We Take This Very Seriously.

October 10, 2011

My family takes Halloween very seriously.


We don’t mess around when it comes to costumes.


Even during my most awkward years of life, dressing up was something I looked forward to all year long.


And trick-or-treating still happens at the ripe old age of 25.  The blessing of having neices and nephews to take around trick-or-treating and the sweet souls in my parents neighborhood that still offer me candy because they know I love it so much.

So, here is the DEALIO……

The sis and I are running the Provo Halloween Half-Marathon and we are dressing up big time!! We are hoping to win (the costume contest, not the actual race).

We have our costumes decided on (we are going to be the same thing) but I wanted to play a game with you.

The first person to correctly guess WHAT WE ARE DRESSING UP as will be sent their most favorite treat/candy package ever.  I will tell you once the costume has been guessed but I will not tell you who won because I don’t want to give it away until the race.  If you guess correctly I will email you and ask you for your favorite treats and address……

Get creative:)  Ready, Set, GO!!!

Anyone else already have their costumes picked out?

So girl, I have no awesome guesses on your costumes, but I do think you need to play this game on YumSugar… if anyone needs to win a year’s supply of candy, its you!

giant breadsticks
sour patch kids


Andrea October 11, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Cinnamon and Sugar?!

Peanut Butter and Chocolate?



Cookies and Milk?

Superwoman and Wonderwoman?


Brenda October 11, 2011 at 1:26 pm

Hmm. My guess would be M&M’s- easy costume to find, and who doesn’t love ’em?


christine October 11, 2011 at 1:35 pm

barrel girls from last season of dexter!? (i only guess that because i baked a barrel girls cake last week for the season premier…barbie torsos in cakes baked in coffee cans…)


Alyssa October 11, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Personal Trainers!


Jaeme October 11, 2011 at 1:50 pm

I’m going with Thing 1 and Thing 2. And now I see that the second person that posted guessed that too but I swear I thought of it before I read that! I was planning on doing the Halloween Half but I didn’t sign up because I am so not ready anymore haha. I’ve heard its a blast though, have fun!


Danielle October 11, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I am going to go with umpa loompas…who doesn’t love willy wonka?!


Danielle October 11, 2011 at 2:19 pm

Harry Potter character? Scooby Doo character?


Nicole October 11, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Two peas in a pod? (“Watch out for those two round green things running at us!”)


David October 11, 2011 at 3:27 pm

I have 2 guesses:

1. The Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote
(There was a man dressed up as the Coyote in his driveway at the Akron ‘Road Runner’ Marathon…it was one of the best scenes of the race, for me anyway)
2. Road Construction Detour Signs
(That’ll teach people to try to pass you!)


Cheryl October 11, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Jersey Shore ?


lyndsey@proteinandchocolate.blogspot.com October 11, 2011 at 4:32 pm

Debbie D October 11, 2011 at 5:01 pm

I guess GU gels. Regardless of your costume I am sure you will rock it!


Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) October 11, 2011 at 5:26 pm

I thought I was SO smart for thinking ‘swedish fish’ but then realized others have guessed that too… hmmm… I’m bad at guessing… a mountain of salad? You’re the salad, sister is a breadstick??


Theresa Crowgey October 11, 2011 at 6:10 pm

Candy corns


Bess @ Bess Be Fit October 13, 2011 at 8:59 am

Maybe a pair of running shoes? Like you could each be one to make up two feet?!?!


The Accidental Runner October 13, 2011 at 11:41 am

Bob and Jillian?


kelsey October 13, 2011 at 10:53 pm

you’ll be green grapes and she’ll be purple grapes? otherwise you’ll be a salad or a serving of froyo, but i’m not quite sure how you would work that one out…


meg October 14, 2011 at 1:30 pm

I am so curious to know the answer! What about those 2 people costumes where you are attached – like siamese twins, or an animal where one person is the head+front 2 legs and the other person is the butt+back 2 legs. It would be so hard to run like that but it’d be HILARIOUS to watch!


Courtney October 15, 2011 at 1:31 pm

Gosh, there have been a lot of good guesses! I’m going to go with Black Eyed Peas (not the band, but a play on words with P’s on your shirts and black paint smeared around your eyes) or Mario and Luigi or Forest Gump! :)


Courtney October 15, 2011 at 1:35 pm

For some reason I don’t see my comment showing up, so I’m going to try one more time! Black Eyed Peas (not the band, but P’s on your shirts and black smeared around your eyes)? Mario and Luigi?


Courtney October 15, 2011 at 1:40 pm

Princess Leia? Smurfs?


Marianne October 15, 2011 at 8:29 pm

Toddlers? From Toddlers and Tiaras?
It is the most horrifying show I’ve ever watched. It makes me want to sleep with the lights on.


~K~ October 23, 2011 at 6:55 am

i was gonna try to read all the other guesses to make sure i don’t type a repeat, but man, there’s too many! ;-) Like everyone else, i really have no idea..but now i have the clue of you needing a hot glue gun sooo…..um…..i’m gonna guess you two are going as a package of Reese’s peanut butter cups ??? i dunno. Can’t get away from the food/candy idea… runner_girl5k at yahoo dot com


Prudence K October 23, 2011 at 7:10 am

Over 200 guesses and no one is right?!?!?!? Man, you guys are creative! My guess is as football players or bike racers.


Katherine October 23, 2011 at 7:10 am

Going to make some random guesses:
Trash cans
A famous person
Candy or some sort
A toy
A plant



Courtney G October 23, 2011 at 7:46 am

I am so excited about this that I told my husband when you first posted it, and he even tried racking his brain. Here we go for like my 18t+guess: gum ball machines? christmas trees? glitter? leftovers?


Brooke October 23, 2011 at 8:30 am

I’m gonna have to go with Glinda the good witch and the wicked witch of the west? Ahh I have no idea how no one has guessed yet with all of these great guesses! You guys are cre-at-ive!! :)

Katie Luquire October 23, 2011 at 1:35 pm

Lindsay October 23, 2011 at 2:08 pm

My obnoxious guess: you guys are going to run like yourselfs!
But my real guess is: hamburgler, french fries, pregnant runners, nurses?
