Not Your Average All Hallow's Eve!

Welcome to one of the best Halloweens ever!
I went to work and found Birthday notes, co-workers that came into work on their day off to make my life easier, and a relaxed atmosphere that we have been missing lately.


Can you believe I wore all pink? Me neither.



I'm going to go ahead and make the claim that our costumes were THE best. I realized after the fact that I mostly forgot to wear my pig nose, but EVERYONE guessed that I was a Piggy Bank and that made my day. Especially since my piggy bank brought me an extra $150. Whoop whoop. My plan totally worked, because yes, money was the mission.

Then, right as I was about to leave for the day, this arrangeent showed up! Will may not have been allowed to call, but he made sure to get me a message. I had made him promise that he would stop sending me flowers because the price these days is ridic for something that dies, but I guess I can't hold him to it in this instance ;)


At this point, I didn't know who was going out, I didn't know where we were going to dinner, I didn't know how we were getting downtown, and we didn't even have tickets to get into downtown! As a planner, I would have normally been wiggin' out, but somehow I knew it would all workout.

Even though I didn't plan on drinking, we left nothing to chance, and my friend Anthony drove Buck and I to Jack Quinn's to carb load for the evening. We had Boxty's, I played a mean cowbell in the band, and my balloon man friend hooked it up!

From there, I got a call from my regular Tony, and we were escorted into the clubs. Yep, no tickets, no dinero. I can't believe that I NEVER go downtown here, and I can still manage to get in. It's not what you know, it's who you know.





I'm not gonna lie, I saw some of the best costumes this Halloween! I was happier with my costume(s) than I have ever been, and I was SO happy to be completely covered. I was mostly warm, and feel like I cut down on the unwanted attention from wearing the "usual" costumes I saw down there.


I took these for Will, because he loves Wilfred, and I just can't say no to pictures of American flags.


And I just couldn't get over these:
1 | RonMcDon is getting it.
2 | ZigZag is so creative! The beard totally makes it.
3 | Can you tell which head is real?
I don't even like clowns, but that was the BEST EVER.





Like I said, it was the first Birthday without any drama, and the ONLY thing that could have made it better was if Will was home. Thank you to all of my friends that made it special {I'm not gonna lie, I didn't realize that I had acquired so many good friends here}, and thank all of YOU for the birthday comments, emails, texts, and calls! Everyone made me feel extremely blessed <3

The piggy bank costume is such a neat idea, especially since you actually made bank! And I'm loving the other costume too! We didn't go to our usual Halloween Party so I didn't put much into a costume, I literally just raided my Mother's drawer of crap she wears to conventions each year and did what I could. I guess it didn't matter because we were trick or treating with my friend's kids.

You had two adorable costumes and I didn't even wear one! You did it up big and it looks like you had a ton of fun doing it. Way to keep yourself distracted and engaged even though will had to miss it.
