Here's a look at my Halloween costume from last year...Anyone wanna guess who or what I'm dressed up as?

Fifty Shades

Just in case you missed a moment of the cuteness at Port Charlotte Honda's Annual Costume Contest, this past Saturday...  Congratulations to the grand prize winner at this year's Port Charlotte Honda costume contest! It was a team effort between Conner and Patrick Kloss who were dressed up as a mighty appetizing bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, and a chef! Heartwarming side note: part of the prize money is intended to buy their Nana a much-needed wheelchair!!

The kids and adults were super cute this year!  So much thought and care went into these great costumes!  We had a wonderful time enjoying being kids again!  A special thanks to Port Charlotte Honda for hosting this great event!

How to successfully navigate Halloween whether you’re handing out candy or going out to party.

Halloween is a lot of fun, but there are a few things to keep in mind to make the night better for everyone. Here are the dos and don’ts for staying sane, being a good neighbor, and what to do if you’re a newbie to this whole passing out candy for trick-or-treaters thing.

  • DO spring for the good candy - No one wants raisins or stale black licorice. Plus, if you buy candy you actually like you can treat yo self to a few pieces.
  • DO leave your light off if you forgot to buy candy or aren't home - Not everyone abides this unwritten rule, but not having your lights on usually signals you’re not home or have no more candy to give.
  • DON'T leave candy outside unsupervised - It seems like a good idea, but some little jerk will come by and dump the whole bowl into their treat bag.
  • DON'T ask kids what they are - Just ask them to “Tell me about your costume” instead.
  • DO wear a costume - If you’re going trick-or-treating or to a Halloween party, make the effort to dress up.
  • DO be original with costumes - Get more creative than a sexy mouse or a sexy deer. You’re better than that.
  • DON'T forget to say please and thank you - Be polite, good manners are always appreciated.
  • DO be extra cautious - It’s dark, kids are all over the place and they’re wearing costumes. So pay attention and take it easy on the roads.
  • DON'T hand out homemade treats - Your homemade baked goods are probably delicious but no one will know because the number one for trick-or-treating is you aren’t allowed to take unwrapped treats, so don’t waste your time.
  • DO clear a path so your walkway is easy to navigate - Save your plants from getting trampled and keep those little witches and superheroes safe with some lights and a clear walkway.
