Happy Halloween! Have you all had your fill of candy today? Over the course of the weekend I’ve had more than my fair share of candy! But somehow I’m still nibbling on candy corn. There’s a chance I’ll start feeling sick any minute now. Halloween is a crazy holiday. I love seeing my little “nieces” & “nephews” and the kids in my neighborhood in their ridiculously cute costumes. But the thought of kids walking around the neighborhood, knocking on strangers’ doors, holding out a bag, asking for and expecting candy is a little strange when you stop to think about it. And then on the other hand, it’s a day that’s a free pass for adults to act like idiots and dress in crazy outfits, and it’s totally acceptable. It’s a crazy day but always fun.
Unfortunately I’ve never been all that creative in the costume department, so I recycled a Cleopatra costume from a couple years ago, for a party last night. I have some creative friends though, and there were some really great costumes last night….Llyod and Harry from Dumb and Dumber, a salmon roll, a dead ringer for Johnny Depp ala Edward Scissor Hands, and one of my favorites, frozen, near-dead, life preserver clad Rose & Jack from Titanic (it was hilarious!).
I ate so many heavy meals last week when I was in Boston, I’ve been happy to keep it lite this weekend. I’m also still on a huge soup kick, which I have a feeling will be sticking around for the next few months.
