Hi everyone! I’m so happy to be participating in Entangled’s Halloween Blog Hop! Besides being part of something with a large group of authors that I admire so much, I’m excited to share my love of Halloween with you all. It’s my favorite holiday.

Now that my kids are older, we don’t go all out like we used to, but we still love stopping in every single Halloween store we drive by so we can check out all the fun stuff. And we still love carving pumpkins. And we still love watching a scary movie or two on TV.

So I’ve been looking through old pictures the past couple of weeks and thought I’d share a few of my favorite Halloween ones with you. The first is of my two boys when they were little. My friend actually made that Elmo costume and my oldest wore it first. My hubby helped make my older son’s costume. He’s a dead baseball player. Totally his idea so my hubby ran with it. That’s a piece of a real baseball bat going through his chest in case you couldn’t tell.

This next photo is one of my very favorites. It’s my hubby and my oldest son. I can’t stop smiling whenever I look at it.

And this last one is of me and my honey dressed up for one of our Halloween parties. His costume totally cracks me up. I couldn’t believe he wore it! And uh, sorry for the hand on the butt, but I didn’t have any others of just the two of us from that night.

So to celebrate this wonderful holiday that I love so much, I’ve got a giveaway! Follow the Rafflecopter below and you’ll entered to win a Halloween gift bag filled with a couple of Shane and Kagan’s favorite things! Shane and Kagan are my hero and heroine from my newest release, HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND. Here’s what you’ll find inside the bag: a spice scented candle, jumbo skull sprinkles to add on top of your favorite ice cream, jelly belly jelly beans and a little Halloween decoration. Two winners will be chosen. The contest runs through October 31st and I’ll post the winners names on November 1st. The giveaway is open internationally.

Oh, by the way, I thought you might like to know that Shane is dressing as Bam Bam for Halloween and Kagan is Pebbles. Yes, I said Bam Bam. Meaning he’ll be shirtless and wearing very little else. ;)

Don’t forget to stop by the other Entangled authors’ blogs for giveaways and Halloween fun! You can check out the list of other participants HERE. Happy Fall everyone!

      • Robin

        Hi Elena! Yeah, I’ve got Shane in my head now too! LOL Love Little Red Riding Hood! Funny story – my hubby and I dressed as the big bad wolf and red one year, only *he* was Red Riding Hook and I was the wolf! We won best couple costume! *hugs!*

  2. Rachel Hamilton

    I love all the costumes. And the one with you and your husband is super cute. I admire a man who would wear an outfit like that. Your kids were georgeous.

    • Robin

      Hi Rachel! I love looking at pictures of my kids when they were little! I think they’re still pretty darn cute, but they’re not keen on my sharing pics of them now. Yeah, my hubby doesn’t take himself too seriously and can totally make fun of himself. He cracks me up all the time. (See my reply to Elena above.) *hugs!*

    Actually, I think my fav time will be this year! I have a skeleton costume that is totally awesome! My son has been Waldo for the past few years and that’s been a lot of fun too… People get so excited when they see him!

    • Robin

      Hi Linda! Have fun getting your skeleton on! I love that your son likes to dress up the same way every year. Have a great costume, keep wearing it!

    • Robin

      Hi Brooke! Oh, I love that! How awesome! Zombies are a favorite in my household. :) Thanks so much for stopping by here! (I’ll “see” you on the 28th!)

    Hi Robin! It’s so great of you to be apart of this fabulous giveaway~
    A favorite costume??? My home made ninja assassin costume? It was my first attempt at sewing my own costume and I’ll say it turned out pretty okay. LOL No picture though but I still have it, maybe in tatters now. :D

    • Robin

      Hi Ki Pha! Ninja assassin sounds very badass and cool! And the fact that you made it is awesome. (I can barely sew a button back on something.) Thanks so much for hopping by here!

    • Robin

      Hi Karin! Yay for all of them! I have the feeling this is a favorite holiday of yours. :) Thanks for being here!

  5. Robin, those photos are adorable! And don’t apologise for the hand on the butt, I think it’s really cute – and just the sort of thing my dh would do :inlove: I hope you have a fabulous Halloween.

  6. Loved the pics! My favorite costumes have all involved letting out my inner goddess. Twice, I went for the elegant, classic, goddess look. Once, I went for the evil, green-faced, “don’t mess with me, can’t you see I have snakes on my head and I’ll turn you to stone” Medusa. All three times were fun. Thanks so much for sharing.

    • Robin

      Hi Michelle! Love your inner goddess! The good and the bad. LOL I’m so glad you stopped by to share – thanks!

  7. Merry

    My favorite Halloween costume was the ‘sexy pumpkin’–I was whining about the uncreative costumes available, and a friend challenged me to make it. Not my best look, but we laugh at it years later.

    • Robin

      Hi Merry! I bet you looked great! I’m always so in awe of people who make their own costumes. Thank you for stopping by!

