What do you do when you’re married, but you don’t have any kids/any friends to throw a Halloween party with? Dress up anyways!!! Although we didn’t have any big Halloween plans, we didn’t let that stop us from going all out on the costumes. With Beto in town, it only seemed fitting that we cruise the streets as Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach. (Even though most people were like, “Dang it’s Mario & Luigi! Oh and look. A pretty princess?” I didn’t know that many people lived under rocks.) It was basically an excuse for us to run around town and take a bunch of pictures, mooch a little food from the ward and neighborhood parties, and entertain all the workers in the Dairy Queen drive-thru. I’m pretty sure we all fell asleep by 11 that night. Party animals!!
Now I just have to add a quick story about the dress! I had no clue what I was going to do for my dress. Now I can sew up a couple of pairs of overalls, but I didn’t dare attempt a poofy pink ball gown. When I was back home visiting, we stopped in to Goodwill for something, browsing the costumes on our way in. My sister turns the corner holding up the magical dress. “What about this one?” It was TOO perfect! Fit perfectly, and it was only 5 bucks! A Halloween miracle.
