Ok folks so let me introduce myself. My name is Bryan Power and I am one of the owners of Get The Bean coffees or as many of you may know me as: Meaghan's boyfriend. Most of you know my girlfriend Meaghan. She is certainly an amazing girl but that does not mean she is good at everything. I found out yesterday that carving a pumpkin is not one of her many talents. She found out differently about me though. You see we went to my friends Melissa and Phil's house to have a group pumpkin carving. Everyone gets to choose what they want to do and then in the end we all light them up. I have to admit it looks pretty cool when they are all lit up together.




In the end we had about ten pumpkins. We would have had 11 but Meaghans efforts were unsucessful. Her attempt at a skull and bones left her pumkinless. But more than that she showed no confidence in my abilties and so made me prove myself. As everyone searched for their idea on what to carve I decided I wanted to do a Get The Bean pumpkin. Upon my announcement Meaghan did not think this would be a successful venture at all (I have to admit I was a bit sceptical myself but did not let on so).




As everyone grabbed their pumpkin carving gear and began the process my venture began to take shape. As I navigated the delicate task of pumpkin carving I had to remain aware that my reputation was on the line. In the end I think I was able to handle the task. Meaghan even said she was impressed with the final outcome. I have to admit I was both pleased and shocked that I was able to pull it off also.




What you see here is a picture of the final outcome of my Get The Bean pumpkin. So I am interested in your opinions on this one. I mean would you give me a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Is it the Great Pumpkin or does Charlie Brown have to work on his craft?

Thumbs up for me! I need to use pumpkin masters to carve a decent pumpkin, otherwise it looks like a first grader carved it with a butter knife!
