Last night Grandparents took the kids and my Husband and I went to a real life grown up party. Ok granted, it was a Halloween party so everyone dressed up, but there were no streamers, balloons, sugary snacks, but best of all, no ankle bitters I had to chase around and monitor!! Don't get me wrong I love my kids dearly, but grown up fun is few and far between these days. In fact we were thinking about it the other day and the last time my husband and I got out together without kids was almost 3 months ago. He and I sort of do things in shifts. Either he goes out with friends, or I go out and do something. It's rarely both at the same time. But that's neither here nor there. That's just what comes with the territory of having kids. I'm looking at you...anyone out there that is reading this who doesn't have kids. Enjoy your time while it's still your own. Don't take it for granted that you can go see a movie on a whim anytime you want to. I wish I had appreciated it more.
Anyhoo back to the party. It was just a low key party that started at My husbands friend's house and then moved over to a local pub. It was your basic seedy dive bar but our entire group (all in costume) sort of took over the place including the jukebox. We blasted our Def Leopard and Dio and blazed in there like a band of renegades in drag.
Which leads me to our costumes. Which already you have seen the pictures. But let me explain a bit. I am clearly the Queen of hearts. Pretty cut and dry. My Husband however, caused the most commotion in the bar. He is not just an ugly woman. Oh no. He is Courtney Love. After a night of rock-n-roll and binging. My sister in law is a witch and her boyfriend is Cane from Kung Foo.
I think the high point of the night was watching these old grizzled trucker looking guys going into the mens restroom, then turning around and walking right back out with puzzled looks of their faces. Only to find my husband in there in full drag hiking his dress up to tinkle. If only I could have been a fly on the wall ;)
**My husband wants me to make it very clear that this is just for Halloween. He doesn't do this sort of thing normally. It is a gag, not a secret life he's been waiting to share with the world.
