I love Halloween! But who doesn’t?!
Except I feel like I should clarify by saying I love cute Halloween. I absolutely despise freaky decorations, scary costumes, haunted houses, etc. Watching Nightmare Before Christmas and maybe, just maybe another mildly scary movie is as spooky/scary as I get. Instead of scary stuff, I like dressing up as a Disney character (that was always a must growing up and I plan on carrying on that rule), painting pumpkins, Halloween crafts and DIY projects, cute decorations, seeing little kids dressed up and seeing them strut their stuff because they know they are the coolest kid in the world in their costume and so on and so forth.
This Halloween has snuck up on us a little bit. We usually plan some really cool couples costume, but this year we’ve sort of let that tradition slip through our fingers. Sadly, I’m not even entirely sure that both Wild Man and I are dressing up. We have costumes in mind that my momma has, but we will see if we end up wearing them or not. Don’t you worry, if we do, you’ll surely see a post about it.
However, I couldn’t let a Halloween pass by without showing off the last two years of costumes Wild Man and I have had as a married couple.
In 2013 we were Belle and Gaston (from Beauty and the Beast). My incredibly talented, creative, awesome mom made these costumes. Also, please notice Wild Man’s awesome hair piece in the back. You can’t be Gaston without his ponytail!
In 2014 we were Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (also made by momma). What made these costumes even more special to us was that we went to Mickey’s Halloween Party in Disneyland and got so many compliments on them. People would even stop us to take our pictures. Its the closest to celebrities we’ve ever been – and it was pretty fun. Plus we looked cute. And that Wild Man makes one fiiiiiine Flynn (heart eyes!!)
Have a fun, safe Halloween – and since I still can’t have sugar, eat LOTS of candy for me!!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween, pumpkins scream in the dead of night. This is Halloween, everybody make a scene, trick or treat till the neighbors die of fright. Its our town, everybody scream. In our town of Halloween…” -Nightmare Before Christmas
