back to the eighties


One of my best friends just celebrated a milestone birthday... eighties style. Big hair, big accessories... and a seven hour playlist. Her husband referred to it as the soundtrack. It certainly set the stage... for big fun. Because you just can't help singing along when Cyndi Lauper reminds us that Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (and yes, we did!) And Madonna's Crazy for You brought me right back to the roller skating rink and calling certain boys on the pay phone (do they still make those?) Decked out in my strands of blue plastic beads, ruffle socks and faux Sam & Libbys, I celebrated a friendship and laughed at the 80's... Time After Time.



It is Flashback Friday... and music memories. While this party was just a week ago, the weeks of planning certainly dragged the past right on into the present!

So. Much. Fun.
I think "Crazy for You" is THE official song of the roller skate rink Moonlight. Thanks for taking us back this week!

Love, love, love. I was definitely a child of the eighties, in all its glory! I was a little too young to really know what it meant, but I eyed my older cousins' big hair, fingerless gloves, and blue eyeshadow with envy! :) So fun!
