October (S)miles

How is it November already?!?

I love October. I know many do and yep, I one of ’em. The month is dear to me because like I mentioned in my previous post, it’s when I got married ❤ but I also love it because it holds my favorite holiday 😀

In high school, both when I attended and worked in it, I *lived* for spirt week. I absolutely love any occasion to dress up or use a costume. I think it’s largely due to my reading obsession where I really become attached to characters. It’s fun to become one every now and then! #nerdalert

When I had my first born, I was so excited to have a living breathing doll to dress. You better believe I took any opportunity to dress her up and when her first Halloween came, I was ready.

2012

I think I secretly hoped we’d continue a family theme, and when each year after that everyone was always on board with it I was the happiest mama on the block ❤

2013–Superheroes

My daughter wanted to be Minnie Mouse in 2014 so we worked around her 😀

2014–Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy

The following year, my daughter wanted to be a witch, lol!

2015–Devils and Witches

It was our son’s turn in 2016 and he wanted to be a pumpkin ❤

2016–Classic Halloween (Ghost, Black Cat, Witch, Pumpkin)

Both kids are digging the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so this year was easy peasy!

2017–TMNT Heroes in a Half Shell #turtlepower

Oh man, I never thought it’d be so fun!!! I love my family ❤

October Miles: 98 (nope, didn’t care to hit the hundred, lol!)

–Did your family do theme costumes growing up?

–Do you love dressing up? What has been your favorite/most memorable costume?

Happy Halloween!!

It’s Halloween stateside and like so many others, I’m one who considers this day the best, most fun holiday! 🙂

First and foremost, THANK YOU for all of you kind words on my marathon and marathon recap. I continue to be surprised and really, moved, by the outpouring support of the running community. You guys are awesome!

Okay, so I still have  a lot to say and share with you from my amazing marathon weekend last week but today I’m in full candy concentration mode. So, I’ll leave you with costume #1 of the holiday weekend
