Yes, I, the lady who abhors hearing about pumpkin spice this-n-that, am so ready for Fall to come. I love Fall (but not pumpkin spice). Well, I do like pumpkin spice but not hearing about it for the next three months. I am so looking forward to cooler weather and mugs with hot things inside.
I love wearing my cowgirl boots and stompin' around. I love sitting outside and watching the leaves FALL. So come on, Fall!
I will admit last week when I found out I could wear a Halloween costume at work (I work in a library), I went to the calendar to make sure Halloween was on a day I work. It is!! Then I went home that night and started thinking of costume ideas. I have not settled on any at all. Ideally, I would love to be a book character since I am surrounded by books all day. Right now I'm leaning towards Snow White, Olaf or Mrs. Frizzle, but who knows?
Here are some neat-o ones I found! Some are individual and some are for families/teams!
Fly Guy-all I need is poster board!
Same here! I love the Little Miss/Mr. Men books.
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
AND another version!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Oh my gosh! Cute Slimer dress for a little one!
A book worm! Cute!
