This is my first Halloween here at SMC, and I should have known it was going to be awesome!! Here is how my weekend went:
Allie, Michaela and I started our Friday by spending some time in Burlington. When I was first looking at Saint Michael's, I didn't realize how easy it would be to catch a bus and head right to Church Street. I thought it would always be this big ordeal, but really it's rather simple. In Burlington we shopped around and got some supplies for our costumes. We didn't know what we wanted to be really, we had some ideas, but it was still in the air. Then, when browsing around Old Gold (a really cool shop around the corner from Church Street), we came across the perfect dresses to be Powerpuff Girls!! So we completed our costumes and headed back to Saint Mike's.

There were thoughts of us going to UVM to see one of Allie's friends on Friday, but then we decided to stay here at SMC and show off our cool costumes. We hung out mainly in Joyce on Friday and it was a blast! Little did I know there was even more fun to be had on Saturday at the dance!
The day of the dance! I mainly lounged around on Saturday during the day, then when 7 rolled around I started getting ready. Something I learned about Halloween on Saturday: Three-quarters of the fun on Halloween is getting ready. J4 was all a-buzz of girls getting ready, doing hair, make-up, and trying to figure out which way to wear their costumes best. After getting ready, we took pictures (of course) and headed to the dance.
The dance was so fun, we danced with my floor, and I even got to roll around a couple of times around the dance floor.
Sunday was a lounge day. I mainly just hung out in my pj's and did homework. I also spent some valuable time in the library on Sunday.
Today!! Its Halloween!
It is a perfect fall day. I am going to try to finish my homework so later we can play cards. Today I got a package from my mom with night-vision goggles! Maybe those will come in handy tonight for some tricks... Speaking of my mom/my hometown, this weekend they got a ton of snow! I go to college in Vermont, and they get snow while its snow-less here! I decided I am okay with this though because the snow is causing mass-mayhem in Wallingford. Plus I know I will be getting plenty of snow this winter.
Have a happy halloween everyone!
