SCENES FROM HALLOWEEN WEEKEND







Hey there to all my little monsters!

It's the week of Halloween and I can't say our weekend was spent very crazily. Most of our weekend was spent indoors, as I'm pretty sure that it hasn't stopped raining ever since I walked out of work on Friday (boo!). We are getting the rain and wind effects from hurricane Sandy (prayers to all of you on the East coast in it's path!), and it makes me want to just cuddle up on the couch all weekend. Oh wait, I did. We still found the energy to make it to the new casino that just opened up 2 weeks ago in Columbus and spent the afternoon there on Saturday. The casino is about 10 minutes from our house and is pretty big - it has 4 restaurants and an O-H bar which is basically a sports lounge where you can watch football games. I was really impressed with how nice the casino is and even though we aren't big casino goers - it's fun that we have it in our city now as an option for a night out!

I was able to find a last minute costume for our friends Halloween party on Saturday, but it wasn't my original plan that I mentioned to you guys on Friday. I was planning on dressing up as a troll with Steph, but I couldn't find some of the things that I needed for it, so I went to plan B. I knew I wanted to still wear a tutu (in fact-I wore it all day..why the heck not?), so I just bought some stuff to be a peacock! It wasn't my most creative costume to date, but it worked. Billy also wasn't feeling his Mad Hatter costume, so he wore his old Spiderman costume. I'm really glad we ended up going to the party because I got to catch up with my girlfriends and there were some amazing costumes, like the Duck Dynasty cast. Tell me how amazing those costume are?! LOVE it. House parties > heading to the bar in the cold. That is my final conclusion. Also, my girlfriend Angela was Katniss from the Hunger Games. I'm not kidding when I say she looked just like her - you can't tell in the pic above (she's the one in all black) but she had a backpack full of bow and arrows and other hilarious hiking tools.

Sunday, I got my hair done (fresh new highlights make a girl real happy) and then me and Billy went out to lunch, but that was the end of productivity for the day. I literally didn't move off the couch the rest of the afternoon/evening. I flipped from Hocus Pocus, the Twilight marathon, to watching all recent episodes of my new favorite show - Nashville.



oh.my.word...I'm in love with this show. Who else watches it and why didn't you tell me to watch it sooner? Huh? Huh? 

Wednesday nights now have a new exciting factor. Favorite character? Deacon. Don't make me say why. :)

How was your Halloween weekend?
Did you dress up?

In regards to the hurricane, I can't help but remember our trip to Boston around this same time last year when a hurricane came on our last day there. My aunt was cooking food in the oven and ordered lobsters from down the street when the power went out, but we had a nice candlelight dinner. Haha. We ended up going down to the water to see the high tide and it was SO crazy windy and scary! Prayers to everyone!

Even though the weather is still going to be cold and nasty here - I'm looking forward to passing out candy to all the trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood, and getting Rocky in his costume this week. Mu ha ha ha...I just love his little costume. I will share pictures afterwards ;)

  2. I do love Nashville - it's just a little slow sometimes. But it has great fashion and great hair and I think it will get better as the story develops!! And the peacock was adorable. A tutu and feathers speak directly to my heart : )
