happy halloween, everyone!
chad and i mulled over what in the world we should be for halloween the past few weeks. we originally wanted to be mary poppins and the chimney sweeper, but our last minute attitudes left us kind of limited with our costume options.
so! we put our heads together and decided that we would make use of chads red hair. now, if any of you have ever tried to find a peter pan costume for a very manly, 6’6” mountain of a man..then you feel my pain right now. there were many tireless hours spent at the sewing machine last night. maybe a few tears. and maybe one or two unpleasant words were spoken. my sewing machine is really lucky she made it through the night. but alas, my college sewing class skills were put to use….and overnight, chad morphed into peter. my little brother put it best when he said “how did you manage to reverse the effects of puberty on chad?” magic, people. magic, tears, blood and sweat. okay, maybe just a quick shave on his part, and a felt hat tutorial on mine. but hey, i think he makes a pretty good looking peter pan, if i do say so myself.
now, as far as tinker bell goes…..finding a costume was almost the death of me. last night, as i had almost given up all efforts to find something to wear, i found this hot pink tutu in the childrens section at target. don’t look at me like that. i know what you’re thinking. but, i picked the biggest size i could find in the little girls section, and i marched straight to the dressing room. with a little struggle over the backside…..boom. that little tutu fit just fine. so don’t go knockin the kids section ladies. disney designs has some great stuff for girls of any age if you’re looking to put a little sparkle in your closet!
anyway, its our first halloween as a married couple, and we are really looking forward to the little ones climbing up the stairs of our porch for some tricks and treats. we stocked up on candy, and have recorded the greatest halloween movie of all time to watch while we wait…”hocus pocus”!
i’m lucky i have such a willing husband to dress up as a disney character without any fuss. but to be honest, i think he is having a little too much fun wielding his fun size knife and flying around downtown.
hope you have as much fun as we are this halloween, ladies and gents! don’t be afraid to get crazy and shop in the kids section or walk around town with a felt hat and gold trimmed belt. take it from us.
and, of course, tink can’t be tink without peter pan…
i just realized this looks like one of those “themed” peter pan engagement sessions. we aren’t THAT into disney, y’all.
