fourteen for friday?

1. sorry I missed yesterday. the first thursday thirteen I have missed in a while! so to make it up to you, I will do fourteen on Friday.

2. so, since halloween is on a Saturday this year, school celebrations are happening today. Maggie and I headed over to watch the costume parade.
some of those costumes are so creative. some not so much. when will that scream mask guy ever go away?

3. I am a bit dissappointed in myself this year. I am a big believer in homemade costumes as opposed to store bought cheapness.
well, this year, 2 out of 3 are in store bought stuff.
I hang my head in shame.

4. The costume Sadie is wearing looked so cute in the store. on her in the school hallway- well, I was thinking- what was I thinking? should have saved my half price money.

6. which brings me to another thought. why is halloween stuff mostly half off before halloween is even over? well, I am really not complaining, since the day after halloween is Sunday and I won't be shopping, I am glad to get it cheaper now! except the candy. I might have to head out on Monday and see how picked over it is.

7. Last year I went to walmart the day after halloween- I think- it could have been 2 days after, I am not sure, but there was no sign that halloween ever happened, Christmas had taken over. crazy stuff.

8. I bought these super cute little magnetic spiders- on sale, of course, to stick on our front door for halloween. (our door is made of metal, so it was perfect!- here is maggie keeping her eye on one!
9. and here are the rest, invading!10. I went into one store on Wednesday, and saw this cute halloween tree- but thought I will wait until after halloween until it is half price, then snatch it up. well, really, I only had to wait one day, and go to the same store, but at a different location- and there it was, half off. so I can enjoy it this halloween. I think I need to think of some cute little ornaments I can hang on the branches.
11. It looks like the bottom is crazy, but those are just legs from a big spider that is behind the tree. just so you know. in case you were wondering.

12. candy jar almost full of candy corn. must be halloween!

13. a vampire! ahhh!
walking so fast past me in the school hallway-
so this is what I got!

14. I got to go on a trip with Cory this week- he had a business trip, and I tagged along. and basically shopped for 2 days. good times.
so, I picked up this little ring for me- for fun.
fake, of course, but still fun.
I looked down today, and one of the stones fell out.

my diamond!
oh, I mean, my cubic zirconia!
I guess you get what you pay for!
maybe it will turn up somewhere and I can crazy glue it back in!
because I am very fancy like that!

I love your door spiders. I want to see Sadie's costume. That vampire picture is really cool. DON'T YOU HAVE A REAL RING?

hahaha- nice ring.
love the door spiders too. Very cool. And great halloween tree. I was wondering about that bottom, so thanks for clarifying.
Congrats on joining the rest of us costume buying parents. I was impressed I had all mine bought in September.
