Halloween at the Frye House

Since we don't have kids to dress up and take trick or treating, Derek and I aren't huge Halloween people. We don't normally dress up, decorate the house or go to parties, but we aren't complete Halloween scrooges either.

Here are a few Halloween activities we do participate in:

Dressing up my dog, Texan. Last year he was superman which was carefully planned out and happens to be his dads favorite. This year his mom (me) didn't go shopping until Halloween at about 5:30pm so he got a cute little nightmare before Christmas sweater.

PS: He hates it. Look at that face of shame. 

In September, I was invited to a candle party. I ended up buying this glass candle holder with tons of possibilities. For Halloween I filled the holder with candy corn and lit an orange candle. See we can be festive! I plan to change out the decoration to fit the current holiday. 

Derek and I carved pumpkins a week ago. It was nice to spend time together. I got my inspiration for a mummy pumpkin off Pinterest. This is what it should have looked like:

And here is what mine ended up looking like:

Mummy Pumpkin
A happy mummy? Kinda? Whatever, the eyes are cool and it was time well spent together.

While we were waiting for trick or treaters to come to the door I made myself a little drink with what we already had in the fridge. I saw a pin earlier in the week about a girls night Mike-A-Rita and thanks to a recent college reunion at our house I had all the ingredients. Mix tequila (I used two shots), strawberry margarita mix and ice in a blender, blend well. Pour mixture into a glass, margarita or regular and quickly dunk a Mikes Hard Pink Lemonade into your glass. Careful not to spill! Enjoy!

I might not wear a Halloween costume but I will go for some cute Halloween themed nails. Not being a nail pro I was pretty happy with the results. That is until I glanced at my Halloween candle posted above and noticed my mistake. I totally mixed up the orange and white color order. Blame it on dyslexia. By the time I was done I was way too tired to go back and fix them so I rocked the dyslexic candy corn look. I got my inspiration from a pin posted by Pretty Gossip, if you don't read her blog you totally should. She used a make up sponge to apply the color, I used strips of cut up band aides to separate the different sections of my nail. Here's how they turned out vs the Pretty Gossip version:

Keep Pinning!
