I DON'T LIKE HALLOWEEN...

It's official, the holiday season is in full swing!!! I know most people would say it started with Halloween, but I disagree. The holiday season starts the day after Halloween for me. I suppose I should explain myself - Halloween is one of my least favorite holidays. There I said it. Cue the pitchforks and dirty stares, and the pre-judged notion that I must have been traumatized as a child by something to have caused all this. Well, maybe the last one is true (anyone see the movie Ernest Scared Stupid? That movie really did a number on me and my sleeping habits indefinitely. To this day I still have to sleep with something against my back). I think I just never understood the holiday to begin with. Why would anyone want to go running around in the pitch of night in 40 degree weather and knock on strangers doors? Maybe it's because I don't like candy (does candy corn count?). Maybe it's because I never understood why anyone would willingly want to be scared - haunted houses, exorcism movies? NO THANK YOU! Okay, it's not all bad. I do love a good pumpkin carving, and warm seasonal drinks, and pretty Fall leaves, and cheesy Halloween movies like Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown (that's as scary as I get).

Well, this Halloween I decided to be adventurous. I don't know what got into me. Perhaps it was the impromptu Michael Jackson's "Thriller" dance we performed in my Pilates class that morning, but Eric and I dressed up for the first time since being married and took ourselves to a Halloween party. Games, really yummy food and couples costume contests were involved. *Eric's mullet was a huge hit!* I may have gotten a tad competitive, but it was all in good fun.

I wish I had taken more pictures, but here are a few gems from the night! Happy November!!

  8. Halloween wasn't my favorite holiday when I was single but this year proved to be a lot more fun now that I am married.

    For not being big Halloween fans, you nailed the costume! So funny.

  9. The beginning of your post had me worried! I was going to say that I have never met a person against pumpkin carving and gorgeous fall leaves. I think this is going to be the first of many more Halloween costumes for the two of you! Your costumes were awesome.
