I forgot to post about finishing my pumpkin since the weekend. Yesterday, we had our second annual pumpkin carving contest at work. Unlike last year, I actually carved the pumpkin instead of only painting it. I slaved over this thing, and thankfully the results were in my favor. I managed to get 30% of the votes and Jack Skellington got first place [no, I did not vote for myself!]. But, I did do some campaigning by getting my friends to vote. Only a dozen pumpkins participated this time though, last year had 30 pumpkins to choose from. I ended up with a $150 gift card! This must mean the universe wants me to buy more shoes, right?!

While waiting for the results, we all enjoyed some apple cider (the cold kind, the hot kind is gross!) and donuts. I definitely took two donuts, they were delicious.
