Oh baby, Happy Halloween

Last night I came home from work in a terrible mood, and even though I'd picked out the perfect costume and was looking forward to going to Emily's Halloween bash. Instead I stayed home curled up in a big comfy chair glued to my laptop working to solve my work problems that are getting me down. I'm disappointed I didn't go out last night, but when I was done my mom and I went through old Halloween photos and found some gems from when I was little that really helped cheer me up.

If only the picture were close up. I'm dressed as Charlotte from Charlotte's Web in 1992. My mom sewed stuffed felt spider legs on my shirt and found me spider web leggings so that I could be my favorite book character.

  2. Awww such adorable outfits!! We didn't really celebrate Halloween in Ireland when I was a kid...the next best thing was on the 27th December and what we call 'The Wren' but the so-called dressing up involved really just meant covering your face in shoe polish so it wasn't quite as creative :)

  3. Haha that sounds great! What was the significance of the shoe polish and did you get candy?

  4. awww so cute :)  i was a pumpkin for the first three years of my life.  apparently i thought that once you had a costume that was just what you wore every year (so my mom says--she didn't argue it!)  then disney started churning out all of those princess movies and she had to slave over elaborate ariel/belle/jasmine costumes every year...

    i hope things start looking up at work.  i know from experience how problems at the office can bring your whole day down.
