Ghosts of Halloweens Past

Alex and I regularly dress up for any occasion that may present itself, sometimes we just do it for fun.  For the past 3 years we have dressed as Batman and Robin for Halloween.  We’ve made it a tradition to dress as the crime fighting duo a week before Halloween in Portland because we always spend the designated Halloween party night in Hallowell, Maine with his extended family.

Here are a few pics of the past few years:





And here are our costumes for the party nights:

Here we are as young trick-or-treaters:


And just for fun, here are a few of our other costumes from the years:

Another fun part of Halloween is that Alex’s birthday is always the day before, and I always make him a superhero dessert.

Happy Birthday, Hunny!

Have a happy and safe Halloween!



Husbands and Collections

Alex and I have owned our home for two months now and he has just moved in.  He needed a little extra time to move out of his apartment of 11 years.  I’m so happy to finally have him here and start our real married life together.  There will be a lot to learn about maintaining a home, but we’re off to a good start.

During the move, Alex had a lot to purge and not purge.  Don’t be surprised when you see us on Hoarders.  Any of our friends would agree, we both like to keep everything.  Not only that, but Alex is a collector of comics and a music enthusiast.  He’s been collecting since he received his first Hulk comic when he was 5.  Notice the massive collection behind him.  That’s only one wall.  When I lived with Alex for 6 months in his bachelor pad, I woke up to the Hulk, Spider-Man, and a vast array of other Marvel characters.  It wasn’t every girl’s dream, but it was a constant reminder of the man I love.  Thankfully though, he has a man cave to hold all of his prized possessions so I can visit when I like.

    Do you have any good collection stories from a significant other or roommate, maybe yourself?

I’d love to hear about it!
