Where's the PAUSE button?!

Oh it's October 1st?!  Amazing how fast September came and went.. I feel like we have been in fast forward super speed! Where's the pause button!?

October brings in fall colors, cool weather, and my favorite holiday ever. Halloween! Every year I dress up and either host a party or find one to go to!  This year since Tim and I will be in transition of our east coast to west coast move, the annual hosted party will not be happening BUT that does not mean we will not be joining in some kind of festivities!

I usually start my Halloween planning early... like June! I start thinking about what I will wear and how to make it, but since we have been so busy and in super speed, I haven't given it much thought... for-shame.  What does save me a little is that  I have a board specifically for all the creepy ideas I have in mind.

That being said, I am not sure if this year I will be making anything extravagant, I have yet to decide if I am going to find some kind of easy DIY project or just go out to the local Halloween store and buy something.....I don't normally like to just go buy something straight off the shelf and wear it. It usually has to be tweaked and altered if I do buy a pre-made costume.  One easy diy costume I have been debating on is the voodoo doll... hrmmm decisions decisions. Maybe I should figure out what is going on for parties first before making up my mind on what to wear?!

Last years is one of my favorite costumes!
