Happy Halloween Party Recap πŸŽƒ

Happy Halloween, ghouls & goblins!!Β 
(Can we pause & freak out about the fact that it’s the END of October?)

In celebration of Halloween I’m sharing details from our annual party! It was pretty low key. We had about 25 guests and some yummy snack foods and drinks.

Our party didn’t have a theme this year so we saw lots of fun costumes!

The Bandit & Frog
The littlest SCUBA diver, her momma jellyfish, & daddy shark
HONDA employee (my dad impersonating my brother) & Ratatouille chef
My devilish sister-in-law and Stewart fromΒ Letterkenny
A whole bunch of characters

K and I decided we were going to be G.D. Americans- a spoof on the aggressive, harsh, unrelenting “American.” Truth be told… I didn’t have to buy a single part of my outfit. Mainly because I DO wear these clothes to concerts and stuff. LOL

Any time someone tried to talk politics or tell me something America-related I got in their face and asked if they thought they were a better American than me. Honestly, we probably could’ve topped it off with a certain red hat and confederate flag bandanas, but we couldn’t bring ourselves to spend money on that stuff.

I tried to determine if this costume was offensive before we chose it. We didn’t target a demographic & we are Americans poking fun at the extreme “Americans.” So we went with it. And if we’d have offended any right-wingers I was fully prepared to call them a snowflake 😏

On to the food…

Our last few guests trickled out (or went up to bed) around 1:30am, then K and I c.r.a.s.h.e.d. (And then Bristol had a lovely spell of diarrhea in our room around 4:45am SIGH.)

I say it every year, but the day after our Halloween party is one of my favorite days of the year. We lay around and don’t leave the house and watch NASCAR and relax. At times I wonder if I put myself through the party just to earn the day after.

We had trick-or-treaters Tuesday night & we’ve got another party on Saturday, then our Spooky Season is officially over. What fun things did you do this year?

  1. Trust me, I’m waaaay ahead of you on the freaking out.

    I love the M&Ms costumes! If I ever get invited to a Halloween party again I need to persuade Jan to do that with me.
    Your “American” costumes are great too. Years ago I went to an international party where we were asked to dress as our nationality. You guys would have fit in perfectly there!

      Their M&M costumes were so cute! That’s my mother-in-law, aunt-in-law, and a close family friend πŸ™‚ Jan should totally do it! It’d be simple for you two!
      Oh man… I can only imagine our costumes at a party like that. It’d be perfect! Haha!

      Hahahaha- thank you! Yeah. We were both like, “That’d top this outfit off…. but we are NOT spending the $4.99 (or whatever it is) to make it happen.” My mom’s Ratatouille costume was so cute!!

    Hahahaha I LOVE your costume, and PLEASE DEAR LORD are confederate flags right-wing? Because I used to think I was a right-winger but if that’s the case then apparently I am notttttt. I love how you casually hosted 25 people and you’re about to have a baby! You are a superhero!

      Hahaha. Thank you.
      No, no. Confederate flags aren’t right wing… I think they’re just ignorant (unless you’re studying the Civil War) and usually the people who argue in the case of them as a contemporary symbol tend to lean right. But everyone who leans right does NOT feel that way. Lol. My dad is Republican and loved our costumes. He doesn’t have anything confederate flag memorabilia that I am away of. Lol.

      K kept telling me to cancel if I was feeling overwhelmed. I just love Halloween so much, though!
