Halloween 2011

Halloween wore me out. I spent all day Saturday preparing for it (I was in charge of baked goods!), all night Saturday enjoying it, and all day sunday recovering from it.

I caught a horrible case of the rum flu at some point in the wee hours of Sunday morning, decided to head home around 2:30 and was all out defeated by that darn flu bug by the time I woke up Sunday morning ;)

In keeping up with my DIY costume streak, I dove headfirst into the holiday spirit and donned my very own Salvation Army bellringer costume! (Note to self: never incorporate a bell into your future costumes, it can and will be used as a signal for shots)



My parents throw a huge Halloween party every year, it's became a sort of tradition and gets a little bit rowdier every year. This year we had flippy cup, cornhole and beerpong ALL going at the same time in their garage!

Guy Fieri took a break from Diners, Drive-in's & Dive's to stop by the party.... 


  (Is that not HILARIOUS?! My mom bleached out his hair JUST for this costume hahaha)

Our friend Adam showed up in a Suggestion Box. That was a huge hit... by the end of the evening I think everyone of us had worn the box or wrote ALL over the box. 




All in all, I'd chalk it up as another successful Halloween. As if the fridge is any indication of that?
