Halloween Memories #TBT

Halloween. As a child it could probably be considered Christmas. You get to make a trip to the store to pick out your altar ego, off the wall, totally cool costume and probably attend at least 2 activities where you get a huge bag full of candy. Who doesn't like Halloween?

I remember my favorite Halloween. I was in first grade and I won the costume contest at my elementary school. When going through pictures I sadly could not find any of this particular costume...but it. was. AWESOME. 

My mom was always so creative and crafty. So creative, she made me a present. No, she didn't give me anything for Halloween. She literally made me in to a present as my costume. I wore a giant box that she wrapped up in cute paper. I remember it was bright yellow with fun colorful polka dots. I wore a headband with a big bow that looks great on top of a present. She put a bunch of blush on me and made  my cheeks  nice and rosy and fun. I wore bright tights and shoes too. This box was awesome and I don't remember if I was able to sit down with it on...haha, but I LOVED that costume.

Think this...

Throughout the years my brother and I had some pretty cool costumes. 


Crayon and a (confused) cowboy?! That was a fun year. Too bad orange was never my favorite color.


A baby doll and a homemade ninja turtle. I told you my mom was crafty. Who needs Target or Party City!?


This was when I went to party with my brother his senior year of college. We were (Original) Gangsters. Mom would be proud.

Last, but certainly not least. A recent favorite from a few years ago.


Chuck & I had to come up with a costume sort of last minute for a work function I had to attend two years ago. We opted to keep it classy and be some cast members of Jersey Shore.
CABS ARE HERE!

What was your favorite Halloween costume?! I bet you were booootiful whatever it was!
