Happy October, everyone! October is one of my favorite months because it means football season is in full swing, cider and donuts are a perfectly acceptable choice for a meal, and, of course, Halloween is in the air!
I thought I would start the month off right with a recap of the party we threw at our house last year with the help of our friend Krysten.
We did a costume theme of “envy” and asked everyone to dress as someone he or she would want to be.
I was slightly scared since my husband and friend were envious of mobsters, while my two other friends were envious of Joe Dirt and the Joker! Can you guess all the costumes? Here are some of my favorites paired with their inspiration:
A Peach from A League of Their Own…
Sully the Pilot…
And the Flight of the Conchords! (That is my sister and I…)
We made TONS of food. A few things on the menu were brain Jell-O, Graveyard Pudding, Witches’ Fingers, Breadstick Bones with Blood Sauce, and Buckeye Eyeballs.
We ate, drank, rocked out, and played mafia into the wee hours of the night. So fun!
We have already started planning this year’s shin dig, and I can’t wait to share those details with you too!
