The New Ride & Some Halloween Fun

Definitely been a little MIA with the blog lately. Not even gonna try to make an excuse... I just got behind :)

I'll start first with our gorgeous new car we bought last Friday!

We weren't even expecting to buy a car that night so it was a fun surprise. We had ordered a car about a month ago since the 2013 Fusions hadn't even hit the lots yet. Our sales rep called Friday and said one had just hit the showroom floor and we could come take a look at what we ordered since we never actually saw one in person. While we were checking it out, he mentioned that this is the exact same car we have ordered and said we could just take this one if we wanted! So, an hour later we drove off in our new car!

We're so thankful my Grandpa Bucktail was able to get us a family deal since he used to work in the  corporate world of Ford :) Thank you so much Bucktail! We LOVE our beautiful new car!!


I've had these two tables since my first apartment and the black was just getting worn down and chipping. So, I attempted to paint my first pieces of furniture but needless to say, they looked horrible - definitely should have bought actual paint and not craft paint. Thankfully my mom was sweet enough to go buy some better paint and take over the project.

We just needed some color in the room and the coral pink was perfect. We have such dark furniture that it was getting a little drab. The tops are a bit tough to keep looking clean though since food gets set on it and remotes are scratching them too. I'm thinking I'll be Mod Podging the tops with something cute someday soon.

Thanks for the save mama!!


Last Saturday, Tyson and I went with his sister and her boyfriend to Frightmares!

Lagoon is absolutely one of my favorite places to go during Halloween time. It's SO festive and the atmosphere is perfect for someone who loves this holiday :).

We weren't able to go last year since Tyson broke his leg the day we were planning to go. But it was worth the wait :).

The boys have quite the bro-mance going on to say the least. They were shouting each other's names during every single ride lol. So funny!

I love when the characters start walking around in the evening. Tyson can't stand the chainsaws so it was pretty funny to watch him wig out lol.

We only hit up one haunted house since the lines were CRAZY long! But for a free haunted house, it was pretty good!

Every year we come to Lagoon, it never seizes to amaze me that this white roller coaster is still running!! I think this is one of the scarier rides just because the thought of it falling apart while I'm on it is scarier than a loop-de-loop lol.

Like I said, I LOVE the atmosphere of Frightmares! So eerie :)

The boys wanted to play some games to win us a prize, but unfortunately for them, I was the only one that walked away with a prize lol. Milk Jugs is usually my game but I only won a tiny prize this time.

I LOVE Lagoon's Frightmares and can't wait to go every year if possible :)


Earlier this week it was "Boss's Day" so my team asked me to make my supervisor a banner. It was literally last minute so I wasn't able to spend a lot of time on it. But thanks to my Cricut, it wasn't too bad.

She loves pink and purple so I tried to make it really girly. Thankfully all of the materials I used, I already had!


Last night, Tyson and I had a fun Halloween Date Night

We went to Paranormal Activity 4!

I was tense the ENTIRE movie and was exhausted afterwards lol. However, I still feel that the third movie is still scarier. This one was intense but the third movie had more scary action. I expected a lot more since the previews looked so intense, but it was still worth seeing :)

After the movie Tyson wanted to go to a Pumpkin Patch to find some pumpkins to carve; unfortunately the pumpkin patches were all closed but we did find this corner market on our way home.

I couldn't believe how huge some of their pumpkins were!

We found some carving patterns on-line and went to work. I HATE gutting the pumpkins; so gross!

I LOVE the way our jack-o-lanterns turned out though!

We live on the top floor of our apartments so it was tough to get some good pictures.... but I tried :)

We have some orange and purple lights up, found a glow-in-the-dark skeleton at the dollar store, and propped the jack-o-lanterns up on our patio table. I LOVE THIS SEASON!

I keep forgetting to take some pictures of my other Halloween decor, so I'll post some up with my next round of pics.

We're heading to the Haunted Circus tonight and next week is full of more haunted places and a night downtown to see Thriller.

I also went onto Amazon and bought some classic Halloween movies! I hope they get here soon!!

Halloween..... PLEASE NEVER END!!
