So yesterday me and my guy searched high and low for a perfect jack o'lantern pumpkin but without success. However, this morning when I got down after showering and getting dressed, my boyfriend called me over with a surprise... He had gone and found me the PERFECT pumpkin to carve! His parents' neighbours had like 20 of them lying in their front yard as decoration, so he just went over to ask them whether those were homegrown and if we might get one too. Usually he is not the type to go around and ask semi-strangers for favors so the fact that he did so for me is really incredibly sweet.
And since I never forgo the opportunity to take pics with a cheesy prop, I immediately ordered the dude to photograph me with my new lover, the pumpkin I christened Joachim.

Of course, that pumpkin needed to be carved up yo. I googled some Halloween pumpkins because I don't have any experience in the subject, and after drooling over intricate designs I figured I should probably just stick to the classic Jack o'lantern face to keep things simple. However, when I had finished scooping out the seeds and stuff I was feeling ambitious. And since my boyfriend always calls me his very own Bree Van de Kamp I might as well live up to the reputation and give Martha Stewart a run for her money, no? So that's what I did, and this is the result!
PROUD! It was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be, so be brave with your pumpkin carving, guys!
Did you get pumpkins? Are you carving them up? :-)
