We Love The 80's

Last night, Connor and I had the opportunity to time travel...
Right back to the 80's!
He works for one the the very best companies around!
They hosted this amazing party in downtown Seattle at the EMP (Experience Music Project).
They encouraged employees to dress in 80's garb...
So we like, totally, had to fer sure...

Gag me with a spoon!
Oh yeah! Look how dorky we look!
My sis-in-law, Shannon, helped both of us with our outfits.
This lovely blue cable sweater is straight out of her closet, circa 1986.
And Connor's "skinny" tie is one he actually bought back in '84

I used about 1/2 a can of aerosol hairspray and when I was done Connor asked "So when are you going to do your hair?" OMG...I know I have big hair naturally, but do I really look like this on a daily basis?
I think my favorite piece is Connor's "Save Ferris" shirt. Another stellar find thanks to Shannon!

Nick and Nolan were shocked by our attire and when we were driving them to Grandma's house to be babysat, they were egging me on saying "Hey mom, I dare you to pull over to the gas station and fill up the tank lookin' like that!"

Once inside the EMP, we were treated to some unbelievable food and drinks.
We had our picture taken and were able to browse around the museum. None of the walls have a right angle and every nook and cranny is filled with ultra cool rock and roll memorabilia.
Then we entered this huge concert hall called the "Sky Church" with walls made from video screens showing bright colors and patterns all the way to the ceiling. It was very cool.

And on the stage were these guys....

They are the "Spazmatics" and they played all the 80's classics while jumping around on the stage in all their nerd gear. They had a ton of energy and the crowd was on their feet dancing the night away.
It seriously was like being teleported right back to one of my high school dances.
Except this time I had a wedding ring on my finger!
It was totally rad.
