Happy Halloween!


Can I make a bad Halloween memory into something good? I sure hope so!

While I've always loved Halloween, I had many years when I despised my costume. I wanted to be a princess or some other girly type costume, but my father went to get the costume for me. He came home with an H.R. Pufnstuf costume. I was not amused and I was not cute. And I had to wear the costume for several years. *sigh*

The picture above is from a yard in the neighborhood. I thought it was adorable, so I took a shot with my trusty Canon PowerShot.

Now that I've recalled that painful memory, I'm entering this post into a contest over at SITS Girls, which stands for The Secret to Success is Support.

They are having a Halloween Giveaway and the coveted prize is a Canon EOS Rebel T2i. It's time for a camera upgrade. I so want this camera! Wish me luck!

I love it (well, I don't like that your dad got your costumes)! This was such a fun blog to think about. I love the SITS girls! Thanks for sharing.

I was going to keep my fingers crossed for you to win, but I need that camera and plan on entering the contest, too! Maybe we can share...? Never let Dads pick out costumes... that's a cardinal rule... what was your Mother thinking...

Happy Halloween, Anali! Halloween is not a big deal here either, so sometimes I miss the "real" Halloween of back home... though it really is just a a commercial, media & marketing driven machine now isn't it?! LOL! The real holiday is a far cry from our ancient ancestors had it. That is a FAB camera...*swoon*.... Good luck on the win! Happy Days ((HUGS))

sili - Thanks for the visit!

sharlene - It seems that we're in agreement that this costume was NOT a hit!

ck - Oh yes I was! So sad. But I'm over it. I even got a blog post out of it! ; )

el - I hope you had a Happy Halloween too! Unfortunately, I did not win the camera.

tracy - I didn't win the camera, so now I have to figure out how to get it. It sure is a beauty! Happy day to you! ; )
