We made it to the pumpkin patch

Ah! I'm so not original! Aren't you tired of looking at photos of bloggers in pumpkin patches? Hackneyed, I know! But hey! In my defense, this was my very first time in one ... Because, you know, I'm Argentinean ... And I (and my husband) suck at planning things, so we didn't make it last year, ha. To make it up to you, I'll make this post funny escatological, I promise.

We almost failed to visit one this year as well because I got sick in the stomach on Friday night. Why did I get sick ... ? Damn, I can't recall ... Oh, wait, yes, I had a beef burrito (aka the killer) followed by a dose of cough medicine (no, I'm not working on a meth lab! I get bad colds and coughs even when it's hot - FYI it's still hot in SoCal). Anyway, the next day I felt almost just as bad, but given that most pumpkin patches/corn mazes close by Halloween, we had to go this weekend. It was a very short visit because I needed to know there was a restroom available as soon as I needed one, haha. TMI? Sorry.

So, without further ado, here are a few pics we took at the pumpkin patch.

A lot of pumpkins were already going bad or rotten, haha, but it didn't matter to me, I was a happy bunny just enjoying this new experience.

I guess this is the most Halloweenish outfit you'll see me wear this year: a skeleton tee I bought in Argentina a while before taking off. Well ... you can't actually see much of it.

I don't know why I thought I had to pick up a pumpkin every time David was about to take a photo of me, haha. 

This is the corn maze we didn't get to do because of what I told you in paragraph #2; plus I don't think my footwear was corn maze-friendly (it never is. I'm so short, I try not to wear flats when we go out). Don't ask me how I managed not to fall walking on the dirt up and downhill, dodging holes and lumps; I'm well trained, I guess.

After seeing these pics, I realized I have a pizza face :/. So from now on, you can totally call me pizza face if you feel so inclined ... I can almost see the olives spread all over the circumference of my face, bahahaha!

We didn't buy a pumpkin, but we didn't leave empty handed :p. This farm is part of a college field where students grow a lot of veggies and put them up for sale.

They have a market where you can buy goodies grown or made outside the farm, too. I accidentally found the themed pasta I included in a compendium a couple of weeks ago :). It was over 5 bucks, so we didn't get any.

Not chocolate, but candles.

And these are the goodies we did buy :p. I love the glass milk bottle and yes, that's an empty honey bear, ha. You could fill it with their own honey, but I just wanted the container ... I wonder who's going to get it in the mail :p!

OK, this was another boring pumpkin patch blog post ... But it was a fun experience to me :p!  

Have a fun Halloween if you celebrate it! And a wonderful day!

Have you considered that the beef burrito is related to your need to pick up a pumpkin every time a camera was pointed in your direction? It's a well-researched fact that burritos cause the-desire-to-lift-pumpkins. It's really convenient when in a pumpkin patch, but harder to fulfill when it's not Halloween.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN dearest Miki! :) I'm hoping to get lots of trick or treating kids this year, but it's sp frakking cold where I am so I doubt many kids will brave the weather. Canadians may have a higher-than-average tolerance for cold weather, but we have limits too!
