The Glorious Train Wreck Mom

This is a safe space for all train wrecks. Except here, we don't give you a puppy and a latte. We give you sarcasm and humor.

Welcome aboard, train wreck.

Have I mentioned I’m in a love affair with Pinterest? Sad, but true. See, I love Pinterest because it gives me ideas. Sometimes, I’m bold enough to assume I can actually complete the project with decent looking results. This is one such case.

If this is your first time here, welcome aboard, train wreck. Glad to have you here. If this isn’t your first time here, I’m still glad to have you. Please like, comment, share, and subscribe. My goal is to have five hundred subscribers by the end of the year. I think we can make that happen.

So, there I was. Scrolling on Pinterest. Looking for a literary or bookish themed costume. See, most of the books I read have normal people in them. Clare Cosi is a coffee shop owner. Jessica Fletcher is a retired English teacher. There’s no one thing that would set them apart as me wearing a costume instead of my normal every day clothes. Then I saw a post. It was something like quick and easy DIY Halloween costumes for book worms. In hindsight, it probably would have made sense to save that pin. I read the post and saw a picture. Very simple. And done on the cheap. This was something I could pull off. So, I tried.

First, I grabbed my black dress. I have a cat and corgi. Everything has weird hair on it.
Aren’t they the cutest? And they’re comfortable. Got these on Amazon.
These are 50 less than an inch book covers that I printed. These are my top 50 reads of 2021 so far.
These are sticky back pins. Came in a bag of 100 from Amazon.
I didn’t need the book worm socks. But I did and they’re so cute.
Step 1. Attach all the little book covers to all the pins. Meaning I had to peel the protective strips on all of these. Thank goodness my son was in the mood for a long bath.
Step 2. After removing the cat from the dress, attach all the pins.
Step 3, ask husband to take a pic of you and then argue that he never takes a good pic of you. Then settle on a selfie.

What did I tell you? Quick and easy and cheap. That’s not the first time I’ve heard those words to describe me, but oh well.

Hopefully, this list gives you something to read while your waiting for the turkey to thaw, or cook, or be delivered. Again, if you like what I post, please like, comment, share, and subscribe.

What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Let me know and if you post about it, tag me so I can see it. That’s all I’ve got for today, train wrecks. All aboard.
