So, do I take the plunge, or not?
I need to send my my registration ASAP since the spots are almost full. I'm leaning towards yes, there is just that little voice inside me that is second guessing....
In other news, I can't believe Halloween is only two weeks away! It seems like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas. I've known what Aliyah would be since the day after Halloween last year. Disney Store has awesome costumes, but I just can't spend full price (near $50 for some) on something that will be worn for a few hours. So I hit up the clearance sales, most of the costumes are half price.
I found a lovely little Alice in Wonderland costume last year for about $15. Considering Aliyah is blond-haired and blue-eyed it goes perfectly. I'll just add a black headband, white tights, and black shoes and she is good to go!
Best part about it? I get to be the Cheshire Cat! I still need to do a search for my costume elements (purple ears and tail, etc.) but I know I'll have fun with it. I just love Halloween, you get to dress up and go a little crazy, and you can actually be complimented for being bizarre. Plus, I think it's fun to tap into that darkness that is inside each of us, if only for a little while.
I was Googling (is that a word?) for Cheshire Cat ideas earlier and came across these really awesome illustrations that I thought I'd leave you with:
