I have a few Halloween traditions & one of them is watching my special anniversary edition DVD of Halloween. 1978 Jamie Lee Curtis, I love you so much.
Another Halloween tradition ("tradition") is throwing a Halloween party. This year was our fourth party. I spent too long cleaning, cooking & obsessively re-arranging furniture, so I was still getting dressed when our friends started arriving. Oops! Luckily, Jenn & Rogers were some of our first guests & Jenn jumped in & made one of my dips while I finished getting ready. Thanks, gurl!
This year, I decided to dress up as Material Ghoul, aka a scary version of Madonna's "Material Girl". I finally found a pink dress, albeit one with a halter top, & my awesome friend Natalie cut that halter top off & hemmed it. Voila! A pink strapless dress! Thanks, Natalie!
This picture above was my Pinterest Halloween makeup inspiration. Seems do-able, right? Right...
Makeup FAIL. Well, I tried. I needed better makeup. Next year. Luckily, no one else had seen the Pinterest picture, so everyone thought I looked terrifying. I especially freaked out a couple East Nasty friends who have only seen me in running gear. Ha!
This year's party was AWESOME! Thank you all so much for coming. I know I say this every time, but I swear, this was the most people we've ever had in our house. And you all dressed up! OMG, your costumes were so good. I'm looking at you, Mary Katherine & Marshall. My friend Brian took pictures & I'll post them as soon as he gets them all uploaded. Stay tuned!
A lot of my friends brought food, which helped a lot. Owl Katie: thank you for the vegetarian chili! June Carter Cash Katie: thank you for the pumpkin dip! I ate it all day Sunday!
Aside from eating leftover pumpkin dip, the only things I did on Sunday were watch AMC's Fear Fest & read the latest People magazine. This in-depth investigation they did on girls who date guys who look like their dad is especially hard-hitting. I suggest you all go out & get a copy. Life changing.
Linda didn't do a lot on Sunday either. Running around & getting petted all night at the party is probably the most exercise she's had all year. She woke up & watched Cujo (Cujo!) with me, but other than that, she slept all day. Bless her...
Happy Almost Halloween!
