Alex and I had such a wonderful day together. We woke up at *gasp* 12:15! Ha! :) I don't remember the last time we slept half the day. We didn't get to bed until about 1 am and he had been up since 5 am so it was a long day! So we woke up, got ready, and went to The ART bar. (Be sure to read all about the Altered Art Adventure- ATC Mixer last night.) The exhibit of my ATC collection wasn't put up yet so we'll call and see if it's up tomorrow so I can go take photos. I needed to go anyway because by the time I left last night at 11:30 pm the cash register was closed. I just bought a couple of little things so that I could apply the techniques I learned to my artwork. On the way home Alex and I went to the pumpkin patch in Aliso Viejo and he thought it was so funny that it was in the parking lot of a shopping center. Well excuse me Mr. Midwestern. ;) Alex got a case of "caring what people think" and initially didn't want to go pick out a pumpkin with me. He quickly got over that and joined me in the fun. :) We picked out our pumpkins and we each picked a big one and a wee one. We also bought a carving kit and brought them home to carve. It was a lot of fun carving them-I'd never used a kit before. They turned out great IMHO. :) Afterward, I made us some yummy (almost too salty) pumpkin seeds. Mmm, mmm.
