Happy Halloween! I’ll be honest….Halloween is my least favorite holiday. I know, I know, don’t kill me! It’s not that I don’t like Halloween, I just like all the other holidays a lot better. Doesn’t mean I won’t stuff my face with candy, dress up, and carve up some pumpkins!
My pumpkin is the optimistic one.
That being said, I don’t mind dressing up as something fun and cool. Having grown up doing theater, I love a good costume and I also like being in character. I’ve had a few favorite costumes over the years that I thought I’d share with you today.
Some of my favorites are from college Theater! I did a few musicals in college and got to wear totally different costumes for each of them. I did Music Man (I’m 4th from the right)
And South Pacific….
I’ve also had a few fun party costumes over the years. One year I was a German beer wench:
Last year, Riley and I were zombie hunters. Probably my favorite costume so far. We had cool props and got to use fake blood!
We were so hardcore….Ha! This past weekend, we went to an 80’s themed Halloween party and while I didn’t go as anyone in particular, I did like my overall outfit!
Even though I don’t like Halloween decorations as a general rule (fake plastic ghosts that stick to windows, I’m talking to you), I do like the dressing up part. And handing out candy to little kids. Apparently my niece, Annabelle, is going as Rainbow Dash (I have no idea who that is) and I can’t wait to see pictures!
I hit the gym nice and hard this morning for some cardio before heading to work. Tonight’s plan is to stay at home and pass out candy. Coco, being a black cat and all, is thrilled to sit in the window every year and scare little kids as they come up to the door. Can’t wait!
