I thought I had done everything....

When one gets to a certain milestone birthday (49 and I'm sticking to that!) you think you've pretty much done it all!  From skydiving to going across the country and everything in between.

Then you get the invitation.
To a Halloween party. 
It's on one of my few nights off, with people I actually like....so I said "Cool, I'll be there".

If you know me well at all, you'll know this is highly unusual and suspect activity for me!
I prefer nights at home with my babies and a book or creating something for my shop or going to auctions.
I actually have just realized I've NEVER been to a Halloween party!  How odd is that?

So, no I'm not going to dress up in costume...really????...what would I be???...a fluffy, fifty (ish) Little Bo Beep?  Uh....no.

What I have been considering wearing (gotta wear something decent, might be a cute man there!)

Sexy and simple, vamp from the 50's attire.

  I can SAY I'm in costume, still be comfy and not look completely like an idiot in a rabbit outfit.
