Happy Monday!

Happy November all! I hope everyone had a wonderfully spooky weekend. I'm definitely in mourning today because I absolutely love Halloween - can't get enough. We usually go ALL OUT and I'm always sad when it's over and done with.

Every year my friend Kelly and I  - along with a few others - go out in Hoboken and/or NYC for the holiday, following an exceptional amount of planning and costume making.

 Here is what we have done so far:

Halloween 2006 - The Incredibles! Posing with 2 random guys as Oompa Loompas :)

Halloween 2007 - workout instructors! (but in full character - we stretched on the bar and in the middle of the dance floor, and did jumping jacks in line for the bathroom. It was hysterical, but we were spent by midnight)

Halloween 2008 - superheroes! I was Wonder Woman and friends were She-Ra and Catwoman. Amazing.

This year - Jem and the Holograms and the Misfits! I was Stormer of the misfits - I had to have that blue wig!

Next year

No clue.*

Usually we have it figured out the next day - something we see Halloween night usually strikes a cord. But this time, no go, but we always know we will be in some sort of spandex :)

What were you for Halloween?

*open to suggestions :)

That picture of the Ooompa Loompas is funny. Who says Halloween is just for kids? Adults dressing up for Halloween is a lot of fun. You guys totally rocked your costumes. =)
