I am not a HALLOWEEN person. I’ve always enjoyed the holiday, but I think that’s because I enjoy candy. In high school I liked it because that meant staying up late on a school night and hanging out with friends. In college Halloween meant dance parties and IHOP at midnight. But the older I get, the more my sweet tooth looses its power, so I’m not really in it for the candy anymore. I have to COMMIT if I’m going to eat two Reese’s cups. Like I need something to chase it because the PB+ chocolate combo is getting to be to much for me in my old age. As a mother of three I like Halloween because I get to dress my kids up in adorable coordinated costumes and trunk-or-treat in a church parking lot with my friends. If we play our cards right, we can be home watching a movie by 8:30. Halloween as a parent is a total DREAM.
Since I’m not too into the Halloween scene, I try to make the few things I do as exciting as possible. Like turning our front door into a giant mummy. I’m not a DIY expert. At ALL. So if you’re a simple woman with simple decor dreams like me, here’s a simple step-by-step guide to get the most out of one dollar and keep your kids happy all October long.