  8. Jess

    Awww, what great photos! You know, after reading how you met your husband, I can’t picture you NOT together especially when I look at these pictures.

    My favorite costume was when I dressed us as Clark Gable in Gone With the Wind. We had to give a presentation about an old Hollywood actor and come dressed as their most famous role. It drove my parents crazy when I picked Gable, but I had so much fun picking out a gentleman’s waistcoat and wearing a fake mustache. Later when I went trick-or-treating I had to explain who I was. LOL

    • Robin

      Hi Jess! Aww, thanks so much! My hubby and I have spent a LOT of fun and wonderful Halloweens together! Thanks so much for visiting me at Fresh Fiction, too! :)

      Love that you were Clark Gable! Did the mustache tickle?

  9. Sarah M

    My parents put together a Raggedy Ann outfit when I was 5 or 6 :) Very cute photos. Red yarn wig, facepaint to look like the ragdoll, blue dress, white leggings and arms. Best costume :)

    • Robin

      Hi Sarah! Aww, I bet you were adorable! With 2 boys I never got to do the girlie thing. Although one year my older son did dress up as a girl! He and a few boys looked hilarious in dresses. He actually wore the green one I’m wearing in the picture I posted! Oh, the memories….

      Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Sebella Blue

    So far my favorite has been the year I dressed as Octomom. It was such a hoot and won best costume! 8-)

    • Robin

      Hi Sebella! OMG! That’s awesome! And congrats on winning best costume! I love when people can pull off being a real person. One year my best friend was Audrey Hepburn and she looked amazing! Thanks for sharing (and for the twitter love!)

    • Robin

      Hi Jane! I really love him back. :) Zombies totally rock. And you know what? I’ve never been one! I think I might have to do the walking dead thing next year! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    • Robin

      Hi Charlene! You are so awesome for stopping by – thank you! Oh gosh, I can hear them saying, “Arrrgh!” too! Such a wonderful memory. Happy Halloween! Have fun with your granddaughters!

    • Robin

      Hi Pam! I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Peculiar Purple Pie Man, but I bet you looked awesome! Most importantly, you remember it fondly. Thanks so much for hopping by here!

  11. Robin

    Hi Blake! Baseball players are big in my household! And actually one year I took the lazy way out and dressed as a baseball fan and wore my Angels jersey. :) Thanks so much for stopping by!

    • Robin

      Hi Ana! That sounds like an awesome costume. I’ve never dressed as something where I got to carry a sword! Thanks for stopping by!

  12. felicia

    One year I went as a half baby/women. The baby top came out of tummy and the bottom came out of my back. very wicked.

      Hi Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by! Oh my gosh, I LOVE The Rocky Horror Picture Show!! I bet you looked fantastic. And now I’ve got the Time Warp in my head… LOL

  14. Silvia

    Love the photos! My favourite costume was the Calavera with full on Sugar Skull makeup I did a couple of years ago.

    • Robin

      Hi Silvia! Oh, I wish I could see a picture of you – I wish I could see pictures of everyone! What a great costume and I love when make-up is involved (instead of a mask). It just seem so real then! ;) Thanks for sharing!

    • Robin

      Hi Kimmy! That is too cute. Our kids see us as “Mom” and no one else! Which is a wonderful feeling. Maybe you can wear that costume again when they’re older! :) Thanks so much for stopping by!

    • Robin

      Hi Oriana! Thank you. Princesses, I think, are fun costumes at any age. <3 I was Cinderella just a few year ago. Thanks for hopping by!

  15. Jessica D

    I think my favorite costume was from 2 years ago. My boyfriend and I dressed as Clark Kent and Lois Lane. No one knew who we were til he unbuttoned his shirt to reveal the Superman shirt underneath. We even won best couple!

  16. Karen Origer-Greco

    As a child my favorite costume was a cute little witch but as an adult I like dressing up like a garden fairy.

  17. Beverly Gorodn

    honestly anything home made is awesome i wanna do a steampunk themed Halloween party one of these yrs and dress up like a steam punk fairy

    • Robin

      Hi Karen! I do, too! I love people watching. So far today I’ve seen a witch, Santa Claus, Cookie Monster, and a devil! :)

  18. Hi Robin, love the pictures! Even grown up I have a costume, well. Two. One is such a scary witch (well, that doesn’t take too much work LOL)that I’ve had kids back off. So I tamed it down to a skeleton torso on a black tee-shirt, and a light-up skull head my son got me at Disneyland for a joke.

    Best of luck with your releases and congrats again on your Bookbuyers Best Award! Love you…xox

    • Robin

      Hi Tanya! Thanks so much for stopping by! And thank you for the congrats! I love costumes that light up! And I bet your witch rocked – and that you did so have to work hard to make it scary! Because your sweetness always shines through!
