Halloween Problem (Monster)

Halloween will be a three part party this year.  Part one starts this Saturday evening with our adult Halloween party.  Part two and three take place next weekend with the kids’ Halloween party for my mom’s group followed by the Living Dead Challenge (5K and half-marathon race).

Allan and I stepped up to be this year’s ghost hosts with the most for the adult Halloween party.  In preparation for the party, I’ve been searching and scrolling through Pinterest to find frugal, fun ideas for food and decorating.  At this point, I need to channel the ghost of Julia Child because I would love to make a graveyard cake, witch fingers or some other spooky snack, but I don’t think I will have time.

But more importantly, I still need to throw my costume together.  I ordered Allan’s sushi chef costume the other day, but I am still trying to find all the necessary pieces for my sushi costume.  I didn’t have any luck at Goodwill the other day, but I plan to stop in again this week.

And I’ll need to do all that between doctor visits, preparing a fall festival basket to be raffled off at my kids’ school, packing for a camping trip and running 12 miles on top of all the usual business such as homework, dinner, after school activities, etc.

As you can see, I have so much going on right now.  The Halloween party is just the monster problem escape I need and a perfect excuse to drink have fun with my friends.

For the next two Music Mondays, I will be sharing my favorite Halloween tunes.  I would love to hear what Halloween songs move your spirit.  Link up and play along…if you dare.  Muhahahahahahaha!

    Girl, I love this. I never heard it before. She’s really got a cute voice. She sounds a tad like Rihana don’t you think? I surprised to see Will I am in there, but too cool. Thanks for sharing. Our Spotlight Dancer has something about Halloween every day of this month. You should go check her out. Some of it is just too weird or too funny. Thanks for sharing this one loved it!

    I LOVE Halloween, so this all sounds like so much fun! Love the idea of a sushi costume. I know all-too-well the multiple runs to Goodwill looking for just the right costume part.
