Happy Monday! Boy, did that weekend fly or what? Today I’m sharing nine Halloween costume ideas in preparation for Saturday.

I considered going as the iconic puppet character last year but opted for the glam of Audrey Hepburn instead. Do you like Saw or have you even seen the movie? And now for the most important question… Do you want to play a game? Continue reading “Billy the Puppet Halloween Costume”
