Carving, costuming, too many pictures, and a very terrible segue to a giveaway.

The week before Halloween was very fall-ish, which obviously was right up my alley. 

After Anthony, Jess, Jon, and I went pumpkin/apple picking together, as mentioned in a previous, very photo heavy post, Anthony and I headed back to my apartment so that we could carve pumpkins. He had NEVER carved a pumpkin before,  so it (of course) turned into a huge contest where loser has to cook dinner for the winner.

We carved, turned to Instagram and Facebook... and my beautiful sugar skull pumpkin WON by 2 votes (so even all of you who wrongly picked the one on the left... I still get dinner made for me!).

My work Halloween started with my coworker coming up to me and saying, "Barnes, I need your cell number immediately." So I gave it to him, and then two seconds later he asks if I checked my messages. I had to run back to my classroom, grab my phone, and then I saw this message:

This is code for the fact that my boss is walking around doing spot observations for all staff, and was extra fitting for Halloween.

For Halloween, we ventured via ferry from Hoboken to Jess and Jon's in the city to pregame at their apartment and head to the parade in the Village.. except we had way too much fun pregaming, so the parade didn't happen. Despite the change in plans (which was 100% for the best because the weather was disgusting and we were seriously having a ball), it was a phenomenal Halloween.

Halloween 2014 - Medusa and Jax.

We take pretty cute candids.

Boys and balconies.

Because I wanted to be a badass too (or Jess was taking pictures and decided to stage with props).

Girls gone wild.


We headed to a local bar for more drinks (mission accomplished).. American Hustle, vampires, Medusa, and Jax walk into a bar...

...Then we found a wheel on the wall, so drunk all of us decided to take bets.. on what? I don't really know.

End of the night eyes.

There were six of us - please take note of all the drinks on the table. 

 My Medusa makeup was all purchased from Sephora - have you entered the giftcard giveaway yet? I teamed up with some of my favorites to bring you a $100 giftcard.

Sounds like an epic halloween. I spent mine at a house party and it was more alcohol fuelled that I would have liked haha! Trick or Treat shots meant I ended up with a Tabasco flavoured jelly shot.

B @ The Sequin Notebook said...

I loved seeing all of these pictures!!! You guys are simply the cutest and that candid laughing shot is way better than most of my posed shots! And speaking of shots...looks like you all did Halloween the right way ;)

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

I picked the one on the left :( #forshame. I also almost had a heart attack when I read that you kinda almost went to the Village parade that I was also at, so I guess that's payback :)
