The Prerequisite Pumpkin Patch Blogger Post

Happy Halloween! I actually have two posts scheduled for today. One is going up later. It is a spooky home decor story. ; )

This year is flying by and when I told my kids that I need to know what they want for Christmas, they laughed at me.

Mom! It’s two months away!”

Um, no, it’s not. It is less than two months away and I feel so unprepared.

What the heck does that have to do with a pumpkin patch?

Absolutely nothing, except to say that I am behind. We did not buy our pumpkins this year until the twenty eighth.

The pumpkin patch was incredibly crowded.

The drought caused the corn maze to be short this year.

This pumpkin patch is the best though. They do not charge anything for the maze. It is a sweet free fun family activity.

I would like to say that I am so cool that I sat on this hay stack and walked away unscathed.

I would like to say that.

But that would be a lie.

I was picking hay out from underneath that dress all night.

The pumpkin patch definitely had the last laugh.

Did I mention I am allergic to hay?

And pumpkins?

I know.

I was also so intelligent that day that when I went to cut the tags off of this plaid scarf from Target, I cut a hole right through it.

That is okay. It cannot be seen. I don’t think. Oh well, I love the two plaids mixed together. It made me unbelievably happy. I am wearing my plaid tunic that I purchased for $20 at Nordstrom Rack last year. So many stores have a similar dress this year (here -the yellow gives me butterflies and here).

I was unsure about wearing this tunic with just tights. I asked my husband over and over, “Honey, are you sure this isn’t too short?”
And he assured me it wasn’t. He lied.

I made it through the whole corn maze without flashing anyone. I knew it was too good to be true. I went back to the car and I bent over to grab my gnome from the car, as one does.

I was being entirely unladylike, but there was a car right next to me and I figured the odds of the people coming back to that car whilst I was bending over were nil.

So, you can imagine my surprise when I stood up, turned around and a husband and wife were directly behind me. The wife’s lips were pursed and the husband was red.

You would think that would be the most embarrassing thing.

But then this happened.

My husband was so happy that I wanted to give this little guy a ride.

By the way, those guys in the parking lot are high-fiving each other because they chose to wore pants that day. Showoffs.

It was all worth it to see how happy the gnome was swimming in the squash.

With his little purple pointy hat, bright blue shirt and black… Pants.

Sigh.

Well, at least one of us left the pumpkin patch with a little dignity.

Although if you really stop to think about it, swimming in gourds isn’t exactly hospitable.

You can’t take us anywhere.

  1. You were wearing tights though. That doesn’t count. Unless those are thigh highs…in which case…I stand corrected and it is def NSFW or anywhere else for that matter. LOL

    The gnome fits right in with all those other warped looking veg. Don’t tell him I said that.

    • I thought it didn’t count either, until I tested the theory out. It does. In these tights, it does. : 0

      I won’t tell him. ; ). He is all ready disturbed enough.

      Sweet dreams!

    • My Target still had three left last week! They are sold out online, though. The scarf is such a good price. I really likeit. If only I had not snipped it!

      I am allergic. No pumpkin anything for me.m : (. All melons and gourds. I break out in a rash and my throat and mouth get itchy. Definitely not life threatening but not fun.

      Have a super rest of the weekend!

  2. I am also allergic to hay, which turns apple orchards and pumpkin patches into precarious situations. It’s a shame because I love going to them. I have to pop a couple of Benadryl going in, make sure to touch nothing, and avoid touching my face at all costs. The lengths I go to for “the fall experience!”

    This is a perfect pumpkin patch outfit: cozy, layered, and with lots of texture. I absolutely adore those booties. The crochet lace is the perfect finishing touch. I also love that you mixed checks and plaid. Such a fun play on print mixing!
