Halloween 2013


Ok, so I'm slowly catching up! This Halloween was I big one: it was the first time I got to take November trick or treating and...I turned 30! I put an exclamation point on the end of the last sentence, but honestly, I was not excited about my birthday this year. 

I was just not in the mood to celebrate this year. I wasn't too pleased that I was turning 30, for one, and for another, I just didn't have the energy to make a big deal out of it. Instead, I kept it simple. First off, I got my hair done...
My hair is now auburn! First big color change in years! My awesome friend Mackenzie did a great job, I love it. Then I went out to a cabaret version of Tim Burton's 'nightmare before Christmas' (a couple days before my birthday) with my friend Robin and her fiancé Brett...
then the next day I had a small party at a bar next to my work where my mom was hosting karaoke...
Then on actual Halloween (which is my actual birthday) I took November to Robin's house to go trick or treating with Mila!
She was really nervous and confused at first...can you tell?! But she eventually got into it, and even started walking up to the houses with Mila. I think it helped when she finally had her very first piece of candy (reluctantly given by me) and realized just what the whole point of trick or treating was!
She's in a phase where she doesn't like having her picture taken, and when she does, she won't sit still. So lots of our recent pictures look like this; the vacant stare of a child distracted by a movie.
Isn't my lil Seahawks cheerleader just adorable! Despite my reluctance to turn 30, this was a great Halloween. I'm so grateful for all the friends and family I got to share it with!
