Totally 80s

So I have been invited to a Halloween Party tomorrow night with the fun theme of the 80s. As I have been constructing my fun 80s outfit, I have ventured into some interesting places. Last week I went into a new accesories store at Hulen Mall to buy some huge hoop yellow earrings and leg warmers! We'll just say that there was nothing in this store that I would actually wear with a normal outfit. The girl behind the counter told me to make sure and tell all my friends about this store. I didn't have the heart to tell her that I would be wearing the items I purchased to a Halloween Party. I returned to the store today to purchase one more item for my outfit, and the girl remembered me! It made me realize that I really stick out in a crazy accessory store!

I also purchased a horribly bright 80s sweater at Goodwill today. The lady checking me out decided to have a discussion with me about how beautiful the sweater was and how versatile it truly was!! I again didn't have the heart to tell her that I was wearing it as a costume to a Halloween Party. I just nodded and agreed that I could wear it with jeans, pants, or EVEN a neon green skirt!! I will post pictures soon from this fun event! And Mom, I promise that I washed the Goodwill sweater on hot and used need to freak that I will get cooties from someone else!!

I can't wait to see your pictures. It sounds really good. Ben still makes fun of Michelle's old 80's pictures with the hot pink outfit and lace gloves on Easter Sunday. Her hair was oh so 80's.
Jacob is going to be Elvis. We have been working on the outfit. And Nathan is Tony Hawk. I had sore shoulders from running a power sander over his jeans to make holes in them. Lauren will be Ariel I bought that outfit (easy).
Have fun. Love, Aunt Diane
