Decades Birthday Party and a Niners Win

This weekend has been pretty amazing and full of lots of friend time.  The Niners won, the decades birthday party was a success and we had a great time at a Christmas party.  The bad....I lost to my husband in fantasy football this week.  But the good news is (always looking for the silver lining) is I am still in second place in my league (I believe) going into the playoffs, so there still is hope.  And I believe I will be playing my father in law.

Friday was pretty stressful trying to find a costume for the decades party.  I had several ideas, but the weather forecast said lots of snow.  I didn't want to wear the skimpy dress I wanted from Francesca's.  But Junkie Clothing Exchange saved the day.  I was able to pick up a long cigarette, long black satin gloves and a pearl necklace (no I didn't have one because the dumb ass who burglarized our home two years ago stole mine) to complete my Audrey Hepburn outfit.  I have way too many layers in my hair to put it up like Audrey Hepburn did in Breakfast At Tiffany's, so I went with a low bun.  I would say it turned out pretty well.

 My husband was a Wall Street business man from the 80s (notice the white powder sugar on his label, yep a fake of what you would think)
Classy ladies

We had several photo sessions and they were all pretty epic.  We partook in flip cup which I have only played maybe twice in my life.  We had yummy jello shots I made from a recipe I got off That's So Michelle (peach and vanilla champagne jello shots), and I didn't drink much at all, so there was no hangovers.  Win!

During our flip cup fun, a friend made a gross sandwich.  It is chicken wings, pizza rolls and potato chips sandwiched in between two red velvet cookies.
Here is one last photo from the night...awkward family stern photo much?!
