happy happy halloween! wow what a weekend! the past two days have been jam-packed full of halloween celebrations and quality time spent with quality friends... and one really cute fireman, of course. anyway, i managed to make a pretty fun costume that was extra fun to wear! i was.................. The Black Swan!!! remember this post? well, i wasn't the Mad Hatter after all. i just couldn't help myself from wearing a HUGE fabulous tutu and prancing around like a possessed ballerina! in fact, i layered THREE tutu's and made the third one really last minute... which i am so happy i did! the third tutu really gave my costume the va-va-voom it needed! i also loved the black opalescent feathers that i hot-glued to the bustier for a dark eerie swan effect. you should have seen my ballet moves! now those were kinda scary(!!) the actual highlight of my weekend was (definitely) spending time {and carving pumpkins} with a wonderful girlfriend, her hubby, and their darling little guy (Jameson!). see our pumpkin carving day way below... (!!!)

**did anyone dress up this weekend?? what about carve a pumpkin???

B L A C K   S W A N. 
{what do you think??? can you tell i'm wearing THREE tutu's? what about the dark hair?!}
{just the eye makeup took me an hour to apply! it was a really fun costume to wear!}

{i mean, come on. look at that baby! everyone, meet Jameson. he's my fantastic friend (Meagan's) son!}
{i'm a very proud auntie.}
{when carving pumpkins... you've GOT to have some good grub. this was the perfect salty/sweet combo}
{oh, and you should have a yummy cocktail too! this was champagne with a splash of blueberry juice. yumyum!}
{Jameson loved how the pumpkin-goo felt in between his fingers. it was really cute.}
{yep, she's wearing a hat.}
{our pumpkins really turned out to be one big happy family. to bad the fireman missed out... he's the best pumpkin carver of all!}

 little side note: we actually jammed packed our day SO much that i will have to post a part two and show you our colorful art project that we {Miss. Meagan} and i had a blast making! stay tuned!

well........ what was everyone for Halloween!? OR what are you dressing up as tonight?
