Remember this little metallic skirt from this post? Well I promised myself I wouldn’t let it sit unworn in my closet forever, so today I’m taking her for a spin with a slouchy little sweater and those favorite sneakers again. And will probably be re-wearing it for dinner tonight at the Red O. Yep, dinner, because this year we are skipping Halloween.
You can call me a Halloween scrooge, but trick-or-treating in our neighborhood is seriously aggressive. There is a house that was built to look like a castle that throws the biggest haunted house in the city and invites everyone in, so we get tons and tons of families passing through. Last year we went through 750 candy bars by 7:30 and got yelled at by two disgruntled mothers for running out. I’m not even kidding.
So this year I bought the usual giant mound of expensive candy, thought about Weeze losing her mind with every single “trick-or-treat”, and figured this year we could use a break. Candy was returned, dinner reservations were made, and we’re taking our little hot dog to hang with her best doggo pal. I know, I know – are we totally lame? I don’t care, and I’m sure we’ll be back in the treat-giving action next year. But maybe if you’re hitting the streets with your kids tonight, try not to yell at people for running out of candy. I don’t know, just a thought.
Happy Halloween, friends!
