THE TIME HAS COME FOR COLDS AND OVERCOATS

Portland's mornings and nights are starting to get chilly but boy is she still fighting off the clouds and rain.  This is abnormally awesome.  I can only remember a handful of Halloweens where it didn't rain.  I remember being a clown and having the rain melt my cheap white makeup slowly into my mouth.  I remember the time I was a Princess and violently slipped walking down a wet driveway.  I remember having to trick or treat in a mall because no one was stepping foot outside.  I also remember the time I had to dress up in the same clown costume years later but my fake nose wouldn't stay.  It was raining too hard.  I could barely breathe but I thought it was so cool.  It was the only thing new.  Tears ensued.  Each time.

So I digress.  I just want a nice, dry, and really fun Halloween.  I want my nephew to stop by like he does every year and then I want to go see the Blazers play the Lakers.

1.  I get to laugh at the stadium filled with funny and DRY costumes
2.  I get to watch Steve Nash play as a Laker for the first time (still heartbroken over that trade)
3.  I get to cheer as the Blazers win

Oh yeah, somehow within the last few years I developed an affinity for basketball.  I don't know either.

Well, this has been fun.  Off to another class!

    1. I'm pretty excited to start wearing tights, thigh high socks, and jackets again (though I really do prefer hot swimming weather).

  2. You look so gorgeous. I love the deep, warm tones in this outfit and your hair is perfect. The weather in Victoria, BC seems quite similar to Portland right now. Hoping the weather holds out for Halloween! xx
