Halloween is upon us, and every year (with the exception of last year, since I was very pregnant) we have a Halloween party. We invite a bunch of friends over and get dressed up. There’s food and drink and music, and we always have a good time.

One thing that I especially enjoy about Halloween is the opportunity to dress up. Putting on a costume can be a fun way to express a side of myself that I might not otherwise feel comfortable expressing. For example, to nourish my strong and slightly less good side this year, I’m dressing up as a mafia girl. Sounds silly, but it’s going to be a blast.

In years past, I’ve worn a belly dancer costume, a genie costume, and even a witch costume. The bottom line here folks is this. As adults, we often forget to have FUN. Take the opportunity this Halloween (or today, if you like) to do something silly and meaningless. In fact, try to do something silly every day. Anything that brings joy to our lives is a good thing. Bring yourself a little joy today!

So, dear readers, do tell. Are you dressing up for Halloween this year? What are you going to be?

  1. I don’t have a Halloween costume unfortunately, but now you’re making me wish I did! 🙂 I usually wear this orange t-shirt I have with a black bat on it, however this year to add to my meager ensemble I bought big skeleton earrings that jiggle.
    Ok, yes, I’m lame. 😛

  2. We want to see pictures of you in your costume, Mafia girl!! LOL

    Hugo’s aunt has a Halloween party every year where costumes are required. We didn’t make it this year because we were out of town, but we had planned to dress up as Dr. Hugo and Nurse Roxanne. LOL We always like dressing up with a theme…Last year, we were The Flinstones.

    What about your Hubby and the kids?? Who will they be for Halloween??

    Many Blessings….Roxanne and Hugo

  3. Sounds like you have a fun night ahead. Hope you have a great time. I’m not dressing up this year. I’m being lame. LOL!! My little girl is going to be bat girl. Does that count?

  4. I obviously dressed up as a kid. Then not again until College for the Halloween parties there. A few times after when I was still single. But now I’m a married dud. I take the kids, but I don’t dress up.

  5. Where is your EC Card here.

  6. I completely agree… it is the perfect excuse to dress up and have fun! I don’t have a costume yet but I’m working on it 🙂
