Pumpkin Crazy

Nearing the end of October, which means its almost time for Halloween - scary (or sexy) costumes, haunted houses and corn mazes and most of all, pumpkin patches!! I loveeeee pumpkin patches, I don't think I've gone to a real one since I was a little kid!  My friends and I decided to hit one up last weekend and carve a pumpkin together, be festive :)

We went to Half Moon Bay, and it turned out to be their annual Pumpkin Festival... if you are from the area, you know that theres really only two ways into Half Moon Bay, which means TONS AND TONS OF TRAFFIC!  It honestly took us over 2+ hours to get there, it was so ridiculous. I don't think we will ever go back during this time again, unless we leave at 8AM!

I love frolicking through the pumpkin patches and seeing all the families and kiddies who are looking for their own pumpkins. Especially cute when the little ones choose the HUGEST pumpkin possible :)

At the festival, we had the most delicious pumpkin pie! I love home made pies... there is a world of difference between home made pumpkin pie and the store bought kind definitely!

We also watched the Giants game while there. They had a big screen playing the game outside. GO GIANTS!! (Off to the world series baby!) I honestly am not that into baseball, but I so have Giants fever from being in the city and around so many people who love it! We actually ended up watching the whole game at this English-style pub because the traffic was so bad! Luckily we won and then once the traffic died down, we had a MUCH quicker drive home

Before then, we had a great lunch at the Ritz Carlton while at Half Moon Bay. They had this awesome coal pit, it was cold so it was just perfect for us to lounge outside and see our amazing view..

Okay, so first of all, you look absolutely gorgeous! I love your outfit - you look way cute, especially for a day of pumpkin picking!
What cute pictures - and that view is absolute perfection. And, I'm very jealous that you already got to eat pumpkin pie - we onlyyy have it on Thanksgiving and then I miss it for a whole year.
