Happy (Almost) Halloween!

October 30, 2015

Are y’all as excited for Halloween as I am? I’ve always loved dressing up since I was a kid and this year will be no different. I’ll be rocking my pumpkin costume (orange tutu and pumpkin hairclip included) all throughout Saturday night, with my boyfriend who’s dressing up as Chewbacca so we’ll definitely make an interesting couple!

With work and everything (bad excuses, I know) I feel like October has totally snuck by me, although I did take a time to make my apartment feel more spooky with mini pumpkins and a cute little ghost that’s hanging in my living room. And I finally watched Hocus Pocus last night, which is about as scary of a movie as I can watch. I’m definitely scaredy-cat which is why I think that it’s so funny that Halloween’s always been one of my favorite holidays, although it’s arguably one of the scariest nights of the year! One year when I was in high school, one of my best friends and I stayed in to pass out candy and haveΒ a scary movie marathon, and I think that I had my hands over my eyes the entire time!

Do you guys have anything exciting planned for this weekend? I’m heading back down to North Carolina for a few days, so I’ll be getting my fill of old friends and southern fried chicken. Plus lots of Halloween candy!
