Halloween, the Holiday


Not my favorite holiday. Excluding the candy, its right up there with Toilet Cleaning Day. (Okay, I know that's not an actual holiday.) I absolutely do not like the whole trick or treating thing, making costumes, answering the door every five minutes, etc. etc.

As a matter of fact, several years ago I bribed my children into having a family Halloween party (pizza, pop, treasure hunt for candy, watch a movie) instead of trick or treating. They actually went for it. We've made it an annual tradition ever since.

But . . .

This year I fell in love with this amazing idea and thanks to my sister was able to pull it off. Thanks Jill!

I attended an actual Halloween party. I know. I'm as shocked as you.


What think ye?


  1. Holy smokilicious, is that YOU?!?! That is seriously amazing. I hope you enjoyed the party! I don't like the "scary" stuff of Halloween, but I do enjoy the "fun" stuff.

  2. LOL...I wondered if that was you too! You look amazing ;) Love it!!

    I'm with you, I don't like Halloween but sometimes it's fun to dress up and go out. I'm all for staying home and watching movies and eating pizza.

  3. Anytime, girl. Anytime.

  4. That is a KILLER costume! Way to go, Jill, on the headpiece and way to go Shari on looking so FANTASTICALLY AWESOME!!

  5. How fun! I would do the same because lately, I've lost interest in the whole Halloween thing. I would LOVE a dance to go to and a party. Where do I get one, though? *pouting*

  6. Which one, Elizabeth? A dance? Or a party?

  7. Wow. That is one of the BEST costumes I've ever seen?! I hope you had a good time. :-)

  8. Holy wow! Is that you Shari? You look amazing! So, so cool! (Way to go with the look Jill!)

  9. Wow! Now I'm addict for Halloween! I love it, one of my favorite holidays, but it's around the time my husband proposed to me, it's my husbands birthday and an overall good family function.

    Love the costumes!

    I'm a new follower and adore your blog! Feel free to stop by my neck of the woods and say hello! I'd love to see you!

  10. Surprised to hear that you are not normally into the holiday. Could have fooled me with that amazing costume. I think my words at the party "who are you?" I was pretty sure it was you but I just needed to verify, you looked amazing!


Let Me Hear From You!
