Halloween Part I.

As I get older, I am appreciating Fall more and more. It is now my favorite time of the year! In my opinion, Summer is soooo last season. I'm over it. Part of the reason I enjoy Fall so much is because my birthday is in October of Halloween!! I think about costume ideas for month prior to the holiday, and I must be honest, I am quite annoying. I ask for everyone's (especially my cousin Alyssa's) opinion- and I ask for their opinion about a hundred times. What can I say, I'm just trying to out beat my costume from the years before!

Besides dressing up, I like all the festivities that Halloween/Fall has to offer. Haunted rides, pumpkin carving, apples, leaves falling, cooler weather, football...just to name a few. I think that whenever I have children(decades from now- I'm sure) I will be one of those over the top Moms. Not something I am looking forward to, but I think its going to happen. I'll be the type of Mom that volunteers to bake dozens of cupcakes, and hand sew costumes for class plays.

Any who...this weekend I went to a Halloween party. It was such a good time! Halloween is even more enjoyable when you have friends who enjoy dressing up just as much as you do. This year 4 of us dressed up as an infamous rock band, perhaps you might know of the band KISS!?!?!? It was a lot of fun. We looked like this...
Didn't our costumes come out great? I think so.

In addition to dressing the part, I also baked cupcakes. I saw a few decorating tips on line. They didn't come out as good as I hoped, but they sure were delish! Here's how they looked.
They were supposed to be little gravestones and mummies. They look okay, I suppose.

To give you a glimpse of how much I enjoy fun costumes, and preparing for Halloween, let me give you a blast from the past. Take a look at my costumes from the past 2 years!

Cotton Candy- that costume was super easy and super cheap!

Break Dancer- very comfortable.

This is only part I to my Halloween. Next week I will be attending another Halloween party. For that occasion, I will be going less original- more girly. 


  1. We don't do girly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Also, I have some ideas for next year already....I will share soon!

  2. Please share, we only have 12 months to plan!!!!!
