Top Ten Things I'll Be Hanging With on Halloween

This post is part of my blogtober celebration, my month-long blog party about all things creepy and Halloween-y! Don't forget I've got a ton of giveaways going on!

I'm very sporadic in my participation in weekly memes, but this one fit perfectly! Of course, I am sort of changing/merging the topics. The Broke and The Bookish, the host, have chosen books to get in the creepy mood or characters you'd dress up as. 
For my Top Ten, I'm going to pick 10 things you can find me curled up with on Halloween because, let's face it, I'd rather spend the evening in my onesie at home on the couch than in a skimpy outfit somewhere outside. 

1. Fox Onesie — If you all know me at all (meaning I literally tweet about this all the time), I talk nonstop about how much I love my onesie. I have a basic one that is excellent, but recently I've really been loving foxes, and I would love to put this on to pretend I dressed up, but really I'd be in pajamas.

2. Hocus Pocus — You can't have Halloween without this movie. Really. Needs no explanation.

 3. Candy Corn — I'm one of the people that falls in the camp of absolutely loving and will eat to the point of sickness. Bring it on!

4. Anything cinnamon — I put it in all my tea and cider this time of year. It makes everything better. Plus cinnamon sticks are just super fun-looking.

5. Apple Cider — It's the BEST drink. Move over pumpkin spice latte lovers (seriously, how much can you make pumpkin-flavored things and not be sick of it? Just kidding, I just don't like pumpkin stuff. Ew). YUMMM.

6. Harry Potter Marathon — It's that time of year when I watch the series from beginning to end. Okay, I haven't done that recently, but I ALWAYS watch the first movie. I think because of the troll scene and how magical the first one is, I have always enjoyed watching it at Halloween time.

7. Halloweentown — Speaking of Halloween time, the Disney Channel has the best movies, hands down. This is another classic that I don't miss during October.

8. And Then There Were None — I just talked about how much I love Agatha Christie, but I have actually never read this one. Somehow it always missed my reading pile, and I just purchased it, so I've got it all ready to go for a lovely night in.

9. The Witches — This is a childhood favorite, and I adore Roald Dahl so much. I also just acquired a copy of this, so I'm all ready for a nice binge-read.

 10. Yarn! — Finally, I will be working on an awesome blanket I've been crocheting. I just finished up a hat too, so I'll be making a pompom to put on top the hat! Yay for old-lady habits!

What do you guys think? Do these look like things you'll be doing on Halloween, or do you go outside and interact with people?!


  1. I love your take on the top ten, That's a nice list of things to be hangin' with on Halloween. Happy Halloween! kelley—the road goes ever ever on

    1. Thanks so much! I just felt like, "Let's be real... I'm not leaving the house on a cold Friday night... even if it is Halloween..." LOL. :)

  2. I love that you changed up the topic a little bit! These are some great choices. Also, I NEED that onesie!!
    My TTT

    1. I know right! It looks SO COZY! All I want to do is pretend to be a fox and hideout in my basement on Halloween!

  3. I agree, you can't have Halloween without Hocus Pocus. You just can't. The Dahl book The Witches scared me so bad at first when I was a kid.

    My Top Ten

    1. The Witches terrified me too! But for some reason, I still loved it. I think because the BFG was my first read from him, and then I decided whoever wrote that must be awesome, so The Witches shouldn't be that scary. Not great logic from my 7-year-old self, but it worked! :)
