Halloween is officially TWO WEEKS AWAY!
In case you didn’t know, I am a big Halloween fan! I am super excited and hoping for some great Halloween decorated houses and fun, creative costumes this year!
I don’t always get to do anything super fun or exciting for Halloween. In past years my boyfriend and I usually don’t have any big plans for Halloween. We’ve stayed indoors some years, gone to a party another, last year was the best though! We threw on some costumes his mom was saving away in the garage and headed out to trick or treat! I was a pumpkin! He was a ghoul. Not the best costumes but we were greeted at every door with candy nonetheless. I was super happy no one gave us any problems for being older and not walking around with a child. It might not seem like something very exciting for a 21 year old to be doing on a Holiday that people like to dress up all flirty and be at bumping parties! Yet, being outdoors at night with my bag filling with candy was AWESOME to me! We actually found a pretty lively neighborhood that brought me back to my days as a kid. Even the unexpected rain did not stop me from walking house to house enjoying the decorations and costumes of others. I was happy.
This year my boyfriend’s little cousin wants her parents to throw her a Halloween party versus a birthday party. Even though its a kids party you might have guessed by now that yes! I am excited for this too! They always have such fun parties filled with games, great food, desserts, and adorable decorations! Growing up I really only had one birthday party the rest of my birthdays were mostly just cake and Happy Birthdays. Not this family though! They have birthday parties for each child every year, and its always a big themed event! So the fact that this year they are doing a Halloween party has me excited. Plus, we are even going around the neighborhood together for some trick or treating!
Another reason I am pretty excited is because my boyfriend even suggested we dress up together, as something scary! I’m a little worried about scaring the kids, but I’ve always wanted to dress up like something creepy! He already ordered part of our costume (to be revealed at a later date!) It isn’t anything TOO creative, but I never pre-plan costumes really so this is something exciting to me!
In honor of the coming of Halloween I know many television channels like to host Halloween movie marathons. Which I love! Unfortunately making a specific time for a specific movie isn’t always the most ideal situation. So instead, I decided to have my own Halloween Marathon in the coming days! I plan on requesting some movies from the library if they aren’t already on Netflix. I would LOVE some suggestions from you all!
Share what movies have really put the fear in you in the past, or are raved about as excellent horror/thriller films!
