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!

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Lent 2020: Day Two

Today's post is brought to you by...COFFEE.  I'm not going to lie, I really did consider giving up coffee for Lent, but when I mentioned it to one of my best friends, his response was "well, I'll see you in 40 days!"  I was kind of shocked at his lack of support, but then I read a post that was shared with me regarding Lent and some "food for thought" and one of the bullet points read "Don't give up coffee. Jesus will forgive you, but your family might not."  Well---I heard God loud and clear on that one.  Don't give up coffee.  And I'm so very glad I did not. See today, I had a TON of things to accomplish.  We're gearing up for a big weekend and I had quite the laundry list to do.  Not only was my laundry list (and my laundry basket) huge, but I didn't sleep well last night.  I had a very restless husband, so I put myself out on the couch.  Which wasn't terrible, but it wasn't exactly great, either.  So I already

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.
