A real post, for all you haters.

I'm sorry that I was MIA last week - I know everyone missed me, you can admit it.  Work was busy. Life was busy. But I was rewarded with a weekend away. I visited Sam, caught up on her life (okay, okay, like we don't text 24/7) and got good and day drunk on Saturday. Overall, it was a success.

This weekend I will be having a Halloween party at my house. I almost forgot about it - and that's extremely unlike me. I won't be revealing what my costume is until Saturday, but I will talk about previous costumes.

Am I the only girl who refuses to wear a slutty, store bought costume?  I might be. I think half the fun of dressing up is collecting items. If I just went to Halloween Hall and bought something, what's the fun in that?

Oh wait, wait, wait, wait...now I remember why store bought costumes can be fun.

Because while I was trying to piece together a Willy Wonka costume, Sam went and bought herself an Oompa Loompa costume and let Lindy D take a picture of us while she was in it. I'm 99% sure she's going to kill me for posting this, but cmon...it's amazing, isn't it?

The following year I dressed up as Hermione Granger. Twice. The first time was at a party the weekend before Halloween. The only people who knew who I was were the ones who had kids. Everyone else thought I was a slutty school girl. Lame.

But, I got to dress up again on Halloween and everyone knew who I was because a) I worked at a daycare and b) I happened to work with a guy who looked like Mr. Potter himself.

2008 was the last year I dressed up. Me, Mills, and our friend Mary were the Girls Next Door aka Holly, Bridget, and Kendra.

I also rocked hair extensions that didn't really blend. I also, also realize this is not the best picture of our outfits, but you get the idea.

I can't believe it's been 4 years since I dressed up, but I'm pretty excited about my costume this year. I even found a way to work my semi-lazy drunk eye into it. Just you wait and see.

Are you dressing up? As a slutty cop? I hate you.
