Last-Minute Costumes: Pineapple and Strawberry

Hey Cats!

I have always loved dressing up, whether its for Halloween, spirit days, date parties, or you know, Wednesday. However, I always wait until the last minute to get my costume together, and there have been a couple of times where I just ended up wearing cat ears. As per usual, I waited until the week of Halloween to decide on my costume, but this time I actually made something! My bestie and I decided to be a pineapple and a strawberry. I found the idea while scrolling through Instagram, and it was so cute and looked so simple to make.

Also: my face. I usually cut my face out when I take mirror selfies, but obviously I had to get the bow in. It makes me feel awkward to take selfies of my actual face, so this is what I have to offer you. Bye.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Pineapple:

-1 oversized yellow t-shirt

-black puffy paint

-green bow

Strawberry:

-1 oversized red t-shirt

-white puffy paint

-green bow

Here’s what you do:

First, be sure to put a piece of newspaper inside your t-shirt. This will keep the paint from bleeding through and causing the shirt to stick together!

For the pineapple, simply draw rows of inverted V’s across the entire shirt and the sleeves, like the picture!

For the strawberry, simply draw teardrops haphazardly. You can fill them in if you’d like, but it looks just as good if you don’t!

Also, I was going to make a headpiece of some sort out of green construction paper, but then I found these green spirit bows at HobLob, and as every retired cheerleader knows, DO NOT EVER pass up the opportunity to wear a spirit bow. You will regret it.

These shirts took me maybe 5 minutes each to paint, and cost less than $5 for the entire costume. Pair the tees with black leggings and riding boots and you’re ready to go! This is a great idea for Halloween, date parties, big-little reveal, or any other occasion where you need a cheap but creative costume.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!

That’s all for meow!

Recipe- Cream Cheese Strawberry Breakfast Sliders

Hey Cats!

Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I’m not really sure why, but I’m extra tired this week- I’ve taken a nap after work both Monday and Tuesday- yikes! Definitely going to make sure that doesn’t happen today!

Remember how I said I acquired a sourdough baguette when I went home for my birthday? Well, I found another delicious use for it this weekend, this time for breakfast. I wanted to make French toast with it, but I failed to buy both eggs and milk this week, so that was out of the question. I took inventory of my fridge Saturday morning, and came up with a new fave- strawberry cream cheese sliders!

Here’s what you’ll need:

-1 sourdough baguette (not all of it, unless you’re feeding an army…or a family)

-Cream cheese (I like the whipped kind)

-strawberry jelly

-butter (I use Land o’ Lakes spreadable)

Here’s what you do:

1. First, slice the baguette. Mine was pretty skinny, so my slices were a bit thicker. I used a serrated knife to make it a little easier.

2. On one side of an even-numbered amount of bread slices, spread a layer of cream cheese.

3. On the same number of bread slices, spread strawberry jelly.

4. Sandwich one cream cheese slice and a jelly slice together- repeat until they’re all united in holy breakfast matrimony.

5. Spread a thin layer of butter on each side of each sandwich

6. Place three or four sandwiches at a time in a non-stick skillet over medium heat, and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until brown and crispy.

7. Enjoy!
