Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, second only to Christmas. And my husband loves it too, so we get a little excited about it together.


My work-appropriate costume (no one dresses up at my office) = Crazy Cat Lady. (So not really much of a costume for me.)

The Penguin & Poison Ivy. We ran into a Robin, but zero Batmans.

My niece and nephew were at this party. Nephew was dressed as my brother (his drawn on beard rubbed off and he didn’t want to keep his hard hat on) and my niece was Elsa of course!

So we had a lot of fun this weekend! I hope you all had a Happy Halloween as well! Did you dress up? If so, as what? Best costume you’ve ever done? I had a lot of fun with both costumes this year. I love any excuse to go crazy with the make-up and fake eyelashes.
