Bus Stop Costumes

Can you see her daughter?!

You guys know how much I’m into traditions and creating new ones! Well how excited I was to learn about  a really cool mom, Julie Mudrick from Vienna. All month she’s been dressing up in homemade costumes and surprising everyone when she picks them up from the bus stop! The whole crew on wheels gets a kick out of it.  It’s something she started 3 years ago when her son expressed was worried about what others thought of him. Her response was to dress up and show him that it’s ok to stand out, be goofy, fun and above all imperfect.  This year her oldest daughter who is in middle school decided to join in on the fun! You can find more of her costumes on facebook and instagram using #BusStopCostumes.

I have no clue what Julie will show up as tomorrow… but I know one thing for sure: Regardless of the wig, cape or makeup she throws on.. this mom is downright SUPER!

    Julie and her husband are old friends of mine. Every October, this page has been a source of conversation, several with people who don’t even know her. She kinda puts the rest of us, who can’t even come up with one Halloween costume, to shame. I love how she takes all of her friends from around the country with her to the bus stop each October.
