Not only is it the weekend, but it is Halloween weekend. That is a bunch of double goodness if you ask me. Brian and I decided at last minute to have a Halloween party tomorrow night. And by last minute I mean we officially let everyone know the time. . .this morning. So we'll see how that turns out. Some people don't like Halloween. I am a person that in fact likes Halloween a lot. I think it's a fun holiday. And yes, I guess there are some aspects about it that maybe rub me the wrong way, but I really do appreciate the holiday for what it's worth. Watching scary movies while curled up in a blanket, carving pumpkins, drinking hot chocolate in the mornings instead of orange juice, gathering articles of clothing to create a costume, going to corn mazes on the weekends. . .see, Halloween really is a grand holiday.
And here are five Halloween-themed things that have made me feel good about October 31st:
This idea is adorable. You just stack two bunt cakes on each other and make them look like a pumpkin. Festive and delicious.
I watched Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho for the first time this October and I totally appreciated it. It's funny to see how much movies have changed. Especially where this movie is rated R and could probably pass for PG in today's world. I think everyone should indulge in old horror movies. Something about a black and white horror movie just gets me. I think Alfred Hitchcock is a genius.
I came across this costume idea on Pinterest and I've already decided that years from now when Brian and I have a little demon child running around, that the demon child will be a penguin, I will be Mary Poppins, and Brian will be Bert.
Michael Jackson's classic "Thriller" music video is PERFECT for Halloween. It cracks me up every time I watch it and one day I WILL learn the dance. This also brings back memories of my first boy/girl party in middle school, because my mom set this up for us to watch. Ah, the memories.
abeautifulmess.typepad.com, when they made an easy recipe for caramel apple bites. I'm excited to try.
I hope everyone has a delightful and safe Halloween. Wish us luck on our party. We hope it comes together and turns out fun.
