K, isn't that Ninja Turtle pumpkin the best thing you've ever seen? That's a pumpkin! It was huge! I hope you all had a wonderful, safe Halloween! Mine was so much fun, and I had a blast being Mother Nature, even though pretty much no one could guess what I was. I got Flower Child, Hawaiin girl, Greek Goddess, things of that nature. I found my dress at Savers for $3 and it couldn't have been any more perfect for my costume! I got tons of compliments on it and it is super flattering. I got my flowers and ribbon at Joann's for about $7 total, so my costume was only around $10! Awesome, right? I honestly just wanted an excuse to wear a flower crown... Haha. I always hate when holidays are on weekdays. It felt weird being at work in my costume, and THEN I had to come back to work today. Not that we partied very hard, but I still feel like I have a major sugar hangover.

My nephews came and visited me at work yesterday and I took them around trick or treating in all the departments. They had so much fun and I loved showing them off to all my coworkers. That night, we did a little bit more trick or treating on 25th street in Ogden with my sister and her little fam then went to my mother-in-law's house for some delicious soup! It couldn't have been any more perfect--we spent time with family, and that's all I can ever ask for.

The bad news though... (and I told my husband this last night as we were driving home) NOW I'm totally in the holiday spirit. I'm so ready to start my Christmas shopping and putting up our Christmas tree. I even got a Peppermint Mocha this morning, SOO yum. It's officially November so this is normal, right? Right?! Okay maybe not, but I can't help myself. Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
