Happy Halloween from Colleen :)

I like when my name rhymes with things, so that’s why Halloween is a good holiday.  But here’s some other reasons why:

Candy.  Free candy.

My favorite Halloween candy will always be Kit Kats I think.  M&M’s and Nerds were also big favorites of mine.  I eat M&M’s on the reg, but I don’t think I’ve had Nerds in forever.  It’s not candy, but here’s a cupcake I ate (at 9am) from a co-worker:


Costumes.

There is no costume in the world that will ever be as good as my parrot costume.  I wore it multiple years and I love it and wish I had it for my children, but it is gone forever.  I am unfortunately not wearing the wings in this picture, but you can kind of see the tail – the wings were awesome and colorful like that.

Senior year of college, I was Pippy Longstocking.  My roommate Colleen, who now has her very own running blog too, did my hair really awesome like that.

I was Dora the Explorer during 5th year of college.  The night before I was Dora, I was a gymnast which was also an awesome costume but I unfortunately have no pictures of.  I wore my cousin Katie’s red, white, and blue leotard and matching scrunchy with tons of glitter in my hair.  Anyways, I bought the Dora the Explorer backpack, kept the tag on, then returned it after.  That’s how it’s done.


Being a troll with Christina was easily the best costume of my adult life (thus far).  My hair had remnants of green in it for days, no matter how hard I scrubbed, but it was worth it.  I haven’t worn the nude body suit since, but I hope to one day soon.

The annual Halloween card from the Grandparents Smith.

My freshman year of college was the first year of this card.  It has since become an annual happening.  The front says, “A Scary Thought” and on the inside, “Life Without God.” Usually they include a $1, but this year it was even better…at least for me that is.  A scratch off lotto ticket was inside and I won $10!  This year’s card also had 3 riddles to solve; do you know the answers?

What do ghosts serve for dessert?

Who won the skeleton beauty contest?

What do witches put on their hair? 

Tell Me What YOU Think!
