This past weekend, Ryan and I and two other couples bravely ventured to The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. More specifically, we went the The Shining Ball. It... was... fabulous! We had a blast and it was definitely the best Halloween we've had since trick-or-treating as little kids.
The hubs and I in front of The Stanley Hotel!
Some of our our very good friends, Carlos and Elyse. They were by far the best looking flapper/gangster couple at The Ball.
Jack Nicholson! He was hosting The Shining Ball which was perfectly fitting since he was in the movie The Shining (which I admittedly did not know until this weekend).
Here's our artsty-fartsy pictures that I came up with, complete with our red rum punch.
This couple won the award for Best Costumes, and most deservingly so. They looked incredible as The Queen of Hearts and The Mad Hatter, it was literally like they walked right out of the movie. And for their prize, they won a stay in Room 217 at The Stanley... supposedly the most haunted room in the entire hotel! Not so sure I would want to win...
The other fabulous couple and our good friends, David and Kristen Swadley. They looked oh-so-chilling (and amazing) as The Ice Queen and Jack Frost.
This was by far Ryan and I's favorite! This little boy was so cute I could eat him up. I could definitely see Ryan putting this on his little boy one day! Shhh!
