Halloween 2016

I am not a crafty person. So, when my older sister texted me a few weeks before Halloween and said, "Katelynne and Kynlee should be a barista and frappuccino for Halloween!" my first instinct should not have been "That's a great idea. I can make their costumes!"

But it was. I blame grief. Grief is strange. Having never really lost anyone close to me, I didn't know how I would handle losing my 3rd niece, Hannah Joy. I found out I handle grief by keeping busy with housecleaning and sewing.

Six yards of felt, one toilet paper roll tube, some wire, and about 93 bloody fingers later, my two nieces had adorable Halloween costumes! I have no tutorial for these costumes. All I can tell you is that I googled "frappuccino and barista costumes for toddlers" and then just kind of winged it. Wung it? IDK. Anyway, if you don't follow me on Instagram, here's how they turned out!



Katelynne's apron was easy: somebody gave me an adult Starbucks apron and I cut it and sewed it down to a toddler size. Katelynne is kind of tiny so it ended up being too big for her, but now she can wear it forever. Kynlee's frap costume was really difficult and I probably won't ever stop bragging about it. Every stitch was done by hand, and I told my sister that she'd better keep it because even if nobody else ever wears it, I want it to be framed.

Halloween also happens to be my younger sister's birthday. This year she turns 26. If you've been around for a while then you remember this post from over two and a half years ago. I'm happy to report that since then, we've become wonderful friends. Maybe one day I'll post about that. She is getting married next year so it's been really fun to share my wedding insight with her. Believe me, I HAVE A LOT.



I learned that a 7 month old and a 3 year old really couldn't care less about being Instagram photo ready. It's kind of infuriating.


But then on Halloween night, my sister got a pretty cute picture of the two of them. I literally told my sister, "I don't even care if Kynlee wears the costume. I just want it back in one piece so I can hang it on my wall."



I was also able to spend an evening with my mom. We had a mini spa night, and used these fantastic L'Oreal face masques that I sweat by. There's a red clay one and a charcoal one and oh. my. gosh. I think they're the greatest things since sliced bread (and if you know of my love for sandwiches then you understand my feelings toward sliced bread).

I took an impromtu picture of myself, my niece Kynlee, and my grandma. I love this picture so much; it represents 3 generations of my family. 



So, there you have it. My random recap of Halloween 2016.

    1. Hello every one my names are Clifford Esther from UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Dr. Believe a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I receive a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that want to contact a spell caster should happily contact Dr Believe now on this email address:authenticspellcast@gmail.com or authenticspellcast@yahoo.com or you can contact him through his website: http://authenticspellcast1.wix.com/authenticspellcaste Call him through his mobile number +2348159740630

  3. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at:( Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ),you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: ( +2348071622464 ),His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
