our pulp fiction halloween.

No, we didn't party exactly like mia + vincent from Pulp Fiction but we did spend last Saturday night impersonating them. Pulp Fiction is one of Chad's all-time favorite movies, so there was no question that when we put these two characters on the idea list, we would have to find a way to make it work.

Here's something that we weren't expecting: a majority of our crowd having no idea who we were. We were so surprised when we'd say "We're Mia and Vincent!!" to which we'd get "You're who?". So I've gotta ask you, bloggers -- Have you seen Pulp Fiction? (Do you have any idea who we are?) :)

The costume rundown:

On Mia -- black leggings. black cami. white men's dress shirt. black wig. red nails. red lipstick. fake cigarette (thin cigar wrapped in paper) that we didn't smoke. (you're welcome, American Lung Association...and mom.)

On Vincent -- black pants. white men's dress shirt. black tie. black wig. gold clip-on hoop. fake 2.99 gun.

Oh yeah, we did the dance...

I am thankful for...
4. 1st graders. They are hilarious and completely adorable. They make me want to be a teacher tomorrow instead of in a year and a half.
5. Mornings + the feeling of productivity. Feeling like you are rocking the face off of Thursday because you are done with school at 9am instead of 8pm? Yep.
6. Weekends. No work + Chad being done with 16 hour days all week = selfish Amanda. Not letting that hard-working boy out of my sight for two whole days.
7. Parenthood. For giving me Lauren Graham again.

And Eli did, too. I can't believe people didn't know who you were! Did you do the dance barefoot?

Loves it. You looked awesome, and I totally would have known who you were-- and I would have quoted my favorite line "Look at the big brains on Brad!"

I am thankful for Parenthood for giving me Monica Potter back. R.I.P Trust Me. Loved that show.
