It started a long time ago. I was very young when I realized that Halloween was my favorite holiday. My grandma has decorated our house from top to bottom every year with Halloween decorations! She even used to throw a big Halloween party for all the kids. Maybe its because I’m a true performer
at heart or maybe it’s because I inherited it from my mother, but there is almost nothing I get more excited for than the month of October….I mean cmon, not only do I get Halloween but I also get hockey
! It truly is my happy place.
Halloween Lovers Anonymous
Hello, my name is Elaina and I am an addict. I bought Halloween decorations in the middle of July…and I intend on putting these decorations up in mid-September….I have made 3 consecutive voyages to Michaels
in order to buy decorations, using coupons of course! I could only get one thing at a time to get the best deals. And while some people think that is crazy, I always look for the best deal! I keep telling Clayton that I can’t wait to make our apartment super spooky! That’s my new favorite word; Spooky! It’s just fun lol. He just laughs at me when I say it!
Let’s Get Spooky
For me there is just something about completely decorating our place in Halloween decorations, sipping hot chocolate and watching scary movies! I live for it every year. Scary movies are not Clayton’s favorite
, but I’ve told him this year, he doesn’t have a choice! There are so many great movies coming out and I have to see them! One thing he will watch with me is Stranger Things. We will more than likely binge the entire thing in a few days! Also, I’ve never missed an episode of Walking Dead…so pretty pumped for that to come back too!
Halloween Vs Hockey
There will have to be a balance between all the spooky stuff I want to watch and all the hockey games that will be on. It’s always a tough choice for me when the 2 overlap. Clayton will always pick hockey and I really have to reason with myself on which I’d rather watch…I know, sometimes I’m an awful hockey fan
! Lol But trust me, it really does hurt me to have to decide!
Anyone that knows me, knows that I plan my Halloween costumes almost a year in advance. My favorite Halloween costume to date is when I went as Little Red Riding Hood! I got everything I needed for it at Goodwill and it turned out great!
I’ve been thinking about this year’s costume for longer than a year. Full disclosure, I stole this idea from a high school friend. So it’s not completely an original idea, but it’s definitely something that I don’t see often. Last year Clayton and I went as Lolla and Bugs Bunny from Space Jam! I couldn’t get him in any bunny ears, but this year he has agreed to be a better sport about dressing up! I think he likes dressing up for Halloween with me more than he admits! I usually get lots and lots of Halloween talk done with Clayton’s mom. She and her husband, James, go all out for Halloween and have a great time! She also loves Halloween as much as I do too!
So what’s your favorite holiday? How do you feel about Halloween? What was your favorite Halloween costume?
