I Caved. And Have the Candy Coma to Prove It.

I love Halloween.
My Dad loves it even more.
I'm proud to say we've always had
the best Halloween decorations on the block.
Some may think them over the top,
what with the fog machines,
strobe lights and scary music
piped through the open windows,
but nonetheless, our house always looked
I love candy.
I've been a candy-holic since being introduced to the stuff in grade school.
You know, I grew up in a house where
I wasn't allowed candy, sugary cereal, bubblegum, etc.
But enter grade school?
And kid's birthday parties? And funfetti cupcakes?
I was hooked.
This is our first Halloween in a real house,
which means real trick-or-treaters,
which means we obviously needed to stock up on lot's of candy.
Because you know, I'll be damned if we were going to be
that house
that gives out something
like toothbrushes or bags of pretzels.

Hubs and I must've come home with 10lbs. of candy.
And a really great tub to dump it all in.
Which is where the candy has been sitting,
in bags, since we brought it home over three weeks ago.
And I've been so good.
That is, until last night...
I caved.
The temptation was just too great.
And that mini Twix
And that York Peppermint Patty
And that mini Snickers
And that second mini Snickers
was just too damn good.


  1. I love Halloween candy as well! In fact, we asked one of our neighbors if we could borrow one of their children so my husband and I could go trick or treating!

  2. Haha...that's too funny! That's why I wait until literally Halloween DAY before I go purchase my candy to hand out. Otherwise, I will seriously eat every last piece of it!! :)

  3. haha you're giving me a craving! and funfetti cupcakes... omg yuuum. it's ok to indulge every once and a while...just make sure you leave some for the kids ;) have a great day!

  4. And this is the exact reason why my bags of candy are still at the store...until Halloween :) I can't believe you were able to make it 3 weeks :) Impressive!

  5. That damm mini Twix got you too??? HA!

  6. haha!! i love anything sour or liquorice...i can be good for weeks but once it's open, it got to be cleaned!
    have you left any for the actual kids of the neighborhood?

  7. This picture makes me want an Almond Joy something fierce!

  8. haha I haven't gone to get my candy yet, and its for that very reason! I have no will-power. :(

  9. I have always loved candy! The funny thing is, my dad started decorating for Halloween as well, but it wasn't until we all moved out of the house! Gotta love light up eyeballs that wrap around the bottom of a tree.

  10. I'm impressed that you could hold out that long! I would have been all over that candy on the way home from the store!

  11. I think your house sounds AAAAAAAmazing... and just the mention of funfetti cupcakes puts me in a great mood!!

  12. ummmmmmm I have stayed away so far bc I have a wedding on Saturday, but after that, watch out, hahah xxoo

  13. I can't wait until we have a house with real trick-or-treaters!!

  14. I am obsessed with Halloween candy as well - I will seriously eat the entire bag!!

    What I've started doing is buying candy with nuts in it, since I'm allergic, then I CANNOT eat any before we give it out on Halloween night!!

  15. I'm a candy junkie too! I think from being denied the stuff it made the desire stronger as an adult when NO ONE is telling me what to do :) HAHA

  16. Halloween candy is so hard to resist! I have a bucket of it sitting in my office right now! It's torture!

  17. I can't wait to own a house instead of living in an apt. so that I can get real trick-or-treaters. Have fun!

  18. love it! i too am a candy-holic. my mom, brothers and i love halloween too - and we always decked our house out in gory gothic splendor.

  19. November 1 is my favorite day (after Christmas)...candy 50% off!!!!
