Queen Elsa (Round 3) 


Busted out Elsa & Olaf again this year. It’s become a tradition now! But hey- we won best costume at our church party, so that was fun.

Okay so I love Halloween- Well, I love any chance to celebrate, but I love dressing up. I probably learned that from my older brother, San, who also loves dressing up. 

The coolest thing happened this year- I made a BuzzFeed article for last year’s costume. Check out #11 on the article here!

Well, Nick and I tried to find something creative, but in the midst of starting a new job and Nick starting school, we just didn’t have a ton of extra time to come up with something. It took us 3 hours to find a half a costume. Oh well, hopefully next year we will be more settled and do something creative!

Happy Halloween!

I hope y’all had a great Halloween! We went over to my work because Southwest Airlines knows how to throw a mad party. Then we worked all day. At night, we watched one episode of Stranger Things… and then a Gilmore Girls so I wouldn’t be too scared. 

Also, tonight we are making dinner in a pumpkin because we didn’t have time last night, & I’m so excited. I love holidays and traditions and celebrating! Speaking of, Thanksgiving is coming up and I’m stoked.

Xoxo,
