Here's an edgier way to wear head to toe black which, for me, is kind of the M.O. of dressing in all black. The first thing that I always think of when I think of all black looks is the goth kids in high school that I used to hang out with--everything was black from their nail polish (boys and girls) to the lipstick to their clothes. And I was fine with it.
I cannot believe that tomorrow is Halloween already. After Halloween I get all antsy about the holidays. Yes, I am one of those annoying Christmas loves that starts counting down to Christmas as soon as Halloween is over. Thanksgiving--yeah great, but for me Christmas is where it's at. I do, however, abstain from decorating until after Thanksgiving. #selfcontrol
This year and last year we do not have Conner and Brielle for trick or treating. At first, last year, I was sad. I'd had the kids for trick or treating for five years in a row prior. But it turned out that sitting around handing out candy is just as great--relaxing.
The problem with last year, however, was that Reilly was really little. And Patrick had disconnected the doorbell so it wouldn't wake him if he was sleeping. About 8:00 we wondered why we hadn't had any trick or treaters--we do live in a very kid friendly neighborhood. Wonder how many kids came by and thought we were jerks just ignoring their doorbell ringing. Whooopsie.
