I don't want to grow up and get boring.

So, I am not letting myself. I thoroughly ADORE dressing up, and now that my "going out" routine has changed significantly since being deprived of a largely shared wardrobe, Natalie's iTunes collection, and some forgotten dance moves, I have to take advantage of every presented opportunity. That is, to both dress up and go out.

Halloween, HELLO...a major convenience.

One such occasion = Witches Night, one of my favorite nights of the year.

Our group is down to 3. Sad.

(Macarena witches. Love it.)

Second occasion = the real deal. Halloween. Naturally, my sweet husband was working that night, so attempting to woo him and actually having a legitimate reason to dress up was out of the question.

Instead, a friend who will remain unnamed and I searched out masked costumed. Masked? Yes, so we could run around wherever anonymously and do anything we wanted without having our identity revealed. Unleashed and unashamed.

Obviously, this girl is my bff for a good reason. The duo was supposed to be Gumby and Pokey, but by the time I ignored my inclination to exercise some maturity and returned to the store, the Gumbies were sold out. 2 Pokies? Sure.

Oh, by the way…my husband got off work early and his parents happened to be in town. I had to explain to the in-laws why their son’s 24 y/o wife couldn’t come to dinner.

I just really love this pic… Brian and his siblings had matching costumes his mom made. Aww.

i'm totally boring now...
and it seems hard to remedy when taking care of a baby (who goes to bed at 8, needs to eat...etc.)

your pokey costumes are hilarious! I also love the penguin costumes. Craig's favorite animal.

Ashton you will never be boring!
First, you look gorgeous as always in your witches costume. Second, thank you for dressing up. Don't worry Billy always has to explain my weird quirks to my in-laws. Third, I love Brian's old Halloween pic!
Yes, please come to spin, I can get you in for free:)
