Umpa Lumpas and Alice in Wonderland

Friday, my boss approached me and asked if I was going to use any of my vacation near the holidays. I said, "Yes, I would like to take the whole month of December off, please." She laughed and mumbled "you wish" under her breath.

But it got me thinking. Is it seriously time to start considering December already? Should I start Christmas shopping on Amazon already? Then I realized that Wednesday is September! Freaking September! That means almost fall. And I absolutely L-O-V-E fall. Fall means almost Halloween and Halloween is one of my favorite days of the year. I am stoked to get all dressed up and hit up all the Halloween parties. Not to mention going to the Haunted Houses and Haunted theme parks.

Boyfriend and I discussed our costumes this year and I absolutely want to go as Alice.

And I want him to go as the Mad Hatter.

But of course, he wants to go as Willy Wonka. And not the Johnny Depp Willy Wonka but the original Gene Wilder Wonka.

I swear if he tries to get me to dress up as an Umpa Lumpa, I am going to seriously reconsider his feelings for me.

Matching costumes may be out of the question this year. Oh and look what I found searching for Umpa Lumpas.

Hahaha. Love it.

Have any good costumes ideas? Any previous Halloween experiences worth sharing?

Have an awesome Sunday!

I think Alice/Mad Hatter is a great couple Halloween idea! I can understand a guy wanting to do Willy Wonka though. I want to talk the hubs into doing Beetlejuice and Lydia (with Lydia in the red wedding dress). Or Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell.

I love Halloween! One year me and the hubs were both beer mascots (and we made our costumes): he was Duffman and I was the Miller High Life Girl. This year he's gonna be Thomas Magnum (from Magnum, PI) and I'm gonna be Higgins (he's 6'4" and I'm 5'4"...should be hilarious)! I really want to go as Kang and Kodos one year...I'll probably have to start making those costumes in January!
