Halloween 2012

I absolutely love Halloween, and this year’s was definitely no exception. Here’s how my night went:

At the last minute and at the last place I looked, I found an inexpensive (less than twenty dollars!) costume that I fell in love with. That is when I knew that for Halloween 2012, I would become a mermaid for the night.

My husband just went out as his (cough, boring,coughsexy, cool self:

I had fun with some of my lovely friends. You know, like a Ninja Turtle and a Vegas showgirl and Kiss:

I also met some pretty interesting characters, such as:

Dead Steve Erwin (I don’t know why I’m giving a thumbs up…..I am not happy that Steve is dead!):

Creepy zombie with creepy zombie baby (IT MOVED!):

Really freakin’ scary clown with pretend butt cheeks:

My friend Patrick even managed to advertise our on-campus radio show ON the winners of the costume contest aka Light Bulb and Socket:

Simply put, it was just a pretty perfect Halloween.

Before going out last night, I went for an evening jog. It was beginning to get dark and the weather was breezy and cool. Trick-or-treaters were just starting to appear and it was one of those nights where I could practically feel magic in the air. Somewhere in the midst of my run, I thought to myself, “This is the only Halloween I will ever be twenty-three. I can never get this back again.” Simple and obvious as this thought was, it was still a reminder to soak up and enjoy every moment that night. So I did.

    Love your hair! and your costume of course. YOu do really pull off mermaid well. Except your bangs. Although they’re cute on you (obviously) a mermaid wouldn’t have bangs because she lives in the water and bangs in the ocean is just inconvenient. Stupid humans! =PP
