Halloween Shenanigans

Halloween is a fun time of year - there's creative costumes, candy, treats, and a indicator that the holiday season is fast approaching. Halloween then Thanksgiving then Christmas - ba da bing ba da boom. I like to reminisce about all the costumes I've ever worn. I remember being so excited to go trick or treat and have hoards of candy for days. I've been Cleopatra, a power ranger, a pumpkin, a valley girl, and a zombie athlete. Then there's that middle period between middle school and high school when you are too old to dress up but too young to upgrade to the adult scandelicious version of Halloween. Once college hit, I had a whole new meaning of Halloween fun.

This year, my Halloween has been a fusion of my nostalgic childhood and the adult fun I've been having for the past 5 years. At work, we put on a Halloween party for the kids. I suggested the theme of Super Mario Bros... who doesn't love mushroom kingdom and all those loveable Super Mario Characters? It was sweet seeing all the excitement in their little faces as they came into our room, played games, and left with candy, cake, and cookies galore. The day after the Super Mario Bros Halloween party, I flew back to Houston to celebrate my adorable cousin's 2nd birthday. I was a normal 23-year-old by day and then I was the white swan by night.

My coworker told me that I scared her son. He was confused as to why a girl had facial hair. I rocked my mustache, kid.

My friends and I hit up Washington street. We were first debating whether or not to go to Bayou live but heard that they were expecting 7,000 people. No wayyyy. Good thing we went to Washington street, there was no cover and it was poppin'. Too much fun. Time to sleep it off.
