I don't think I've ever had it. As for the candy corn shots, I don't even want to know what's in those, do I?

And I love all the puppy pictures--please keep em coming!!!

Love pumpkin ale, but never had it out of an actual pumpkin! Never had a candy corn shot...sounds dangerous!

I love Halloween, but my bf is not into costumes so don't usually dress up. I love decorating the house, making festive treats, hopefully this year having our first trick-or-treaters (don't get any in apts), and of course, pumpkin/spiced drinks - love em!

Happy Halloween!

Yes, I like pumpkin ale! :)

Favorite part of Halloween? Seeing the toddler being excited about Halloween and "getting it" for the first time this year! :)

Happy Halloween!

I love pumpkin ale but have never had candy corn shots- though if they taste anything like candy corn, I know I'd love them!!

I have never even heard of a candy corn shot ... they must be delicious though. I love pumpkin ale!!

Biz said...

I love pumpkin ale - I've gotten it this time of year the past few years - it just tastes like fall in a bottle for me!

Love Halloween - but I have no trick or treaters - we only have six houses on our block, we have no street lights or side walks - the kids in the neighborhood get dropped off in neighborhoods where the houses are closer together.

I'll be lucky if I get the four kids next door, but that's about it. :(
