Oh hi there,
So on Saturday night, Justin and I dressed up like twins (accidentally) (oh hey there matching white t-shirts), and carved the crap out of some pumpkins.
Now let me just start by saying that I suck at carving. Like big time suckage. Like, I can't even carve a simple pumpkin face with circle eyes, triangle nose, and crooked chunky pumpkiny teeth. But, my boyfriend happens to be a master carver (I swear) and taught me a few things before we got started, and for the FIRST TIME in my life, I'm so freakin' proud of my pumpkin. I love it.
I wanted to carve something superman related since Justin and I have an on-going superman/batman battle and he was going to carve batman, so carving a pretty princess pumpkin just didn't seem fitting or appropriate. So I went balls to the wall and decided to do superman. Justin took this
awful picture of me and my pumpkin before I got started.
I sat back and took one last look at this bad boy before I got started. I panicked a little and told Justin this was a bad life decision and this was going to be WAY too hard for my simpleton carving abilities.
This is my 'I'm very unsure about this life decision' face. I'm not dramatic about this at all.
But, even though I was pretty unsure it was going to suck, I'm actually really happy with how mine turned out...
Justin's pumpkin was 10x more impressive than mine. He started with the joker. We had to look at it/test it out with a candle before he kept carving, and I think it looks awesome.
Then he went back to work an hour later he had BATMAN.
Then the final step was carving the bat symbol into the back of the pumpkin so that it would shine on the wall once it was lit, and I think it looks so good. Kudos to Justin for that idea.
And one last look of his pumpkin, a little closer..
So there we have it, our superhero (and villain) pumpkins.. we may or may not have bought two more pumpkins yesterday, so we may or may not carve some more super heroes and villains this week. Stay tuned.
Justin insisted on carving more pumpkins last night. I put a whole 15 minutes of effort into mine while he put about 2 hours into this bad boy.
Justin carved Venom on one side, and on the other side...
I had no clue that Justin was such an amazing carver - I'm seriously blown away by his skills.
Just before we crawled into bed last night we lit all of the pumpkins and Amanda and I "oooh'd" and "ahhhh'd" over them.
