Three Things…Halloween

Looking at the calendar, today’s Three on Thursday for me is seasonal…three simple Halloween costumes over the years.

For many years, I’ve been lucky to enjoy Halloween festivities with my TX girlies. With a flight involved to reach the girls, my costumes over the years have been simple/easy pack options. Here, a few favorites…

2007 – Super Sweet! – A Superman t-shirt + a quick knit Candy Corn Hat = Super Sweet. I knit the hat on the flight down to TX. This has been a costume I’ve used a couple of times over the years.

2009 – Fairy Godmother – I remember one Saturday morning that summer, Maya called me because the girls had a Halloween request for me – they wanted me to dress up as a fairy godmother. Well, of course. This was a chiffon skirt and sparkly sweater, some rhinestone jewelry, a dress-up tiara & a pair of butterfly wings that the girls had.

2014 – Rosie the Riveter – What fun to bring a favorite WWII “icon” to life. Jeans and a denim shirt, my hair pinned up under a red polka dot bandana, bright red lips and viola! My favorite memory was when the girls saw me dressed up, when I asked who I was they immediately replied with “Rosie the Riveter!”

What are some of your simple Halloween costumes?

Three on Thursday…Back to Blogging

The extended blog silence over the last couple of months wasn’t planned…but life has a way of changing things up. But I’m ready to get back to these pages and exercise the writing muscle more. So, as I join up with the “newish” Three on Thursday link-up, I’m sharing three plans for upcoming blog posts as I get back to writing.

  1. The world has shifted since the death of my Dad in early August – and as we move forward, I’ve been putting into words the story of the amazing week of Dad’s hospitalization, passing and celebration service and that needs to be shared.
  2. Before going silent, I had shared the first part of our epic summer sister trip…the parts are queued up and ready to go.
  3. It’s Fall, Y’all! As leaves change and temperatures drop, it’s time for trips to apple orchards, leaf lookin’ and more – today’ I’m heading to the Ville with a Fall Friday planned for tomorrow with Mom & Rebecca.

Joining up with Carole & Kat to share a quick 3 things. This seemed like a good way to dust off the blog and give a quick update.
