Happy Halloween!

Halloween was always my favorite holiday growing up. I loved to get creative with my costumes and I obviously loved the candy. Some of my best costumes were thought up in recent years.

But this October, for some reason, I just didn't have the energy to think too much about it. I guess I'm getting old and lame. Luckily, Josh came up with an amazing idea, requiring very much creativity so I just helped him be crafty and dressed in some of my abundant supply of vintage attire to turn it into a couple costume.

We were Macho Man Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth. And people loved it. Some of them, at least, knew who I was.

But still I was more jealous of my multiple friends retreating to the mountains and the bloggers were racing this weekend than I was excited to dress in costume and drink beer.

So today, when dressing for the costume party at work, which we were instructed to come to as "a famous girl scout alum", I decided to stay more true to me. I was Shannon Macmillan, Olympic Gold Medalist and World Cup Champion on the US Women's National Team. An excuse to wear a sports bra, athletic shorts, and soccer cleats to the office?? Sign me up.

I had an actual number and name on my shirt, and wore a medal around today. But I failed to take a picture of anything but the basics. And since I still had to sit at my desk and do work for 7 hours, I didn't get to actually sweat in the soccer gear. So I came home and put on my best orange and black dri-fit clothing and ran my Virtual Halloween 5k, half of which was with Nikki. We saw some cute little kids along the way and felt super urban when we watched them waltz into convenience stores to trick or treat.

I wasn't sure exactly how Josh and I were going to celebrate tonight but, unfortunately, I knew it wasn't going to be by trick or treating. When I got home, we made grilled cheese, spinach, and tomato soup. We ate cupcakes, drank woodchuck cider and are now trying to pick out a good, but not too scary, Halloween movie. That's a tough one.

I hope everyone had a happy Halloween! What is the best thing you've ever dressed as?
