Happy "Dia de los Muertos"!
Hello, friends! Today is Day of the Dead, a special day to remember our loved ones that are no longer with us. It's not intended to be a sad day though, but a festive day, a celebration in their memory. Ironically enough, I have been selected to show for Jury Duty at the Courthouse today. Not how I wanted to spend this special day....*sigh*.
I hope everyone had a fun Halloween! My boyfriend, Dave, and I had a great day, running around as a Luchador (Mexican wrestler) and La Catrina (a popular Day of the Dead lady figure). Dave had it easy, he merely had to throw on a mask and tux. I spent a couple hours with extremely frustrating face makeup...I have a new found respect for makeup artists! Our bathroom looked like a paintball fight had occurred. It was worth it though, Catrina was a wicked fun costume!
Later that evening, we stayed in and passed out 8 bags of candy to about 200+ kiddos. We carved a pumpkin, watched "Night of the Living Dead", and had Chinese food delivered. A perfect day!
