An 80s Mullet and Origami Napkin Hats

I'm a 5-year-old in a 27-year-old's body. No, seriously. I'm a giant baby. I sleep with carebears, a stuffed purple unicorn and a pink gingham pillow. When K gets home from work, I hide around the corner and jump out to surprise him. I ask lots of questions, and I get REALLY fussy when I don't eat.

Yet I'm 3 years short of 30.

But isn't that the fun of it? Being able to act ridiculous with your friends? Honestly, that's when I find myself the happiest. This weekend was no exception--one of my best girlfriends Em came in to visit from Chicago, see the house and hang out with K and I. We went out to a delicious Mexican dinner with some great friends, and I haven't laughed that hard in SO long.

Caught with a paper napkin hat on.
We also went to see HOP at the movies on Friday night, and ate giant buckets of popcorn like we were back in middle school. It was AWESOME.

The first hilarious event of the evening was a drunk bachelorette in the bathroom declaring that she was having a sneezing fit at 8pm. Then, Em slipped on her way to the bathroom about an hour later and gave the waitresses a good giggle. Next, the boys started making origami hats out of their napkins which drew a shoutout from the live band playing next to our table. Annnd the cherry on top was the cab driver at the end of the night who had a straight 80s mullet and drove like he was an extra in Talledega Nights.

It doesn't matter how old you are, sometimes you just have to take it back to the old days, when hanging out with your friends and laughing your face off is the best remedy for any stress in your life. Because what's better than snorting milk out of your nostrils with good friends, acting like an idiot (and making hats out of your cloth napkin at the dinner table--*COUGH* K started it. *COUGH*
