Anyway, the party was fun, there were nice people there, and if I thought nobody would have noticed, I would have licked that deliciously decadent bowl of artichoke dip clean. Just one word of pre-party caution, my friends. Even if you're SO sure that the party is 80s dress up themed that you've laundered your Blondie sweatshirt, practiced your side ponytail, and purchased a pair of neon pink hoop earrings- be sure you check in with the hostess the day before. Because she may have only mentioned that whole costume idea in passing, and you may have been sleep deprived or pregnancy brained and taken it as a serious plan when in fact it never was. And if you don't check in with the hostess and get set straight that in fact, NO, nobody at the party will be in 80s garb ... well, that could end in a very embarrassing moment for you. Just FYI.
I'm just thankful my friend was kind enough to spare me a Legally Blonde bunny costume moment when I did check in about this minor detail last night, even if her (funny) husband thought it would be more entertaining to let me show up looking like a big nerd-o-rama.
