I like Halloween more and more every year. I make more of an effort to dress up now (this year the teacher man and I were Don and Betty Draper from “Mad Men”, and last year we were Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse from “True Blood”) and get excited to see everyone’s costumes, decorations and of course, bowls of sugary sweets.
We hit up a couple of fun Halloween parties over the weekend, including my oh-so-creative coworker’s amazingly decorated annual Halloween party. There we spotted a sassy Nicki Minaj, Guy Fieri, Mrs. George (the fabulous mom from “Mean Girls”) and of course, Jesus.
Though I’m not recreating my Betty Draper outfit for the work Halloween costume contest this year (I mean, I work in advertising…I’m sure Mrs. Draper has been done), I have had the Halloween spirit — and glittery remains — draped across my desk for the past month. Meet Agent Orange, a naughty client who didn’t cooperate with his beloved copywriter:
Besides admiring all the kooky costumes and fun decor, one of my favorite parts of the Halloween holiday season is visiting the pumpkin patch. I’ve got obsessing over which ones to choose down to an art, and this year the teacher man and I came home with five pumpkins to carve and decorate. Tonight we’ll spend the night gutting pumpkins, roasting seeds and watching (or not watching…) Monday night football.
We’ll see if any spooky goblins and ghouls come to the door asking for candy tonight. If not, you can bet I’ll be snacking on Halloween candy into at least the first half of November.
What are you doing to celebrate Halloween tonight? What did you do over the weekend? Tell me about it in the comments section.
