tuesday ten ~ halloween ♥

this week's tuesday ten is dedicated to "all hallows evening". i think this is such a fun holiday because i love...

1 ~ the costumes. this year i am going to be an indian (the feather kind) and the mister is going to be a cowboy. it's the first year we are dressing as a pair. :)

2 ~ the tricks. best time of year to tee pee the neighbors. i really want to make this happen in LA. i have NEVER seen a tree out here covered in toilet paper. what a shame! (p.s. this photo creeps me out!)

3 ~ the treats. i love, love, love, love candy. reese's peanut butter cups are my favorite, snickers, and milky ways follow.

4 ~ the pumpkins. specifically for me ~ i ♥ white pumpkins! i am attempting my own versions of the below this week. stay tuned...

5 ~ the stories. i hate horror movies where people are tortured, but i love a good scary story. this really only applies to halloween. the rest of the year... i'd rather not think about the monsters under my bed. 

6 ~ the parties. last year i went to the playboy mansion with friends, had a blast. this year i am skipping out on hef and the mister, and i are cruising down to san diego to hang out with some amazing and crazy friends. can't wait!

7 ~ the weather. october weather is lovely. back home it was the best time of fall when the trees are so beautiful... in california it's usually a little rainy (which i like) and a good chill temperature. can't beat it. 

8 ~ the hayrides. always fun to take a ride with friends. back home near the cornfields it was pretty easy to get spooked, but that could be because the children of the corn movies totally give me the heebie jeebies.

9 ~ the games. bobbing for apples is kind of gross when you think about it, but it's fun to watch others get all germy and wet. if i wasn't allergic to apples... i might even participate. :)

10 ~ the decor. one day when we get our own house, i can't wait to be able to decorate like this! until then i lust after other people's decor pics.

what's your favorite part of halloween?? do you have any fun costumes or plans?

Love that stairway!! So cute!

And that picture with the girl on the bed and those spooky hairy arms coming out from underneath... is super creapy!!

I wish I was in California with my family for fall and winter because here in Washington it's freezing! I already had to pull out my huge coat yesterday! I love the weather in Cali...much more mild but still fallish (: I can't wait to see your white pumpkins

yay halloween! i agree with all your reasons for loving it - what other day can you dress up totally crazy, eat tons of candy, and make friends with all sorts of strangers everywhere you go?! this is my first halloween in l.a. {we just moved from san francisco} so i'm not sure what we're doing yet. but i'll be sure to look for some toilet-paper covered palm trees. :)

What wonderful autumn goodies! John and I have only gotten a couples costume together once, and it's still my favorite-I made him and a few of his guy buds leather briefs and red capes, and myself a greek inspired gown, and we went as the characters from 300!

I love everything about Halloween.. especially the bonfires!

My boyfriend and I are going to be Mary Poppins and the chimney sweep! I can't wait!

Aww, So cute you guys are going to have a couple costume. Great post!

We're total jammers and don't really get into Halloween in terms of dressing up and stuff (I know I know). I can't believe you got to go to the Playboy Mansion last year - I bet that was an eyefull! ha!

Your costume idea sounds great - totally carry a little bag full of reese's peanut butter cups. Those are my faves, too :)

Your costumes sound adorable! Such a great list.
