Favorite Couple Costume!


Last week, Justine, over at Almost There, posted her favorite Halloween costume. I loved the idea so much, I figured I should share mine with you. It all goes back to Halloween 2006. My hair was longer, and darker due to an unfortunate mishap I had trying to dye it myself. Ryan and I had been dating a month and a half, and somehow I convinced him to dress up as this crazy couple (this was at the height of the T.C. insanity). Enjoy!

Ahhh the days when Tom was jumpin' on couches, Katie was always sporting glasses and turtleneck sweaters, and everyone questioned whether or not the child was really theirs. I think we captured the spirit pretty well...





One of my roomies recommended we pose like the oh so popular Vanity Fair cover:



So, of course we had to...


I'm dying to know, what's your favorite couple costume???

Hahaha!! SO FUNNY!!!! I think that's one of the best costumes I've seen!!!

I'm hoping we'll be pregnant over Halloween eventually so I can be a "Bun in the oven" and Jon can be the baker... Get it?? ;) Haha :)

I just saw a cute one on Facebook that looked easy.. The girl was wearing green and took some ivy garland and wore it and the guy had red spots all over him. Poison Ivy!

One year I was a crash test dummy.

Great look alikes you have there. My favorite couples costume ever was the Sonny & Cher costumes on a Golden Girls episode worn by Bea Arthur and Estel Getty.
