Not only did it pour on us, which never happens in Arizona, but also the entire event was so poorly organized. First, we had to park so far away. We could have parked closer but there were so many cars and people that it really wasn’t worth it. The walk was sort of nice though bec[...]

My Favorite Halloween Costumes

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! Ok, let’s be honest, I pretty much love all holidays. But there is something special about Halloween. I really like clever Halloween costumes and when a couple or a group of people has a theme. Halloween can be spooky, but it is also the one night you can pretend to be whoever you want to be without judgment. Spartan Cheerleaders The Spartan Cheerle[...]
