Back in Arkansas, the real estate company I worked for participated in Halloween on the Hill. It was a huge neighborhood trick or treating event, and was pretty much hell on earth. We gave out thousands of pieces of candy within the span of a few hours. Some of the kids were cute. They wore proper costumes, and had buckets or Halloween bags to collect the candy. Others were not. There was a ridiculous amount of teenagers, not in costume, with plastic grocery bags. Then there was the pregnant teenager who said (and I’ll never forget this. Ever.) “I’m trick-or-treating for the unborn.” WTF. Here is a very SMALL sampling of the candy we passed out. The conference room floor was always lined with bags as well. I’ve never been a big Halloween fan, and two years of that killed what little pleasure I did find in the holiday. But for some reason, this year my Halloween spirit is back! And here is some stuff I am LOVING.
These “pun-kins” are seriously the greatest things ever. I’m totally making these next year!
Also from Studio DIY, this cereal bowl costume is pretty much the greatest thing ever. I kind of wish I had crazy Halloween plans, so I could make this. Maybe next year though.
This Nordic Ware Skull cakelet pan is seriously cool. It’s a little on the pricey side, and I absolutely do NOT need another specialty cake pan, but I absolutely love this. Hopefully it’ll go on sale November 1 😉
And if you’re in the Hampton Roads area, here is a pretty comprehensive list of fun things to do for Halloween. G and I will not be in town for any Halloween fun. Instead, we’ll be in Charlotte, and spending Halloween with friends… the friends in this photo to be exact.This little gem was taken in 2000… I can’t believe it was 15 years ago. We’ll be spending Halloween at Heather’s house with her and her husband, and Randy, and his wife Melanie. I would gladly sacrifice a kidney to be this skinny, and this able to wear “pleather” pants again.
So, Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has a fun & safe holiday!
