There are several things I LOVE in this world and today I am going to share two.

1

........... dressing up

2

............. all things Disney

I absolutely love dressing up.... I don't know why it is, but being able to transform into someone else for a night is so much fun for me!This year has by far been my favorite outfits yet!

Lately I have been so extremely busy with working full time and going to school full time that I didn't have much time to fully make my costume as I have been able to in the past.  However I am extremely pleased with how well my costumes turned out thanks to frequenting Saver's!

Well, it is now November 1st which means we made it through another Halloween! I hope you all had a supercalifradulisticexpialidocious holiday with your ohana as I did mine.

Enjoy!
