As many of you already know, I am a sucker for anything holiday related. Since this weekend was full of holiday related goodness, it went down as a good weekend in my book. And, as the title implies, it was a weekend full of firsts for me and Garrett.
Saturday evening we went to Fright Fest at Elitch Gardens. This was my first time to experience a theme park while it was Halloween themed. I loved it! There were decorations, performances, people in costume chasing people around the park, a seance, and two haunted houses.
Garrett and I have been together for 8 years and this weekend was our first time to ride a roller coaster together. He's a roller coaster junkie, whereas I'll ride them if someone wants me to, but I don't get too excited about them. This one was fun though, twists and turns and upside down. Oh, and it was the kind where your feet dangle, I love those!
We also went to a seance performance and two haunted houses. This was my first time to go to a real haunted house. I LOVED it. I'm definitely addicted. I'm already ready to go to another, more intense, one. I thought I would be clingy and make Garrett go first but it was the opposite, I wanted to lead the way and not miss out on any scares.
Sunday we carved our first pumpkin. I was better at it than I thought I would be! I don't think I could ever do anything fancy, but it atleast resembled a face when we were done! Just having it lit up in our apartment feels so festive and makes me happy.
This coming weekend I am going to Austin for my sister's gender reveal party. I am SO excited to find out if that sweet baby is a boy or a girl. I'm also just excited to see my family, I can't wait.
Now if this week will just hurry up!
