Halloween it up!

I am a little bit overwhelmed with the Halloweeness in my life.

False.

I am a little overwhelmed with wondering how I can blog about all the Halloweeness in my life.

But here goes nothing.

I work for a fabulous company. Have I ever mentioned that before?

I love my clients. I love my co-workers. And I love the things we do to help celebrate life and have fun!

We celebrated Halloween a couple days early.

With a carnival.

A dance!

A cupcake contest!

AND a pie eating contest!

As tradition goes, I judge the cupcakes {by appearance and taste}. I think it's because we all know I would never be capable of entering the contest. :) It's a tough job, but someone has got to do it. 

Some of my co-workers are pretty dern creative!


Witch's Brew


Eyeballs!


Adorable Owls


Creepy Beetles

And best of show ...


Can.you.believe.it?

I had to taste-test about 13 different cupcakes. Needless to say, I am done with a cupcakes for a little bit. :)

My co-workers also are creative with their costumes.


Mindy, the 50's poodle skirt girl with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Raphael. And then with a flapper. :)


I love Lucy, a 4th quarter USU football player zombie and a witch. :)

The next one needs a little explanation.

A behavioral strategy I have developed for some of our clients involves what we call "emotion cards". We use these cards to discuss what is appropriate to do when feeling a certain emotion and what isn't. For example, when feeling upset it is appropriate to ask for a break, but it is never appropriate to hit someone.

These three decided to dress up as my emotion cards. :)


Unexpected, Frustrated and Mean.

Notice the eyebrows they drew on themselves and how they match the eyebrows on the emotion card. :) Love.it.

Then came the highlight of the day.

I had signed up for the pie eating contest, just to beat one co-worker in particular. I did not care if I came in second to last, as long as I beat said co-worker. 

I had never been in any kind of eating contest before {shocking, I know}. So imagine my surprise when I made the finals!


And then, NBD ...

I won it all.


And with the title came 20 dollah.

How perfectly, wonderfully surprising. :)

P.s. My day ended with the first Aggie basketball game of the season!

It was such a wonderful day.
{I only wish I could have taken photos of my clients and shared them.}

 And I still have lots of Halloweeness blogging to go! 

It shall be coming soon, so please contain your excitement.

What are YOU dressing up as for Halloween?

You. Are. The. Coolest. Person. I. Know. I love Halloween! You just moved up a step in my book for winning the pie eating contest (and yes, you were already at the top. You are now over the top!)
