Happy (belated) Halloween

I'm a week late on this but Happy Halloween. Or, happy November 7th everyone! I just took down all my Halloween decorations and it made me a bit sad. I feel like I didn't make the most of the fall this year because I never got around to it. Plus, everything is more fun with friends. I will have to be more organized. Last year I had a SUPER fun party at my place so I'll have to get in gear and do it again next year. Also need to go the apple orchard. That was a tradition with a certain someone so I feel like next year I will be rid of the sad feelings associated with it and have a blast going there again.

On to the pictures! I am not finding the pictures from my pumpkin carving mini party on Friday so I will add those when I find them. Megan and her adorable kiddos came over and my cousin brought her lovely self and her two fur kiddos. We carved pumpkins, survived a broken vase and a meltdown. Then Megan took her kids home and Sarah and I (plus fur babies) watched New Moon. She just finished the books and wanted to watch it. She didn't think Jacob was hot but was easily convinced otherwise once he became a wolf, cut his hair and got crazy buff. Ah good times.

Saturday, I went over to Allison's party and had a blast with her and Emma and all of their friends. Then, I headed out to karaoke it up with the birds aka ABBA. So fun! I was I Love Lucy which I think I will have to recreate again because it was so fun!

    You look amazing!

  3. i still think you should have won the costume contest. you looked amazing!

  4. Your costume is beautiful. In fact, I'm almost hesitant to call it that because it's such a perfect dress, I feel like it could easily be worn every day! You look stunning! Your friends' outfits are cute as well~ 

  5. I would totally wear this dress again (without the crinoline I think). I got it in the swap because it's so cute but it worked perfectly as a costume too!

  6. Well, I should have at least come in 3rd... :)

  7. That's too sweet! I feel like a could definitely wear it again, probably less retro and more modern styling though.
