My 2 favorite holidays are Halloween & Christmas. I love Halloween because for one day out of the year, I get to be something I’m not. The year that Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows book came out, I was Harry Potter. Pulled it off too. I’m only 5′ 1″ so when I used to trick-or-treat with my kids, I was literally going up and getting my own candy. I went through the trouble of putting together my own costume plus 3 kids, I was going to get something for it. Unfortunately, I can’t find the photos from the year I was Harry Potter. All the photos below were costumes that I wore to work the past 5 years.
2014 – Grumpy Killer Granny
2015 – Oompa Loompa from the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
2016 – Groovy Hippie from the 60’s – The jeans were my hubby’s jeans that he once wore back in the day. He’s 10 years older than me.
2017 – Hula Hoop Girl from the 50’s – Photographed with my friend Amber. Neither of us knew we were dressing from the same decade. Note: My hula hoops in the background!
2018 – Deadly Bride – Groom slit my throat, drove a nail into my ring finger & left me at the altar.
I won best overall at work last year for this one.
2019 – You will have to wait until Friday to see what I become this Halloween! I have co-workers who follow my blog & it’s a secret.
