Makes me super glad I got back from Oregon when I did. (I'll be sharing pics on that soon!)
Anyway, back to the bloghop .... Click on the pic below to get to HDQ and check out the other bloggers. We're talking about Halloween and scariest book and/or monster. But first! check out my post and my costume pics below ...
So I've mentioned before that werewolves were what scared the *bleep* outta me when I was a kid. As far as scary books go, I really found Stephen King's "It" to be immensely creepy. I think because he was genius enough to use a clown. I've always hated clowns (sorry clowns!) They're supposed to be funny, but they've always creeped me out. I never wanted them to come near me when I was a kid.
But hey, this is coming from the little girl who hated visiting Santa too. lol The thought of sitting on some strange old man's lap really repulsed me. So I think I did it maybe once as a child and refused to ever do it again. I know, I'm mental .....
Which is a perfect segue into my Halloween costume for the annual witches ball!
This year's theme was "Alter Ego." I really could've used a lot of ideas for this, but I went with funny. I give you ....
Yep, that's me! Mental Patient Miss Piggy. lol I wore a bathrobe and slippers, and of course the Piggy get up. Okay, so why Mental Patient Miss Piggy, you ask?? Well, I'm a little bit crazy. And as I get older, the more I realize just how crazy I am. The idea of living in an institution in my bathrobe with medicine dosage and no responsibilities but working jigsaw puzzles, really enchants me. LOL
And Miss Piggy because for one, I do love food. And for two, I've been known to have Miss Piggy rages at certain times of the month. ;) And I've just always loved how the real Miss Piggy embraced who she was. (albeit a muppet) lol
Here are some more pics of the party and costumes:
Super WOMBan and Suzie Homemaker
Super Mom and Psycho Pig
Now for the fun treats!
Kitty Litter Cake (tasted yummy but hard to overlook the obvious. lol)
Mini- mummies (pigs in blankets)
Jack o'lantern puking cabbage salad
Fruit cocktail floating head
The sign says "Men Cooking" with body parts in the pot. lol
One of the party favors: cookie that looks like melted witch with a hat and broomstick.
These party hostesses go all out with the favors and decorations and it's always a blast. It's a group of girls that I graduated high school with twenty years ago. (Wow, I'm old) And we're just now entering a 40th year of life together. (I turn 39 next month)
Anyway, my apologies if I've been behind in blog visits. I'm still trying to catch up from vacation. Wishing everyone a spooky Halloween! Are you dressing up? Have you already? Please share your costume and/or spookiest Halloween memory or monster in the comments!
