Ah, Halloween. Part 1 of pre-Christmas festivities. At least that’s how I see it in my mind. Thanksgiving is Part 2. I mean, isn’t Thanksgiving just pre-Christmas? It’s a day of eating and being with family, and basically just giving you a preview of how the whole amazing month of December is going to be, and I’m not complaining. I’m a Christmas fanatic so my mind basically just thinks in terms of Christmas the entire year. Every summer I think, “Oh boy, we’re halfway there!” I just love it so much!
Halloween isn’t exactly my favorite of all of the holidays. I enjoy it more for the time of year it’s in and that it means that fall is here. But it’s not as fun when you’re not a little kid and have to buy your own candy.
Since I’ll be working this Halloween and don’t have any plans, I’m not planning on dressing up this year, so I wore the next best thing for a Halloween look: all black. If you want to put very little effort into a costume, which is what I usually do, you could throw some cat ears on with this look and be good to go. I know a lot of Halloween connoisseurs are probably thinking, “Wow, that’s the most pathetically lazy costume idea I’ve ever heard,” but I promise I’ll make up for it around Christmas. If there is one thing I am not around Christmas, it’s pathetically lazy.
I hope you all had a great weekend and are getting ready for super fun Halloween festivities next week! Here’s a festive idea from the book of “How Hayley Celebrates Halloween”: sit on your couch with a bottle of wine and some Milky Ways, and maybe watch some Law & Order: SVU, because that’s as scary as you get. You’ll be in for a fun night!
