Peter Rabbit | Halloween Costume
Peter Rabbit-7.jpg

Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were--Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter.

One of my MOST treasured childhood memories is reading Peter Rabbit. Peter Rabbit was also one of the MOST AMAZING and HILARIOUS movies of the year for me. So this costume was TOO exciting for me to create and plan.

The miniature Peter Rabbit tea set in these pictures is FROM my childhood and I’ve been DYING to dress up as Peter Rabbit and drink tea out of my Peter Rabbit tea set. AND. I. DID. IT.

I love, love, LOVED getting dressed up as Peter Rabbit (or did I dress up as James Corden?). And I’d been scheming up Brett’s matching costume for a whole year leading up to this moment. At first I thought I might make him just be a bunch of vegetables, but then the idea came to make him the fence AND the vegetables. Brett also decided to claim he was Mr. McGregor too. So he became a three in one costume.

Dont’ worry, I managed to steal some carrots, eggplant, and tomatoes from his garden (That sounds kind of sexual… #marriedlovers). ;)

We took our costumes to a Halloween party, and we won best couples costume! Yay!

Until Next Year,

Stacie

Easy DIY Iphone Case (Interchangeable and Personalized)

I’d like to introduce myself if you’re new around here.

I’m Stacie, I’m in my late twenties living in the West Texas desert. I’m really good at putting an outfit together and my home feels like Fall Vibes all the time. I photograph weddings by day and myself by night (for this blog)!

Oh…. and I drop my iphone— ON THE REGULAR.

I’d also love to introduce you to my really awesome, stellar, amazing case (my dad bought it for me after I shattered my first iphone), Speck.

When I offer clumsiness, my Speck offers peace of mind… and an iphone that’s still in one piece.

The specific Speck case I have is clear and less than $20, something, I’ve found, I really enjoy about my iphone!

This case turned into one of my favorite interchangeable and personalized DIY’s ever! And I’m pumped to share it with you today!

Instead of having to buy a new colorful case or new case to DIY every time I want to switch things up, all I need to do is switch out the picture I’ve inserted into my affordable case.

We have our phones on us all the time. This whole past year anytime I set my phone down I saw a picture of Brett and I smiling back at me. Or sometimes I’d lay it down at a coffee shop get together and someone would ask about who that stud was in the picture and I’d get to husband brag real quick (and show them how cute I think he is). I love that this case lets me keep my phone safe and reminds me of those I love—- all at the same time!

What I’ve learned about this project: Using photos printed on glossy photo paper and then leaving your phone in a hot car can sometimes melt the sticky photo paper to the case, making the photograph rip when you remove it from the case. It can leave sticky residue on the case. I soaked my iphone case over night in order to remove the sticky residue.

I love changing out the picture in my case whenever I want! I’m going to try to be better at changing it out as the seasons change!

What do you think? Will you be trying this DIY too?
