I have a new friend!

This guy has been riding right beside me since Sunday!
I kinda like him there! People get a kick out of him!

(excuse my dirty windshield)

I got him at Walgreens in case you are wondering. He was only thirty dollars.
That's a pretty good deal for a 5 foot skeleton.

I'm still working on my Halloween decorations.
I've been adding ribbon to everything! Have I told you I LOVE ribbon!

Ribbon makes me happy! If I had a girl, her bows would be the size of Texas! 

Hand soap needs a little bedazzle, too!

I just loved this sign! JoAnn's has some really cute decor! Added ribbon to it, too!

I can't believe so many of you do not know who Dexter is?!!!  Dexter comes on Showtime at 9 pm on Sunday nights. He kills bad people! Sounds crazy, right?! But so good! I love trashy TV, what can I say! ;)

Have a wonderful Thursday!
 I've got to look for a box of Halloween decor I'm missing and get ready for school's fall festival tonight.

PS. My son lost another tooth yesterday. Well, he comes in the living room this morning and says, "Look mama, the tooth fairy left my tooth, too!" Oh my! My husband forgot to take the tooth! We have got to get better at this tooth fairy stuff!

That is so funny! I can just imagine all the smiles you're getting as you drive around town!

Kathy said...

So cute, bet those boys are going to enjoy your new *friend* fun to have the little ones around to enjoy this time of the year Jennifer. That tooth fairy needs to go back to school!!!!

The skeleton is too funny! It is always fun to see someone with a good sense of humor.

Does he count for the carpool lane? Lol

Michele Smith said...

hahahaha I would be LMAO if I saw that. Too funny girl!
I've been adding ribbon to everything too, I LOVE ribbon!

ugh tooth fairy can be a tough job!
Some nights we forgot to even leave money or take the tooth cause we would fall asleep waiting for my son to fall asleep! Or he forgets to put it under his pillow!
He will be 11 next month.

Kelly said...

That is TOO funny! I bet you get the strangest looks when you're at a traffic light. That's a fun idea during October. Now, I'll be a little concerned if it continues past Halloween. Ha!

Brandi said...

LOL! Mr. Skeleton is hilarious! I bet the people driving next to you really got a good laugh seeing him! My son just lost another tooth a couple days ago. In addition to money, I always leave him a little note from the tooth fairy reminding him to read more and be nice to his sister!

Jen S. said...

Oh my gosh you TOTALLY CRACK ME UP Jennifer! That's so funny :)

PS--I love ribbon's such a nice added touch!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Lovin' your new friend, glad he buckled up:@)

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Lawsie Mercy! That is morbidly hysterical. Honey, you've got moxie out the wazoo! I could never do that, especially not with a straight face. That really is just too funny! I love it!

Lori said...

Do you get to ride in the H O V lanes with him? so great.

Leslie said...

I flippin love this!!! hmmm.. maybe I should pick up a skeletal hitch-hiker.

Have a great weekend.

Jane said...

I'm getting a kick out of the skeleton in the front seat, too. Bet you do get some strange looks! Can't wait to see everything when you find the misplaced bin of Halloween decorations and finish tying it all up with ribbons and bows!

Jemsmom said...

That is priceless! I wonder how many people do a triple take on the roads! I lost a tub of Halloween stuff too! So much for organizing! I swear I am going to get black and orange tubs for Halloween so I can't lose them in the sea of blue and green tubs!

Town and Country Gals said...

you crack me up, that is the best!
I'd love to see that when I was driving down the street, you'd get a thumbs up from me! Love your decorations, fall and Halloween is the best time of the year!

Pam said...

That's so funny. I love him (or her). I bet it causes people to take a second look.

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

You are too totally funny. A girl after my own heart. And we have so totally done that with teeth before too.

Jann Olson said...

A girl after my own heart! Yes, everything looks better with ribbon. You are right girl, we would have SO MUCH FUN shopping together. I love how it's all coming together. The skelly is wonderful! Yes, $30 is an awesome price. I almost bought one last year. He had originally been $100.
He was marked down drastically. I finally decided that I had WAY TOO MUCH Halloween. Love how he rides with you. Darn, didn't think of that. Tooth Fairy story rings a bell. I'm sure we did that once or twice with our 5 kids.

Charlotte said...

I saw this skeleton also but didn't want to spend $30. Maybe he will be on sale after Halloween! I don't know who Dexter is either; I am watching Desperate Housewives at 9 on Sunday.

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

LOL!!! Love your passenger!! He looks like he is having a good time! I am sure you get some looks with this!

Great Halloween decor :)

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

I love the skeleton in the car. Too funny! I wonder if my Walgreens still has some. I'm off to check it out.
