A Blood Thirsty Crowd

Hey there 🙂

Every year when October 1st comes around, I think “oh, it’s Halloween this month.” But it’s a fleeting thought. The thought that leaves as soon as it entered my brain, and then I don’t think about it again until ohh…30 days later.

So every year on the day of the Halloween party I’m attending I’m either running around town putting together a costume or worse, rummaging through storage digging out last year’s costume.

Needless to say, Halloween isn’t a huge holiday to me 😉

I wish I were one of those people who knows what they’re going to be for Halloween the week after this year’s Halloween, but I’m not. I love summer so much that even thinking about Halloween too early brings about memories of freezing cold nights and big heavy coats.

But every year when it comes around, I figure out something last minute, and it always ends up being a blast 🙂

So yesterday morning after getting in a six miler on the treadmill and training a client, I set out to buy a couple costumes:



Some how some other stores’ bags got in my car, too 😉

So what are we going to be?



Definitely making vampire noises instead of saying cheese for this picture – heh

Sure it’s a little generic, but seeing that I have a recent obsession with True Blood, it fit the part. Plus, it’s an easy costume! After a couple selfies (self-timer-pictures) we headed to Kristin’s to par-tay!

Surprisingly, we were the most dressed up out of all the people at the party. Well, I take that back, Dog the Bounty Hunter and Beth (my friends Doug and Heidi) gave us a run for our money;)


Kristin and her hubby, Gaston, the pirate hosts:



Kristin went all out on the decorations with scary music, spider webs, tons of Halloween themed food, and eyeballs (which were used later for beer pong! Beer pong?!)

During the night the whole group played some cards, played Apples to Apples, and then finished off the night with a little beer pong! What a fun night!

Shane and I headed home a little before midnight. We were getting a little hungry and didn’t want to feed on our victims 😉




The Halloween festivities continue today with a trip to the Frightening Farmer’s Market and then a walk on the Haunted Trail!

For those who dress up for Halloween, how far in advance do you get your costume? Is it a 3 month long scheme or a day of rush?

Best costume you’ve seen/heard of this year so far?

  1. Your costume looks great! I would have no idea you put it together last minute. I don’t really have anything I go to where I dress up as anymore. Back in college though I would get my costume usually a couple weeks before.

    Hope you have a great day today!

  2. Hahaha love your costumes!!! I have a party tonight and still have no CLUE what I’m going to be, whoops!

  3. Love your costumes!

  4. In my group of college friends, if you didn’t know your costume at least 2 months before, you were crazy. This year it was sort of a random idea the week before…

  5. Love the costume ideas. We are so lame that we haven’t dressed up in three years!!! Two years ago we were on our honeymoon, and the last two years we just havent bothered with it….

    Have a great weekend!

  6. omg LOVE THE COSTUMES!!!!!!!!

    I wanna come out and party with YOU!! 🙂

  7. haha! Love the costumes 🙂 We went to a Halloween party on Friday and there was a guy that was Tiger Woods and he had two blow-up, hooker-looking dolls attached to him lol..that made me giggle. There was also a guy there that was dressed as a one-night stand. He looked like a nightstand with drawers and wine glasses and bra on top 😀 How clever!

  8. I love all the costumes! Especially yours!
