Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Today I have some treats for you.

Really, these treats are more reasons for you to make fun of me so please watch and read on.

I mean, in this post I am featuring pictures from childhood Halloweens. Annnd I made a vlog. I sure hope I'm making my new Followers feel welcome!

First up, let's rip off the band aid and get to the vlog. I'm linking up with Erin and Ashley for their fun theme:

Time limit: Vlogs should be 2-3 minutes long
Introduce yourself and your blog
Share with the rest of us: What are 3 items you couldn't get through the day without?


 Not gonna lie, I'm a little nervous to share this with you! It's very short, so please watch...or just keep scrolling on to the pictures!




Second, my parents had fun going through old pictures and sent me some from my earlier years. 
I just had to do a Way Back {When}sday post with Rachel from Can't Google Everything for these memories frozen in time.

First up is my princess costume...or at least I think it's a princess costume judging by the tiara. However, the outfit suggests I'm about to bake a pie with help from my Barbie.


Second, my ballerina costume. I never took a dance lesson but I NEEDED a tutu. 
I guess I also needed to wear it mid-torso.


Next up is one of my favorites, a family picture. Hello, my name is Mary, and I was a little lamb.


I loved my lamb costume (apparently my brother did NOT like his), but I think my favorite has to be this gem:


I couldn't even stop eating candy long enough to take a picture. At least I struck a pose mid-chew.

So there you go, awkwardness through the years.

Speaking of awkward (as if I could avoid it), 6 of my co-workers and I are dressing as an awkward family photo at our work party later this afternoon. I'm pretty pumped!

Well, I hope I didn't turn away too many of you after this post! Please leave a comment and tell me about yourself, especially my new Readers! Do you have three things you can't live without...or can't avoid throughout your day? Any favorite Halloween costumes to share?

I think dressing up as a group as an awkward family photo is a genius idea! That's so fun. I dance randomly during the day but I never considered that awkward...hmmm...I wonder if other people do...

I can not avoid laughing (or smiling) - even on my worst day! I also can't avoid giving hugs. If there is even a slight open window to some hug potential, I am not able to fight it off! And every day I absolutely can't avoid kissing my cuter than pie toddler daughter. On the cheek, on the arm, on the toes....doesn't matter, when I'm around her, I have to smother her with love!

Thanks for your awesome post! :) :)
