October and Salem Haunts..

We are in October! Which means I can officially allow myself to decorate full on Halloween! I've already started with some Halloween jams (like Ghostbusters) 

I've also gotten into the spooky spirit at work. My latest bulletin board display features some literary monsters. Can you name them all? 

This past Friday was also birthday...woooo! To celebrate we decided to take a trip up to Salem. Its something we have always wanted to do in October. It was quite a magical place. 

If you aren't too familiar, Salem is a historic town in Massachusetts famous for accusing several of its citizens of witchcraft. It really comes alive during October because of Halloween. There were a ton of fun spooky things going on around town. We did a haunted ghost tour and saw this really creepy ass house and heard some stories of spectral encounters. 

I loved just walking around the town. It was a neat place to explore. A lot of the shops were fun to explore. There was even a Harry Potter store! It was amazing! I got a butter beer candle from them. 
We also went to one of the many museums there. This one was kinda cheesy but we had fun goofing on it. While exploring the town we came across this house in all its Halloween decorating glory. I was quite impressed so I put it on instagram. In a weird small world type twist, the owner of the house found my post and liked it. 

All in all I had a great birthday and Salem is a fun town. We will definitely be going back again soon.
