Dare to Share #366



It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share!

I have an exciting weekend, and few weeks coming up. We are in our last three weeks of school. I am scheduled pretty much every single day until the last day.  On top of that the friend I mention a couple of weeks ago is graduating tomorrow morning, and her party is in just 2 weeks.  Might as well throw a holiday weekend in the mix as well.  I don't mind being busy though, and hope to have some new posts with the upcoming party.  

I also want to explain why the party was temporarily closed early this week.  You may not have noticed unless you tried to link during that time.   I have an InLinkz legacy account which is on autopay. InLinkz received my payment, but somehow missed processing it.  When it showed me as being unpaid, my account was switched to a free account with a limit of only 50 links per party.  I notified InLinkz as soon as I realized something was wrong.  They immediately fixed the error and reopened the party.  Everything should be back to normal now.  

It is time to get this week's party started.  Link up and HAVE FUN!!

As I write this I am about to go out with my friends tonight. Depending on what time I get back, I might update how the night went..  This week, I started planning a graduation party with a friend. She went back to college in her 40s to finish her degree.  Her graduation is a pretty big deal, and we want to celebrate her accomplishment.  I am working on a few posts on our planning, and with graduation party tips.. Stay tuned.. 

It is time to get this party started..

Tonight I went with a friend to see the new movie Dumbo. The original movie back in the day made me cry when Dumbo was separated from his mom.  I was worried that this movie would make me cry too, because baby Dumbo looks so real. It was a cute movie, and I only got a little bit teary eyed.  Have you seen Dumbo yet? Do you like that they are remaking all of the animated movies in to real life versions?  What is your favorite Disney movie that you have or would like to see remade? So far Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast have been my favorite remakes.  

Since it is getting late, I better get this party started.

How to Make a Unicorn Costume - Quick and Easy Tips



I was going through some older photos, and I came across pictures from Halloween.  As many of you know if you follow me on social media,  ( FacebookInstagramPinterest ) that I love unicorns.  This year I knew I wanted to make an unicorn costume that was easy, inexpensive, and comfortable to wear.  I needed to be able to dance in it, because my friends and I go to an annual Halloween dance in our area.  




Disclosure: This blog has affiliate links to products used in this post 

The first part of my costume I found was my unicorn horn for only $10 at a local festival. I fell in love with it right away.  It is kind of hard to tell in the picture, but it even lights up.  You can find unicorn horns pretty much everywhere now days, but here are a few of my favorites I found online.  (Unicorn horn with tulle maneShiny horn and ears



I knew I did not want to wear a wig, or put actual color in my hair for my costume.  I found multi-color hair clips on sale at Claires, and single color hair clips on clearance at Walmart. Here is something with a similar look I found on Amazon- Color hair pieces



At first I thought I would wear a boa as a tail. I loved the colorful look.  However, I did not like the trail of feathers I left behind me as I walked.  Knowing I would be shaking those feathers all over the dance floor, I decided against it.  If you like the look, check out this really cool rainbow boa I found. 



What I decided to do was make a tail out of tulle.  I had several 3 inch spools of rainbow colors in my craft stash. Tulle is easy to work with, and easy to cut to size. I am a pretty short human, so I wanted to make sure I did not trip over my tail while I danced.   I layered several different pieces in my desired length together until it was the size that I wanted.  I then knotted the top the tail.  I attached my tail to my belt loop of my favorite pair of white jeans.  







I knew I wanted a white rainbow top for my costume. I really wanted this one, but it was not available at the time.  I ended up another top that is very similar from DressLily



The night of the dance I did my make up using my daughter's Unicorn Eye Tutorial which you can see here

I got a lot of positive comments on my costume that night. I would definitely wear it again, if I have the chance. 


