Halloween Weekend

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I was kind of pleased that Halloween ended up being on a Sunday, because it meant I could celebrate it all weekend.

Rian and I kicked off the weekend by going to a pumpkin patch.

We got to pet horses, chase chickens, feed llamas, pick pumpkins, drink hot cider, and go on a hayride.








On Saturday night, Kerrie and I attended a Halloween party for a mutual friend.



Kerrie went as Rocky Balboa! Unfortunately, in this photo her boxing gloves are off.



I went as a 1960s bedtime person. Sadly, that was a very last-minute costume decision after my Tom Cruise Risky Business ensemble fell through. But at least I got to wear my actual 1960s vintage nightgown and robe out in public! Plus, there is nothing cozier than attending a party in pajamas. It was such a pleasant experience, I may have to do it again.



A few random pics of the night:







Kerrie and I kept it pretty tame that night, surprisingly. We just enjoyed spending time with friends we haven't seen in ages and admiring all the cool costumes.

How was your Halloween weekend?

For the fist time since the year I had food poisoning (I call it poultrygeist) I didn't get dressed up and go out. Instead the Sunday movie marathon I thought would begin at 2:00 only saw the first guest arrive at about 5:30. The first (and only) movie (Sleepaway Camp!) went in at 9:00. The only thing really marathony about it was the epic eating, but it was still awesome! Glad you had fun!! :-)

I'm a miserable Brit and don't celebrate it. I love reading you U.S guys blogs, it's a whole new world. Love your 1960's negligee outfit, very cute. xxx

Take Care!!

Looks like you had a great time! I envy you for being able to go to a pumpkin patch... there are none around here, but I used to go to one, when I still lived in Germany.

Some scary clown scared the shit out of me while I was out on the town with friends.

So I accidentally slapped him.

Whatever. That's what you get.

Tights Lover said...

How festive. I loved the photos, and you had a great costume idea! Sadly (and surprisingly?) I did not celebrate.

Oh well, maybe next year.
