costume hunting

 
foy's in fairborn is our favorite costume shopping haunt. and it's a tradition to visit a few times a year (it's open year round...a whole block of costume shops and a diner and a 5 and dime!)

we went there last night to start hunting max's costume for halloween this year.
without fail, every year he changes his mind about a million times..so far this time around there have been talks of a robot to justin "beaver" (a beaver in a purple sweat jacket and cockeyed hat?) to an army guy.

i tried talking him into the abraham lincoln costume last night but he just kept holding up the bloody and terrible zombie garbage truck driver costume.
i clearly don't know much about 8 year old boys...haha


luckily, we settled on him being a jailbird...

happy happy weekend, friends.
xoxo

  2. Your man's beard is epic, my husband has a tiny one compared to his! Love the jailbird idea, too cute. My baby is going to be a shark, thanks to his daddy's idea. ;)

  7. Good choice! Although the Justin Beaver one would have been pretty funny.

  11. What a fun trip! And that costume is beyond adorable! And don't worry, having grown up in a family made almost entirely of girls, I can't say I know too much about little boys either haha

  22. How do you get your hair to look so beautiful? I couldn't do that on the best of days, and now I have a baby the same age as little Bee, I'm lucky if I even drag a brush through my hair in the morning!

  23. I used to live in Fairborn! (Now I live near Newport, KY.) I LOVED Foy's. Seriously one of the coolest places in central/south western Ohio. Did you know that Lou Ferrigno made an appearance there this past weekend? I wanted to make a trip out there to see the Hulk more than I want most things.

  24. We have been looking and looking for a great "monster" store as my son calls it! So glad you posted about Foys. We will be going this week! :) It was so gorgeous this weekend too, perfect for fall-type things.

  25. This looks like a really cool place. I'd settle for my kid choosing any costume that can be purchased in a store. She's decided on a purple panda bear (She's 2.5). I guess this mama better get to sewing!