A fun night was had by all.  😊

Happy Friday! We are now officially on Spring Break! We are not going anywhere, but we will a week with no schedule. Everyone was asking me what I was going to do for break, all I could think to say was sleep..LOL!   If you were at last week's party you know I mentioned my friend's baby shower.  It turned out really nice and she got a lot of cute gifts for her baby girl. (think lots of pink)  I got her some cute onesies which she will get a lot of use out of in the hot summer months, and a unicorn lovie blanket.  The new baby will definitely be dressed in a lot of cute outfits. 

It is now time for today's party.  Link up and HAVE FUN!

UPDATE: Thank you Denise for emailing me.  The link has been fixed.  When writing the post last night, I must have accidentally left off part of the link.. Happy linking!  

I don't know about you, but this was a tough week for me.  It started on Monday with the sad news that Luke Perry had died.  Things to know about me.. I grew up in Ohio, I am just a few days younger than Luke, 90210 is one of my favorite shows ever, and one of my good friends in college actually grew up with him and knew him well. Because of those things, I felt like I personally knew him. Hearing he died was a shock. I found out while at school teaching. My co-teacher that day is in her mid 40s and was also a big fan. I heard her gasp while looking at the news on her phone in a down moment. The kids did not know what happened, but the rest of the day we were both kind of stunned.  Then the next morning, I woke up with a very sore throat and fever. I took OTC meds thinking a cold was coming on. Wednesday morning, my throat felt even worse, and it hurt to swallow.  A trip to the Dr and $100 later, I found it was probably strep throat.  I say probably, because the quick test was negative.  The Dr said it definitely looked bad and that I was it was very pain, so he was going to treat it anyway.  Thankfully he did, because after a couple days on the antibotics I do feel a lot better and almost back to normal.  

How was your week this week?

Are you ready for the Oscars this weekend? I am actually excited about them because I have seen several of the nominated movies.  My favorite is definitely Bohemian Rhapsody, because I LOVE QUEEN!  I also saw a Star is Born, and Black Panther.  Tonight I watched The Wife with a friend of mine.  Since many people say that Glenn Close will with the Oscar this year, we decided to check it out.  It was an okay movie, but she did do a great job with her character.  What is your favorite nominated movie this year?

I know the last few weeks, I have mentioned weather in my posts. Well this week we had another crazy week of weather that is worth mentioning.  Early in the week, we were warm in in the 40s and 50s. Everything was muddy and wet because 8 inches of snow melted very quickly. On Tuesday night temps dropped, and an ice/freezing rain storm covered most of the state.  We woke up Wednesday morning to hundreds of schools closed across the state,  because everything was covered in ice. Thursday it warmed back up again to a record high of 58, but unfortunately that did not last long. Do you know what we woke up to today??  Wind chills below zero! It has been freezing all day long, and I think it might have possibly made it a 20 degrees. Is anyone else tired of the crazy winter weather and ready for Spring?

What a week! I live in the middle of the Polar Vortex area of the country.  You know last week when I mentioned that we had two days off of school for ice, well this week we had four days off because of the COLD.. BRR..  Wednesday was the coldest of the days at -40+ with windchill.  Today was our first day back to school since last Friday.  At 20 degrees, today felt like a heatwave.  The craziest thing about our weather is they are expecting it to be 50 degrees on Monday. If it happens, that is a 90 degree temperature change in just a few days.  We are definitely looking forward the the spring like weather after this week.  

It is also Super Bowl weekend.. While my main team (Bengals) really had a hard year, my second favorite pro team (Patriots) are in the big game.  I have to admit, I was not really a fan of them until this year.  I have grown to like them because of a person in my life who is a HUGE fan.  When they win, he is happy, so I like it when they win.  :)  Also being a certain age, I love that Tom Brady is still at the top of his game at an "old age" for football.  It shows you can still be amazing at any age.   

Who are you rooting for this weekend?

Brrrr!!  I don't know about you but I am currently freezing right now.  We had a few days off of school for ice, and are predicted to have a few more next week when we have double digit negative wind chills.  How cold is it where you live.  It is times like this I wish I lived in a warmer area.
