My boss told me today that on Halloween, I was not to schedule any appointments because local children will be coming into the office for trick-or-treating. I was so excited! I haven’t ever had any trick-or-treaters since “growing up” and I am so excited to be the adult in that situation. However, I do miss doing that myself…
When you hit a certain age, you stop going trick-or-treating. In this day and age, however, we don’t seem to stop dressing up and going to parties. At least, not if you’re not a parent and still in your 20’s.
Below are examples of my Halloween costumes over the years:
Long story short, my costumes haven’t always been the most conservative. But that’s not the point.
Mr. S and I have plans to go to at least one party (that we assume some college friends are having…) But this weekend is different. This weekend, we are hosting a slightly-adult, slightly-childish scary movie marathon. We’re having friends over to drink Halloween themed alcoholic punch. But we’ll all be wearing costumes and we’ll be watching scary movies.
We are attempting to balance Halloween so we have fun as adults, with drinking, but also enjoy the thing about Halloween that made us love it so much when we were little: costumes and being scared.
After that, on Sunday, we’ll be going to a pumpkin patch with Marci and her partner, David. The plan is to be as childish as we want. And then Mr. S. and I plan on carving up our pumpkins and putting them outside. But that’s another post to follow. Stay tuned!
