January Half–Tinker Bell

I started the year out in style with the Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.  This time last year I was running my first ever half marathon.

I love the runDisney programs.  They put on a well-supported, well-volunteered, fun race.  The race medals are impressive, to say the least.

I ran most of the race with my girlfriend from New York running in her first ever half marathon.  Another girlfriend of mine spent the weekend with us, but we she is crazy fast and crossed the 10K marker well before we even hit the 5k.

We dressed as PNK sisters from Monster’s University.  I LOVE dressing up.


Outfit components:

Champion Sports Bra

Champion Cheerleading Shirt (which I bought in the girls’ section at Target—I can’t believe my boobs fit in it)

Nike running shorts

Pink feather boa tu-tu skirt

pink furry leg warmers

Bondi band

Pink wig

Exercise your right to vote

Ok Friends,

Race season is kicking off soon and we are having a bit of a difficulty deciding on a costume.  First it was because of a lack of ideas.  I’ve somehow managed to overcome that obstacle.  The Hubs even came up with a few.

But now we need input regarding recognizability, creativeness, and overall awesomeness.  Hold on to your hats, this is about to get good.

Costume Idea 1: Holy Hand Grenade

I'm from a movie

The guy on the right carries coconuts.

Costume Idea 2: Chris O’Donnell quote from Batman Forever

Not sure how to make a costume look rusty

This line is the only thing I remember from Batman Forever. In fact, the Hubs thought I made it up.

Costume Idea 3: Beyonce named her baby Blue Ivy.

The Ivy is dressed like Poison Ivy, from Batman

One person to be blue, one to be Ivy. OR one person could be Blue Ivy, and we can dress up as another celebrity baby. Apple, Blanket? So many possibilites

Costume Idea 4: Name needed

Witch doctor

The witch can or cannot be painted green; doctor props optional

Costume Idea 5:  This is the Hubs Idea; disclaimer needed.

Costume Idea 6:  Another Idea of the Hubs, but I did laugh.

Um, yeah.

Costume Idea 7:  Juicin’ Cows

We might would make some modifications to the milk carton.

So, what do you think?

When picking your favorite, you should consider the following:

  • Can I run in this?
  • Can I ride a bus in this?
  • Is this original/creative etc.
  • Do I get the reference, etc.
  • Any other factors…

Please feel free to use any of these costumes in the race in your city, but let’s coordinate so we don’t show up to the same race in the same costume!

And the sewing

No, I haven’t forgotten.  I am supposed to showcase my sewing.  The hubs gave me a serger for my birthday, so I really do have to start working on something now.  I have three projects on my list.

Project 1:  Dog treat bag.  Ola and Luna really want one of these. 

Project 2: Rapunzel  I’ve been wanting to build her style of dress for a long time.  Wouldn’t this be a great costume?  I think the hardest part will be the hair…

Project 3: Tribute to NCIS’ Abby.  As you can see, Star Fyre Enchantment has successfully tackled this project, and I plan to be next.  When I last watched the episode, Under Covers, I knew I wanted to build it.

So, I think these projects will keep me pretty busy.  I will, of course, share with you as progress is made.  What do you think?  Are these projects too ambitious?
