Witches Night Out!

Part One: I am blessed with many great friends. Two of these great ladies became my friends while we were all employed at the Fairfield Inn, in Provo. Bless you, Fairfield. Bless you and your micro-management for giving us all something to bond over. One of them doesn't work there anymore, and the other became the front desk manager. Go figure. I'm so glad we have all stayed close and are such good friends with each other!

Part two: I LOVE HALLOWEEN. This year I wanted to be sure to do something "Hallo-weeny" (That's not a real word.) every weekend of October. THIS past weekend I decided to take these two witches with me to Gardner Village in South Jordan for their annual "Witches Night Out". I'd never been before,  but I heard it was fun! Basically you just dress up as a witch and go shopping in this little village. YESSSS!!! Every woman's dream! Katie and I drove up to meet at Stephanie's place, which was conveniently located just a few blocks from Gardner's village!
We decided to go full-out. It was an incredible night.
We each had a distinctly different witch.

Steph, Me and Katie. 

Not even sure if she is actually a witch. XD haha! 

Three lovely ladies ready for a night on the town!

We went to a fancy restaurant for dinner and enjoyed the strange look
we got for our elaborate costumes.
Then it was off to the Village! Parking is just $5.00 and it was definitely worth it because cars were parked up the street on both sides for about a mile before we reached the entrance! We got right in and got a great parking spot near the exit! 
It was 8pm, just in time for the "Witches Parade" which just turned out to be a big gathering/dance-party in the square so you can get a good look at all the other costumes. It was fantastic! There were so many different types of witch hats! Some people went full-out like us, others just had hats, and a few people didn't even dress up. LAME!

Katie Hammerland is basically the cutest person on earth. :) 

Aaaaaand, Stephanie Aymat is the weirdest. XD haha!

After dancing in the witch crowd we went shopping in the many village shops!
There is SO much adorable furniture and knick-knacks everywhere!
We found this little "friends" sign and couldn't resist the perfect photo. :)

At ten o'clock we hurried back to the main square to join in the Thriller dance! Woohoo! 


There were hundreds of witches. Coolest event ever!
There was also this strange guy on stilts. 
 When Thriller ended the event was technically over, but we hurried back to the sweet shop to wait in line for some fudge before they closed. Gardner village has THE BEST fudge!!

Witches gonna get some FUDGE! 
After we got our fudge we walked back through the village to the car. Almost everyone had cleared out already so we didn't have to wait in traffic at all! We rock!

It was such a great night out with my girls. :) I love dressing up, I love shopping, and I love my WITCHES!!
