Holy crap, it’s October.

Thank you, North Carolina, for masking that fact through yet another Indian Summer. You know I’ll never complain about being too hot.

But seriously.

It’s October.

And that means costumes.

And you know how much I love costumes.

Yesterday I braved my one morning with both kids home to tackle the Big Box store strip. Mm hm, Winston-Salem, I’m talking a little HanesMallBoulevard action. I hope you strapped on your shopping shoes, kids, cause we got cat food, a coffee maker, shampoo, and cereal to buy!

Everywhere we went Isaiah noted the displays, and commented, loudly, “What?! Again?! It isn’t even Halloween yet!”

To which I replied, 47 times, “Actually, it basically is.”

And what better way to celebrate than with a little gallery of all my favorite adult dress-up moments (and a few kid moments thrown in for good measure).

It turns out, John and I do costumes for couples with more than just Halloween regularity.

(It turns out I do costumes for free food with more than just Halloween regularity.)

But seriously. If you are in need of some costume ideas, inspiration, or just a reason to be excited about the change in weather and the upcoming loss of an hour of sunlight, this should help.
