Halloween Celebrations that Will Spook Your Socks Off… or maybe squee

This will mostly be an image blog post. On Friday, my full-time job held the annual pumpkin contest. My department’s theme was Unicorn Land; I made gluten-free cupcakes and wrote the story. Unfortunately, we didn’t win, but people loved our theme. HR also loved my story.

On Saturday, I bought a really cute Halloween style shirt at Urban Outfitters. I wore it yesterday–don’t worry, I’ll wear this neat shirt long after Halloween.


Yesterday, I went to the Academy of Natural Sciences for their Halloween themed enrichment. Luna the Great Horned Owl and the creepy crawlers crept their way into my heart, they added a much-needed touch.


I love Halloween.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I love the creative decorating ideas on display in this post! The unicorn pumpkin is adorable and the Pac-Man pumpkin is eye-popping. I laughed at the pumpkin who spit-up all over the chips. Looks like he could use an exorcism. šŸ™‚ The veggie-lantern is cute, too. Are those your gluten-free cupcakes masquerading as cow poop? šŸ™‚ You all looked great in your costumes and I also love the H-ween themed shirt you found at Urban Outfitters. I’m happy to know you went back to one of your favorite “haunts” – the Academy of Natural Sciences – and saw Luna the Great Horned Owl, a tarantula and other creepy critters.

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
