Spooktacular! I Got Tagged - Your Turn!

Woohoooo I got tagged by Michelle at Lacquer or Leave Her! to do a Spooktacular blog post; I'm guessing it's like You've Been Booed but for bloggers! How fun!! Thanks for tagging me, Michelle!! :-)

Ok, here we go: 

1) Do you still Trick or Treat? 

Nope. I've actually never been Trick or Treating myself when I was little, we didn't celebrate Halloween. Up until my daughter was old enough to have fun with it, I had some really bad experiences with Halloween when people have taken it too far.  

2) Do you like to go to haunted attractions?

Um, no, I'm a big 'fraidy cat and don't like haunted attractions. Which is odd, because my best friend LOVES to be scared. Needless to say, we don't do the Halloween thing together ;-)

3) Favorite Halloween treat you look forward to getting?

I like candy corn, but my favorites are the exotic caramel apples that the gourmet stores around here do during fall/Halloween.

4) Favorite Halloween Movie?

Hmm...probably the closest actual Halloween movie would be Practical Magic. 

5) Favorite scary movie?

Hands down, Mindhunters; fabulous psych thriller.

6) Favorite costume as a child?

Didn't have any costumes! 

7) A costume you would like to dress up as if you could go back to your childhood?

A vampire

8) Do you decorate your house for Halloween?

We do some decorations, but usually fun, silly ones as my daughter can be a little sensitive about real scary things. 

9) Do you have a festive background for your phone or computer?

I do actually, on my phone!! For someone who's not all into Halloween, I'm on top of it!! lol

10) What are your plans for this Halloween night?

I anticipate that I'll be taking my daughter Trick or Treating - hopefully not in the rain :-)

11) If you have a pet, what would you like to dress it up as? (If you don't, you can say your brother or sister or other family member)

I have a dog, but she's old and doesn't take kindly to being dressed up, although my daughter has been BEGGING me to let her dress her up. I MAY relent, but it's definitely going to have to depend on the costume. 

12) What is your least favorite sweets you would never want to receive when you go Trick or Treating?

Hmmmmm, I don't think there is such a thing?!?!? Just wait, I'll have to amend this post after Halloween after we find some unholy, sorry excuse for a sweet in my daughters bag. lol

13) Favorite Halloween decoration?

I like the goofy skeleton vinyl and jelly clings we find at the dollar store - I'm a cheap scare. lol

14) Favorite Halloween song?

THRILLER!! I'm totally old school music lover, and it's M.J...who can compare?!?!

15) Favorite Halloween makeup look (post a picture if you can) 

I really like Sugar Skulls, if I had the chance, I would want this: 

While mine wasn't as exciting as Michelle's, it was a lot of fun to do a Spooktacular post.
I'm going to carry on the general tag, whomever wants to play is welcome, and here are a few specific tags: 

Hope you all have fun with it like I did! Don't forget to leave me your blog post link so I can check out your Spooktacular too!! :-) 


  1. I always wanted to do the sugar skull look but I am afraid to go all out :S
