I love going to Halloween parties where costumes for the adults are mandatory, as it forces people who normally wouldn’t dress up to do something a little out of their comfort zone –> pointing to Scott
Thank goodness we had party on Saturday night, as this year, I get to spend Halloween on a plane to Dallas, Texas. Well, other than being a little bummed I get to miss out on the fun of scaring little kids, I’m crazy excited about this trip. I’m headed to singer/songwriter Jewel’s ranch in Texas, where along with wedding designer, David Tutera, will be filming a series of short videos.
No, we won’t be singing – THANK GOODNESS – Jewel and I will be in the kitchen chatting about cooking for the Holidays, and David will be giving pointers on decorating. We’re filming this at Jewel’s house. I’m still pinching myself. In fact, I’m bringing along my girlfriend, Wendy, as a chaperone to ensure that I don’t make a fool outta myself
Well, back to Saturday night – Scott and I decided to dress as zombies and moan “BRAAIIINZZZZZ” all night long. We did our own makeup after watching a few YouTube videos on How to Look LIke Zombies and stuck on these fun special effects and fake skin ‘n blood (messy affair).
The problem with looking like this:
….is that we forgot to tell Coco, our little 8-month old dog, all about Halloween and that we were going to dress as zombies.
While we were doing our makeup, Coco was asleep in our room. We were just about to leave for the party when Coco woke up to two strange, dead, flesh-eating people.
