  • Aw, shuckerooski! Thanks so much for featuring our Punny Hashtag Halloween costume from last year. What an honor to be in this fantastic mix of Halloween costume ideas. As always, you’ve gathered so many gems in one spot. I’m working on a similar round-up of my own for tomorrow…and this gave me an added burst of energy to finish strong. Thanks, friend! Off to pin.
