I am probably driving everyone “batty” with all my Facebook and Instagram posts about Halloween! But, here is another just to make sure I cover all forms of my social media outlets!!! 😉
I don’t remember being that overly excited for Halloween as a child. I mean, it was kind of fun to dress up as a gypsy, vampire, cheerleader, clown, black cat, etc. I almost always had these costumes made by my lovely Grandmother until I got a bit older and it was no longer “cool”.
When I was younger, You couldn’t of paid me to watch any Halloween or scary movies or TV shows. I’m still working on being courageous enough to watch the “Saw” movies. I HATE gore and blood and anything overly violent (so sensitive) But since I’ve met the BF, I can proudly say I have watched most of the Jason and Micheal Myers movies ( It still counts if I covered my face for most of them though, right?)
In high school and university years… Halloween was a bit different! As Lindsey Lohen said in Mean Girls ” In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”…..Preach, Girl!!
*covers face in shame*
Fast forward a bit of time and now Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year (minus Christmas, I LOVEEEE Christmas to the point of being annoying! Can’t wait to bust out the ol Reindeer Sock Bun again 🙂 )
Being an “adult” and I use that term lightly…I love Halloween & watching children come trick or treating in their cute, little costumes. I also love the Candy and chips and bars and pop that is left behind when only 10 kids come to the house!! ( however, my waistline does not…..)
I also love the fact that as I got older, my Halloween makeup skills have got a bit better!
