Halloween Recap!

To say we had a successful Halloween would be an understatement: we handed out all of our Halloween candy (hooray for the rain not keeping kids away!), I successfully gave myself Miley buns (and figured out that I’ve been making buns all wrong. The things you learn when you have long hair…) then bar-hopped in Kzoo with our large group of Monty Python characters, winning a costume contest while we were out and about! The prize was a Burton snowboard, which is a liiiittle difficult for 12+ of us to share, but it’s the thought that counts, right?!

Other than throwing Halloween parties with a friend in high school (which, don’t get me wrong, they were fantastic) – I haven’t really done anything exciting for Halloween as an adult, so going out with a group and being a little bit ridiculous was fantastic! 

One of my mottos? Never pass up the opportunity to use a photobooth.

Today was spent packing up Halloween decorations in a snazzy new purple box…hooray for post-Halloween sales!

And yes, I did listen to Christmas music for a good portion of the day today. 53 days and counting!

Hope everyone else had awesome Halloweekends!


Halloween Costume Prep!


Last night was spent practicing a bloody face “makeup look” for my halloween costume (and binge watching seasons 4 and 5 of ANTM. I really do have the best hubby.) Hooray for inexpensive Target makeup and brushes! Also, the lady checking us out found it hilarious that we were buying fake blood.

Any guesses as to what I’m going to be? Hint: It’s part of a group costume. No guessing if I’ve already told you! 🙂


PS. My hair is longer than it’s been in about 6 years. Oy.
