Friend Making Monday and I'm freeeeeeee

I have to say that I may be the only person who was looking forward to this Monday, while I love my Parents to no end 6+ weeks with them in our home was just.too.much.
I was ready to have my life and home back, not doing 11,000 appointments, and yes I'm going to say NO MORE SHOPPING with the Mom-ster...the lady can wear Paris Hilton out....Oh, that gives me an Idea *wink*

Did I mentioned that we had to get up at 2:30am to drive 4 hrs because my Mom-ster refused to take a layover flight, so we had to drive to NJ so she could have a direct flight? did I mention 4hrs drive with her in the car? Did I?

Any whooooooo, here is to another Friend Makin' Monday!!!!

FMM: What’s your favorite holiday? And why?

My Favorite Holiday is Halloween and everything that comes with the Fall. I love the dressing up and getting in the spirit of Halloween, researching stories about it or just watching documentaries, the collecting of candy, the movies, the tales, going to haunted houses, haunted hayrides, etc. The Haunted Mansion was also My favorite ride at Disney :)
I'm a fall gal, I was born in the fall and coming to live in America this was a tradition we never had growing up back home. I love watching silly movies like "Hocus Pocus", "Haunted Mansion", "Halloween", "Ghost Ship", "Harry Potter"-Why not?, etc, but even the Gory ones I love :)

I'm one of those already planning for apple & Pumpkin picking, seeing what haunted attractions are in our area, getting in to costumes, decorating like Halloween puked all over our place, collecting the Haunted Village and seeing what new items are brought each year. The fall drinks {salted caramel chocolate? yes, thank you} the baking, the candles, I love it all!

Strolling to the aisle of Michael's this time of year brings joy to my heart. My Family no longer gets together for fall/Thanksgiving so we pretty much dedicate ourselves to do Halloween in our place or with the Hubs Family. We either have a Scary Movie Marathon with some friends,we go trick or treating with the kiddos, etc...of course the Hubs family had planned a few Parties in The Pocono's, PA that we loved, we all got dressed up, when to Haunted Mansion's together, then sat by the fire and told scary stories, I hope they do it again this year. Over all we go a lot more to NYC in the fall, and believe me, even though NYC @ Christmas is beautiful, there is nothing like it in the fall.

So what is your favorite? C'mom tell us, don't be shy.

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble
Double, double toil and trouble
Something wicked this way comes

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes

Hi from FMM - I love Halloween, too. It's so fun to wear costumes and decorate for the fall/harvest season. One of these autumn seasons I'm going to do my best to visit New England so I can see the leaves.

You're a good daughter, and I'm sure your mom appreciates all that you did!!

Sorry to say Bella that she didn't even thank me once for all that had to be done while she was sad but I'm use to it by now.

So glad to see so many of you love Halloween!!!!
