Gather some green or purple balloons and attach them to your shirt.  Works best if your shirt is the same color or just wear all black underneath.

Since it’s a school-day/work day, wear your office shirt and tie, throw on a red cardigan and suddenly you become Mister Rogers.


Have an old green sweater with a couple of holes in it? Find those green pipe cleaner from your kid’s leftover school project, poke holes in sweater with pipe cleaner and create spikes, you’ve got yourself a cactus costume.

Rosie had us inspired!! Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday of the year! And this year, my little lady gets to join me in all the fun!! This was a really super busy and tougher week for us hence the lack of posts (sorry!!). Every woman and mother has those tough days, weeks, months. Where it seems like we have more on our plates than we can handle! But we have to roll up our sleeves, put our hair up, and push through!! We are all so strong, stronger than we even think we are sometimes. Remember, as Rosie says, we can do it!!! 💪🏽 Hoping you all have had an amazing week. I can wait to see your costumes! What is everyone dressing up as and your little ones?! We have a few more costumes and Halloween fun still to come!!! Can’t wait to show you!👻 🎃 🧟‍♂️ #halloweenobsessed #givemeallthecandy #momcommunity #momclub #rosietheriveter #girlpower
