Little Bo Peep lost her sheep, but found beer!

Check out this awesome costume from the depths of my neighbor’s closet!


Hehe. Yep, Little Bo Peep!! My neighbors have been going to costume parties since like the 60s and have a HUGE closet full of costumes, most of them at least partially home-made! Apparently this one goes back to the 70s, and the original pink dress (before she cut it in the front and sewed the laces in… and obviously without the undershirt and apron!) was what my neighbor wore to her debutante ball!! So cool :) Fit perfectly, too.

I had a blast at the cul-de-sac Halloween party — all the neighbors helped out and created a huge haunted house in one of the neighbor’s garages!


It was really awesome! There was a vampire theme and it even included a poster of Edward and Bella, he he he. ;)

Another neighbor’s garage was filled with all sorts of food, including almost 300 hot dogs!! I love hot dogs :) While I don’t eat much meat, I’m not sure I could ever go fully vegetarian because of a) hot dogs, and b) BBQ. ;) So yummy!!

I hung out at the house with the graveyard and the kegs (obviously) for most of the night ;) All the parents bringing their kids around were like OMG… beer, yes please!! Haha.


We saw some seriously adorable costumes — I’d say a couple hundred people came to the block party!


Afterwards, I changed into another costume from my neighbor’s closet — a flapper dress and cute feather headband — and went out to another house party! Sadly the photos are on a friend’s camera, though :(

Alright… back to work! I’ve been very productive today (finally)!

Come back tomorrow to see my final awesome appetizer recipe from Thursday’s party — PUMPKIN MUFFIN TOPS!!! Omg they were good.

Bye :)

    Anne your costume is awesome. I wish I knew your neighbours. My costume took about 100 hours to make (well to make 4 costumes).
