In a little over a week, kids will be running amock throughout neighborhoods collecting candy (and sugar highs) while their parents chase after them with beers in their hands. At least that’s how it happens in my neighborhood. Some houses even hand out shots for the over 21-crowd making it the best night of the year (especially because it lands on a Friday this time)!
And then of course there’s the raiding the kids’ haul after they go to bed situation. I’m doing it for the kids, people. It’s a sacrifice but I’m up for it.
I’ve noticed a lot of talk on Facebook (my main news source) about how the sexy Halloween costumes are now making their way into the Tween markets. Obviously this is totally inappropriate, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s because they see how their parents are dressing. I vote that no adults should dress sexy for Halloween anymore! Down with skin! Up with no appeal!
So with out further ado, I bring to you the most UN-SEXY COSTUMES THAT WILL ARRIVE BY HALLOWEEN:
With Halloween around the corner(ish) there’s been an ample amount of conversation about costumes with my kids. My 4 year old has adamantly decided that she wants to be Jake, Jake from State Farm this year—not a princess, ballerina or Frozen character. She wants to be Jake wearing khakis and a red State Farm polo (this gives all of you a little insight into my daily life). And to get into character she now has us calling her Jake throughout the day. It’s going to be a loooong 6 weeks until Halloween. coach online outlet
Of course, I love how independent and clever my baby girl is and will do anything to support her dream of becoming Jake. So yesterday I did what any mom would do and I went straight to the source. The following email exchange occurred between State Farm and myself. You can’t make this stuff up.

My hilarious 4-year-old daughter wants to be “Jake from State Farm” for Halloween. I can’t find any red State Farm Polos for kids on your website. Is this something I can order? Thanks!

Thanks for responding. We only need one though. Do you sell iron-on logos by any chance?
