October!

Today is all around awesome because it is the 1st day of October. Which is the best month of the year. 13 years ago in October I started to date Frank. We first started talking in October and had our first date October 24th, 1998. It was our Homecoming dance our senior year of high school. Our 2nd date being Fright Fest the very next day.

11 years later we were married on Halloween.

This time of year has always been my favorite since I was a little girl and sharing so many wonderful milestones with my husband this time of year has made it that much more special. I can’t believe we will be together 13 years and married 2 this year. Lucky 13!!! Ha Ha! It makes my heart smile. 
On top of of all of this.. October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With my Mom passing away from the disease it is also a time for me to not mourn about losing her but doing something to help raise awareness or support the cause. 
My beautiful Mom, Lynne
And with perfect timing my friends in Expired Empire are planning a benefit show. I will be donating a the PINK Dead Girl Webbed Decay barrette/pin as a prize.
Since it is Halloween weekend me and my husband will not be at the event because we will be out of town celebrating our anniversary but I am honored to do something to help make the event a success and raise money for the cause.
Happy October!

In my kitchen this morning before heading
off to work 🙂 he he

Well with Halloween this weekend.. we had the option of dressing up at the office today. Money being tight I decided to pull my costume out from last year from when I dressed as Lydia Deetz (despite the wig it’s also really comfy) . Last year I didn’t dress up at work cause I had wedding on the brain.. I only wore it for a party so my co-workers have never seen it. I didn’t enter the costume contest at work although I wish I had… cause the person who came in 3rd was dressed as Beetlejuice ha ha. But everyone at work loved it and it got me even more in the Halloween spirit for this weekend!!

Unfortunately my Count Pumpkin took 2nd place in the pumpkin decorating contest. I was grateful to take 2nd place despite the 1st place winner using an idea that has been plastered all over the internet for years. Everyone kept telling me all day how mine should have won because it was original. So that was nice to hear. 2nd place still landed me a $35 gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings though! So me and the hubby will be grubbing sometime this weekend to celebrate.

I have always been a Halloween freak. I have so many awesome memories of my Mom and her best friend Jackie dressing me up in fun costumes. The best part is I always had a part in picking out what I wanted to be.. who I wanted to be and loved every minute of it. My Dad use to take part in the Halloween fun as well. He would get into Halloween and dress up as characters and sit out side on his front porch for the trick or treaters. One of my faves he did was actually Beetlejuice. He even dressed as McDonald’s Mac Tonight and got on his roof and danced and sang for the trick or treaters. He also use to take me to Boo at the Zoo every year as well.

As I have gotten older Halloween “time” has become more and more special to me.

Sunday is not only Halloween but mine and my husband Frank’s 1 year wedding anniversary!! Last weekend marked 12 years from our 1st date 🙂 which was our Homecoming dance our senior year of high school. Our 2nd date was Fright Fest at Great America haha. Next Sunday on 11/7 we mark the official 12 years of being an official couple! Ever since I was a little kid I have just loved this time of year!! Which of course makes it even more awesome that me and my husband started to date during this time of year. It was like it was meant to be. And getting married on Halloween last year was unforgettable and couldn’t have been more “us”. Every year when fall comes around and the leaves start changing I have so many wonderful memories to look back on and so many to continue to look forward to. On top of everything it has also inspired me in  my art work as well!! So when you look at my art pieces remember the artist is that little girl who obsessed over Halloween and never let it go! ha ha!
