I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend! I definitely did. This was the first Halloween that I fully enjoyed my costume. Originally, I thought of going as a hot dog (in my case, a veggie dog) or a banana (two of my favorite store-bought costumes) and then maybe as Lady Gaga (the non-meat dress kind) but then I came up with a brilliant idea! Why not go as a can of PBR? I could make my own costume- which offers so much more personal satisfaction than just buying one; I wouldn't look like a ho- which is often the case with store bought costumes; and I could go as my favorite libation. Wins all around.
So I took a little trip to Hobby Lobby and with the help of my sister and brother-in-law, I managed to turn several pieces of foam, some glitter glue, and half a yard of silver lamé into a can costume...
Brand loyalty at its finest.

I got a lot of great feedback on my costume. Even some homeless people in Boulder appreciated it! I think this might be my Halloween costume for the next 10-15 years...ha, okay, maybe not, but I really loved it! I went out Friday and Saturday night and spent some time with some great people. It was a nice break from school and work, but now it's back to business! Just three weeks left of class and Tuesday is election day so work is getting hectic. Don't forget to go out and vote!
