Happy Halloween!!

Good Morning and Happy Halloween! As I'm writing this my Halloween has sadly wrapped :( We don't get trick or treaters at our house, and I've got gym time this evening, but we did have a fun one over at the Noel casa!

Saturday night, we attended the First Annual Halloween Party of a friend's and boy oh boy did we have fun. There was lots of food, dancing, music, raunchy adult costumes, raunchy adult conversation, and jello shots galore! We ended up staying out until about 2:30am and that is LATE for me. Our group of five rode together out to the party, meeting at our house as it's centrally located for everyone. We had ourselves a little primpin partay! Ie, help each other fix our hair, pre-game, and impromptu photo shoot!

Those of you on Instragram (@ellenoelfitness) know I went as a flapper! I used this Pin from pinterest to style from hair, it took both Madeline and I to roll up and pin each curl which took about 45 minutes. She's such a great friend to me! It held up fantastically. I still had curls the next morning!

Then It was Photo Shoot Time!

We found these Mustache drink markers at the seasonal Halloween Store

After we'd had a few they were the funniest thing we'd EVER seen

We made Scare Crow Crunch - Thanks again Pinterest!

This was such a FUN night. Halloween as an adult is ten times better than it was as a kid. It's one of my favorite holidays anytime I get to dance my face off and shoot jello, it's a great day!

Next on the Halloween stop was Monster Dash, which I told ya'll about yesterday!

Princess Consuela Banana Hammock found this awesome action shot on their website yesterday. She looks like a gazelle, me, ugh, those are some white legs! Must. Get. Spray. Tan!

and concluding my Halloween fun- it's off to work I go!

I feel a teensy bit bad for saying this, but the next big upcoming event I'm super excited about is Christmas. (Sorry Thanksgiving!) I am a Christmas girl to the core. True confessions- I've already added in Michael Buble and Justin Beiber Christmas albums into my daily listening. I love everything about this time of year. The music, the decorations, the warm fuzzy feelings coupled with being with family and friends, giving gifts, receiving gifts, awkward office get togethers, and getting uber excited to receive Christmas cards in the mail! Oh Christmas I love thee, how appropriate that I married a Noel huh!?

Now the countdown begins- how long can I wait to put up my Christmas tree? Three years in a row now, I haven't made it to Thanksgiving before bringing out the tinsel, my track record ain't good!
