Rick and I have been trying to figure out our Halloween costumes.

I was set on us going as Danny Zucco and Sandra Dee from Grease. I went out and bought a poodle skirt.  But I felt sort of frumpy.

I did once dress up as slutty Sandra Dee (you know, at the end of the movie) where we young girls all learned that if you dress like a whore, you will finally get your man. I wore a black leotard, matching tights and my grandmother’s short, curly wig. I was eight. And I looked ridiculous.

And everyone thought I was a senior citizen cat.

I think Grease is off the table.

I texted Rick another costume idea… Charlie Sheen.

Except I accidentally texted this genius idea to our contractor.

I can only assume that come Monday, our contractor will be putting in our kitchen cabinets while dressed like this…

I’m absolutely sure the painters will go as his goddesses.

But then I shifted gears again because I was able to borrow a go-go girl outfit. I thought it would be perfect if Rick went as Austin Powers.

Me: You can be Austin Powers!

Rick: Ah… Ok

Me: And I’ll be one of those sexy go-go girls he hangs with or something. I can’t really remember the movie. But I know I remember a go-go girl.

Rick: I never saw the movie.

Me: Well, trust me – Austin Powers is HANDSOME.

Unfortunately, a quick google of “Austin Powers costumes” quickly brings this up…

Maybe handsome is not exactly the most apt description.

More ruggedly retro.

Rick has vetoed Austin Powers.

To be continued…

    go to interest and put in best couples costume — my pin will come up of deer ( rick in antlers) caught in the headlights — you in black with reflective tape down the middle ( like a blacktop road) and two shiny things (where you would guess) and you can hold up a deer crossing sign. tacky but funny and simple.

    Laughing, laughing, laughing! I’ve been reading your posts since I heard about Anna’s and Glennon’s blogs and have been addicted ever since.

    Thanks for making me laugh–often out loud from the gut!

    We’re dressing up as the cast from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Check it out on YouTube if you haven’t seen it! NPH plays Dr. Horrible. My husband is going to be Captain Hammer (because he already owns the shirt), I’m going to be Penny, and our dog is going to be Dr. Horrible. The next night we’re going to a made-up superhero/supervillain party as Pale Boy and his archnemesis: The Sun.

    My hubby and I had a hard time with our costume this year…he wanted to be Russel Brand and me Katie Perry but I vetoed the whole cupcake bra thing. Now he’ll be a moose and I’m going as Sara Palin with a hunting rifle…I already own a suit and the wig was cheap. Good Luck 🙂

  • You can go as Roxie and your husband can go as the lawyer, Billy ( I think) from Chicago. I always thought that would be a fun duo to dress as. Too bad I’m too lazy and will be wearing my Halloween T-shirt . . . again.

    Happy Halloween Folbaums! I know whatever you ended up with you looked fantastic. I dressed up as cat in the hat but the twins would not get on board with being thing 1 and thing 2. Looking forward to seeing pictures of what you and Rick decided. xoxo
