Halloween Blast


On Saturday, my husband and I attended two parties. Did we know who threw the parties? Of course! We met them that night! A friend of mine invited us to a party, so who are we to decline?

Here's the diagram for what went went about on Saturday:



The first party was fun. I was awkward to walk into a house of someone I didn't know but at the same time, I was looking forward to meeting new people. There were a ton of people blocking the front door entrance and one girl in particular said hi to Jordan and I. Being that she was polite, I said hi in return. At the end of the party, I bumped into the same girl again and discovered that it was her party. *teehee* We met a lot of new people and my husband finally met my friend's husband. I haven't seen that friend of mine in months so Jordan and I decided that the drive was worth it. Since most of the people we were conversing with left and there were cliques at that part, we decided to go to another one.

We were met with a plethora of zombies at the door of the second party. It was a laid back party with less people who were more sociable. I tried my first ever chocolate cake shot. Being that I'm a light drinker with a ton of allergies, I choose to steer away from alcohol. I must say, that shot was the bomb! As the host of the party explained, it was half and half of vanilla vodka and hazelnut liquor. The drink was served chilled in a shot glass with the rim lined with sugar.

Oh yeah! The outfits! I was dressed as a 20's flapper while my husband was dressed to the nines as a mobster. My friend was The Queen of Hearts and her husband, the Oxyclean man. Our new friends were dressed as zombies.

Bringing back the 20's!


My lovely mobster husband

You gotta love red

The make up at 5:00 am

The next day, we both got up in the afternoon. I slept like a baby. Since Saturday was a busy night, we handed out candy and carved some pumpkins on Sunday.

Our pumpkins

Pretty awesome, huh?

  11. @Susie It was fun and thanks! First time carving pumpkins!

    @Fifi Call me silly but that's the first time I wore red lipstick out of the house.

    @Curves Ahead Makeup Thanks!

    @nana You should go to pumpkin patches. You might just get pumpkins for free since they're just getting rid of them now. :) Faux fur is a must for a girl to have! hihi.

    @babycakez0426 AWW! Thanks so much and you're welcome!

    @Miss*Kimmy Hey there! Thank you! I'm new to the States so I figured that meeting new people is mandatory for me if I want to have some sort of a social life. lol.

    @MINAKICHU AWW! You're the sweetest! You do too, I gotta say. ;) My hubby loves the mobster look. If he could wear it all year round, he would. :))

    @bumika Thank you!

  16. Aww that is SO sweet of youu <3 Actually I'm only wearing a bit foundation (cause I got these weird-looking red blemishes) and mascara :3 so it's not like I caked it on.. But usually I always look really tired on photos, because I have these small wrinkly lines under my eyes, which I've had since I was super tiny. xD Dunno what they're there for, but oh well.
    And trust me.. the shoes are SO comfy, you won't believe it! Even with the almost 2" heel, they's SOOOOO comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Cassie Thank you! :)

    @나니 You're welcome! I don't notice the blemishes but omg, speaking of that, I have a pimple on my lip. GRR. Of all the places! At least those lines aren't obvious. :P

    They do look cumfy but I was questioning it for a bit because of the heels but since you say so then it must be a good pair of shoes!

    @Christina in Wonderland hihihi... Why thank you! :) My aunt-in-law is amazing at what she does! <3 She can do miracles. lol. I bet you just need the right kind of makeup.

    A chocolate cake shot is half and half of vanilla vodka and hazelnut liquor. It's served chilled and the rim of the shot glass is dipped in sugar. :D
