October 30th Costume of the Day

Almost there!  Can't believe tomorrow is Halloween.  Seems like we just got over Christmas and was wondering what the new year would bring!

Today is a funny tribute to the S**t costumes (i.e. Holy S**t, No S**t, Bull S**t, etc.)  Instead of being S**t we will use the terd...term, Poo, as in "Poo" Bear.  Any of the S**t costumes will do and just add teddy bear ears and a jar of honey.

October 26th-29th Costumes of the Day!

Playing catch-up!  It's been a crazy week and costumes have been the focus of just about everything leading up to this weekend :)  Here's the final cut:

October 26th: Mr. "T"ea, Wear a mustache and put a capital T on a shirt, OR throw on the Mohawk/Fauxhawk and carry a cup o'tea. 

October 27th: Devil with a Blue Dress (1995 classic), easy peasy!  Wear a blue dress...funnier when a guy does it, and throw on some devil horns :)

October 28th: Boxed Wine, Pick your favorite wine label, attach it to a shirt, make a black spot around one eye (for a black eye) and wear boxing gloves.

October 29th: Happy Bunny, you can buy bunny ears pretty much anywhere as well as a t-shirt with a smartass saying on it.

The top two will be posted soon :)

Happy Costume Hunting :)

October 20th Costume of the Day

Invisible Woman: (very easy) buy a sheet of camouflage netting; when people ask what you are dressed as, wrap it around you so they can't see you. If you're a guy dressing this part just add a wig and some lipstick.

Poker Face: Draw the four suits on your face (heart, diamond, clubs, spade).  To really add to the costume you can pin cards in groups of a full house, four of a kind, flush, etc. to a shirt.

October 18th Costume of the Day

Not to beat the angel theme to death, but here's another spin on the feathery lovliness.

October 16th Costume of the Day

LOL!  Here's a funny classic...

"It puts the lotion on the skin":  You can go retro with a tan skin suit (They're all the rage this season with a multitude of colors--hubs has one!) and carry a bottle of lotion.


Joe Dirt style: skin suit, sleeveless plaid button down shirt, a mullet, and lotion. 

October 15th Costume of the Day

For my SIL-ly gal (SIL-Sister in law for you non readers): 

Johnny on the Spot:  Wear a name tag that says "Johnny", cut out a big black circle from felt or construction paper.  When someone asks who you are throw the spot on the floor, stand on it, and say "Johnny on the spot!"

**The picture of Johnny Depp has nothing to do with the costume...he's just a hottie :)

Cops and Caffeine

I have some friends who wear badges and run towards the chaos.  In the midst of the chaos, long hours, weird encounters, and dangerous daily tasks, I asked them, "What's your poison?" 

Here's some of the replies:

Fuzzy 1: Mt. Dew.  Gotta have the Dew.

Fuzzy 2: Water, gym time, and protein *insert man grunt here* 

Fuzzy 3: COFFEE...<---must agree

Fuzzy 4: Sweet tea *I've heard it keeps'em sweet, otherwise they are a bear to work for*

Fuzzy 5: Diet Coke, coffee, Mt. Dew, straight caffeine works too.

Fuzzy 6: Coffee with a Diet Dr. Pepper chaser *wink*

The caffeine crusade continues!

**Just for S&G I asked about the donut diet...I'll save that for another post ;)
