Just when I was starting to get used to October it’s November already. I didn’t even get one of those Pumpkin Spice Latte’s in. Who am I kidding, I can’t handle all that goodness anyway. Maybe during the winter season I’ll be a little more adventurous and stray from my Friday Skinny Vanilla Latte (with No Foam). We’ll see. I can’t promise anything.
Halloween is over, and I feel like I just started preparing. That has nothing to do with the fact that I actually did just start preparing. It’s never been my favorite holiday, mostly because as an adult I typically have had nothing to do and no one to do it with. This year I scraped together some friends (read: five at the highest point of the night) for a little get together. At least it gave me an excuse to dress up and make some Halloween food!
I made these mini pizzas for our guests, and they were a huge hit. They were delicious, if I do say so myself. Now that Halloween is over, these are the perfect alternative to late Saturday night Jack in the Box runs. There’s gotta be less calories in these than in those tacos. Or maybe not, since no one has ANY idea what is actually in those tacos.I also needed a costume. Since I’m now thirty years old, I don’t think it’s appropriate to buy a costume at the Halloween store. I mean, I know that those cat ears make the ten inches of fabric look completely realistic, but I just can’t pull that off anymore. That was so last year.I saw a Bubble Gum Machine photo on Pinterest and thought it looked pretty easy. It was. Finding the pom-poms was not. Note to Reader: Buy them long before Halloween. Every Michael’s in our city was sold out. Thank God for my husband’s day off and trip to Hobby Lobby. If only it were closer. I’d be broke.
Red Tank (and Blazer for work)
Pom Poms (at least 7 bags for the front side)
I’m pretty sure I don’t have to list out every step. Just hot glue those babies right onto your red tank. You’ll want to use something to stretch out your shirt as you glue, otherwise when you put the shirt on you’ll be stuck with gaps. No good.What were you for Halloween? What was the best costume you saw?! Or should I say, how many Elsa’s knocked at your front door?
