Revisiting the 80's

* If you haven't yet entered my Penguins of Madagascar DVD giveaway, click here! The contest will run through Wednesday*


Who would want to revisit the 80's you ask? Well I still like some of the music from then, and I did most of my growing up in the 80s, graduated highschool in '89, so I kind of like the 80s. Saturday I was on my way back to my moms and I sooo wanted to do something fun, but had no clue what to do.

I tried calling a few friends, but no one was home and just when I was about to give up for the evening I got a text from my friend Nancy inviting me to a bar for an old acquaintaces bday party. 80's style. The bar where it was , was having an 80's night , and they had even made drinks to help us remember those times. One was the Boy George ( which I was told was fruity!), and the other was the Madonna. I did one shot of the Madonna and it was GOOD!

Those who know me know I don't drink, but I had to try the Madonna shot because it sounded delish - it was cranberry juice, vodka and peach schnapps! YUM!

There were several people that came dressed up like they were stuck back in the 80's and we had soo much fun. There were several dressed as Madonna, a few from the group Poison, one or two that looked like the lead singer from Ratt, and many others. The bartender was even dressed like a contestant from the Nickolodean show Double Dare!

There was a lot of karaoke going on, and in between those songs, they played nothing but 80's music. We were waiting for someone to show up in parachute pants, but unfortunately no one did.

Nicole starts back to school in 3 weeks so this past weekend, while I was at the house Chris and I took her school shopping. We still have to get a few things, but for the most part she is set.

I have to go get ready for my day, will write more later! Hope eveyone has a great week:)
