take a chance on me: a two birds' halloween

last night, megan, jim, chris and i celebrated halloween by dressing up as ABBA.  we met some friends (including erin, who looked a-mazing as lucille ball! hopefully she will share some pictures!) at a neighborhood bar for a costume contest and karaoke night. pretty much my idea of the best time ever! we came in second place in the contest and won a whopping $50! and megan and i were pretty much on the karaoke mic all night long. it was so much fun! here are a few photos of our costumes. and no, those are not dresses that megan and i are wearing. nope. those are shirts. just shirts. in public. yep. enjoy!








this was our inspiration:

seriously so much fun.

did you dress up for halloween?

xoxo, two birds
