Halloween Blast from the Past

This year with Halloween being on a week night and Steve being out of town, I will probably just sit at home and watch scary movies, alone, with a glass of wine.  Who am I kidding, scary movies are not my thing! But the wine will definitely be present. How can I not be a fan of scary movies you may ask? Well, because I'm a total believer that they could all happen in real life. Possibly also one of the reasons I did not have many dolls as a child. And yes, I believe in ghosts and UFOs. I was the crazy kid that swore she saw a UFO out her bedroom window.

So, I stick to the "safe" Halloween movies. The ones without chainsaw-wielding men or paranormal activity. Here's a list of my favorite [safe] Halloween movies:

Do you have any favorite Halloween movies? 

While we're talking Halloween, let's take a quick look back at some of my costumes over the past 7+ years, my "ghosts of costumes passed", back to the days when dressing up for Halloween meant parties and $ beers. (I apologize in advance for not asking the permission of those of you in these pictures.)

Definitely not my finest moments, but definitely some amazing memories.

What's your favorite Halloween memory?

  1. hocus pocus & nightmare before christmas are by far my favorite.

    beetlejuice movies freaks me out. lol

  2. I love dressing as a witch...
    since my name is Hazel..it fits

  3. I love all of those movies :) I am not a scary movie person either but I love the kiddie Halloween movies :)

  4. Haha! Those costumes are too funny. I love Halloween and scary movies! But even as much as I love them, I can't watch them alone. :-)

  5. I soooo couldn't agree more with you on not being a fan of the scary movies. #FREAKSMEOUT

    And loved your costumes!

  6. oooh yes these halloween movies are perfect for me! and you've had some pretty great cosumtes!

  7. Ghostbusters and Hocus Pocus are the best! I love those costumes and can't wait to see what you do this year!

  8. Hahahah Mar. I knew you were gonna put up a photo of us: Roxy, Trixie and Ron. Definitely our finest moment of university. Can't believe you never pursued a career in dollar-store-keyboard-musical-genius. Xxx

  9. Love your movie list. I have to add Goonies to mine - that is a classic :)

  10. The Nightmare Before Christmas will always be my favorite movie!

  11. I also do NOT go for serial killers wielding chainsaws. Though I am a complete zombie-phile, so episodes of "The Walking Dead," "Night of the Living Dead," and "Dawn of the Dead" will be on repeat. I also love the old old old classic horror movies, like "Dracula" with Bela Lugosi (we're talking early 1930s) and "Frankenstein" with Boris Karloff.


I would love to hear from you!
