throwback thursday: costume edition

 Inspired by many Instagram and Facebook posts, today I'm throwing it back to Halloween costumes of the past few years. Every year my church holds a Fall Fest, and my friends and I have done several group costumes.  oh, the things you find on facebook. 

Fairy Princess. Osh Kosh B'Gosh pink overalls. Enough said.
2008: Tinkerbell! 

2009: Kellyn makes an adorable superman, and then there's me with a very lame  Zazu, the bird from the Lion King. We also had Scar and a hyena and maybe a few other characters this year. Nice try, but we could do better....
2010: This was my favorite group costume ever. Peter Pan year. Ever costume was homemade. Here you see Rufio, Tinkerbell (reduce, reuse, recycle), Tigerlily, Peter, a pirate, and Captain Hook. This year we had SO many characters. Not included in the photo? Wendy and the crocodile.

2011: This is my favorite photo from the Alice in Wonderland year. We went all out this year too, we had Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum, a bunch of cards, the Mad Hatter, the Red Queen, and the White Queen. 

I'll report back if my costume idea for Fall Fest this year works out like I'm hoping it will. Stay tuned! For now, whether you celebrate Halloween or go the Harvest Party route or celebrate Reformation Day, hope your day is full of apple cider and pumpkin everything, you know the drill.

most productive day ever.

it's my first full day back in NH. normally, I would've just chilled out, but this is what I ended up getting accomplished, bullet point list style:

  • filled out a job app
  • job interview
  • scheduled my first day at job #1
  • drank a really huge water bottle
  • peed in a cup in a slightly sketchy basement for a drug test
  • unpacked tons 
  • job interview #2 
  • got hired... AGAIN. 
  • obligatory Target trip for a new toothbrush etc. 
  • got groceries 
  • more unpacking
So basically, God is awesome. I had both of these jobs sort of lined up, but was so happy that today not just one, but both of them are finally solidified! And it was so easy this time, such an extra blessing because I didn't work all summer. I start training for one job on Saturday, and the other on Monday! It will be hard work and lots of hours, but I am so thankful.
