A TRIP DOWN HALLOWEEN LANE

Besides the fact that my mom’s birthday falls on Halloween, I’ve always loved dressing up and going out with friends! I never really dressed up for Halloween before, only when I moved to Seattle did I realize how fun it can be to dress up as your favorite cartoon character, celebrity, princess, super hero, or occupation.

As I’m looking through halloween photos going back 10 years, I must say that I am getting old! I just don’t look forward to going to the over crowded night clubs anymore. That’s all history! It’s the house/costume parties I look forward to this time of year. Besides, who likes waiting in line to get into a club in the cold, damp Seattle weather?

Another thing that I’ve noticed from past Halloweens is that I’ve become more and more creative with my costumes. Instead of spending well over $60.00 for a skimpy costume I’d likely use once, I realized that making my own costume is cheaper, more fun, and one of a kind!

So thanks to Halloween for giving me a reason to dress up these last 10 years!

I was actually in New Mexico visiting my sister and her family! So I had to dress pretty conservatively for family trick-o-treating.
