Halloween 2015: Weekend Recap

Halloween 2015: Weekend Recap

Halloween this year was so much fun. I shared how much I love it in my last post, but now I think I know why: It’s a great excuse to be creative, wear crazy makeup and go all out, which is right up my alley. I also feel like more people got into it this year than in recent years past. Maybe it’s just because we threw a Halloween party and the only requirement was that everyone had to dress up, but whatevs.

Jimmy and I spend the last two weeks collecting Halloween decor and decorating the outside and inside of our house. Unfortunately we only had like six kids come to our door (sad face), but we had a pretty decent turnout for the party (happy face!). Like always, I made our costumes completely from scratch and loaded our faces with makeup and special effects. We have always been something cute, coupley or sexy, so this year we decided to go the “spooky” route: He was a zombie and I was a mummy. I saw this video from my favorite YouTube beauty guru which inspired my costume, and it was so much fun!  I’m not kidding you – we take costumes very seriously.

My girlfriend Sasha drove up from Orlando to stay with us for the weekend, so we kicked off the festivities by carving pumpkins Friday night. (Side note: This was her FIRST TIME carving a pumpkin … WHAT?!). We spent Saturday afternoon decorating, making food for the party and getting ready, then it was party time. Friends showed up around nine and it was party time excellent for the next five hours, strobe lights, fog machine and all. Oh, and the prize for Best Costume went to the boobs, obviously!

Sunday a few of us went to brunch out at the beach, stopped by our favorite beach bar for a cocktail, snagged our first Red Cup of the season, and headed home to watch Elf and relax on the couch. (Yes, we experienced Halloween and Christmas in the same weekend, and it was glorious. I’m SO happy to be done watching horror/scary movies!) It was such a fun weekend full of creativity, laughs, awesome people, and a ton of pictures. Instead of describing it all in detail, I’ll just let you look through some of the pictures yourself … they’ll do a better job recapping everything. Thanks for participating in my shenanigans yet again, friends!

And if you’re still not over Halloween, I’ll leave you with this. Because we all know this is the best part about Halloween, anyway.
