A Little Bit of Steampunk – Halloween 2017

Standard

Y’all, I haven’t blogged in almost 2 years.But it’s Halloweentime, so Imma put up some pics. This year we decided to go steampunk. If you don’t know what steampunk is {I’ve learned a lot of people don’t know what steampunk is}, think Victorian era fashion meets utility and gadgetry. Or something like that. There’s probably a wikipedia page if you want to know more.

So we started with just “steampunk” and then Boy Numero Dos wanted to be a chemist, and then we all ended up with some kind of a caricature to draw inspiration from for our costumes. So here we are, in all our gears and glory {trying out the slideshow feature for the first time}.

We had a lot of fun {and put in a lot of time} coming up with these costumes! They look simple but all of the little details really add up. Steampunk might end up being one of our favorite costume themes. We’re trying to figure out where else we can wear them because it’s so much fun! Do you do couple/family/group costumes for Halloween? What has been your favorite? Share in the comments!

Pin Love

Standard

Today I feel like sharing a few of my favorite pins that I’ve found in the past week or so. It may become a regular thing. Or not. {PS – the photos are links back to the pin if you want to click on them.} Enjoy!

I’m thinking we’ll try dying eggs like this tonight. I’m sure the kids will LOVE it!

Instructions for Volcano Colored Eggs: Mix together a tbsp of baking soda, couple tsps of water and some food coloring. Now, grab your paint brushes and begin painting your eggs. Then pour vinegar it on top of the egg & watch the “volcanic eruption” take place.You can repeat steps 2, 3, & 4 over & over until you’re ready to move onto another egg. Lastly, pat off any excess vinegar or simply let them air dry.

If this is true, it’s awesome! Someone go to a Disney park and come back to tell us if it works! {Better yet, take me with you!}

If you yell “Andy’s coming!” in front of Buzz or Woody at a Disney park they will stop what they’re doing and drop.

Oh how I want this tub. Times 1000.

The Tub I Really Really Would LOVE in My Bathroom

I loved reading this article (and more on the blog too!) and have decided to take on the challenge of not yelling at my kids. Starting small over here with just a month long goal. Had to start over today because yesterday was…unsuccessful.

10 things I learned when I stopped yelling at my kids. Great parenting and relationship read.

And last but not least:
