So I’m still trying to come up with a Halloween costume. Thus far, my options are to be either a grape popsicle, Grimace or Prince. You might wonder about these odd choices, but see, I really need to come up with a reason to buy this pair of purple skinny jeans. I can’t really justify buying these for everyday wear, since I doubt those are going to fit the dress code at work. Which is why I have to validate the purchase by using them as part of my costume. I simply must have them, since they’re a whopping 70% off at True Religion, and that is just too good of a treat to pass up.
I just ordered this “unwelcome” mat for my front porch. Not only should it suffice for keeping trick-or-treaters away so that I can keep all the candy for myself; but it will also come in handy when a zombie outbreak hits for real, which I am fully convinced will happen someday. And even if I’m wrong about that, it’s okay, because it shipped for free from Blair with code BPHQ. But you’d be wise to take my advice and start stockpiling canned goods and sharp objects just in case. Better safe than walker meat. Deal expires: 10/31.
Just in case that doormat doesn’t do the trick, I’m going to hang this bat banner across the porch, too. It was a wise investment, since it was up to 50% off at Pottery Barn, and I have to make the house look as creepy and forbidding as possible. Like I said, there’s no way I’m just going to give away all those Kit Kats and Starbursts. If any little creatures do brave their way up to my door, they’re getting all those leftover yucky black & orange peanut butter thingies from Halloweens past. Now that is scary.
My kids are so hard on their clothes and shoes. It seems like every time I do laundry, things are either ripped or so stained that I just end up throwing them out. And the other day, my son informed me that there was a hole in his shoe. Upon investigation, that was putting it mildly. There wasn’t much left between his feet and the pavement. Now, I don’t know how long he’s been wearing those to school that way, but I’m feeling pretty lucky that child protective services hasn’t shown up at my house yet. Perhaps I ought to spend a little less time feeling glad that my kids are finally old enough to get themselves dressed and off to school and a little more time examining what they actually look like when they leave. Anyway, I immediately ordered him this new pair of Kobe Mentality 2 basketball shoes, while I was able to take an extra 20% off the sale price at Nike with code BONUS20. So that embarrassing situation won’t happen again. At least for another couple of weeks.
I am totally into flannel shirts these days for casual Fridays. They’re comfy and the perfect look for fall, in my opinion. Last week I wore this popover plaid version, which I scored for 30% off by using code SPOOKY at J. Crew Factory. Someone told me that I reminded him of a lumberjack, but I’m pretty sure that he meant that in a good way. Right?
