This weekend we hosted our 3rd Annual Halloween party, and it was a blast. I’m not a Halloween superfan, but we hosted the first Halloween party in the neighborhood three years ago, and since then it’s become our “thing.”
Cory and I have celebrated ten Halloweens together, but we’ve never dressed up in a couple’s costume, which I think is probably kind of weird. To make matters weirder, I normally do coordinate my costumes with my best friends. This year, Emily and I were Beauty Pageant Rejects, Miss Behavior and Miss Demeanor.
Fun fact: this is my prom dress and I was fucking thrilled that it fit this mom bod.
Hosting a party on a Friday night has its perks, but the only downside is having to all last minute stuff on a workday. Thankfully, Cory and I did a little bit decorating and cleaning every night during the week after Jack went to bed, so there wasn’t too much to get done before our friends started arriving around 8:00.
I’ve got to hand it to our friends, because everyone’s costumes were on-point, and out of the 50 people who came, there was not one duplicate!
Life, handing me lemons (and hard lemonade)
My friend/sorority sister/college roommate actually lives in the same neighborhood, and I was so pumped that she and her husband were able to make it!
It was Jack’s first night away (an entirely separate post is coming on THAT) so I had one drink the whole night. A few friends were like, WOO! A night without the baby DRINK UP! And I was like, WOO! I still have to get the baby in the morning! I never thought I’d say this, but I actually didn’t mind pumping the breaks on the alcohol. I feel like an old lady, but it felt great waking up without one trace of a hangover. Cory and I both felt so good that we swooped up Jack and spent the day in Farmville walking the High Bridge Trail before coming home to hand out candy.
It was a fantastic weekend from start to finish!
I hope you guys had a fabulous weekend!
