Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin Carving

The next morning Drew woke up not feeling good, but I was ready to go. I decided to scrape out the pumpkins and get to carving. Drew went back to bed, and I turned on some Halloween music on my phone and started the process.

First, I got out all the pumpkin goo and separate the seeds. I put the seeds in a colander in the sink. I like to bake them after I am done. Then, once I am finished scraping the pumpkin. I rinse off the seeds, pat them and then put them on a foil lined baking sheet. I set the oven for 400, and spread some melted butter over them, sprinkle them with salt, then put em in the oven for like 10 mins. They are so good!

I carved two pumpkins. One was a “Pitt” pumpkin and the other was a typical jack-o-latern. Typically, Drew is the pumpkin carver in the relationship, but I think I did a good job!

Around 12pm, I cleaned up my mess and woke Drew up to watch the Pitt game. It was their homecoming game. Unfortunately, Pitt lost to Miami. I was sad for them. This means that they won’t be going to Charlotte for the ACC tournament, which is a bummer, but we will see what the rest of the season brings for our Panthers!

This evening, we cancelled dinner reservations at Bistecca. Drew wasn’t 100%, but he still wanted to cook for me. He made me a nice steak dinner, sweet potato, and asparagus. I am so grateful for him.

My 29th Birthday and Our One-Year Anniversary

Today, I had a nail appointment and I didn’t have to work today, either. Drew went to the gym, while I was getting my nails done, and then he was going to go grocery shopping. While, he was out I beat him back home after my nails, and I put on some Halloween music, and started to scrape out the Pumpkins so we could carve them. I was happy to scrape them out, I poured some wine, and waited for my husband to come home. When he came home, he brought home flowers. I love getting flowers. I used to get them all the time, so when I do it is amazing!

After we carved our pumpkins, we made dinner, and he gave me my birthday gifts, and I gave him his anniversary letter, and he wrote one for me too. We cut the top layer of cake. It was so nice, and drank our champagne that we had in our room on our wedding night. The cake was better than the champagne. It was romantic and sweet. Our cake was so yummy! It was a great birthday and a great one-year anniversary.
