What do you like to do to celebrate Halloween?

I love, love, LOVE Halloween. One of my favorite holidays of the year! There are so many things I like to do to celebrate this lovely holiday. 

1) Decorate my home. Now that we bought a house I have had to buy so many more decorations. Going from an apartment to a house is a huge jump.

2) Eat candy. Umm. Duh. LOL

3) Watch scary/creepy movies. Nothing is better than warming up to a scary movie! Slashers are my favorite of the genre. 

4) Dress up! This year we had a Halloween party and for the first time, we decided to have a costume party. So fun! But yes, I love dressing up and being something I'm not. This year BF and I inadvertently dressed up as a couple. We won the couple's contest, but it was totally unplanned. LOL. I was a 18th-century lady and he was a pirate. We made up the story that he killed my hubbie and I am a widow (which explains my dress).

My friend who helped me set up (unofficial co-host) dressed as Holly from 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. She won "Sexiest Costume" and "Best Overall".

Our other friend won "Most Creative" for being a female Harry Potter (not pictured is her homemade broom)

I'm bummed I forgot to take pictures of all of the winners. The troubles of being a hostess indeed!

Here is a list of the other winners though!

*Creepiest/Scariest - "Sexy male" inmate
*Funniest - Waldo
*Most Boring - Someone who didn't dress up got this. But was wearing a "Sherlock Holmes" shirt and we dubbed her as a FanGirl. LOL

Mamyia and Ralph even dressed up! :)

Ahhh, so fun with your costume party. Yes, I think it was my first Halloween in the house when it sunk in that homeownership had a perk I hadn't thought about.

Cute pics! Looked like everyone had a good time.
