Last year, I worked for weeks on the beloved, and amazing Mr. Peanut Costume:
This year, I'm contemplating two equally as perfect tea-party themed costumes. One political, and one that is perfectly timeless. Sigh... the CHOICES!!! For awhile I had planned on going as Christine O'Donnell a.k.a. "not-a-witch." I decided that it wasn't "global" enough for people to get, and believe-you-me after the Mary-Kate Olsen/Derelicte debacle of 2008, I vowed never to go down that path again. So, that's really the purpose of this post, to talk about how I am struggling between two halloween costumes and how I only have 4 days left to make the one I choose (I should note now, that as of a young age, I have been raised that Emersons make our costumes. This is evidenced by the handmade duck, Miss Piggy, Kermit, Princess riding a horse, "live" Painting, and artist costumes my sisters and I have worn over the years). Regardless of which I choose, I cannot wait to spend it with dear friends in Austin! What are you wearing this year?
