Throwback Thursday

In the past few months, I have seen some of my WP buddies create some blog posts like “Microblog Monday” or “This Moment” on Friday’s where one picture of your favorite moment gets broadcast on the blogosphere.  I’ve decided, to keep myself motivated to write a little more often, and also to give my friends (that would be you guys!) a little more of an idea of the type of person I am, I would create a new installment (thanks to Instagram) called “Throwback Thursday”, where I will take the time machine of my mind, back to some earlier date and time, and share with you a little bit more about what makes me me!  This week…Halloween!

Ever since I was really young, Halloween has been my favorite holiday.  Christmas, who cares! NYE, I’m going to bed!  But glorious Halloween has always been the day of the year that I look forward to the most (I’ve got a running countdown!).

ONLY 233 DAYS LEFT!

ONLY 233 DAYS LEFT!

I’ve always been a theater geek, seeing many Broadway shows, and performing in all of my school musicals (with the exception of Senior year of HS because I was failing out and my parents wouldn’t let me until I got my grades up, which never really happened!).  I LOVE being in character!  I love pretending to be someone that I’m not, and when I have a costume on, it makes for a really good time.  I NEVER break character, and by never I mean, that from the second the costume comes on until it comes off, I AM that person.  I can do accents like you wouldn’t believe.  I can mimic people and imitate celebrities.  And I can do a hella amazing impression of my mom, which she simultaneously hates and cracks up at every time!  I love to act and make people laugh, and this fantastic holiday allows me to do that.  Below are a few pictures (and brief descriptions of my behavior) of the past handful of Halloweens.

I HOBBLED WITH MY CANE EVERYWHERE, INCLUDING THE BANK WHEN I WENT TO GET MONEY AND SPOKE VERY SLOWLY CALLING EVERYONE "SONNY" AND "DEARY"

MY FACE LOOKED LIKE THIS THE WHOLE ENTIRE NIGHT, SO MUCH SO, THAT MY FACE WAS SORE FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS

POPEYE AND OLIVE OIL – MY FACE LOOKED LIKE THIS THE WHOLE ENTIRE NIGHT, SO MUCH SO, THAT IT WAS SORE FOR THE NEXT 3 DAYS

I GROANED AND WALKED LIKE A ZOMBIE FOR 5 HOURS AT THE CLUB AND PRETENDED NOT TO UNDERSTAND ANYONE THE WHOLE NIGHT (BEING SUPER DRUNK PROBABLY MADE IT MORE BELIEVABLE!)

LAST YEAR, I STOPPED AND POSED LIKE THIS CONSTANTLY, AND WHEN PEOPLE WOULD STOP AND TALK TO ME, i WOULD ONLY ADDRESS THEM ONCE I GOT IN MY STANCE

I must admit, although I love Halloween, I have yet to watch a single scary movie in it’s entirety (never watched a single Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, or Chucky film), and HATE having to go to scary attractions, even though I am usually the one that makes the plans and encourages people to go.  Anything for a good laugh!scared

  1. OMG I love how much you get in character for your Halloween costumes! That cracks me up. got any video evidence of it? I’d love to see!

    I don’t like scary movies, either, by the way. I have to sleep with my head under the covers if I even see a small clip of a scary scene! LOL

  2. One more thing, I actually watched Nightmare on Elm street the other and literally couldn’t sleep! Was so scared, that movie is no joke 😳

  3. AMAZING costumes! i love them all. I LOVE HALLOWEEN! we hosted halloween parties for 5 years in a row and our friends came up with the best costumes every year. i love when people get really into it and make amazing costumes. in my “about” page i included a few of our costumes over the years (it’s that much a part of our lives!). we did lunch lady and sloppy joe from SNL, hooter’s chicks, dog the bounty hunter and beth and “the lion that ate the hunter” hahaha. check ’em out 🙂 https://hellomynameistubeless.wordpress.com/about/

  4. Your costumes are awesome! If I had that kind of commitment and creativity, maybe I could think about being more festive. Instead, I’m the exact opposite, and could care less about halloween. I have ALWAYS taken the lazy approach. As a kid, one year I used my jazz costume and re-purposed it into a cheerleader costume. I was so cold trick-or-treating that the next year I put on my winter jacket and pants and went as a skier. And one year I went as a black cat, dressed in black and used my mom’s eye liner to give myself whiskers. Once I reached the age where no-one could force me to participate I basically have not. Last year Mr. MPB accused me of being the Halloween Grinch because I didn’t want to actually hand out candy, but just put it in a bucket by the front door.

  5. Your costumes are awesome! I love the ones where you and Callie do something together! I also love Halloween, and have my own countdown of sorts going, as our little Dumplin’s due date is October 30th. Could you imagine, if baby comes a day late, the labour screams will fit right in with the Halloween theme!

    • Oh my gosh! I didn’t realize your due date is 10/30! A little Halloween baby! 10/30 is a fantastic day–that’s when we had our embryo transfer. 🙂

      • Thanks Molly! Yeah, it’s pretty awesome! Who knows when the little Dumplin’ will come, but I love the festive atmosphere around Halloween!

  6. Love this! You would LOVE working for my company. In our office, Halloween is mandatory. Everyone dresses up and then the office closes early and we all go for lunch & margaritas on the company. (And we are not a small office–there are almost 100 of us!) I’m going on 15 years worth of office Halloween costumes, now! Unfortunately, the “mandatory” angle has sort of ruined the fun for me and now I’m sick of it!

  7. This is totally amazing.
    I am not a halloween person because I have a terrible fear of not being able to identify people (even sunglasses stress me out). That being said I can totally appreciate those costumes. You’re awesome!

  8. You’re awesome! These costumes are amazing! I’m glad you’re doing some throwback pics, maybe it’ll be a nice break for you every week. I’m so impressed with your character abilities…
