Hola! Mi nombre es T. ¿Cómo estás?

TEN was going to be a Mexican Tequila Ranch Hand Farmer El Rodeo Server such thing for Halloween last year.  As it turns out, that didn't happen.  So, he's decided he will be that this year.  I don't really have a photo of his costume, but it's something along the lines of this:

Truth be told, neither of us have been very excited about Halloween this year.  Every year it's a big to do, starting months prior.  This year I've had way too many truly important things going on to worry about a Halloween costume :(

It really wouldn't bother me one bit if TEN and I skipped the Halloween Party this year.  It's been the same old thing, with the same old people, for the last 5 years.  I'm kindove over it. 

BUT...we're going. 

So, I needed to be something...and I really didn't care what that something was.  The forecast is now calling for rain, and so I have ordered the following "plastic" costume to wear out Saturday night:

Yes, I realize that this is more of a Spanish/Latin Dancer costume than a Mexican Tequila Ranch Hand Farmer El Rodeo Server type thing like TEN.  But it's plastic.  And there is a headpiece with grapes and bananas and oranges and such on it.  I've secretly always wanted to wear a basket of fruit on my head ;) 

So, there you have it.  I've also purchased the maracas.  Because what good is the costume without those?

What are you going to be for Halloween this year?  Are you excited?  Am I just getting old because I'm NOT excited about Halloween this year?

I've never been excited about Halloween except as a kid.
I think it's expensive and overrated.
Expensive -- as in buying or coming up with a costume you're going to wear once.
Here's what I've been in the past as an adult:
*50's girl
*Hooters girl
*graduate(easy and cheap)
*Flapper girl

Have fun!

I generally LOVE Halloween, but having moved to a new state and not having any parties to go to this year will be kind of a flop. I've thought of making myself a cheap and easy Mummy costume since I am 7 months pregnant to wear while I pass out candy to kids, though.

Good for you for following through with Halloween. Halloween and I have issues with each other. It's like New Years- never as fun as I think it's going to be! So this year I think I'm attending our block party with Halloween colors on rather than a costume! It's the safest bet! Yours is so cute though!

You're way better than I am. I'm going to a party dressed as Linus and am trying to convince my husband (who has no desire to dress up) to wear an orange shirt with a name tag that states: I'm the Great Pumpkin. I'm here with Linus.

I am one of those blah about Halloween people. It's a holiday to get through to get to the good ones; Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Years! This year I will be a DCC (Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader), which is a secret dream of mine to be an actual one...if only...:) HA!

You need to suck it up and get excited about Halloween! Lol. I might be biased, since it's my favorite holiday. Plus, it's a big to-do because a group of us always rendezvous in Morgantown for a weekend of fun. If it makes you feel better, though, I'll be in a costume that consists of spandex shorts. In snow. You're welcome.
