A Prego Halloween

 I'll be the first to admit, Halloween is never my favorite holiday.
Sure it's fun to dress up and all...
but I always have a hard time deciding what to wear.
This year we kept it soooo simple and cheap.
Our costumes didn't cost us a single penny!!
I'm sorry if our choices offend you,
they were all in good fun and not meant to cause any harm.
We decided Joe would be a priest:
 If you actually know my husband,
this is quite hysterical.
As for me?
Of course, a pregnant nun.
My Costume consisted of: 
Black yoga pants
White Maternity T-shirt
Black Cardigan
I cut an old black short sleeve cardi that hung long 
& funny & put that on my head.
I cut the sleeve off an old white t-shirt for my headband.
Of course I needed to wear some jewels,
because, well, I'm me.
Joe's just wearing a black button down shirt & black pants.
I cut a piece of white cardboard and used a safety pin to secure it.
I think the costumes came out alright!
Most importantly,
I was sooooo comfy.
We tried to put miss Holly in a costume...
 Or as Joe called her,
Mother Consuela
But she wasn't very happy!
We went to my sister's party...
She loves Halloween as much as I love Christmas I think.
 Candy Corn Jello Shots!
 Yummy Festive cupcakes!
 Mummy weenies!
 I loved this!!
 I thought she did a great job with all the festive food/decor!

 My sis was complaining all night she had to be a princess..
Her husband wanted to be Robin Hood
So she got stuck as Maid Marian.
I thought she looked great!
 Notice the fog from the fog machine...
We had an Obama
and my step-brother was a middle finger!
 And of course, and 80's girl.

My husband got to enjoy some champagne...
and I was DD.
It was nice to get out off the couch on a Saturday night!
I will admit I'm far more excited for next Halloween,
when I can dress my little girl up!!
Did any of you dress up and go out?!
 I'm hurrying off to the mall before Frankenstorm really hits.
I'm not sure how much wind damage we will get,
but I hope it's nothing too bad.
I hope all of you stay safe!
