It's Halloweekend!!!

A friend did this pumpkin and it's just too neat not to share. It took her a lot of time to do and required  a lot of rhinestones---approximately 1500!!!!

My best friend is a breast cancer survivor. While cancer is no joking matter, when you have been diagnosed with it, sometimes you have to joke a little. She had hers first and then I was diagnosed with cancer "down there". We had to laugh at the time that we do everything together and that with her having top and me bottom that we're covered! Thankfully we have both had clear checkups since!

I really enjoy candy Halloween and normally I have a costume all planned and places to go for the entire Halloweekend. We have plenty of options for parties, but things have been hectic that I have no idea what we will be doing. (Things are in a state of flux because of some recent changes at the j-o-b. It's just a weird and stressful time, but it will pass.)

Anyway, if I end up needing a costume, I guess I'll dig something out of the attic. I am kicking myself because there was this full zip up chicken costume (white fuzzy, with hood, wings and feet!) that was marked down to 40 - which sounds like a lot, but wasn't compared to full price - and to add insult to injury there were two. Man, do I wish I had those. They were hilarious!

PS - thanks for the comments on ideas for my 6-year post and I'll cover what you suggested Tessie Rose and Manda Panda. Cat - I owe you a reply! : )

Oh gosh - that is the coolest pumpkin. I wish she had done it with a plastic pumpkin underneath so she could keep it forever! Happy Halloween lovey dove!

The chicken costumes would've been hilarious!!!

Love that pumpkin! My best friend's mother died of breast cancer. We did the 3 Day in her honor. I wonder if I could find something like this to buy for her?
