80's Fun

On Friday night, our family club had its monthly mom's night out. It was an 80's themed, picture scavenger hunt. What a fun time! My good friend Katy and I decided it would be fun to go dressed in 80s gear. So off we went to the mall and Burlington Coat Factory with 3 kids in tow. Katy has a 4 year old and 10 1/2 month old. Shopping was fun and we laughed the whole time. In the end these were our outfits.



The scavenger hunt was a blast. We had 4 teams of 2 people each. Katy and I were a team because we refused to be seen without each other, since we looked a little goofy. We headed to Vintage Stock and were able to get a lot of pictures there. At one point Katy was break dancing in the middle of the store.



We also went to Party City and took a lot of pictures of 80s things. Like this wonderful mullet wig that Katy is modeling.




One of the clues asked for a picture of us fighting over a Cabbage Patch Kid. Katy was prepared and had one in the back of the car.




I think on of the funniest things was asking a group of guys to help us out at Barnes and Noble. They were studying in the cafe area. I needed a picture of tight rolled jeans. So I asked on of the guys if he would tight roll his jeans. He didn't know what that was so I had to show him.


We had a great time, even though we lost in a tie breaker. Katy should have gotten extra points because I was only 10 when the 80s ended. Oh well, it was all about the fun and the looks we got from everyone.

How fun! The outfits look awesome. Nice job on finding them. Love the pink earrings for sure! So did you try to find the guy with the biggest arms at B&N or was that just coincidence?
