TRICK OR TREAT

What's not to love about Halloween? Dressing up? Free Candy? Spirit? Sounds like a day of fun! Okay, yes, I will admit that I'm a self-proclaimed Halloween dork. I eagerly shop for my outfit at Value Village. I coo at all the adorable little kids. I trick-or-treat instead of party. And I munch on candy for months (literally!). I love Halloween.

^A fat tourist in the sea of cutesy cats and cowgirls? I told you I was a dork.

I was so excited to finally find someone to go trick-or-treating with me. It's always been an event I look forward to. I wish I took a picture of my organization of candy (okay, every little kid sorts their candy into piles!), but I guess that's a little embarrassing.

I literally was out, door-to-door, until the last possible minute!

I love candy so much that, last year, I decorated my laptop with candy wrappers! Yummy!

I feel like this post is on the verge of embarrassing, but I don't have any shame. Halloween is probably one of my guilty pleasures. I was pretty let down this year by the lack of dressing up (ahem, wearing a mask with your regular clothes is not a costume!) and the lack of trick-or-treaters. I hope that Halloween isn't a dying holiday. I love it! And I love all your comments (har-har, I'm so sneaky at concluding). Posting will be slow this week, just as a heads up. So, boo-hoo (har-har, get it?! like, a ghost? Um..) Thanks so much for stopping by!

How was your Halloween? Post links to any pictures!

haha, love your laptop. i never understood why anyone would ever give up the chance to dress up... people these days. ;) and unfortunately, i wasn't feeling too great, so no stick-or-treating for me... i got to hand out candy. (which is nearly as much fun, if you've ever seen the kids in the neighborhood.)

I love your costume. Very hilarious!
I love halloween as well, didn't have much money and time to go out and purchase some things for the costume I was making, I wanted to be a girl version of tim burton's Mad Hatter. But instead I just put something together out of the things in my closet.
I also really like what you did with your candy wrappers.

Oh my goodness I love your halloween costume, its so good! And i'm so jealous that you could go trick or treating, where I lived growing up no one goes so I have never been trick or treating! I have posted pictures of my halloween costume on my blog. I'm a big halloween fan too!xo

LMAO. You're awesome. Why have any shame? :D

Ms. Royal Reigns said...

Your costume is pure genius! I'm much more of a lurker on your blog but that costume alone had to make me drop a few lines.

And the candy wrappers as a laptop cover? Cute. I hope for some of the wrappers, you licked off the crumbs/chocolate before placing it on the laptop? lol.

Anywho, since I'm here, let me continue: For being only 15years old, you have so much style & creativity beyond your years. It's awe-inspiring, really. Take care. :o)
