Abbey can pull of a fro better than any white girl I know. And Autumn rocked that side ponytail. I thought I had great 80's make-up, but apparently it all wore off before I even got to the dance.
Remember when I posted a hideous picture of me in costume with the caption "There'll be plenty more where that came from"? Yeah, I lied. Abbey and Autumn sent me their pictures.
The pictures are REALLY funny, but Spencer and I were sweaty fools. Spencer threatened me upon my life if I posted any of him. He was ashamed of his costume...It didn't quite match mine in awesome-ness. But he did sport a blue members-only jacket.
We went to a stake dance. It was like a 'dancing through the decades' theme and costumes were encouraged. When I first heard the dance announced, I blew it off, as I always do with stake dances. But then I thought about it. This is the kind of thing I LIVED for in high school and college. Apart from Halloween, I haven't had a good excuse for a costume in years. So I talked to my friends, and to my surprise, two other couples bought into the idea. (Jake was the DJ...him and Autumn were going anyway.)
All three couples showed up in costume. It was like the time in college I told Adam Sagers we were having a toga party and he was the only one who showed up in a toga. That was us...the only fools in costume.
I think we all made the most of it. I went expecting a really lame night and it turned out to be a blast. Spencer and I laughed our heads off all night as we made up new dance moves. We planned to stay an hour max and stayed for two. I had a great time...it was nice to go out and do something apart from the typical date night. It was reminiscent of our dating and early married years.
A big thanks to Spencer, Abbey & Ross, and Jake & Autumn for humoring me.
