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,cough) sexy, 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.
