Freeze them– Candy lasts for a long time. Get them out of your face but still save some for later by throwing them in the freezer for a bit.
Bring them to the office. Is it just me or do candy bowls always go super quickly at work?
Save it for your Thanksgiving table.
You’ve been gobbled! Have you heard of this? It’s the same thing as being “booed” for Halloween or “jingled” for Christmas. Print out the flyer below and put together a few little goody bags and secretly leave them for friends!
What kind of blogger doesn’t realize that we’re only one day away from Halloween? The kind spending October at the beach, I guess. I just can’t get over the fact that TOMORROW IS HALLOWEEN! And then NOVEMBER is only one day after that…..I want to pretend that these facts aren’t real, but who am I fooling? So here’s my way of making up for alllll the blog posts that I could have written had I realized that Halloween was so close.
I’m SO excited for Halloween this year. It’s the first time in 5 years that I won’t be traveling! And because it’s on a FRIDAY Dean and I will even be dressing up and celebrating (fingers crossed)! We’ve got some costume ideas running around, but there will be no formal announcement until we have everything nailed down!
This one is super easy, but may require a little diy. Grab yourself a pair of leggings, a leotard (or one piece swimsuit!) and an old sweatshirt and you have everything you need. If your sweatshirt is super old, feel free to give it a few snips here and there, maybe even widen the neck enough to hang your sweatshirt off a shoulder to give your costume something extra. Want to take things one step farther? Add in a scrunchie/headband, leg warmers, and fun sneakers.
Here’s what you need: Black pants, black shoes, a black shirt, a black hat and /or a black bandana with eye holes cut out (opaque black stockings could also work for this!), and a little fake bag of money….tada! The key here is all black everything…well that and a bag of money.

This is probably the easiest one to do thanks to the stylish hipster wardrobe. Grab a plaid button down, extra worn-in jeans, boots and a beanie. Bonus points if you have a pair of suspenders!
And if you’re feeling really lazy, you could always just carry around a large, empty picture frame and say you’re a “self portrait” haha! What are you going to be for Halloween?
Yesterday was fun and I definitely repped my black and orange all day, but today brings even more fun for us adults- the Halloween parties! I have to work this weekend, so I originally thought it would be another costume-less year. Lucky for us, I realized that I don’t have to work until Sunday and we got invited to a Halloween party tonight! I’m super excited to pull myself together last minute with one of these costumes to enjoy my first Halloween since college.
I kinda wish that I wasn’t traveling so I could throw a party myself. I think that sounds fun! I’m all about decorations and there aren’t as many Halloween parties to battle (compared to holiday parties, anyway) so I think I could really take ownership of it. I do travel in the fall, so I think that instead YOU should throw a party next year. When you invite me, I’ll bring over one of the following treats.
Jack Skellington Cupcakes
White Chocolate Candy Corn Cookies
Scary Cake Pops
But if you invite me late to the party? Forget about it. You’re getting pumpkin poo.
