I had my son take a bazillion photos of me. In 99% of them my sleeve had blown up in the wind, so they are all off.


In the other 1%, I was blinking, winking, moving or sticking my tongue out. Seriously, I am not a model. 😮‍💨​😒​


So blur your eyes and imagine how great this quick nurse costume would look on you!

That's it!

Do you dress up for Halloween?


I love dressing up and you'll find me dressing up for any excuse I can. I love to dress up for church, parties, themed events, and more!


Here's a little known fact.


Back in like 2007, I sewed and glued and worked on assembling the perfect Carmen Miranda (Chiquita Banana) costume, complete with fruit basket headpiece.


I was planning on wearing it to a church Fiesta party.


On our way to the fiesta, our car got hit by a car that turned left in front of us. 


We never made it to the fiesta...but I got to wear my costume to the hospital instead.


Thankfully no one was badly injured and I can tell this story in a laughable way.


Maybe someday I'll do another Carmen Miranda costume...


Until then, enjoy my last costume of the season--this last minute nurse!
