Snickers and a Fab Orange Dress: It's Halloween

via Country Living
Happy Halloween, ghoulish gals! I'm loving a few things about this particular Halloween, not the least of which is the near-freezing 55 degree temps outside. You see, it's a rare thing to have an All Hallow's Eve that is less than 80 degrees, at least here in Arkansas...

Here are some ways in which I plan to commemorate this sugar-filled, heavily-costumed holiday:

1) By devouring the other half of the trick-or-treat candy (hello, Snickers!) this evening, just in time to run out and purchase more before the trick-or-treaters arrive.

2) By watching a scary movie, something like Halloweentown or Halloween Town II: Kalabar's Revenge on the Disney Channel. I have exquisitely mature taste, you see...

3) By driving over to Maude to purchase this amazing dress I spotted whilst hanging out in the store before the blogger photo shoot yesterday (pics forthcoming). Hey, it's burnt orange! Totally has Halloween written all over it...right? Right??

4) By scheduling a hair appointment A.S.A.P. after realizing at said blogger photo shoot yesterday that my roots were truly frightening. Just consider it my mane's way of saying, "Boo! Y'all."

5) By dressing our two German Sheppards in costumes before Stephen gets home from work. This will take a lot of caffeine and Olympic-like acrobatics from me. Have you ever tried to wrestle two 100 pound dogs into pirate costumes? Werk.

What say you, Blonde Ambitioners? How do you anticipate spending this beautiful Halloween holiday? A fabulous fĂȘte in store for you, perhaps?

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. I am thinking about curling up on my couch and watching some mindless TV - riveting eh? - Sarah

  2. I am planning on spending time eating chocolates and handing out candy at my grandmas. I love the dress, so pretty!! Happy Halloween!

  3. Cute dress! Can't wait to see the pups dressed up!

  4. I love your taste in movies! We celebrated last night with friends - because our husbands have practice today - but later tonight I'll be heading over to a good friend's to watch Hocus Pocus!!!!!!! She's never seen it and that is just crazy to me. I think it's a great way to spend Halloween when "you're all grown up"!

  5. You are TOO cute! Good luck with the pups, love! I plan on having a ghoulish dinner with friends and passing out candy to the little goblins that come to Adam's door! :)

    Happy Halloween!

    I think this year I'm bringing out the boots, which never happens this time of year, light my new spiced apple toddy candle, sip my pumpkin spice latte and enjoy this lovely weather!

  11. My roots are getting terrible too!

    I didn't do anything for Halloween this year! I had to work late so by the time I was done all of the excting festivities were over.
