It's always a struggle to come up with a good group Halloween costume theme for me and my roommates. In the years past we went as the three blind mice and then the Spice Girls. But this year I decided that I just wanted to go as something that would include an outfit that is comfortable and warm.

I started looking online for some ideas about what I could convince my friends to dress up as and I came up with the idea to dress up as counting sheep.

Making a sheep costume has been pretty easy. I bought some sweatpants and a sweatshirt. I can't decided if I want to bother putting cotton batting or balls on it to make it look better. But I might just stick a number on the costume. I think my roommates are glad that I chose something that's so comfortable and easy to pull off, especially in comparison to the Spice Girls! I think that they'll never forgive me for that idea after they had to walk around in platform shoes and short skirts on a cold Halloween night.

  1. I love this idea of pretzels! And I'm excited for my kids to get a little older like yours and be able to really enjoy this kind of thing. At 3 and 1, it's still a blast, but sometimes they don't quite get it! :-) Maybe it's the way I present it. Anyway, glad I found you through the Mom Loop Hop. I hope you'll head over to my site too at

  2. The sheep idea is hilarious. Love it! Many years ago, my friends and I went as the fruit characters from the Fruit of The Loom underwear brand. I was the grape, and my balloons kept popping all night long!
