Last night, my husband relived a childhood dream and I was his disco wife as we attended a local costume party. The pictures speak volumes. My costume was not sponsored by Spanx but it should have been. If you are a woman and don’t have Spanx in your life yet, you are missing out and I’ll blog about my love for Spanx one day soon. And don’t ask me how I went to the bathroom in the disco costume. It was a fiasco. But the real star was my husband. For any child or teenage boy of the 1980’s…or die hard professional wrestling fan…
Hulkamania was running wild on the prairie last night. Thanks to Ebay and Amazon, Nathan and I pulled together our costumes quite affordable and easily.
On a different note, I am reminded today of a very special moment 22 years ago today. My mom gave birth to my youngest brother, Joe, on her birthday. They share a birthday but as my mom says, she hasn’t had a birthday since that day. The above picture was Joe’s 1st birthday. Happy Birthday to two of my favorite people on earth! Stop to give a comment to my mom, Jane, who blogs at GriggsDakota.
Tomorrow afternoon the girls will be dressing up in their chosen costumes which are reminiscent of me in 1982 and we are going to our local nursing home Halloween party where we’ll visit residents and the girls will load up on too much candy. This is the only clue you get to their costumes…from me in 1982:

You are my disco hero. I would have never been able to pull that off no matter how much body space the spanx covered.
Katie! Such great costumes!! You looked great by the way! I could have never pulled that off!
You guys are fantastic! I also love the army men from last year. I will be a mad scientist tomorrow and will certainly surprise my 2nd grade students. I bought an extra bottle of white rain hairspray to make my red locks stand on end all day long…..
