Trick or Treat!!

Okay, no tricks! But we do have some treats for you. Danica Favorite here, and I was going through some old photos from college, and I found a picture of my favorite costume ever. Yup, that's me (and someone else- but I have no idea who it was) dressed as a pig. Throughout high school and college, pigs were my favorite animals. Now I'm more of a chicken lover, thanks to my pet chickens. But I don't think I'll be dressing up as a chicken anytime soon. It's been a long time since I dressed up for Halloween.

How about you? Do you dress up for Halloween? Do you have a favorite costume you've worn over the years?

Now for the treats...
As you know, we've been giving away books on Thursdays, so comment on the post for your chance to win. Here are the details on our Thursday giveaways in case you missed them: http://craftieladiesofromance.blogspot.com/2013/10/announcing-our-october-reader-contest.html

Last week's winner was Jackie Smith!!

And, since I don't yet have a release date for my book, I don't have a book to give away. But don't despair, I've got a special treat for you. If you're entering the giveaway, just let me know which current release from our authors you'd like to win, and I'll make sure you get a copy! This week's winner will also get a book from Lenora Worth, Rhonda Gibson, and Margaret Daley.

  1. Any excuse to dress up is a good one, as far as I'm concerned. The latent actress in me, I guess. Most years I'm one Disney Villain or another. This year my granddaughter is Princess Aurora, so Maleficent it is. :)

  3. Love your pig costume. I honestly can't remember any of my costumes that were particularly outstanding. My kids always remember the time my husband dressed up as a baby--diaper and all.

  4. Super Cute Merrillee, I love that your hubby did that! My pig is the only one I really remember, and that was because I was just looking through photo albums. OH! And one year, my baby was a Pig, so I wore overalls and went as a farmer, carrying my little piggie around. :)

  6. Would love to win any of the new releases. I read all three lines although this year am leaning towards suspense.
    In Australia up until recently we didn't really have Halloween so have never dressed up.
    No idea what I would have dressed up as but as a kid probably a ballerina or princess. Although I had people say I would make a good Alice in Wonderland. Now I could go as a Cricket Fanatic compete with signed top (I have two training shirts of players plus a top I got signed by most of one team last year.)
    love the pic.

  7. Jenny, I am surprised Australia didn't celebrate Halloween. Wasn't that a tradition we got from our English ancestors?

  9. You're welcome Jackie!!

    Jenny, you would be a great Alice in Wonderland. :)

    Pol, we didn't get a lot of store bought costumes either. This year, I expected my little one to want one, but she wanted to go to the second hand store and build her own costume. So she did.

  10. Leann, I guess it was something that didn't come here from England. In the past decade its becoming more popular and the trick and treat is only the past few years. I had someone knock on the door about 4 years ago but never any other time and I hope not any time soon. Here its daylight til around 7.30 or later.
    I know some do the dressing up but it seem to be the bad side. with most being witches, vampires, etc. We very much have the bad side of it here.

  12. I dress up! I was the Grim Reaper this year. I sat on my front patio in a chair as still as could be with my black hood over my face. Through the material I can see when people come close. If their little, I raise the hood. If they're bigger, I push the music button I have in my hand and Psycho music starts to play. My candy dish has a hand that grabs at them. I have a phone that rings and when they answer it, a ghostly voice says "I'll meet you at the grave." heheheh
