It’s Halloween, but I work from home so I don’t think I’ll bother squeezing into the Sexy Watermelon costume I bought last year. I never got to wear it because our plans last year fell through (and we just just got back from Panama).sexy watermelon

I think I’m headed to my mom’s to go trick-or-treating with my little brother (this is probably the last year before he’s too cool for me) after work. So, I am excited to get into the Halloween Spirit!

Here is a look back on my costumes from Halloween’s past…

Question: What was your costume this year?

I really should have been Alana from Honey Boo Boo because that was me as a kid Winking smile

    I made a giant rat costume and put a pouch on the front for my candy, it was great when I went trick or treating because I didn’t have to carry my candy bag (i’m lazy like that)

  2. Mary says

    i was so tempted to be honey boo boo haha i was a bee (boring). im pretty sure your penguin costume picture is the best ever. i love the facial expression haha

  3. Kelsey says

    Love the costumes! I was Wonder Woman this year. I can’t wait for trick or treaters, our neighborhood is packed with kids.

    First, Good Luck on your travels to NYC! It might be an odd experience but I know you’ll make the best of it. Love love love your costumes from past Halloweens. I was on Saturday a flight attendant because I’ve been flying a bunch, also it was the only costume that “roomie” would agree to dress up as my counterpart. Although, one patron at our late night dinner thought I was Anne Romney with Mitt. So weird.

    I love love love that Sally costume!!

    This weekend I dressed up as Kit from A League of Their Own. I’m going to a post-Halloween party this weekend with my husband and I’ll be the Evelyn to his Jimmy Dougan. My MIL even made our dog a Stilwell Angel costume, even though he won’t be attending the party with us. :)

    Unrelated to Halloween–can I ask what’s that red stuff on your oats? Do you put jam on top along with the nut butter?

    Oh my, your Wonder Woman costume was super adorable! I wish I could’ve been that as a kid! This year, we had 2 parties and I dressed up as a Gold Digger (or a play on that). I wore all gold (including gold shoes!) and had money pinned to me and a tiny shovel.

  7. says

    Love the wonder woman costumes! This year I was a cat one night (easiest/simplest/cheapest costume) and then I was Katy Perry- with a blue wig, candy accessories and cupcake shirt. It was pretty cool and one (really drunk) girl even came up to me with tears in her eyes telling me I was her idol! Enjoy trick-or-treating with your brother, I wish I was with mind tonight to do the same.

    I love the pictures of your costumes from previous years, and I love the watermelon costume – I totally think you should wear it today! This year I’m pregnant with my first so of course I had to incorporate my prego belly. I’m not too creative though so I just used a tutorial on pinterest to paint a “baby skeleton” pattern onto the belly of a maternity shirt. It’s kind of fun because I’m 23 weeks along, and a lot of people don’t realize I’m pregnant yet, so I’ve been getting a lot of questions so far :)

    omgsh, your throwback halloween pics – sooooo cute!!! Aw, totally made me smile!!

    P.S. I have*never* gotten through level 2 of 6week/6pack. I don’t even know what goes on beyond 5/6 minutes of that portion. hahah

    Happy Halloween!

    My 18 month old and I are going to be matching pumpkins (I am very pregnant so it works) and I couldn’t be more excited to take her trick or treating for the first time.

    I am *obsessed* with your Wonder Woman costumes, I used to dress up in mine as a toddler all the time, my daughter will be rocking that next year!

  11. Susan says

    Sadly, no costume this year but I used to work for a Professional Sports organization and we had a Halloween party for kids every year. I’ve been Snow White, Raggedy Ann, Dorothy, Donald Duck (I can mostly talk like him), Minnie Mouse.

    I really miss HAVING to do that for work. :(

  12. says

    I was Ariel, and my friends were other princesses. It was quite precious. I’m a fan of the sexy watermelon though. Who knew fruit could be sexy?

  13. says

    Oh my gosh – your costumes made me laugh!
    I was dressed up for work today and thought about wearing a tiara (leftover from 4th of July) and tell people I was the Duchess of Cambridge.

  14. Gloria says

    You were too adorable as a kid! I love it. My sister was actually Honey Boo Boo this year and then let my boyfriend borrow the costume on a different night. It was pretty funny. I was Daria, but to the 18-20 year olds that were also out that night, I was just a frumpy looking woman.

  15. says

    Haha please tell me you wore that sexy watermelon costume around the house today. Just imagine what Ben would have done when he got home. 😉

  16. says

    Happy Halloween! No costume for me yesterday – first, I worked late and second, Halloween is unfortunately not a biggie around here. But hey, I enjoy looking at everyone’s pics, especially my nieces who went trick-a-treating in their neighbourhood. They’re in Houston.

  17. says

    Yeah, I got in the shower yesterday morning and there was a huge centipede. Not gonna lie. I haven’t showered since. Very frightful Halloween indeed!
