This past weekend, Husband took the boys to a college football game in Florida. It was the first time that I was left completely to my own devices. It was strange! I planned accordingly and quickly agreed to attend the Halloween party of all parties. Normally, I decline these invitations because Husband is not much of a party guy. BUT when the cat’s away, the mouse will play— and boy did she play. I am still recovering. I guess that is the difference between 20 and 40. One wild night out knocked me on my ass. Dressing up for the party was mandatory and once again I was reminded what an amazing and loyal friend I have. My regular partner in crime who is always up for a good time- and is magically always available to go out with me when Husband is away, took control of the costumes. Little did I know how much effort she put in to create our look. ”Sexy brownie” was the theme and she nailed it for us- a brownie vest with hand sewn patches, a very short khaki skirt, a brownie purse that says brownies do it best, a beret, and slutty leopard pumps. I never felt this good as a brownie when I was a little girl. My one time experience as a brownie included being the ugly lion in the skit as I was suffering from a wicked case of fever blisters all over my 9 year old face. I can’t wait to see what bestie comes up with for next year’s costume. Thanks for a fun night!
