Halloween FOMO

I did a full body work out video from the youtubes and let me tell you my entire body is sore so I give it a painful two thumbs up. I'm expecting my six pack any day now.

You know what else is painful? THIS PUMPKIN.

Barbed wire? Ugh my poor heart.

I went to RISE of the Jack O'Lanterns on Sunday in the Seaport district and yes we saw some cool pumpkins but I would not go again and it was not worth the price of admission. Without the discount the tickets were $30 each. We paid less than that but it was still too much.

There were kids everywhere and people taking photos with their flash which is really distracting when you're in the dark trying to see a bunch of pumpkins. There are signs everywhere asking people to not use the flash on their camera but no, they had to get a picture of precious Tommy running around in a circle screaming his head off.

Derek: I don't think there are actually 5,000 pumpkins here.

me: I'm just pissed that no one properly cleaned these pumpkins on the floor out!

Derek: Is that rotting pumpkin or a child?

me: I really don't know.

I'm making it sound worse than it was. At least there was this dragon and I got popcorn. Popcorn makes everything better. I could tell Derek wanted to get the hell out of there after about five minutes. I appreciate that he let's me drag him to stuff. Sometimes I drag him to fun things though and that's how I keep getting him to go.

I could have gone out tonight. There were a few options to celebrate Halloween but I decided to be lazy on my couch. I tend to be a bit of a social butterfly and have a hard time turning down an invitation. Sometimes I need to just stay in and relax. It's good for me and it's good for my wallet. I'm getting better at not saying yes to everything but it's still something I'm work on. FOMO is real.

So here's my Halloween costume; lazy vampire girl on couch.


  1. Wow, those jack-o-lanterns are pretty amazing. A barbed wire heart, seriously?! (I know I'm still in season 6, but I know what happens...)

  2. So basically both you and Germana gave the thumbs down to this thing. ugh
