Halloween 2012

I had a slightly better attitude about Halloween this year (you might remember last year's rant) mostly because Mr JP took it upon himself to make sure our costumes weren't thrown-together at the last minute. 

We heard the words "costume contest" and we delivered! My cousin and his cute wife threw a Halloween party this past weekend at their new house and although we only caught the very end of it,  it gave us a good excuse to go all-out with our costumes. 

We were Danny Zuko and Sandy from Grease!
Mr JP grew up watching the movie, and loves it, so I think a childhood dream was fulfilled as he was slicking his hair back. 

sidenote: we decided to be super accurate in our representations of the characters... so that meant a "pink ladies" jacket for me (see below) and a *gasp* cigarette for Mr JP -- BUT NOT TO SMOKE. Danny Zuko always has one behind his ear in the movie... so off to the gas station we went to purchase a pack of cigarettes... and I just about died with mortification/crisis of conscience. 
And the kind cashier helped us out by directing us toward the cheapest brand since we didn't have a clue what we were doing...

Anyways, it was a very successful Halloween. And I don't know if my hair will ever be the same!


  1. You guys are so cute and look great! Girl, how did you get those ringlets? Mine would need like 2 bottles of hairspray to stay for just a couple hours, ha!

  2. Best costumes I've seen in a while!
