Holla for Halloween


As you probably already guessed from the pictures, I was a BIG pink loofah and Ross was a simple guy in need of a shower. I like to call our Halloween theme this year as "Bathing in Love". Cheesy I know, but clever nonetheless, right? By the way, Ross has been a hardcore gym rat lately...just look at those abs!

So, I Googled this costume and those that posted the DIY tutorials are LIARS!! Straight up LIARS! They said they only used 30-50 yards of tulle and that it only took them 1-2 hours to make. Puh-leeeeeese!!! Guys, it took 300 yards of tulle, over 300 safety pins and almost 6 hours to cover my strapless dress. Once I started I knew I was in trouble, but there was no looking back because I had no back up plan. It was not the best use of my time, but it was fun wearing and I am happy with how it all turned out. Lesson learned: BUY A COSTUME NEXT YEAR!

We had two parties Friday night.

First up was the "Hootenanny" at Mr. and Mrs. Jon and Ruthie Hart's house. Ruthie is a fellow Austin blogger and to say that I absolutely adore her would be an understatement. This was our first time meeting IRL and I was so excited to finally hug her neck. She is as gorgeous and sweet as she is on her blog. Ruthie, I can't wait for Top Golf to finally open so we can get our swing on with our boys. Some other Austin blogger lovelies also joined in on the festivities: Mallorie, Nikol, Samantha and Brooke.

Next, it was off to our neighbors shin-dig. Oh.My.Stars! Jesus even appeared for this one and graced us with prayer and blessings. I also ran into the one and only Magnum P.I., hung with Snooki and Pauly D and may or may not have been handcuffed by "The Sheriff". I would say it was an epic night. A memorable night. A look back at your camera the next day and laugh your loofah off kind of night. And no, I did not fall asleep in my loofah, just in case your were wondering.

Until next year, I mean Wednesday.

Did you dress up this past weekend? If so, what did you dress as and did you see any AMAZING, one of a kind costumes out there?

I am linking up with: Leeann, Dana and Sami for the Weekend Update. 
Molly for YOLO Mondays.
Go visit them!

Hahaha....love your costumes! I am going as catwoman from The Dark Knight Rises... Not very creative, I know, but since everyone tells me I look like Anne Hathaway I'm going to take advantage. Although, I don't have a party to go to so I might not get to wear it...sad :-(

How adorable! My husband and I pulled together costumes with a little DIY, but NOTHING that took 6 hours. Yikes! We dressed up as Suzy Bishop and Sam Shukusky from Wes Anderson's film from this summer, Moonrise Kingdom. It was so fun! Glad y'all had a good time!

MissRockwell said...

OK so I love the fact that you were a loofah. I couldn't figure out for the life of me what it was until I read it. That's a genius idea. But sheesh, it sure did take a long time to make. I agree, you should definitely buy your costume next year.
