Remember the 80's?

We went to a neighborhood party last night. The theme: 1980s. Brilliant! I chose to dress as one of the coolest guys I remember from the 80's: Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice (as portrayed by Mr. Don Johnson). Check out my hot bride with her leggings and hairspray in full regalia:



Can you believe my whole outfit cost less than $20 on top of clothes already in my closet? The party store had Ray Ban Wayfarer knockoffs for only $1.49. Definitely check that place out next time you need a costume.

The owners of Fell's Market (local celebrities) were there and wouldn't you know it they chose to dress as Miami Vice guys as well. "Are you vice too?" they asked without any hesitation. One of the brothers had a nifty under-the-jacket holster that really heightened the legitimacy of the outfit. Well done!

It was great to get to see our neighbors under circumstances other than the usual, when we're all herding our kids who just want to play away from the occasional car. We really do have great neighbors, and for that we are very grateful.

Don't be fooled, my friend! We tend to post only the positive leaving the impression that we are oh-so together. Truth be told, some days just suck.
