The Halloween Costume Reveal

Its time for my Halloween costume reveal - I know you've been waiting with baited breath lol.

Here is one last look at all the clues:

Have you guessed it?

It has to do with Greek mythology....

For Halloween 2010 I am going to be ...........................................................................................................................................................


I love the idea of this costume because the snakes in the hair clearly tell everyone what the costume is but there are so many ways that I can interpret the character and make it my own! I am super excited to start designing the makeup for this costume and to get those contacts - that's going to be the icing on the cake. Of course there are going to be lots of pictures when the time comes. Oh and BTW if you haven't figured it out- Ben IS going as a man who has been turned to stone- it was his idea and he's honestly letting me do full body make up on him to make him look like stone. Haha - if there's anyone who loves Halloween and dressing up as much as me - its him! I got lucky!

Thanks for playing my little guessing game this week! Can't wait to hear what all of you are going to be for Halloween this year!

Tell me, what are you going to be and where are you going to go?

Much Love Always!

30 days until Halloween!!!

Weekend Recap

We interrupt the regularly scheduled Halloween costume guessing game to bring you this weekend's update.

As  you already know this past weekend was not a traditional weekend for me. I was off Thursday,Friday, and Saturday then went into work on Sunday. This means that I had two peaceful weekdays while Ben was working to get things done! It was lovely but went by way too fast!


I got a lot of maintenance type things done. I cleaned,organized, and decorated @ home then I took my car to the car wash- got the works then vacuumed the heck out of the interior. I went to Auto Zone and Yankee Candle and got some smelly good things to put in my freshly cleaned car. While at Yankee I also discovered my new favorite fall scents:

Mountain Lodge smells masculine and soapy : I have a car jar in this scent hanging in my car and every time I get in I get a little shiver because it reminds me of the way Bennyboo smells right after a shower.

Maple Pancakes smells just like its name suggests. I'm burning this scent right now and I LOVE IT! I try not to have candles in the house that smell like food so that they don't make me hungry but this scent was irresistible!

So I picked up some smelly goods in both of those scents.

Thursday I also printed off lots of wedding pics at Walgreens for my empty frames and picked up a gallon of paint for the spare bedroom that has transitioned to something different at least 3 times since we moved in 3 years ago. This time its going to be a his and hers office. This is an entirely different post that is yet to come but here are a couple shots of the walls before:

We ripped out the old radiator a few months ago and were left with a big white spot on the wall

Where Ben's desk used to be yep that's a Star Wars poster and a bunch of action figure type things on the shelves.

Ben's massive computer desk... why... I have no idea...

After....well in the midst:

The color is called : Glazed Pecan and I love it! We're coming along but aren't quite finished yet. I'm looking forward to this space finally becoming a complete room! I will write a post with pics when its all done!

After some painting I went and got a color update of my own:


Jen and I a couple of weekends ago at a bar out in her neck of the woods


I also tried out a scarf as an accessory. I likes it ... I felt spunky lol!


More cleaning and painting then I met my sister's at a place called Alladin's for lunch. When I got home Ben informed me that some new friends from his training class at work were coming down to head out to a bar for the night. So we got Emily and Will together with them and all went to a bar nearby. It was fun to meet some of the people that Ben has been working with - in the entire 6.5 years we've been together he's never hung out with people from work so I'm glad he's meeting people he can relate to at his new job.

Out on the town:

 Me and Emily
 Me and my Boo
 Me and Will
 Me and Ben's work friend Justin
 Just Me
 Emily and Will
 Ben's work friends Jamey and Abdu - not sure about this hand thing....
Kiss kiss!

Saturday was lazy, lazy all day- which was just what the dr. ordered!

Now we're almost half way through the week! Thank God!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far and btw loving the feedback on the Halloween costume! Keep guessing and I'll tell ya Friday!

Much Love Always!

Guess My Costume: Clue # 2

I'm constructing from a fabric that has yet to be discovered a "dress" that will look a little something like this. No boobs will be hanging out mind you - and any midriff that shows will be minimal. I'm looking to show a little cleavage, a lot of leg, and a little bit of sexy back. That's the great thing about making your own outfit- you can suit it to your own body.

I should really start making my own clothes...probably should learn to sew first though...hmmm.

Oh! Almost forgot the fabric I choose won't be white....probably some shade of green...and maybe with a particular reptile's print.....

Hmmm...what could it be?

Happy Guessing!

Halloweens Gone By & Guess My Costume: Clue #1

Halloween is my favorite, favorite, favorite! I love putting together creative and unique costumes and ALWAYS make my own - I'm kind of anal about it I make sketches and compile images - but its once a year and its oh so much fun!

Here is a glimpse back at the last four years:

Scarecrow& Pirate 2006:

Adam & Eve: 2007

Princess Lolly From Candyland 2008 (wish I had a better pic handy):

Burlesque Era Vampir 2009:

So what's in store for this year?

Each day this week I'll be providing a clue as to what my Halloween Costume will be this year: 

Clue #1

My own eyes are too human to really fit the bill - these reptile eyes will suit my costume MUCH better - ordering these contacts or ones like them soon!

Happy Guessing!
