Halloween Fun

I was going to do a post about my entire Halloween night, but frankly, I'm just not feeling it, so I will do a quick little recap.

I went to a monster theme murder mystery dinner party that was being thrown by some co-workers of mine. I went as The Wicked Witch and it was a lot of fun. If you have never taken part in a murder mystery dinner, I suggest you do because it is the perfect opportunity for normal, functioning adults to act like children.

Before the party, however, my sister and I handed out candy to the neighborhood kids. I love seeing all the little ones all dressed up, so I made sure to stick around for that. And - can I just say that those who came to our place like, totally SCORED!!! We had full size Skittles, M&M's (regular and peanut), Starbursts and 3 Musketeers. I wish I had been a kid coming to my house on Halloween. The closer it got to us leaving, my sister started handing them out two at a time.

Pretty much full blown awsomeness for a kid and we enjoyed hearing their comments which were along the lines of, "Mom - I got a FULL skittles!!!"

Oh yes, kids do love candy and never have I heard this more perfectly verbalized than in the Jerry Seinfeld stand-up show he did in NYC a few years ago. And so, because I love you all, I will leave you with this clip of comic genius from one of my all-time favorites as he describes what Halloween was like for him as a kid. I hope that you all had a wonderful Halloween!


  1. OK! I can't stand it. Full-size candy hand-outs and a perfectly organized candy bowl! Heavens girl. You have certaily topped my laundry basket filled with dorito bags!

  2. I've always wanted to do one of those murder mystery dinners. Sounds like a blast. Sounds like your house was the 'cool' house on the block! :)

  3. LOVE THIS... and I love Jerry. Such a nice organized bowl of candy too!

  4. I bet you make a Wicked, Wicked Witch!

  5. Mmmmm, M&M's. I wish I had been a kid coming to your house on Halloween! And the murder mystery dinner sounds like so much fun.

  6. FULL SIZE?! TWO AT A TIME? You rich woman! I went broke buying the fun size snickers in bulk.
