TGIF and Happy Halloween Weekend!
I have no big plans for Halloween other than hopefully playing with this.
I had been debating about a new lens for months and decided to order it and it arrived today. Normally I shoot with this camera and this lens <– That lens has not left my camera body for the entire duration I have owned it. Not kidding.
But I wanted a lens with a little more reach and also to have some diversity in my camera bag, i.e. zoom vs. prime lenses, and had been debating about the 85mm for months and decided to go for it. I know this is not exciting for some people but for me, it is. What can I say I have become more interested in lenses than loud Halloween parties.
I can’t wait to take my new friend out for a test drive this weekend.
We’ll also be taking Skylar out to the park this weekend.
And of course we have Halloween and trick-or-treating on Monday.
I wonder what kind of candy she’ll score?
I hope it’s good stuff
so I can raid her pumpkin so that perhaps I can sample some of it. I hope she’ll share.
Sometimes I just want one piece of something. Don’t need a 50-count bag of the same thing. That’s where Princess Halloween pails come in handy. You know know what you’ll find in them.
And if she doesn’t want to share, that’s okay because I have homemade Butterfinger Bars
And now I’m off to bake up a batch of Pumpkin Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars (Vegan, GF) and widdle my way through the 17 cans of pumpkin puree I may have stashed

“I love THOSE seaweed snacks!
I eat them just out of the bag or crumble them on a salad!”
1. Weekend plans? Are you going to be wearing a costume or going to any parties? Any shenanigans that you foresee getting into?
Nothing too exciting on my end.
2. Did you share your Halloween Candy (or Easter Candy, Holiday Candy, etc.) with your parents? Did you have elaborate trading systems with your siblings or friends?
I wouldn’t really call it sharing. I’d call it donating the candy to my dad that I wasn’t going to eat anyway.
And yes, my sister and I and my friends and I had elaborate candy trading systems.
“I’ll trade you two packets of Sweet Tarts, 3 black and orange-wrappered stale peanut butter toffee things, and a random green apple Jolly Rancher for two Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. Sound fair?”
P.S. Thanks for the Sunglasses Giveaway entries. Looks like lots of you want some shades.
And if you have one spare second, could you please Vote for Me in the Delta/Biscoff Bake-Off. Thank you! I really appreciate it.
