2015 Halloween Bash Report

The 10th Annual Halloween Bash has come and gone. Costumes were worn, cupcakes were eaten, Candy Corn Shots were taken. I believe a good time was had by all. Admittedly, things have changed over the years. This is officially the first Bash where pacifiers were lost in the shuffle. And I'm referring to legitimate toddler pacifiers, ...

How to Halloween as an adult

How do kids Halloween? They put on costumes, ranging from store-bought printed plastic child-size garbage bags to phenomenally intricate creations labored over by intensely crafty parents. They wear these costumes, grab a hauling utensil (from more garbage bags to jack-o-lantern shaped buckets), head out and gleefully run from house to house demanding candy. Occasionally they ...

Halloween costumes over the years

So, Halloween. Halloween is my jam. Yesterday, Michael Kors tweeted a theory on why everyone loves Halloween, and he nailed it. And I do LOVE Halloween. Love it so much that this year we're celebrating 10 years of my Annual Halloween Bash! Not quite as many celebrities as Heidi's Halloween party, but I'm working on it. As usual, despite ...

Puzzling #HASHTAGHUMPDAY Confessions

In an attempt to move on gracefully from my Gloomy Gus post, yesterday, where I basically threw myself a pity party and questioned my self-worth, I'm going to move forward with Life with Lolo and #HASHTAGHUMPDAY, one of my very favorite link-ups. I'm also turning my #HASHTAGHUMPDAY into confessions so that I can link up with Alanna ...

Anticlimactic Halloween Report

The camera charger/USB cord finally arrived! That's the good news. Read on. Consider yourself warned - the things of which I remembered taking pictures, and the things of which pictures were actually taken don't exactly match up. So, a month later, what follows is a poorly documented recap of the Annual Halloween Bash. You have my apologies. To ...

Post procrastination – Halloween report

I did play around with Postcrastination and Propostination, but they just weren't working out. So, Halloween. Obviously Halloween is near and dear to my heart, and basically what the rest of my year revolves around. Yet, I've provided no indication of how this year's Annual Halloween Bash went or even what costume I ended up choosing. I know, I ...

Halloween Tombstone Decoration How-To

If you had any remaining doubts, let me clear things up for you: I love Halloween. LOVE. HALLOWEEN. While I've accumulated some great decorations over the years, I'm always looking for new additions. The selection in stores this year was particularly disappointing. Not to mention that most of the Halloween decorations were cleared out prior to October ...

Halloween costume quest 2014

I've been here before. It's nearly the midpoint of October and I have yet to settle on what my Halloween costume will be. You may remember, from previous posts Costume Conundrum and Halloween Bash Report, that I hold an annual Halloween party - costumes required. While the event was briefly suspended due to wedding planning ...

Halloween Bash Costume Report

While children around the country will be celebrating Halloween tomorrow*, going door-to-door in search of sugary gifts, many of us (having passed the trick-or-treating acceptable age) feted the event early, over the past weekend.  On Saturday night, my home served as location to an annual, costume-required, party:  Halloween Bash VIII. I can honestly say that turnout this year produced more fabulous costumes than ever before! After ...
