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?
Haha. You guys are so funny.ReplyDelete
I liked the idea of switching places. I though it was creative (and cost effective too).ReplyDelete
Love it Camber! You guys looked awesome. I would advise against Isaac starting med school too, no matter how good he looked in those scrubs (and they did suit him so well!) Mark started right after college and still won't be done with residency until he's 34!ReplyDelete
You guys are so funny. We miss hanging out with you. Why can't you move to Nevada?ReplyDelete
I loved the idea! It was genius!! And the cupcakes were amazing!ReplyDelete
haha! Dave and I dressed up as each other last year and it was so wierd. Dave's pants (my pants) were way too tight on him and I looked like a ganster in a white Dr. coat. You guys look legit. That is a cute cupcake.ReplyDelete
