Welcome back to another Halloween-esque post to celebrate the month! 🎃 I want to show you my witchy new blouse that’s just perfect for this time of year!
This was one of those tops that I took a real chance on. It was very unusual, which caught my attention when I found it on eBay. And with a click of the mouse, I ordered it – the future unknown. Would it look right on me? Fit right? It’s completely sheer and spattered with shimmer and puffy sleeves, so I didn’t know what to expect!
AND IT DIDN’T DISAPPOINT, FOLKS…
I LOVE IT. It’s fun, flashy, and interesting. The bell sleeves are my favorite detail. 😀 Isn’t it so witchy and fun?
SCARING MY NEIGHBORS (AND PEOPLE IN GENERAL): A FEEL-GOOD FRIDAY STORY
I have a real knack for accidentally scaring people. I’m very light-footed and quiet in real life, so it’s common for me to walk up to someone without being heard and accidentally give them a scare.
Me: “Nice day out…”
Person: *jumps out of their skin*
Adults, small children… (I especially scare Mormon children, it turns out. Most people I know are surprised to find out I’ve gone to a Mormon church for 3 years. I randomly went one day and just…sort of kept going for 3 years and counting. I intertwine a lot of different spiritual beliefs into my personal faith, so I’m spiritually a mix of things, but it’s nice to have a place to hear a good message, even if I don’t always agree with everything, ya know?
But yeah, the Mormon kids are scared of me. It’s understandable, since I wear a lot of makeup, unusual outfits and I have huge hair, and they’re probably just not used to seeing that. And now my neighbors can be added to the list.
I was out front taking these photos, and I was bent down for a moment, out of sight. Then some people from the neighborhood walked by with their dog, and I stood up quickly. Now, I didn’t do that on purpose; it just sort of happened that way by accident, which is generally how it goes.
“Hi!” I said cheerily.
*traumatized expressions* “Oh my GOD you scared the ***** out of me!” one of them exclaimed.
My work here is done…
🎃 HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN (month) EVERYONE! 🎃
