Andrew turned 29 on Halloween. Also, it was Halloween, which is my favorite holiday ever.
Because I have recently become very brave, and because most of the rooms in our house are finally functioning as they should, we threw a party. A Halloween Costumes-Are-Mandatory and Andrew-is-turning-29-so-HAPPY-BIRTHDAY Party.
Before the party I had all these grand delusions that I was going to break out the camera right before everyone arrived to take pictures of all the frightful goodies I had made, but alas, I failed miserably at that task. When our first guests arrived I was in the kitchen frantically putting the finishing touches on some mini-mummy pizzas and slopping beans onto an oozing eyeball. You’ll just have to take my word for it that the swamp juice (made from pineapple juice, fresca, lots o’ rum, some pina colada mix and a bag of frozen berries) was spooky, delicious, and powerful enough to leave me with a Halloween Hangover from Hell & and that all of the goodies I whipped up were the most awesome Halloween goodies ever.
I was Lady GAGA:
Andrew was Mr. Slave from South Park:
SadieBug was a LadyBug but we lack photographic evidence of that.We do, however, have this photo of her in disguise as a Luna Moth:
Our first guest passed out on the couch at 10 PM.
Swamp Juice and Blood-tinis kicked everyone’s ass. Including mine.
At some point we moved the dining table to make room for a dance floor.
I passed out at about 1 AM because the swamp juice was slowly eating away at my soul and was making everything very, very spinny. Apparently Andrew came upstairs to find me, in bed, with my wig still on.
I have no memory of this and maintain that I slept peacefully from the time I went upstairs until 7AM the next morning, but alas. There’s a picture of me looking all crazy and awake.
Then there was a dance contest of some sort:
I think things got a little wild after I went to bed:
I can’t be sure though.
If the awesomeness of this party is directly related to the level of misery I experienced the day after, then I’d say the party was a great success.
