Girls Just Wanna Have Fu-un!!!

Dana wore an awesome "unit" (remember those?) and I used more hairspray than any hair-do requires. Seriously, my hair felt like an over styled poodle.
Yo', Jen's bodacious mom and sister threw her the raddest surprise 30th birthday party. We all had to dress up in 80's attire and I think we met the challenge in a boss way. They had a fun "Amazing 80's Race" planned for us so we hit the city in our dope ensembles lookin' for studs and feelin' stellar.
1. Our first stop was our old Alma mater, West Jordan High School, where a basketball game had just ended. We had to make up a schweet dance routine in front of the school and perform it on camera. I think we still have it ladies.
2. Our second stop was the Hummel residence. Amber's parents were waiting for us and when we arrived we had to sing our school fight song. Luckily, we had a poster with words because it has been a while.
3. Next, we hit our old post-game hang out Sconecutter. Sadly, it was deserted. I guess it isn't the "cool" place to chill anymore. We shared a shake and had to answer questions pertaining to our High School days. I was surprised at how much we have all forgotten over the last eleven years. It was great fun reminiscing. We have shared a great deal of ups and downs together. We have also shared too many hilarious moments to count.
4. The night was still young as we made our way to Shopko, a place where half of my friends worked back in the day. We had to find 20 items for $30 and we completely FAILED! We misjudged by quite a bit. Mr. Nellis would be severely disappointed in our math skills.
5. Our last adventure took place at West Jordan Middle School. We had to make up a music video as we sang to "Girls Just Want To Have Fun". We each had to have a solo and I chose to pull out some awesome break dancing moves during mine. A- I cannot break dance and B- my back is never going to heal and C-it was totally worth it. If anyone would like to see the video I am sure it will be on U-tube eventually. That or MTV. We were quite fantabulous.

I absolutely LOVE that nobody acted too cool to participate. If anything I think we are all more adventurous than we were in High School because we couldn't care less what people think of us. (Not that we ever did.) Thanks Gale and Jill for hosting such a fabulous evening and Happy Birthday Jen! I am so glad you were in town for your big day and that we got to celebrate together. It was definitely a night to remember fer sure. For us, and for all who had the pleasure of witnessing our charades. I am totally stoked for the next party.
