Party People…Friday Night

1 Jun

Now I don’t mean to brag or anything, but if you weren’t at my 30th birthday party on Friday night, you totally missed out!

The party started with all of my closest friends meeting up at our home in their glorious 1980′s outfits. From there, the party-goers headed out all around the South Puget Sound-ish area on a poker rally that took them in and out of public areas (to their shock and embarrassment). They had to stop at places like Mrs. Field’s, where I had cookies waiting for them to devour, and Lover’s, where I had glow-in-the-dark condoms and not-glow-in-the-dark-cuz-that’d-be-weird lube goodie bags for their enjoyment (hopefully later, in the privacy of their own homes).

Some teams even had on-lookers ask if they were part of The Amazing Race!

Yeah, because there are big camera crews following them around…

But I was truly stunned at what a good time people had with the poker rally. There are still rumors and stories floating around of cars racing up to 90 miles per hour, teams cheating, and participants running their asses off against each other to be the first at a pit stop! I guess when you’re dressed like this, you have to be in the mood for fun!

Mall Rats and Madonna?

After the winners of the poker rally were declared, we headed over to the local roller rink for a couple hours of skating.

And let me tell you, NOTHING makes you feel old like roller skating for an hour and being EXHAUSTED!!

I don’t know if words can convey what an awesome time was had by all, so here are some hilarious photos for your enjoyment:

Buffy, Jem and the authentic 80's floral dress!
Statler & Waldorf and Buffy & Chet
Rad Roller Skating
Mr. Bee as Ted, Mama as Madonna and the two Roller Lovebirds

But my FAVORITE costumes were these:
Sissy
Duder (and winner of the best costume of the night!)
Roller King

I can honestly say that I have never had as much fun as I had on Friday night. I don’t know if it was just the pure fun of all of it or being able to watch my friends enjoy themselves so much, but my 30th birthday will be a day I always remember.

Thank you so much to all of my friends who not only attended, but really got in to the 1980′s spirit! Without you, I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun.

And I would’ve been deemed the creepy Madonna fanatic who roller skates by herself on a Friday night.

    I’d like to know how you all stole stuff from the back of my closet without me seeing you. It makes me feel not quite so 40-something just looking at the photos.
