I didn't have the money for a costume and I didn't go to any parties, but I had an amazing Halloween with hubby!Honestly, I'm not much of a party-goer, so I was excited when hubby and I planned to watch Halloween themed movies. We had "The Raven," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," and "Dark Shadows." Since I'm my own version of the living dead by 9pm, we didn't get to watch them all, but we did watch "Dark Shadows" and loved it. The trailers were questionable, but the storyline was better than we thought and I'd definitely watch it again. Plus, it is Johnny Depp. I may be married, but who doesn't enjoy a little Johnny eye candy? I'm really excited about the Halloween basket I made Robert, too. For Easter, hubby made my brother and me baskets because my parents were out of town. We always celebrate as a family and it wasn't the same without them, but I've never forgotten how Robert went out of his way to make it special. The baskets meant a lot to us, so I put together a Halloween bucket of his favorites, like Mike and Ike's, gummy worms, and a variety of chocolates. My favourite part was the basket. Hubby loves Scooby Doo and is always watching the cartoons, so when I saw a Scooby bucket, I knew I'd found a winner. Although I try, I always lack creativity when it comes to putting little gifts together, so it made my night seeing that he loved it so much.All in all, we had a really cozy Halloween and I only wish we could have stayed up later to finish our marathon. How did you spend your Halloween? Anyone have to adhere to an early start like me?
