Halloween Weekend

Happy Halloween everyone!
It's time for a little weekend recap, shall we?

On Friday, we stopped by my parent's house to celebrate this little lady's third birthday.

That's my niece Bridget Grace, and I'm telling you, she's gonna be a heart breaker.  But then again, I might be biased.

Anyway, after the party, JEGs and I ran around to finish up our Halloween costumes.  This year I was bound and determined to wear a couple's costume because we never do.  So after tossing around a bunch of ideas (Snooki and The Situation, angel and devil, dead bride and groom), this is what we came up with:

We were dressed as a ring master and the world's strongest man!

I gathered my costume from H&M ( blazer), Forever 21 ( shorts), Target ( tights) and Icing (iiitty bitty top hat).  So basically I shopped at a bunch of stores I am too old for, and was that awkward adult amongst a bunch of teeny-boppers.  Creeper.

JEGs getup was actual a caveman's costume, complete with bizarre furry cuffs.  We snipped off the faux fur and added a mustache for that vintage-inspired look.

We headed out to Lancaster for a house party, and the other party-goers came out in style:

Bonnie and Andy played up the fact that Bonnie is six months pregnant by dressing up as Juno and Paulie Bleeker

Mandy and Evan were easily the most sophisticated as Posh and Becks:


..and the award for the most dead-on-ringer goes to Mike, who dressed as his doppelganger, Chris Daughtry

Mike's fiance, Lauren, also went for the music-inspired look and was a Black-Eye Pea.


We had a great time, I drank too much, and by the end of the night I was passed out on a chair.

Classy, I know.

Most of Sunday was spent recovering from said good time, until about 4:30.  Our friends Connie and Joe were hosting a haunted backyard for the neighborhood kids to walk through.  We volunteered to help out and I played a very convincing camper who was killed by a masked murder (aka, JEGs).

I'll be looking for my Emmy in the mail. 

We headed home and curled up in front of the TV with some hot chocolate and Ghost Hunters Live.  After about 45 minutes, we realize how boring Ghost Hunters Live was, and caught up on Survivor.

So how was your Halloween?  More tricks then treats?  Any good costumes?

Always & Forever,
  ME

Haha awesome. Um, btw, I went out looking for a tiny top hat for gabe's costume and the girl at Michael's says, "Everyone is looking for those this year". Um, now I know why! Between you and the brides, it's tiny top hat town!

btw, you managed to pull off the elusive "hot but not slutty costume". bravo.
