We didn’t really have plans for Halloween this year. There are not too many people our age in FL so I wasn’t expecting too much. We found out last minute that there was a party happening at the arena in town so threw some costumes together, gathered our friends, and had a good time! The party was held in a small room above the ice rinks so it wasn’t like a club or anything…but when you have a live band, Joel, good people, and lots of drinks, anything can be fun.
I dressed up as a trailer trash teen mom…maybe not the best choice considering where I am, but I think people like it! Everyone was touching my ‘belly’ and some people even thought it was real. I guess the beer that I was drinking wasn’t a clear enough sign that I wasn’t really preggers?
We had to work the next day on the real Halloween, but we were still able to decorate our house quickly and hand out candy to the 10 children that came to out door. Apparently the mining apartments aren’t trick-or-treating hot spots. Maybe it’s because we live across from a graveyard at the other end of town? Or no one in our section even decorated their houses? I don’t know why kids stay away…
After the candy giving, we ran down the to beach to watch the fireworks that the local firemen put on. They were amazing! I was sooo impressed. They even had this massive bonfire going to keep everyone warm. Cozy cozy cozy times! It’s so weird here though. We all live about a 10 minute walk from the lake because the town is so small, but literally everyone drove. It wasn’t even that cold out but people still had to drive. There was traffic! I hate driving so much…I will never fit in here.
