My Favorite Halloween Costume Yet!

Posted on


First off, a quick update on my foot! Today I got a second set of xrays taken on the doctor’s request, as I’m still in quite a bit of pain when I move my toes or try to walk. He says the xrays seem to be clear, so the doc put me in a walking cast/boot for the next week and a half at least. Apparently that horse got me good and my foot is just taking its sweet time to heal.

In the meantime, this is my daily setup:


Always with a cat nearby to give me some loving! 🙂

Alright, its now time to show off our Halloween costumes! Every year my hubs and I go all out for our costumes, always handmade and we aim for originality. (also usually made using some combination of duct tape and cardboard Smile)

First up, some past years costumes!

  • 2008: Bender and Leela (from Futurama)


  • 2009: Jack Skellington and mine is a fun illusion – being carried in a pot by a witch

  • 2010: Daphne & Shaggy (plus the whole Scooby Doo Gang)




Aaaand that brings us to this year’s costume! I LOVE it cuz it is so much fun, and will definitely do some variation of this again (when my foot is healed – who cares if it’s not Halloween then?!) Smile


  • 2011: Glow Stick Skeleton & Witch!

Here’s with the lights on:


And with the lights off:


And a bit of a dance photo shoot began Smile

Here’s a little video of us practicing our glowing moves (my left leg glowstick wasn’t working at this point–we had to switch it out) **Watch the end–its my favorite part! 🙂


We had a blast dressing up – the only thing to remember is that you need to be in a dark place to really show off the costume. I think ours was shown off best when we were just walking/dancing down the dark street!

Question: What is your favorite costume you saw this year or have ever dressed up as?

NOT Broken!

Posted on

Quick update on my foot:

After my visit with the doctor yesterday, he gave me the news that my foot is NOT broken! Yay!!

It’s just quite bruised and swollen with ‘crush injuries’ he said. So I’ll be using crutches and a splint for a while, then have it in a walking boot for a couple weeks until it heals up. So, although had actually psyched myself up to look forward to getting a pretty bright cast, this is much better and easier!

Minor Setback

Posted on

So I’m pretty lucky I had my photoshoot for all my products the other day, because I had a minor setback yesterday at work. It involved a very large, excited horse and my poor right foot. And let me just say that the horse definitely won..

  • This was about 5 minutes after being stomped on, I could barely get my boot off!



  • After visiting the urgent care I got a new pair of crutches and a pretty splint. Today I’ll find out the official diagnosis from the radiologists, but the doc said its most likely broken :/

  • Feeling a bit crappy at the end of the day, all I wanted was some loving and so my boys all piled on me for a good cuddle session! Smile

On the plus side, I guess this means I’ll have more time to blog while I’m stuck on the couch recovering! I just feel a bit helpless and reliant on the hubs, especially since this is the first bone I’ve ever broken!

I’ll be back later for a quick update after I see the doc, wish me luck!
