Thursday...thinking back?

Okay, I couldn't think of a title for this flash back post, but I just realized this dance was in February and I never said anything about it. I helped plan a "decades" Valentines dance at church and not many people dressed for the theme, so here are a some photos of the brave few that came and actually had fun!

1- Do you love my friend Cathy's giant 80's butt bow? I was very impressed.
2- Cam 'n' Aub. This was an authentic 70's orange dress with matching jacket that she borrowed from her friend's mom.
3-Holly and Quintin. Holz bought this original 70's dress on EBay and had it shipped from Australia just for the occasion- it arrived just days before the dance. Then Holly and I found Quintin's outfit at Savers. What a delightful find.


Jeff and I went 40's/50's (there was some debate on the actually era, but I was going for early 50's). Jeff is so handsome in a tux. I know most of you don't care, but I have to say, I have thankfully lost some of this post-pregnancy weight since February.

I think your outfit is FANTASTIC! I would wear that just normally. And by the way, you look super skinny in those photos, so I don't know what weight you are talking about. This is such a fun idea! I know my hubby wouldn't do it with me, but I still think it'd be fun if my ward put on a dance like this.

How fun! It's fun to see Kathy's awesome bow. I think I may have had one of those. Fun idea for a dance.

I care that you've lost weight since February! That is the best feeling...I mean, you look great in these dance pictures and I LOVE your dress, but I am proud of you. And yes, Jeff does look very handsome in a tux...he looks very "James Bond" which is obviously a good thing (I think so, I can't imagine any woman who thinks a "James Bond" look isn't a good thing...

Michelle where have you been all my life?? I haven't seen you in months I miss you! I might see you before the summer is over but I'll definately see you in the fall :)

Quintin looks like a child molester, or a 70's porn star. Don't tell him I said these things.

Wendy Lady said...

What fun! I love theme parties and miss planning them for my Ward. I love, love, love your outfit. You guys are a way cute couple.

Put some sequins on those gloves and you're Michael Jackson.

Lame people who won't dress up suck. Oh ya, I went there! You look SUPER cute!

Jeff, Star and Taya said...

Oh my goodness, dont you look purdy! I love it! I have always loved the vintage look! SO fun!

Rick said...

I think you look stupid. People don't dress like that anymore for a reason: it's out of fashion. Duh.

Rick said...

P.S. I miss you.
