Hello, friends, we’re in October! Can you believe that? This is one of my favorite times of year as I’m sure every basic gal agrees with me. I’ve already found a new way to drink Pumpkin Spice drinks thanks to one of my fellow military spouse friends. Shoutout to Emily Hanisco!
Now onto the good stuff! To give you a bit of a background on this – you must first know that I really didn’t grow up celebrating Halloween. Not that there is anything wrong with that, it just wasn’t one of the recognized holidays in my family’s house. In fact, by the time I was fifteen years old I felt so deprived of all those years I didn’t go Trick or Treating that my best friend and I went Trick or Treating ourselves…at 15 years old. I remember being SO excited to go that Halloween and I’ll never forget all of the odd looks from parents as they opened their doors to see two teenagers standing there waiting for candy. Some of them refused us but we had a good laugh and created some awesome memories that night.
