Sunday high

Carve the pumpkin. Check.
Make cupcakes. Check.
Find a costume from stuff made at home for party. Check.
Finish first draft of WIP before NaNoWriMo. Check.

YES!

I just finished sending out my first draft of my latest WIP to my CPs. You know that high of finishing a story. I'm giddy, nervous, hyper, and hungry. Really hungry.

We had fun at a friends' Halloween party yesterday. I found a bag of old costume pieces in the attic. I could've gone as a lazy pirate. Costume parts from when my husband was a Pastafarian one year. (100 geek points if you know what that is!) I instead took parts from a barbarian costume and went as an urban barbarian. Meaning I wore my normal clothes with skins over it.

My son has another Halloween party at preschool this Tuesday, and then there's trick-or-treating on Wednesday. A busy start to the week and then I'm diving right into NaNoWriMo. And no, I haven't done any more planning for it. Maybe I'll get a chance to do so one evening before Thursday.

My cupcakes didn't turn out too badly. It's harder to sculpt fondant than I thought. It was a good lesson learned. For fancy cupcakes, buy them from the store!

  1. Your husband went as someone from the Pastafarian religion? Or as the flying spaghetti monster?
    Glad you accomplished everything on your list. Those cupcakes look good!

  3. Is a Pastafarian a Rastafarian that likes pasta?? Hehe, just taking a stab at it. We went to some Halloween festivals and haunted houses last night, too. Not making cupcakes though - I suck at baking. Yours look super cute, so don't worry. And congrats on finishing your WIP!

    1. Thank you! I have villains already planned for mine. They're stronger in my mind than the good guys. Which doesn't bode well for them!
