Halloween FEVER

SO, I'm going to extend my giveaway ONE more week. Not sure what I'm gonna do if it keeps going this way, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. The people over at My Memories entrusted me with this duty and I'm totally failing :-/ my ego is a bit bruised lol
Help me out here!

Okay, I am getting Halloween FEVER! It's absolutely without question my favorite holiday.
I don't know what I want to be yet, but I have a few ideas. I also agree with, but don't necessarily follow the "Mean Girls Halloween Rule" (the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything)
My current thoughts on a costume are:
An Indian
A Sheriff
Marceline from Adventure Time
One of the people from the background of the Ball Scene from Labyrinth

Could be one of those. Could be none.

Here are some photos from Halloween last year

My husband is partial to being a zombie

I was Baron Samedi

The little giraffe on a hay ride

She was missing some spots

Can you believe the Halloween store had the tail and ears of a giraffe, but not a costume?
So we made one.

With my dad.

The year before last we were all zombies, she had fun being scary :-p

Let's catch up:
  • Since I last posted, with the exception of yesterday's filler post, I got a hair cut, went shopping and got lots of goodies, been stressed and looking for a new job and have also been very happy with life. I know those last two contradict each other, but life has been happy outside of work and that overshadows most of the stress. Or should I say overshines?
  • I finally got to try that new mysterious makeup and I LOVE it! The eyeshadow is really pigmented but easily blendable and silky with just the right amount of shimmer. I LOOOVE the lipgloss the best, it's so smooth and not the least bit sticky and lasts for hours! I'm convinced I got a good deal.
  • I'm starting to get over one of my biggest self conscious deals: being sleeveless.
  • I had a job interview yesterday and I was humiliated. I'm always nervous doing things like that. So I sweat. And the dress I was wearing showed it SO BAD, even magnified it.
  • I learned some photo taking tips and tricks from Sweet Verbena that I'll definitely being using for your viewing pleasure.
  • HEY! I decided that when I get to 10 followers I'm going to do a giveaway of crafts by ME!

  5. Oh, Chelsei, I'm sorry the interview was so sweaty. But it doesn't mean you didn't get the job - interviewers expect you to be nervous.

    And I love the Halloween pics from last year - your guys' costumes were fabulous. I was Frida Kahlo and no one knew who she was. It was so sad!

  6. i LOVE halloween too! yay october!

    <3 steffy

  7. My vote is for an Indian! And your little girl in her giraffe costume is SO CUTE.

    Sorry about your interview! I'm always terribly nervous as well, although I haven't gotten any interviews lately (still unemployed booo).

    Take care! :)

  8. Thanks about the interview guys! I didn't get a call back, but that's okay I didn't really have my heart set on that job anyway.

  9. I love dressing up for Halloween. You look awesome as a zombie! Following you, hope you can stop by soon :)
