The Terror Behind the Walls

After our Halloween Party on Friday, our little group headed down to check out the Terror Behind The Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary. Our tickets were for us to head into the prison between 10:00-10:30 but we got down to the city early for dinner/drinks and celebrations! Cheers to everyone’s life changes!

Check out the Halloween decor at Urban Saloon. I love the candy corn mixed in with the candle! Such a cute touch! I started off with a beer. I told boyf I wanted “something pumpkin” and that’s what I got

It was really dark inside. We totally couldn’t even read the menu!

Literally the only light the table had was the candle’s glow! (and my camera flash going off every 5 seconds)

Boyf and I split the crab cake sliders (which were awesome!) – they came with tater tots (which was random)

Congrats to Noodles and Kate who are moving into together and getting a Jackson 2.0! Yay for new apartments and puppies!  :)

Dear Noodles, I had to post 1 embarrassing picture. Jackson made me do it!  Love, Leslie

Getting ready and feeling brave!

BOO! Did I scare you?? Did I mention is was 30 degrees and rainy in Philly on Friday when we did this?!?! Brrrr!

pics 074

The men folk freezing in line too!

The actual tour is about 30 minutes. You walk through the prison and all these scary people jump out at you and scare the crap out of you. I like getting scared like that! I think its fun, and Halloween is right around the corner. The prison itself is so eerie and lots of crazy stuff has gone on behind the prison walls when it was up and running, you can’t help but think of ghosts and spirits and hauntings that have occurred! I am always just so impressed with the people that come and volunteer to be the ‘inmates,’ they are always so dedicated and having such a great time.

Check out this dude who has a actual hole in his chest.  Craziness.

A good time was had by all! I love my Philly friends!

Impromptu Halloween Party

Another crazy busy (and rainy) weekend. Sorry for the lack of posts!

On Friday, boyf and I were having some friends over to watch the Phillies game and then head out into the city for some Halloween fun. Before everyone got here on Friday, I did some Halloween decorating. I put out all Jackson’s Halloween pictures from previous years, got some orange flowers and busted out some other fun decor.

I put out lots of goodies for everyone to enjoy.

pics 116

I got these adorable slice and bake Pillsbury Pumpkin Cookies

pics 109

They turned out supercute!

pics 110pics 117

I also put out some Dr. Kracker crackers and some Wild Garden Hummus. I also put some strawberries in a martini glass!

pics 114pics 040

And what’s a party without some chips and dip?? I put out some Miguel’s Chipotle Salsa and some Miguel’s Three Pepper Organic Dippers. They both had some kick to them!

pics 115  

I also cut up a red and a green pepper to munch on with the hummus, along with some more strawberries! You got to get the fruits and veggies in the spread somehow!

pics 118 

Kate brought these adorable pumpkin spread knives. We used them to spread the hummus. How cute are they??

pics 125

Kate also brought some soft and chewy chocolate chips cookies, which are ALWAYS welcome in my house!

pics 126

All together now!

pics 127

Kate and Noodles came over early and we started the fun right away! Kate (who brought lots of stuff…Love you Kate!) busted out Root Beer Vodka. She made some sort of concoction and the outcome was an alcoholic Root Beer Float! Did I mention Kate also brought they adorable pumpkin cups?? I love them!

Jackson wanted in on all the fun!

 pics 128 pics 129  pics 130 pics 131

I also enjoyed a Harvest Moon. Have you tried one of these yet? They are pretty yummy!!

pics 132

Shout out to Noodles, one of Jackson’s BFF’s!

pics 120

We all had a nice time watching the Phillies game. Sucks they lost, but they will lock it up tonight! We all had fun munching on the snacks, drinks and catching up! And then we headed downtown for some more Halloween fun…Stay Tuned!
