Finish This: Week Forty-three

Friends.... it is November next week. Gulp. November always freaks me out because it means that the year is almost over and that the holidays are racing towards us and that it's going to get cold. Actually, the end of October hasn't been that toasty, so maybe November is good because it means the cold is going to end soon-ish? Three months isn't too long, right?

Enough with the weather - let's Finish This! As per usual, this link-up is hosted by the marvelous Jen at The Arizona Russums, Becky at The Java Mama, Lisa at Coastlined, and Nicole at Three 31.

As a kid, my favorite Halloween costume was {I'll just let the images speak for themselves}

I was a baker with Minnie Mouse, a princess, and a clown

I was a book of ferry tickets with an M&M, a Hawaiian dancer, other sister. Sorry, Sis. 

As an adult, I celebrate Halloween by hanging out in costume with my friends! Last year a group of us went to see Benedict Cumberbatch and Johnny Lee Miller in Danny Boyle's "Frankenstein." This year Cami and I are road-tripping down to visit Samara. We will be in costume and there may or may not be videos after the fact... we will wait and see about the quality and share-ability.

My favorite candy is Snickers, of the types of candy generally associated with trick-or-treating. If we are including adult candy, then Lindt sea salt chocolate, hands down. 

Voila! Happy Halloween, and thanks for joining the link-up!


  1. Oh. My. Costumes. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Girllll, you are awesome. :)

  2. Aren't they great?!!? My mom was the queen of budgeted costumes, and so a painted box it is :)

  3. Love that you had older Halloween photos to share! So cute!! Especially the baker!!

  4. This is great that you have childhood pics of your costumes! I couldn't (quickly) track any down for the post.

  5. I have to give credit to my little sister - she had these up on Facebook so it was pretty easy to snag! :)

  6. Aren't they hysterical! The baker costume actually came from a ballet performance, so for many years costumes were super easy - wear what you danced in for June's performance! :)
