My Worst Halloween Costume EVER

Halloween is tomorrow and as much as I love what this holiday revolves around... candy...I've never been into it that much. Growing up we didn't celebrate it at all. Instead, we went 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.

I'll never be able to figure out 1. why companies make sexy costumes for kids and 2. why my mother let me go like that. Probably so we could have this story to laugh about 20 years later :)
