5 Things I'd Rather Do Than Celebrate Halloween

Excuse my hair. I had been swimming a lot that week. 

Halloween isn't necessarily my holiday of choice. I think it's the whole dressing up thing. I'd like to believe it was my lack of college experience that never instilled a strong desire to dress as a barely there cat woman or a nurse that really just looks she just needs nursing herself if you know what I mean. I knew college would have been good for something. However due to that and my lack of interest in spending ridiculous amounts of money on something I'll never wear more than once (because I never ever do that with regular clothing..wink) I just don't get into it. Which led me to this: "Things I'd rather do than celebrate Halloween". Below are my top five. Let us begin. 

1. Eat Chipotle chips and salsa. Until somebody starts putting this in my trick-or-treat bag, I don't need to knock on every neighbor's door that I wouldn't normally talk to asking for candy. Most of it ends up being tootsie rolls and those just get stuck in my teeth which in turn makes my tongue really tired. Save exhaustion and hand Chipotle out people. 

2. Prank call people. Screw smashing pumpkins. This is where the real fun lies. Plus it's a lot less sticky. Pumpkin guts seem rather dramatic and hard to deal with. 

3. Watch Bridesmaids. I understand that watching movies which will make you poop your pants, hide under your bed, and make you believe that somebody is standing behind you with a knife is really fun and appealing, but no thanks. I prefer peeing my pants out of laughter, sleeping in my bed, and daydreaming about all things rainbows and butterflies. 

4. Make love. Halloween seems so un-lovey to me. Children if you are listening, making love is a lot more fun than not making love. Plus it's a lot more effective in the caloric burn scale than consuming all those disgusting rolls of Smarties. Trust me. You'll know what I am talking about in about twenty years. Make that thirty. Or fifty. Never mind. Abstinence forever youth of America. 

5. Go to a vineyard. Wine > Pumpkins. Amen and amen.  

So there we have it. What five things would you rather do than celebrate Halloween? Tell me by linking up below. I'm off to get dressed up, go trick-or-treating, and eat all of my nieces candy. What? I hate this holiday, they should too. 

ps. While on the subject of talking about things we dislike, lets bring our attention to blogger's spacing problems. Why it assumes I want half of my post centered and the other half not centered is beyond me. I feel like blogger needs candy to make it happy. I mean chipotle. Definitely Chipotle.




  1. Prank calling. Yes!! I forgot how much fun that is!

  2. I really truly love this...especially number four! Bridesmaids and prank calling are the bomb!!!

  3. I thought I wanted to celebrate Halloween this year, but as the holiday rolls around. My painted pumpkin got rained on so all the paint came off, I didn't make enough trick or treat bags, and tomorrow is Halloween and I still haven't had the desire to make our costumes. So this might be my last year participating for awhile. Next year I will be able to say I rather do some of these things then celebrate Halloween!


  4. Yes, with you on all of these. Pretty much anything besides Halloween!

  5. This is great! I'm usually not a Halloween person, but I'm actually dressing up & celebrating this year!


  6. I'm so not a Halloween person. Love the new look! And I'm with you on Chipotle, except I put foil on and go get my free burrito (used to anyway...don't live near one anymore).

  7. I've never had Chipotle, you make me feel like I am missing out on something epic. Halloween isn't my thing either, I might just go out and lose my Chipotle virginity.

  8. you are the best. I am linking up. thank you for such a fun link up :) and also, yes to bridesmaids and yes to no sex :) haha

  9. Oh yes to all the above, except the Chipotle, mostly because I don't know what the Chipotle is, or what it tastes like....I'm not sure, but I don't think we have it here in Australia....which makes me sad because you make it sound so good. Obviously it must be if it's number one on your list!

  10. Yes, but you get a free burrito if you go to Chipotle in costume so....

  11. You could always try to do all 5 things simultaneously..... that could be fun/dangerous/a great blog post ;)

  12. I agree with the wine>pumpkins. I love fall but not all about the dressing up.


  13. I absolutely, 100% couldn't agree more. All of your "rather do's" sound perfect. Have a great day, whatever you decide to do! xoxo.

  14. I don't know how I just now came across your blog! LOVE IT! While I love Halloween normally, I am so over it this year. Totally agree with you on #1 & #5! :)


  15. Thank you for scaring the hell out of me!! I am deathly afraid of clowns Erin! >.< On another note, great idea for a linkup. =D I'm with you on 1, 4, & 5!

  16. #4 PERFECTION!
    Now I just have to convince the hubby - lol.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
