fyc halloween: rosie the riveter.


This one is so simple it’s almost funny.  We’ve gone to the the museum of flight here in Seattle several times and my favorite part has always been reading about Rosie the Riveter and all the women like her who stepped up and took care of business during World War II.  Those women were seriously […]

FYC halloween: LBD witch.


Similar dress. Quick and simple.  Everyone’s got a little black dress in their closet.  (And if you haven’t, now’s the time to grab one.) Add a witches hat (I snagged this one at JoAnn’s for $4)  a pair of patterned tights, and a great pair of pumps. more gorgeous lbds below:

fyc halloween: french mime.


I’m not going to lie, this is probably one of the funnest costumes I’ve ever put together and it was so, so easy.  And is it weird to admit that I think I would almost just wear this, like as an outfit?  Those mimes, I mean, they’re stylish.  And any costume where I get to […]

from your closet halloween: where’s waldo?


 I feel like it’s really important if you happen to read this blog, that you understand me, and to really understand me–you know–fundamentally as a person, you need to know that when it comes to All Hallows Eve, I’m a bit of a freak.  I love Halloween.  I’ve adored dressing up for Halloween ever since […]

Trench: Boden. (similar here.) Jeans: Hudson.  Wellies: Hunter. (adult version here.) Umbrella: Old Navy. (similar.) I think I’ve mentioned on here before that we don’t watch TV.  Heck, we don’t even have TV.  We never got it in college, because we were poor as church mice and Craig and I decided that eating everyday was […]

I apologize in advance for the 28 billion pictures that follow in this post, but if I could bottle up my children right now, just as they are, this is what it would look like, and I really don’t want to limit documenting that.  You’ve been warned. I don’t know at what point fall “the […]
