50 IS NOT OLD | HALLOWEEN T-SHIRT FOR WOMEN | FASHION OVER 40 Halloween is one of the favorite holidays in the Stephen’s household. My daughter and son were both born in October, so we had a couple of years where we had Halloween birthday parties. One year I decided to go all out, and I created a graveyard in the front yard. I made tombstones out of plywood, and I painted them and put names on them complete with little mounds of dirt and flowers. The kids in the neighborhood loved the graves, and they would come and have their pictures taken as they laid in the grass in front of a tombstone.

We blacked out the windows so that it was pitch black inside when they walked inside. The first thing that they came upon was my brother-in-law dressed as Dracula in a wooden casket that we had made. As each child walked past him, he would sit up and show them his teeth. Then, they came to my 90-year-old grandmother, who dressed as a witch. She had a wonderful cackle, and she was sitting beside a cauldron that had dry ice inside it, so the fog was throughout the room. We had a table full of gross food such as eyes and brains, and we had a tin cake cover in the middle of the table. Once the child was at the table, I would mention that we had a birthday cake, and then I would pick up the cake cover. We cut a hole in the plywood table, and my sister-in-law was under the table with her head on the cake platter. She was all made up in makeup to look like the un-dead, and when I picked up the cover, she let out a blood-curdling scream. We might have had a few children refuse to go inside the room, and we might have had a few children leave the room in tears. mmmmmwwwwahahahahahaha
50 IS NOT OLD | HALLOWEEN T-SHIRT FOR WOMEN | FASHION OVER 40 I found this cute pumpkin shirt at Walmart when I went there to pick up a couple of Halloween pillows for the front porch. As soon as I saw the lashes on the pumpkin, I knew that it was coming home with me. Come on; this is the peRFect shirt for me. Lol!!! I am wearing a size large in the shirt, and it is snug. So, if you want it to be looser, or if you are in-between sizes, then I recommend sizing up. I can’t find the shirt online; there are a thousand shirts listed, so try your local store. Also, look for these super cute pillows that I bought while you are there. Here are a couple of other suggestions if the one I am wearing is not your cup of tea. Walmart has a lot of cute Halloween supplies. Here is the link to the Halloween shop.

50 IS NOT OLD | HALLOWEEN T-SHIRT FOR WOMEN | FASHION OVER 40 I can’t remember where I bought these spiders’ earrings. I have rings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. for Halloween. I will advise that you try and buy jewelry that looks obviously fake unless you want someone smacking the crap out of you trying to kill the spider that is on your neck. Lol!

50 IS NOT OLD | HALLOWEEN T-SHIRT FOR WOMEN | FASHION OVER 40 While I was in Nashville, I did a LOT of walking. I decided to buy some shoes that would be comfortable for me as I walked around the convention hall. We went to the Green Hills Mall, and I bought these shoes that everyone was shocked at me for buying. No one thought that they “looked” like me. My daughter made fun of me the entire time, but I thought they were super cute. Because they are black, you can see the details, so I am going to attach a better photo for you to see. These are by VANELi, and they are very padded for comfort. I am wearing my normal size 9. Here is a link to the shoes.
50 IS NOT OLD | HALLOWEEN T-SHIRT FOR WOMEN | FASHION OVER 40 I did it!!! I held the ZOOM business opportunity call last night. I got outside my comfort zone, and I introduced several ladies to Rodan + Fields. It is not easy to go out on a limb, but that is where all the good fruit grows. Before the call, I was doing some power poses to feel more at ease, and my daughter took a picture. 50 IS NOT OLD | HALLOWEEN T-SHIRT FOR WOMEN | FASHION OVER 40 V for victory!!! The victory was in doing the action, not in the results. Do yourself a favor, and climb out on the limb…it is so sweet out there.

    My son and daughter are also born in October, being 12 months and 12 days apart. Starting when they were little, we had one Halloween birthday party for both of them that went from a small house costume party with a small jungle gym in the living room, halloween carnival style games and halloween goody bags to a hotel conference room party with catered food, custom monster cakes, fog machine, halloween music and blow-up halloween decorations. Years ago, right before we moved out of state during the month of June, we packed up our van with 5 large tubs of all of our accumulated halloween decorations and quietly placed them on the porch of a home whose owners went all out for halloween, thinking they would appreciate the donation. For years, they allowed trick or treaters to wander through their cemetery themed yard with a Frankenstein-type laboratory and costumed people jumping out of bushes. Imagine our surprise when we found out after we moved that they also moved, but prior to us dropping off all of our halloween tubs!

    I always made sure my kids got to go trick-or-treating. Once I bought witch hats with attached gray hair for my supervisor & me to wear at work. Cracked people up. (Got a really strange look from the boss!) And I made a “Broom Parking” sign for work. But I really don’t like Halloween. Love pumpkins though. And I really LOVE your shirt…and the “Yes, I can drive stick” shirt!

    Your description of your sister in law and her head through the table reminded of the time when my BF’s daughter Rachel was about 8 or 9 and insisted on visiting a haunted house with the adults. It was put on by the Lions’ Club, and the guy that had HIS head through the table was a friend of ours. My friend’s daughter hadn’t really been scared until we got to that room and while going through, our friend in the table said “Hello Rachel” in a spooky voice. She screamed, “He KNOWS my name!!!” and practically crawled up the front of her dad to get away.
