Embarrassing Halloween memories

Halloween is tomorrow and although I love to see everyone else's costume, I am just not creative enough to come up with something on my own. I tried to go to the store today to buy one, but all I found was rows and rows of "sexy" costumes..nurses, pirates, witches...you name it, they had it. And all for 70 bucks too. I'd rather get a pair of sweats from target and go as a snowman and be warm lol.

As I was walking through the store though, I saw a costume that I actually wore as a child and my face turned red with embarrassment just remembering. You see, growing up we weren't allowed to celebrate Halloween. But we could go to the fall festival at church. We still got candy and bobbed for apples...but no ghosts, witches, devil costumes, etc were allowed.

Somehow though at around age 10 I found a child-size french maid costume at Roses and just had to be that. So I went as a french maid TO CHURCH! And my mother let me! At the time, I just thought it was a cute little maid costume but now I can only imagine what the preacher thought when I strolled in with my face covered in makeup...bright blush...red lips...and my feather duster in hand. Oh the embarrassment.

Needless to say, I left the store pretty quickly after seeing that costume. I'm thinking if I ever dress up again, maybe I should go as a nun to redeem myself?
