presenting my costume...

Dressing up for Halloween really isn't my thing. I don't feel like I'm very creative, and I'm not resourceful when it comes to putting together a costume. Plus, if I had it my way, I'd be a princess every year. Cheesy? Yes, but it's true :) haha. A couple years ago we went to a some Halloween parties and we dressed up as tacky tourists...

 It was silly but it worked!
That is totally a spider man fanny pack :)

Well this past week my brother and sister in law had a little Halloween party and I was stressing big time about dressing up. But then, I received some inspiration..... from my blog! Haha, I am so serious! Let me present...

Barbie Magic Hairstylist and my Ken ;)
We're not paying attention to the camera but you can see my easy peasy costume.


I know it's hard to tell from the pictures but I had really big, fluffy barbie hair (honestly, I never poof my hair like that) and very pink make up! Eric just got to wear his normal clothes (which he was happy about, that man is not easy to work with haha) and I gave him a big pink smooch on his cheek ;) Super easy, right?
I knew I pulled the costume off when my brother made fun of me throughout the night, ha! We had such a great time at the party! I wouldn't mind more Halloween's like this one :)



HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
