Dressing up for Halloween is something I look forward to every single year. I am pretty positive that we haven't missed wearing a costume in over 10 years. I start planning and pinning ideas months in advance. I am not embarrassed to admit that I pinned this year's idea last Halloween.
Our friends hosted a party in our neighborhood on Saturday night. Let me just say that they are the host/hostess with the mostest...food, cocktails of all sorts, decorations from ceiling to floor and music that had us all sweating. I am sure their next door neighbors weren't too thrilled when the hours of the
late night wee morning hit.
I don't think the laughter or smiles left a single mouth the entire time. Everyone outdid themselves with costumes. Scrolling through the 200+ photos that I have on my camera had me rolling Sunday morning. It's the one night out of the year that we can be someone or something else, be as silly as we want and take more photos than most people do at their weddings.
I wanted to share a few Halloween costume ideas for you to pin, take mental pictures of, get some ideas for next year and also brag on how crazy cool my neighborhood buddies are. I hope you enjoy, ooh and ahh and possibly get a laugh out of our night too.
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water.
The gracious party planners...who doesn't love Buddy and his gorg little elf?
Amish Mafia....I snorted when I saw them. One of my faves of the night.
Smokey and the Bandit
A Top Gun Classic
Cousin Eddie & Catherine from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. They NAILED it with the moose cups and all. Another fave!
Swamp People...I mean, those props!
Despicable Me....people, SHE made her costume!
Pair of ta-tas in a breastfeeding cover up....seriously DIED.
The cutest pilots ever!
Blades of Glory. Watch this trailer if you are confused....then you will DIE. They were the BIG winners of the night. Best costume I have ever witnessed with my own eyes. Yes, they wore those shoes all evening and even danced them. They 100% deserved this year's trophy.
The Big Bang Theory
Shrek and Fiona
And just to humor myself, here is one more of us. Ross, you are a trooper. Thank you for always being such a super star sport. You never gripe, complain or roll your eyes when Halloween rolls around. This year was one of my favorites that we have come up with. I can't wait to see what I rope you into next year!
Thanks again, Kim and Rob. You guys are beyond amazing and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that this night was one for the books with stories to be told for years. This is just a small piece of our neighborhood pie. Anyone and everyone are welcome anytime. I can promise you this; YOU will have a good time.
Happy Halloween week. Next up, Snickers, Twix, Skittles, Twizzlers and Reese's Pieces....bring on the candy.
