halloween costumes in gear

so by the picture you can probably guess what stephen and i are going to be for halloween but let me describe how the month is going so far, first.
october is in full swing with already being at my new job for a month, our church moving locations, and keeping up with homemaking and school. i wish the ideal 1950's situation was true in which i stayed home and cleaned, shopped and cooked all day...but with both of us working....i'm really surprised how tidy we actually keep our apartment. i'm thankful everyday i have a husband who helps me even when i don't ask. i love how we work together in the kitchen and tag team the rooms and clean the apartment fairly quickly. and he does a pretty darn good job too. not like the usual husbands that huff and puff with the "i work all day" so they can't help out around the house. but with school, work, bible studies and family time, things are busy around here at the pardini's but nevertheless we are blessed and enjoying life as a young marrieds.
so with halloween coming soon i started thinking about if stephen and i wanted to dress up. we have hardly any friends so we doubt we'll get invited to a halloween party or anything but we wanted to dress up because we didn't get to last year. ( stephen was working an odd ball job and was working the night of halloween ). so we'll dress up and maybe take my sister and her friend around the neighborhood and also give us grown ups a chance to score some teeth rotting candy.i started looking at couples costumes...some were stupid and some were just horendous! but i went to disneyland the other night and got inspired... the disney movie ratatouille came to mind and i had to laugh because this was the very movie i always teased stephen about because he looks exactly like the main character. what do you think?
so ( drum roll ) we will be linguini and collette from ratatouille! at the costume stores in our town the chef coats were about $40 and the hats between $10-$15 or something. we never got them though because they were never in our size or they were out of stock but luckily we didn't buy them because i found them online for much cheaper. on an actual professional cooking website ( go figure ) they were selling chef coats for $15 and hats for $5. praise God we didn't buy them at the costume store! anyways, thanks to my mom for telling me to look online for a toy remy ( the rat from the movie ) to put in stephen's pocket as part of the costume..because i would have never started looking for the other stuff online. so mom saved the day and our wallets from screaming from crazy over priced costumes. it will be alot of fun and i can't wait to celebrate our first halloween as a married couple. we still have a ways to go but i'm just excited. have a great start to the work week!
