Eeek! I can’t wait for y’all to check out my little bumble bee and ladybug!
I know, I know. You guys are over Halloween and are already spinning Pinterest on its head with Christmas cookies, kids’ Christmas crafts, and ideas for draping Christmas greens from your lighting fixtures. I get it.
But give me a few more minutes of your attention so you don’t miss the cutest bumble bee and ladybug ever! We had such a busy week last week – between the girls’ birthday party (post coming soon), trunk or treat at church, day care parties, after school meetings, and a sick Little One, I couldn’t even dream of trying to get this post up early.
I’ve never cared a whole lot for bumble bee or ladybug costumes…anything to do with a bug, really. I despise bugs. Although I did dress up as a sexy ladybug in college one year.
But when I came across these two rompers on Sparkle in Pink, I knew they would be fabulous for coordinating Halloween costumes. Since both costumes were on clearance in August (score!), I had to hunt down leg warmers for both costumes. Etsy and Gabskia to the rescue!
The fact that these costumes were pretty simple to put on and take off was appealing to me. With a wiggle worm baby and a recently potty-trained toddler, that was important. I had planned to put together a bumble bee costume for myself by placing black stripes of duct tape across a bright yellow shirt, but I never could find a simple yellow shirt. In hindsight, I guess I could have tried to find yellow duct tape and place over a black shirt.
Scooter Britches broke her antennas the day before at her school party, but her handy daddy bought some more springs to repair it.
It was a bit chilly outside on Halloween night so I layered the costumes over black leggings and black long-sleeve shirts.
The sugar was already catching up to this busy bee!
Oh, these two!
My little love bug!
