Smell My Feet #SecretSubjectSwap October 2015

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week fifteen brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is: 
Trick or treat?
It was submitted by:  (Thank you so much for such a simple yet complex subject!!)

Trick. Treat. Trick or treat. Such a broad subject. Wow. The first thing that comes to mind is Gigi in her owl costume last year. She was the cutest thing ever. I may be biased, but she was pretty dang cute. This year she will be Minnie Mouse. What will your children be?! I am already thinking about next year. I know, weird. I am seriously going to confess something...

I have never really celebrated Halloween. As I have said before, my dad was not one for really celebrating holidays. I have never really dressed up. I have mostly used a few accessories, but never any amazing costumes. Well, one of my most favorite bloggers DeBie Hive, goes all out in the Halloween costume department. Her entire family wears coordinated costumes. Now, I am not saying the Bergham crew will ever do that, but I am seriously considering coordinated costumes. Well, I am seriously in love with foxes. So, I was thinking Gigi could wear a fox costume, and Chad and I would wear ears and face paint and MAYBE tails. I think It could be cute. This idea came to me while doing my nails last night. 

So, we will see. There is more than a year to decide. I will also admit, that I thought about totally letting her decide. Though, I really want to wait until she is four or five for that. That way if she were to pick something we could not afford or find, she could really understand and we could discuss other options. Plus, since I never dressed up, it is kind of fun to choose her costumes! Another thing I have thought of doing for next year is a shark. She loves sharks and her Dad loves them. I think it could be cute. Plus, Chad could dress as a shark, and maybe I could dress as a wave, and by wave, I mean dress all in blue. Easiest costume ever. 

Gigi went to the safe trick or treating downtown last year, and we visited Bass Pro a few times. Overall it was a successful October. Lots of family fun. I discovered Gigi makes the most adorable owl ever and looks fabulous in orange. This year, we will definitely be going to Bass Pro again. I also plan on going to the safe trick or treating downtown. I think I also want to bring her to a few houses. I am just not so sure. I will definitely let you all know what we do, and I will most certainly share pictures! 

This past weekend, we went to the Pumpkin Fair. It was fun. She rode on her first choo choo train. She was beyond thrilled. She is so in love with trains. I have even considered letting her dress up as Thomas the Train. I bet she would love it! 

So, tell me... What was your best experience with trick or treating? What was your favorite costume you ever wore or that your kids wore?

I have decided to treat you all with some pics from our October last year! I hope you enjoy!

  1. You may not have dressed up much when you were young but Gigi already has some great picture memories and it sounds like you're making some fun future costume plans. Hope you do the foxes!

  2. That owl costume is precious! My kids haven't really mentioned what they want to be this year. I probably ought to ask pretty soon, huh?

  3. Great pictures! I want to go to a pumpkin fair....

  4. I wish I could post some of Evan's and my costumes here in the comments! We go all out!!

  5. I love the fox idea! We have twin grandbabies a boy and a girl and they will be a year old 6 days after Halloween. Their last name is Utter and they are dressing them like little cows this year. I had no idea about Pro Bass though I am going to tell my daughter about that!

  6. Fox idea is great but she is the cutest owl EVER.

  7. Wow -- what a lot of thought you put into the costumes. When I was young I was a bum every year. My kids were ghosts and bunnies -- and everybody else did the same thing. Way too complicated now but a heck of a lot more fun.

  8. Last year, we were all superheros. That was super fun! I adore Halloween!

  9. My husband is really into Halloween. He makes a great Shrek!

    We haven't really nailed down the costumes this year, but we are going to a party, then trick-or-treating, so it will be fun. :)

  10. Such cute and wonderful pics and memories. I need to get a better costume for this year... Halloween means so much more to me now that I have AJ.

Make Jules a Billionaire June 2016 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week twelve brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: You are put on the board of a charity of your choice. What is your cause and why is it important to you? It was submitted by the lovely Karen of Baking in a Tornado.
I would definitely love to be the head of the board on the Make Jules a Billionaire Charity. I would love to get a headstart on lots of fundraisers and really get things rolling. Jules (I) really need to be a billionaire already. I could do so many good things, if I were a billionaire. I could fund orphanages and animal shelters. I could supply villages around the world with clean water and mosquito nets. I could fund medical research for cancers and other horrible diseases. 
If only. If you are interested, let me know in the comments, and I will give yo…

Touched for the Very First Time March 2017 #UseYourWords

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: Tetris ~ Rollerblades ~ Big Hair ~ Rubik’s Cube~ Like A Virgin ~ Neon They were submitted by: Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom(Thank you for the awesome words, Tamara. I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).
