Halloweeeeeeeeeen!

We are having a costume party here in the office today.  There are only two of us.  And we're having a contest. 


{I am Pumpkin Head}
..And yes, that is a torn open bag of candy that I got into...
...And yes, I am pregnant...

And Meghan...
Is a ghost.

We're taking votes.

The winner will take this beauty home:


No, I'm just kidding.  I'm not giving Meghan my dog. 

But the winner will get THIS:


Happy Halloween!!  Feel free to cast your vote in the comments section.


xoxo, Lauren

ps-

Are you really pregnant?? You can't just slide that in there if you are! :)

Happy Halloween!!

Brooklyn2Burbs said...

That's hilarious! And Meghan should get a raise for being able to work with a sheet covering her face.

Sarah said...

Wait you're pregnant?!!!! If so that is the most sly announcement ever!

And if you aren't, I'm pretty sure Bryn and I are the first of 6000 to ask after that post :P

Lauren said...

xoxo,
lauren

AnneHH said...

Christen D. said...

Yay, baby! I just love following your blog for all kinds of tips, ideas, motivation and warm fuzzies. (Especially since my own marriage this summer and finding out we have a baby on the way, as well!) While BOTH costumes are really quite extraordinary, I have to vote for the Pumpkin Head. :-)

Thanks for all the wonderful posts!

Mary said...

I'm not gonna lie ... the sheer simplicity of Meghan's approach draws my vote. May I suggest cutting holes for the eyes? It still would look very old school.

Thanks for the fun,
Mary

pve design said...

3 is a great number! I hope it is a girl.

Congrats to you, Lauren!!! So excited for you and your family!

Brenda said...

The majority of greats throughout history in design and fashion always seem to have a sense of style simplicity hence Meghan has my vote. I can see the love, effort and style that her costume exudes - bhahaha!

Wives said...

OMG LAUREN! You're preggers?!? CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS. So happy for you. And thinking your lovely complexion and hair is due to fall on a little beautiful girls' face this time around :)

I vote for the ghost. Must be pretty talented to type and wear that.

They're all beautiful...first I was thinking the fern star in moss, but then I was captured by the ticking stripe in aqua. I've always loved a ticking stripe.

Your site is so beautiful...sometimes I can't look because it makes me wistful and sad. And sometimes I get inspired.
