Amazing

I'm not quite ready to come back yet (though thank you for your comments last week, this week is going much better), but since I posted a teaser about our Halloween costumes earlier in October, I had to share how the final result turned out. And you guys, it was AWESOME.


They turned out better than I could have expected! I feel like we look like an actual team that could be on the show. And Matt did a great job on the "clue" for us to carry around.

We went to a church Halloween party and had so many people tell us they want to be on Amazing Race so badly. Some people also thought we were hikers, but that's okay (it probably didn't help that I arrived late, and then Matt had to leave early, so half the time one of us was by ourselves).

I also ate two cupcakes for dinner, and that was awesome.

What did you end up doing for Halloween? What was the best costume you saw?

  1. Your costumes turned out so great! E and I love The Amazing Race, so we might have to poach this costume next year. We just carved our pumpkin at home in PJs. I didn't even see very many people in costume. Very low-key this year.

  2. Love the Amazing Race! When we watch it, we always like to pick who does which roadblock. Great costumes!

    1. We do that sometimes! Last week, when they had to build the tepee scales, I was like "Thank goodness we're not on this show, because I would FAIL at this." Matt would do so well though!

  5. Those turned out super cute! Paul and I drank pumpkin beer and made burgers... and that was our halloween. :) Pretty low-key! I've never been a lover of Halloween though.

    1. Sounds relaxing! We didn't do much for Halloween this year either, other than this!
