Tricks OR Treats

 Boo 2 U!!!! I know NOT everyone celebrate Halloween or participate in the festivities and I highly RESPECT that but I must admit I have had my fair share in celebrating… as far as dressing up, throwing parties, and eating the CANDY!!!! Yesss… the candy is by far my FAVORITE part of this creepy holiday! The only thing I don’t do is: Haunted Houses!!!!

Speaking of Haunted Houses… I took my oldest daughter & her friend to Netherworld last week & they were surprised that I stayed in the car and waited for them. 1st off it was $28 admission – which is straight CRAZY if you ask me… I REFUSE to pay folks to scare me!!!! I just can’t see me playing them kind of games… I will FIGHT A MONSTER, GHOST, VAMPIRE, and/or WITCH that jump out at me so let’s just say it was safe for me NOT to go in the Haunted House!!!!

*** WARNING: Picture Heavy***

While on a hunt for my Halloween costume for this year... I ran across some cool Halloween Accessories. Check out this frightful collection:

  1. I went to Halloween Horror nights this past weekend at Universal Studios in Orlando. I had soooo much fun, I loved getting the be-jesus scared out of me. My abs were so sore from laughing the next day.

    Last years costumes looked great, I won't be dressing up this year. I will be at the house watching scary movies all night.
