Have I mentioned how I love Fall? Halloween is just one of the many reasons why I do. This year Sofia has 2 costumes. I took pics of her first, but of course I forgot to bring my computer plus to upload but she looks SO CUTE in her princess outfit! She has a Halloween party to attend tonight and one at 3pm tomorrow where she will wear her Snow White costume. My favorite part about this year’s costumes? The GREAT deals I got.
Earlier this month I went to the LA Kids Consignment event that they have bi-annually I believe. I made out like a bandit with LOTS of clothes for Sofia including her costume that not only looks brand new BUT is great quality. Price? $3.50!! Bought a tiara at the .99 cent store and Pink glitter princess shoes from Target- $9. Costume No. 1 total- about $15. Second outfit for other parties and trick or treating:
I subscribed to Amazon Mom, which give you Amazon PRIME for free for 3 months and got FREE 2 day shipping. I am also a member of a Radio Research Panel which gives rewards in $5 Amazon bucks increments. So the costume came to $9.99. Shoes- $9 and a red headband $1. Total for Costume No. 2- about $20. $35 for 2 costumes for a kid that has 4 (yes FOUR- she is way more popular than I have ever been)events to attend. Plus they will be added to her dress up collection. LOVE it.
My costume, I got via ebay. With ebay it pays to be patient and keep checking in. I have wanted this costime since last year but at it’s normal price, $59.95, I couldn’t justify buying it. So I started my search and bidding in September It paid off…$22.50 final sale-NEW! Plus I had the shoes and the fishnets already…so I will be this:
I haven’t dressed up since 2006! So I am pretty excited not only to dress up, but I will be going to a Halloween party with my friend. SO Yay! I am looking forward to having a blast this weekend, however tiring it may be.
As far as the Chris situation, the update is, well, we ended it. He claims he is just way too screwed up mentally to handle any type of relationship with a female right now, casual or not. He really likes me, and wants to try this whatever again in the future, after he has some therapy. Blah blah. whatever. To my bloggy friend that said dude has some control issues, I think that is obvious- but whether he is hiding something or just has some serious issues, I think staying away from him would be the best solution. I have enough crazy in my life. It sucks cause he was fun, but, better now than later right. Onwards and upwards!
Hope you all have a great Halloween weekend and don’t forget to enter my very FIRST giveaway HERE. Happy Trick or Treating!
