Happy Halloween

Natasha and Pumpkin their first Halloween together.

Halloween is a great holiday. The sole purpose is to dress up in a costume and run house to house collecting candy. If you are a kid, what could be better?

If you're still a kid but too big to run around the neighborhood, parties are perfect. I'm babysitting Pumpkin this evening while her Mother attends a soirée as Cruella De Vil. Can't wait to see those pics.

This year I'd like to greet the Trickers as Helen Mirren but no one on my block will get it. Kind of like 2008 when I was Sarah Palin and all but one of the adult neighbors thought I was Arianna Huffington. I even did brown hair with bangs and glasses.

Then there was the Mad Men Halloween. I wore my mother's 60's vintage pink and silver brocade ensemble. Not a soul even came close. Can't blame them, no cigarettes and not enough "big hair."

Have a wonderful Halloween!

  1. Well evidently you and Natasha could just go as beautiful women and be done with it;).

    1. You're very sweet, thank you! Truthfully, that pic is 4 years old and I've gained a lot more than wrinkles in the meantime.

  2. So many customers I ran out of candy. The best was a toddler cowardly lion. I had removed the storm window in the front door for ease of dispensing the loot. The lion reached her paw in to touch me: adorable!

    I want you to know that my husband considers Helen Mirren one of the sexiest women alive. Forewarned is forearmed, Linda, that's all I'm saying!!

  4. Looking gorgeous, Linda!!!! I'll be knocking soon ;-) xoxo

  5. Did you know she just became the face of L'oreal (in unphotoshopped glory)? She's my new favourite person. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!


Please do. I love to know what you think!
