Haloooo NaBloPoMo!

I greet you with the sweetness and light of a blogger who plans to write every single day for the rest of the month. And this is my first post. Note the sweetness. Note the light. Note that most of it is organically manifested within and not a direct result of the Halloween Candy Sugar High I will have for the rest of the month.

Wow, Bethany, a whole month of Candy Sugar High? Why yes, dear reader, because after I'd bought a very modest amount of candy and then watched as neighbors actually filled ALL THREE of my kids Pumpkin buckets TO THE TOP with candy, and then had only 3 trick or treaters come to the door, I have MORE candy than when I actually began the Halloween Celebration!

Think I'm being dramatic? Think I might exaggerate a little? Think this blog already contains too many questions? Well, here is the loot......

You know, it's hard to really judge depth in a photograph. Can we measure?

Wow. Look at that.

I now have 4 gallon Ziploc bags filled with leftover Halloween Candy. Everyone who works with David should just watch out: He's bringing it to you Monday morning.

Of course, they should also know there will not be a single peanut butter cup in the bunch.


  1. Yes! Yes! Yes! Candy high! Glorious candy! Yay for candy! Not that I've had any at all yet this morning! I mean, I wouldn't lie about a thing like that! And my continuing use of exclamation points doesn't give away the actual truth! Not at all!

    Candy! Candy! Candy!
