With Halloween being on a Tuesday this year, tons of people celebrated the spooky holiday the weekend before in Illinois.

I couldn't get on social media the last few days without seeing everyone posting their clever, hilarious, and homemade Halloween costumes on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.

My favorite part of Halloween is seeing everyone's pets dressed up.  As much as we know most of our pets hate clothing, it's still the cutest thing to see a dog walking around as a little devil lol.

My least favorite costumes I've seen?  Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift.  If you're thinking about doing it, please don't - or at least have your boyfriend be Taylor to spice things up haha.

Over the weekend, I ran into a mom with her baby girl at an event and her daughter's costume was the most adorable, creative thing I've ever seen.
