pumpkin carving ideas

i don't know about you but i'm kind of in love with the season right now! the crisp air, leaves falling, holiday scented candles, costume ideas, and pumpkins! lots of pumpkins! 
at work we are having a pumpkin carving contest where the guest get to vote on the employees pumpkins, sooo i've been doing my research on pinterest (of course) and found some really neat ideas of how to turn your pumpkin into a work of art! some of my very favorites aren't even carved.. take a look!

hawaii cruise: part lll

oahu, home sweet home! and boy let me tell you, it felt good to be back! to be able to show collin my childhood and finally put an image to all the stories i've told was something special. our time there was short but the memory of our visit will always be close in our hearts.

kauai, oh beautiful kauai! we would have been perfectly fine with the cruise ship leaving us behind (and our parents flying jude out, of course) i mean are you kidding me? kauai is the very definition of paradise, pictures wont do it justice, i promise you that. the hippie town of hanalei will one day be our second home. one day.
