The girl & the good

Things are looking spruced up and renamed and all that jazz. How do you like the new blog? I hope you love it, because I most certainly do! Part of me wanted to wait until November 1st to debut it all, but heck. Halloween is as good a time as any, right?

Oh and about that business…HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We’re not fun and have no costumes this year. Again. We always have the best of creative intentions and sit back in August thinking of the costumes we could create and POOF! It’s October 31st and we’ve got nothing. Nada. Oh and neither of our dogs fit the one pumpkin costume we got for Nola a few years ago, so the entire Hill clan is boring another year in a row. The first year here in Charlotte, we were so excited to be living in the suburbs and to finally have the chance to hand out candy to those little ones all dressed up in their Halloween best and, well, we got three trick-or-treaters. Three. It was sad. Last year we didn’t even buy candy, so I felt terrible when ONE trick-or-treater rang our doorbell. Yep, we were THOSE people. The ones who kept their light off and didn’t answer. It’s not who I am you guys, really! I just know that if I bought a bag of 500 pieces of candy, I would have eaten 490 pieces because that one kid would have gotten ten and I can’t be left alone with a bowl full of sugar. I just can’t.

This year, we surrender. We’re heading to a friend’s house where there will be a cute baby to play with, friends to hang out with and hopefully tons of adorable trick-or-treaters. I am determined to not feel so bah-humbug about it this year.

Maybe it won’t really feel like Halloween until we have kids? Oh well. If you’re dressing up, leave me a link to your costume. I want to see! And Happy Halloween! Oh and happy new blog!

You can still find all of my old posts from Katy Loves in the archives. All of my social media names have changed, but if you followed me there before it’ll all change without you having to refollow. As will Blog Lovin’ and the RSS feeds, so no worries there(fingers crossed). Thank you for hanging in there with me, I’m so glad to be back!
