Marie one of the first blogs that I started keeping up with she always has the nicest things to say. Also has very creative and funny posts.

Shanda I love reading her blog she is very sweet southern gal who makes me want to live on a farm (that is saying alot).

This was really hard because I love all you gals some much! And thanks for the award!

Sorry this post is so long I really want to share something and get some advice from you all. Every year I host a Halloween party this is what I dressed up like last year now I am in search for something different! Help! Yes hubby dressed like a convict (its a really jump suit he works at the sheriff's department).
Me and Robyn
Any advice we take this pretty serious some people have had their costumes since this summer and its my party! And now to pumpkin carving I know this is really long sorry again but I wanted to show pictures of our pumpkins from our last two years pumpkin carving parties. Yes we love Halloween around here. Some of the pictures are smaller because I had to borrow them from my myspace.

okay I hope yall hung around for all of this I hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoy the fall weather!

Love ya!

How sweet! Thank you so much....I love your blog and check it every day! This made my Friday!!!

I love the costumes...Now just an idea...we had a party three years ago and remember drew carey and that lady who wore the deep blue eyeshadow...they dressed up like that and were the life of the party!!!!

Valarie said...

Thank You!!! That was so sweet!


You could always do the Flintstones, and choose either Fred and Wilma, Betty and Barney, or you could do Peebles and Bam Bam. Now that would be cute :)

Maybe Gilligan and the Skipper

Congrat's on your award. I need serious help in the costume department. I have a party next week and I have no idea what to wear. I'm going to come back to see what people say on your post. :-)

Daphine said...

Congrats on your award.

I wish I could offer some creative ideas for ya. I am just clueless in the department of Halloween costumes though. Sounds like a lot of pressure. From looking at the picture from last year's party, I thought you and hubby looked great. Good luck!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

Congrats! Very cute! Have you gone as a couple costume before? You know like fred and wilma flintstone or salt and pepper :)

Reynie said...

Congrats on your award! Well deserved!

You were so cute last year in your Halloween get-up! Party City always has great costumes.

Marie said...

THANK YOU for thinking of me! What a nice award to get! And congrats to you as well!

Are you SURE that is only a costume your husband is wearing? lol Anyhooo...about 14 years ago (when the movie was popular!) my husband and I went to a Halloween party dressed as Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World. It was pretty funny.

Robyn Beele said...

I may be dressing up like a pregnant woman!

Rae said...

Yay! Congratulations!!!! I wish I could help you in the costume department but I can honestly say I have not dressed up since becoming an adult! I hope we can sill be friends!!!!!! :)

Joy said...

Hooray for you and your award!

My advice? about the vice pres. candidates, or fortune tellers (and you could tell your guests their future), or the blue man group, or Lucy and Ricky, or cheerleader and jock....just to name a few.

Good luck deciding and have a great weekend.

Sharlyn said...

Tam said...

SWEET!!!! Thank YOU for the AWARD...SO how did YOU KNOW I needed a little pick me UP!! LOL

OK for the costume....I THINK YOU WOULD BE TOOOO CUTE IN THE GREESE OUTFIT that I SAW in some SANDY in the POODLE SKIRT and all. I saw the picture of the COSTUME in SOME MAGAZINE recently....OO and YOUR HUSBAND could be HER BAD GUY! HEY you could dress up as a PINK LaDY also! Remember GREESE TWO and the black Leather Pants and Jacket????
BUT I think you would MAKE the CUTEST EVER SANDY!!!!!
