All Hallows Eve 2014

Hi there Joyflakes!

For those of you who are completely unaware of what is happening in the world around you or what day it is, this past Friday was Halloween.  Most years, I choose my costume the night of and only after I have been forced into agreeing to go out.  Last year, I have zero recollection of doing anything for Halloween so lets pretend I stood my ground for once.  I'm pretty sure I spent halloween on my couch with a bowl of popcorn.  Although neither of us enjoy this particular holiday, this year Halloween was a slightly more thought out occasion.  My girlfriends friends from law school were throwing a party (costumes mandatory) and therefore we were obligated to attend.  Our first few costume ideas were pretty adorable and funny.  "Jack and Jill after the hill" was vetoed after learning that another couple was planning on it.  "Max and a Monster" was out because my figuring out a white onesie was apparently more than I could handle. "Salt and Pepper" or "Salt 'n' Peppa" was too overdone.  The list of options went on and on and on thanks to Pinterest but nothing really felt right for us.  I was incredibly close to suggesting we go as two people at home handing out candy (sweats and a bowl of candy) when I stumbled across the perfect option.

Paula Deen is one of my favorite cooks.  I know that there are many people who will say that she is a horrid human being (trust me I've heard it all) but I hold to the fact that she is wonderful if only because she is funny and southern and not afraid to get messy in the kitchen while making something delicious.  That is why when I stumbled across a non-traditional couples costume featuring one of my idols I knew that we had finally found our perfect costume.  I went as Paula (big hair, spatula and all!) and my girlfriend went as my favorite ingredient, butter.

For two people to aren't fans of dressing up for Halloween, I think we killed it.

Until next time!
