Halloween Party Surprises

Snow or no snow, Jay and I decided yesterday afternoon that there was just no way that we were going to miss out on last night’s Halloween party! As it turns out, the snow wasn’t nearly as bad as they were predicting (surprise, surprise), so I’m SO glad we made the trip up.

As for our Halloween costumes? I gave you all a little hint early last week…but here ya have it!


The buff gym guy and his trainer…original, I know.

Well, in case you’ve never seen the Planet Fitness commercial, you may not totally get it, but Jay is his own version of that guy. I couldn’t quite convince him to wear the daisy duke-like shorts, but I thought this was just as fun.

The swimmies that I showed you all before were actually going to be his “muscles,” but that didn’t quite work out as we had hoped. Luckily, Jay ended up finding a puffy muscle shirt that worked even better is just that buff.


When it comes to Halloween costumes, I have one priority and that is comfort. No sexy, skimpy little numbers for me.

Costumes from last year AND the year before (yup, we recycled!)


2008 / 2007


So anyways, last night’s party was a blast as always, and even involved a super exciting surprise (I’ll get to that in a second). I seriously just love being around this crew of girls!


Joelle and Kyle were once again excellent hosts and put on a great party with plenty of good food to eat.


There was definitely plenty of snacking going on!


Some other fun costumes for the night…

Does anyone else remember watching Legends of the Hidden Temple? Steve and Eileen went as the Blue Barracudas!


And it wasn’t only the adults who were dressed up last night…Joelle’s pug, Forrest, even got festive for the occasion.


Too cute, right?


Another fun costume duo was Kathryn and Paul, but there was a lot more fun going on than just their costumes…


They’re ENGAGED! Open-mouthed smile


Paul popped the question last night literally right before they got to the party and we were sooo excited to be able to find out the news in person (Joelle, Rachel, and myself have all had to make the phone calls). We are all so happy for those two. Congrats again, Paul & Kathy!

On another totally different note, this happened last night…


…and baby fever hit me immediately.

My man sure does look good holding the little ones, doesn’t he?

Oh boy. Winking smile

Question for the Morning:

What did you/are you dressing up as for Halloween this year?

    Oh. My. Goodness. I LOVED Legends of the Hidden Temple! That was a genius costume!! Too funny. I also loved your Average Joes costume – that’s something I could convince my hubby to do :)

    I was a 1920s Flapper girl, it was probably my most favorite costume!
    Adorable baby, we had a very cute little dragon at the party we went to last night and yes baby fever is a mutual feeling here :)

    I like your costumes! The Legends of the Hidden Temple idea was a good one too! I agree with you..I have to be comfy. I might dress up tomorrow for a work thing, but I have no idea what I’ll be yet. It looks like I might not be anything, unless I can pull something together quickly!

    We decided to veto Halloween this year…it’s been a crazy busy month and we didn’t have any energy to attend parties this weekend. Was going to dress up at work and be Rachel from Glee (since just about every day someone tells me I look like her) but no one else was dressing up! I didn’t want to be the sore thumb so no dressing up this year, which is kind of weird!

    Still participating in scary movies and candy though :)
