Halloween Weekend

Halloween this year was spread across 2 VERY LONG days!

Friday evening my lovely tent-buddy from the 4th year pack-in at girls camp, Sandy, got *MaRrIeD* to my roommate from last year's chemistry lab partner, Tom (random, I know). Tom & Sandy did track at PimaCC where they became friends with my friend, Garrett. Logically, since Garrett would be the only person I'd know at their wedding, we decided to make it a date. The reception was beautiful (sadly we missed the ceremony =(( because someone whose name rhymes with 'sage' thought it started at 6pm when it actually started at 5pm) & I am so happy for Mr. & Mrs. Krieger! :) Afterward Garrett & I hit up the Institute for some dance-tastic fun.

Sadly: I got NO pictures of the wedding OR of our matching costumes! I am lame, I know. We were awesomely-spandexed workout gurus. All pictures I have are pirated from other people's cameras :P

Some of my favorite costumes of the night: Princess Peach & Mario and a flower

I absolutely LOVE these girls!!!--they also happen to be cousins from one degree or another (maybe awesomeness just runs in their family?)

Jessica (tweedle dee--tweedle dum was the DJ), Amanda (50s girl), Laura (a lovely lady), & Maren (a gypsy)!

Oh wait! Garrett's in that pic too! He's dancing right behind Jessica wearing that powder blue mesh half-shirt & rainbow striped sweatband :) ...too bad you can't see his shiny red spandex pants we found at Goodwill

Being a maaaaaniac... maaaaaaaaniac on the dance floor...!

Not really... but it could've been cool if they played that song!!

After the dance, Brooklyn (my roommate) and I went to IHOP with a bunch of people.

The good thing: It was so much fun hanging out with friends I haven't seen in forever (I've basically been a hermit this semester!)

The bad thing: spandex @ IHOP = f-f-fr-freezing c-c-cold!

Thankfully my amigo Brad was willing to share his wool poncho... oh and Brooklyn is a nut!

By the way, Brad wore handcuffs all night & was escorted by his Border Patrol Officer (who is sitting just to the right of him in this pic) ...slightly offensive?

After getting to bed in the wee hours of the morning, I had to wake up not much later to ride up to Phoenix for my friend Catherine's bridal shower. Holy longest day ever--made longer by my lack of sleep--as it took Cat 3 hours to open all of her gifts!!! But I really enjoyed getting to spend time with Natalie & eating all the delicious party food while we were there :)

I rode back to Tucson with Cat & went straight to our adult session of Stake Conference (which was just awesome! my posterity can read all about it in my journal...) Afterward, I threw together my next costume (in record time, I think: 20 min) & headed to the "After-Halloween Dance Party" for more good times. At this point I was so burnt out I think I only stayed at the party maybe 40 min... which was less time than it took to clean & comb out...

Oh & Ali Hayes!

(That's my Amy Winehouse face, btw)

Sadly, my hair deflated quite a bit by the time we got any pictures... but whatever. It was only the after-halloween party... :)

BROOKLYN (pirate) & I!

well... that's it :)

Happy Halloween Weekend!

Two words: Awe. Some.

Eventhough I saw the pics on Facebook, I died just as hard laughing all over again.

LOVE IT!!! Is there a single Halloween in the past 10 years where you haven't had a COOL--DO-A-DOUBLE-TAKE costume? I didn't think so. =)
