Happy Halloween!

At the school I'm student teaching at all the teachers surprised the students and dressed up in costumes for Halloween. The students loved it and it was so fun to dress up. I was...dun dun dun LUCILLE BALL from I Love Lucy!

I chose Lucy not only because I have red hair (and plus I love Lucille Ball) but also because I didn't want spend anything (poor college student and all that) and I had everything at home to do this costume. I was afraid at first that none of the kids would have ever seen I Love Lucy or even know who Lucille Ball was, but I was pleasantly surprised that pretty much all the kids recognized who I was.

  26. You are such a cute Lucille Ball! My husband and I have only recently started dressing up for Halloween, and it's SO much fun! The hardest part for me is coming up with something that I know everyone will "get." This year, I was a Hipster Panda and my husband was the Mad Hatter. I think it come off pretty well...blogged here if you want to see:
