I have a love for costumes…

>A post about the Turkey Trot is pending (still waiting for Kristie to post more pictures!), so I’m switching gears a little to express my mounting joy for this weekend’s upcoming activities.

I’m getting oh-so excited for our tacky christmas party! 

In college, I was introduced to the “Ugly Sweater Party,” and of course, we went all out ever year we could (pictures to come).Come to think of it… I think I’ve always had a thing for costumes. 

looks like it runs in the family.  cool clown costume, Amy.

I’d go out on a limb and say Halloween is for sure second on my list of favorite holidays (I can’t take away the #1 spot from Christmas… there’s just too much joy for Halloween to override it).
There have been high school field hockey team themes.
calling all SHSFH05 Renegade Regulators – remember this one?

Then I apparently needed a year of college to figure out I needed to get some cooler costumes…

wow, a ladybug? extremely original.

So the next year, I found a costume that played off my internship with NASCAR.

vroom, vroom!
…and yes, that’s a jar of peanut butter and a girls volleyball team around me.
And then I found a costume with POCKETS.  Winnnnnerrrrr!
I’m a home wrecker! get it?
After those few years, I finally discovered just how much fun you can have when you get creative yourself.
THAT is gladiator domination. completely homemade costumes!
And this year, my personal favorite, was a tribute to my most favorite pop artist out there… hellloooo Ke$ha!

1. it’s a fake bottle of Jack – just a Fiji waterbottle.
2. family members from afar, I have NOT flown off the handle. this was just Halloween.

Is it just me, or are the craziest costumes the most fun?  I think it’s like starring in plays and musicals – the most fun characters are the ones who are nothing like your actual self.  🙂

Aaaaaaanyway, this is all relevant to my plans for this weekend.  Just wait till you see my tacky Christmas costume for our beach partaay! Woohoo!
