Pink Saturday....Sock Hop!

It's Pink Saturday!! Check out the pink at Beverly's:
Happy Happy Birthday to 2 very special people!!

And, to celebrate the occasion, we were invited to a "Sock Hop".

What a complete blast we all had! The party was in a large space and it was all decorated in theme. The food was ALL AMERICAN, hamburgers and hot dogs.

Our hostess even put down a 50's style dance floor! And, dance we DID!!

This is our hostess and birthday girl.....Pretty In Pink!!

She was wearing a poodle skirt....with a PINK poodle!!

And, matching PINK poodle earrings! SO cute!!

And, because it was a "Sock Hop", here are the socks....PINK!

I was trying to figure out what to wear. I found a sweater set and some pearls in my closet. That ought to do it, right? Well, I thought I would go to the local costume shop, which is located inside an antique mall and see if I could also find some glasses.

The minute I walked over to the costume area, the lady asked if I was going to the 50's Party. I asked her how she knew about it and she said that others had been in. She brought me right over to the Poodle Skirts. I told her, very directly, that I was NOT going to wear a poodle skirt. She said that the others bought poodle skirts. Ugh.

I also said I would NOT wear a pony tail.

Note to self: stop saying what you will NOT do. Just makes you look silly....

Here is my new poodle skirt and pony tail, and my date "The Fonz" who looks a lot like my hubby! (Not Pink....sorry)

All the men were in a uniform of jeans, white T, black shoes, white socks and LEATHER jacket. Every guy I asked was outfitted by the wife. Aren't we so funny? It was like a Fonzie Convention!!

This is also NOT pink....but it was soooooooo yummy! And, inside was a treat....a delectable berry filling (that was kind of pink). MMMMMmmmm.

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!!
