Halloween Blog Hop Starts Friday! And Some Cool Pics!

Click HERE to start the hop!

Hey everybody! I am going to be in another bog hop this week! This time it’s all about my favorite day of the year.. Halloween! I’ll be sharing some of my crafts, some photos, and probably a funny story or two… you know me, I love to tell a good story! And it seems that you guys like hearin’ ‘em so a HUGE “Thank you!” to all of you!!!

So you need to make sure you stop back here for the Halloween Hop, starting on Friday! I will of course have a list of all the stops. Yes, there will be some candy too! It couldn’t be Halloween without candy right?!?!?!

So, to help us get in to the “spirit” of things (yeah… like I need help with that!) Here is a brief walk down my memory lane… Enjoy!

Thing 1 and Thing 2. Ain’t that the truth! This is of course Gene and myself during my Fam’s Halloween Party. It happened to fall on our One Year Anniversary (which coincidentally, is tomorrow!). The Fam surprised us with this lovely cake! How ridiculously cute are we?!?!

Here I am iHalloween 2005 004n my “October Outfit.” I made this skirt several years ago…obviously, and I just love it. And it seems that I often have blue hair in October… strange, no? Actually, I like to do the opposite of what’s expected. Most would think that I’d do orange (which I have never actually done!)… so I like to go opposite. Check out your color wheels Peeps!

IMG_1715And this is last year. I am a very pregnant gypsy here. Phoenix is saying “Boo!” to the camera. He is a wizard. Gene is in his oh-so-handsome wedding ensemble. And yes, that is my beautiful PT Cruiser in the background. You may all stop to admire it’s fabulousness!!! C’mon! Zoom in to see the flames!!!

So that’s a little peek in to my Halloweens. I have so awesome pics to share with you during the hop. You’ll love ‘em!
