Parker (to Reid):  You don't know what a spa is?!  It's the place people go and put pickles on their eyes.

Great Gatsby!

"Can't repeat the past?... Why of course you can!"
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Did I mention I threw myself a 30th birthday bash? 
It started with an invitation inviting all to celebrate the last weekend in my 'Roaring 20's.'

I have to say I was a little disappointed in the turn out.  I blame myself.  I should have known that most of my friends wouldn't buy in to a costume party.  But it's not like I would have kicked them out for showing up sans costume.  

Plus, it was Labor Day weekend.

All the more reason to thank my friends who did come to humor me...with or without costume.  Thanks friends.  It was a great night!

The Hosts
(I should really include these two as hosts, too.  It was at their house.  They braved the sweltering heat to help set up. And Autumn was full of great ideas.  Thanks you two.)

The Friends

The Family

The Food

The Girls

 The Men
(I love the progression of these pictures)

The Details

The Dancing

The Kids

The Croquet

The Movie
(Singing in the Rain with popcorn and sparklers)

I've been wanting an excuse to throw a 20's party for years.  
This was the perfect night for it (aside from the crazy humidity that day.)
Thanks again to my friends who made the night for me.
