Halloween What?

Hello out there in blog world! So, what's going on with you guys? It seems like I'm forgetting something....oh that's right! I almost forgot that Halloween is just around the corner. Geesh! Thank goodness I have an idea for coming up with a costume in a pinch. You must hear about it! 

First, a reminder that, I can be pretty... but, only when I want to be (well, when I'm having a good hair day - naturally curly hair makes for lots of bad hair days, by pure luck my hair looks ok today). Ok, so I was saying...

Mmmmmm, look a chocolate muffin!

What's this? Oh a chocolate chip*! Hey, I have an idea...

...if I put it on my tooth like so, maybe it will look like....
...I have a missing tooth.** HA! Success! And I'm soo scary that Turner can't bare to look at me anymore. Hmmmm, what else could I add to this to make it a full costume?

How about a scarf from the closet, an eye patch (doesn't everyone have an extra eyepatch laying around??), and a hook made out of foil?? Now all I need is pirate talk!
Only a nancy-pants can be keelhaulin' on the treasure chest.
 I shall hornswaggle that reef monkey with my anchor. By the foul bowels of Davy Jones! Arrrrrrggggghhhh!***

 In addition, all I have to do is put on the a white button up shirt (I'm thinking tuxedo style) and some tight, black capri pants, funky tights, well and some jewelry and WALA!! Now, if you find yourself in a pinch you can come up with a costume and everyone loves pirate costumes (and if they don't, they should)!! (Plus, you have an excuse to talk like a pirate the entire night!)

Happy Halloweening everyone!!

Some Halloween Facts:
-Ancient Celts thought that ghosts/spirits wandered the streets on Hallows Eve, because they didn't want to get recognized as human by them, they would wear masks/costumes.
-Halloween is the second most commercially successful holiday, Christmas is the first.

*Any dark foods can be used, i.e. fudge, chocolate cake, etc. They also sell black wax just for this purpose, however I find that food is much more fun - and tasty!

**For Binderclips' sake I feel it should be noted that he hates this post, specifically the pictures of me with the chocolate chip on my tooth. He told me "you're pretty and I don't like seeing pictures of you like that" - which, is actually kind of sweet. That's why I posted a picture of me beforehand - for his sake, just an FYI.

***The pirate quotes above are randomly generated from this site, which I linked to in another post referring to gangsta talk. Check it out!


  1. Ba-hahahahahahaha!!! This is officially my favorite post so far. Is it too late to enter your contest? Because I vote for this one. It's funny and informative! Also, you look really pretty in the first picture. :)

  2. You are cracking me up! I love seeing the transformation from beauty to pirate. Fabulous idea!

  3. Once I had green stuff from pumpkin seeds in my teeth for about 6 hours. That was one of the worst days of my life. The mere thought of spending an evening with a chocolate chip on my tooth... that's like, well... my day yesterday. Maybe I should floss more.

  4. Ohmigod you're adorable! I love the costume! I'm going to be a witch this year!

  6. Like Kiera Knightly you did one film to many in this genera.

    And a bit like the Harry Potter films given a mixed school full of nooks and crannies there is something missing. Where is the damn Parrot.

  7. arrrrrrggghhh u sure you are going as a pirate? :)

  8. TB: Glad you liked it! Thanks for the compliment! I can clean up nicely, when I want to. ;)

    Carolyn: Hehehehe! I do what I can (to crack folks up). Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I will be sure to visit your blog as well. :)

    Traci: LOL! Sounds kind of zombie-ish....the pumpkin seeds stuck in your teeth, could be part of a zombie costume maybe? ;) Thanks for leaving a comment. I plan to visit all the blog gang's posts today and look forward to reading yours. :)

    Susie Kline: Thank you so much! Witches are fun to be too, don't forget your broom! ;) Also, thanks for leaving a comment as I told Traci above I plan to visit all the blog gang's posts today. I was busy with work yesterday and didn't have time to read them. :(

    Cloudia: Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

    Vince: Agreed! BUT, I really enjoy pirates (fake ones, not real ones), and especially love, I can't promise I won't mention them again. Also, I tried to find something around the house that looked like a parrot and couldn't find anything, but good call my friend. A parrot would have been great to have. lol

    Nubilus: Pirate humor!!! I'm a big fan! :D Thanks for becoming a new follower. I've visited your blog and have become a new follower of yours as well.

  9. I still think you look cute! A big wart on your nose might be off putting, but a great smile is always the best accessory, no matter if you are wearing a potato sack or a ball gown. Have a good weekend! - G

  10. haha, you do have a great sense of humor! love the chocolate chip and how it evolved into a costume!

  11. What a cute idea! How hard would it be not to eat that chocolate chip though??

    BTW, you totally guessed correctly on my 5 lies game! I linked to you in my blog today. :)

  12. Why was the kid pirate not allowed into the movie? Because it was Rated "Arrrrrrggghhh".


  13. Happy Halloween!

    I love your chocolate chip smile.

  14. I would have to bring a lot of extra chocolate chips with me because I would just keep eating them.

  15. Georgina Dollface: Thank you! I sure didn't feel like I looked cute! :D But I do agree, a smile IS the best accessory.

    Croatian Latina: Thanks so much! I have been known to do the chocolate chip thing at be warned. ;)

    Kelley: Oh it's incredibly hard not to eat it. BUT, if you find your self in a situation where a weapon is needed I find that the chocolate chip becomes a nice "bullet" (you have to know how to spit like a guy though, which, I shouldn't admit, but I do know how to do). ;)

    YAY!! I'm soo excited that I guessed correctly. Thanks for linking to my blog! :)

    Jen: Thanks! In case you haven't noticed it yet, I'm VERY easily amused. :D

    Whispering Writer: Happy Halloween to you also and thank you! ;)

    Missed Periods: That is one downside of using the chocolate chip method. ;)
