Halloween Costume Ideas: 2018

Now that October has arrived, Halloween is fast approaching and I need to get on the ball for some costume ideas for J and I!  Just for fun, here's an old throw-back to one of our first Halloween's together!  Wow---look at those babies!



I've been scouring Pinterest and the Interwebs to try to find some of the best (and easiest, because let's face it, this Mama doesn't have time for much these days!) Halloween costumes that the collective Halloweenies of the World have concocted.  Here's some of my favorites:

1.  Jack & Coke


Ahh, the simplicity!  Plus, I may be fully tempted to go trick-or-treating with a tumbler of Jack & Coke to keep me warm (#nojudgement).  I mean, a couple t-shirts, some jeans, and Chucks and done.  This is at the top of my list for obvious reasons.

2.  Dr. Grant & Ellie Sattler


Channeling my inner 90's child has me all sorts of giddy on the inside!  Plus, I could dress my kids up as dinosaurs and that would just make me every kind of happy!  BUT, imagining myself as a blonde Asian kind of makes me a little squeamish on the inside---I don't think it'd look quite the best for me.  IF one of you chooses to do this for Halloween, PLEASE send me a pic!!

3.  Chip & Joanna Gaines


This duo makes my heart go pitter-patter.  They are true #relationshipgoals and I think that J and I are pretty much on the same level as them.  Their quirky humor, the way they joke around, plus their obvious chemistry always makes me think of us when I see them on HGTV!  So this costume idea speaks to my heart in more ways than one (I mean, this one is pretty simple, too!  I'm sure I have Joanna's outfit in my closet right now, just because I love her style!)  I could even create a printable like these two!  Who wants one, too?!

4.  Bob & Linda Belcher


Now my good friend, Katrina and her husband, went as Bob & Linda Belcher one year.  She totally inspired me to want to do the same!  Katrina is amazing and does some great Cosplay work (you can check out her Facebook Page here) and I would love to be as creative as her with fabric and costuming ideas!  This one, I really think I could pull off.  Plus, she made Lexi a Louise Hate and I'm pretty sure that still fits her... hmm....

5.  Clark Kent (Superman) & Lois Lane


This costume duo is perfect in the sense that you don't even have to change after coming home from the office on Wednesday night!  I could make J just wear a Superman T-shirt to work all day under his suite and when he gets home, he can unbutton a bit and ta-da!  Insta-costume!  It actually makes me want to make a cute Press Pass printable, too!

What other Couple Costume ideas do you have?  What would you like to dress up as?  Is there anything you'd like me to curate and turn into a free printable option for download?  Comment below or drop me a line anytime!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space? I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability. Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.
