I realized as we were getting ready for Halloween 2014 that this felt like our first Halloween together since college. This was the first time we would have trick-or-treaters (we have always lived in an apartment) and the first time we were dressing up since we got married! We were invited to our friends’ Halloween party so we set out to come up with cute Halloween costumes that wouldn’t cost a bunch. I remembered seeing Kallie’s makeup tutorial and knew deer and hunter were the perfect costumes for us! Unfortunately, there isn’t much shopping in Meridian and I couldn’t find deer antlers anywhere. I ended up making mine from tin foil and washi tape but think they turned out pretty good! I also couldn’t find a brown dress so I ended up making that out of a men’s long sleeved tshirt. Life in a small town is making me resourceful 😉
We hung out on the front porch and passed out candy. The temperatures were in the high 70s all day but it got very chilly when the sun set. We live on base so we had tons of trick-or-treaters. The kids in our neighborhood are so sweet and polite!
Afterwards, we headed off base to our friends’ Halloween party. It felt like everyone that we know in Meridian was there and we had a blast. I definitely paid for it the next morning, but it was worth it 😉
