Have a fun and safe Evening! Keep your furbabies safe and away from opening doors.
Last night was the pumpkin carving party at Don’s house. Here are the wonderful pumpkins that were carved. It was a fun time for all.
I started out dressing like a Vampire, but the wig cap/wig gave me a headache. My fitted Vampire teeth were a pain in the mouth! lol
So, ended up as a Witch. The lace on my hat is over 90 years old. It was my Nana’s. There is also a black rose with it. This is my favorite Witch hat. Yes, I have more than one. 😛
My fabulous make-up was done by Steph. She made me look damn good for a 51 year old. lol
Even with the pain, I had so much fun! I have let fear, being self-conscious, and embarrassment from my illness stop me from doing so many things. I know there will be times when my condition will keep from doing certain things. It makes me sad to not be able to be ‘normal’. One thing is for sure; I am blessed with a support team that always has my back. They never give up on me, even when I give up on myself. I am one of the lucky ones!
The past few years I haven’t done the Halloween thing. Bums me out as Halloween is a favorite day for me. I used to always dress up and hand out candy. Scaring kids was and added plus for me. 😛
Tomorrow is going to be so exciting for me. My former nurse and now my BFF Don is having a pumpkin carving contest party at his home. I’M GOING TO DRESS UP!! It’s been so long since getting out my Halloween gear; dress, wigs, jewelry, makeup, etc. Steph and her crew are going, as well as my family. I can’t wait to meet Don’s friends and make some new friends in the process. It’s the little things in life that make so happy. I won’t be doing any carving myself, as knives and me don’t go together very well.
So, YAY for me!! I’m finally getting out and doing things again. Taking baby steps, or rolls. lol
I love Halloween. I can be anyone I want to be. I am able to dress like the ‘witch’ I am. lol
This was me last year. I’l be doing the same this year as I love my Witches hat. lol I am hoping to get better pics this year as my dress is awesome! There is a cool corset involved as well. All handmade from here:
