1) Be cheap, or, preferably, free
2) Require no sewing, gluing, painting, or glitter
3) Require little to no shopping
4) Be comfortable and preferably un-embarrassing (Isaac's request)
And being the ever-resourceful people that we are, we came up with costumes that met all four criteria.
We switched places.
Meet Camber, MBA Candidate, and Isaac, RN.
Isaac said, while I buttoned up his shirt, "You look weird."
So in case I didn't catch it the first time, he repeated it when I got on the suit jacket. "You look weird."
At first I thought he was just referring to the general sagging nature of the suit. Not quite my size.
But before we exchanged our habitual peck after morning prayers, Isaac recoiled.
"I feel like I'm kissing a guy."
Thanks, dear. This was the real reason he thought I "looked weird."
Never mind that I didn't make him wear anything even remotely girly. He looked great in the scrubs. In fact, he enjoyed them so much that we calculated how old he'd be if he became a doctor after his MBA.
Our ward Halloween party was epic, and just for fun, here's the donut-eating contest (photos courtesy of Channa Dalton, who has a far better camera, and let's face it, better camera skills, than I do)
|Isaac lost. But he looked good, and that's important.|
And my Halloween cupcake, because it was the cutest darn thing I've ever eaten.
To conclude it all, the first words Isaac said to me when we got home?
