My mama always made Halloween so fun (lots of decorations, hand sewn costumes, school activities, etc) growing up, so this holiday holds a special place in my inner-child's heart. I mean it's the one day of the year that you're expected (and encouraged!) to be something that you're not! She sent me some wicked (pun intended) green socks this year as a little gift, so I naturally had to put them to good use for my costume today :) Yep, this is what I'm rocking at work....
I couldn't pass up the opportunity to celebrate with my coworkers (i.e. I'm forcing 13 boys to put up with my school-teacher side at lunch today), thus I've created a few little tricks and treats for them.
Orange cupcakes with chocolate swirls...
That Drea and I turned into little witches!
I also prepped some mini grilled cheeses to serve up for lunch that we turned into festive treats, courtesy of a couple of cookie cutters...
Mummy cheese dogs, anyone?
And finally some apple Monster Mouths (my attempt to offer something somewhat healthy)....
This weekend was a hoot of time dressing up with my two fave SF gal pals.
I think I pulled off the "Hipster Dorothy" pretty well with my fellow Cowardly Lion and Tin Man :)
So much fun!
Happy Halloween from my desk to yours :)
Love and Light,
