Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Fx4: Def Leppard. Poison. Cheap Trick.

My sister and I took a last-minute trip to a fab 80's flashback concert on Wednesday night. If we had decided sooner (maybe an hour beforehand, at the very least) on our plans, we'd have gone all out. And I do mean ALL OUT. Alas, we were late as it was and had not even a moment for hair-teasing. Still, it was so much fun.
Candy driving to the concert:

Poison rocked it, but not nearly long enough.

So many fantastic (sometimes fantastically awful) fashion remakes! We aligned ourselves so that no one would notice us taking photos of strangers (note the center of this pic):

These girls, however, were apparently not fooled at all.

So we just started asking people to pose...

....And eventually jumped into the pics ourselves.

Here I am (ick - sweaty) driving home. I was the DD, but somehow we still ended up Kentucky before realizing we were going the wrong direction.
Coming next week: Potty stories from this awesome evening. There are more than one.

Visit
Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta for more photo phun!

*w00t*! Such Superior Snaps! Too bad KISS wasn't there, too...

We absolutely love Poison! I am so embarrassed to admit that my adorable six year old daughter sings "talk dirty to me" and knows all the words.

We've got Brett Michaels coming to our city in August, will we see you there? Is that enough time for you to get your wardrobe together?

Happy Fx4, Carrie

That looks like an awesome night. Was it in milwaukee? One of my other blog friends was there and had a blast too! Love the photos.

ps - I'm christy - thanks so much for your supportive comment on my guest post on scary mommys the other day. Glad I discovered your blog through it!

Cracking me up! Love that. It's like some strange 80's only Halloween party. And the stealth photography rules but when willing participants join in it's even better.

Rad pics! Too bad you didn't have time to put on your leg warmers, I know they're in your top drawer for easy access!

What a fun trip and time..

Michelle said...

Ahh, Poison. Always a favorite, though I've never seen them in concert. I always wonder when I see these things -- do people go buy this stuff SOMEwhere or do they have it still in the closet from the '80s?

Just say Julie said...

Looks like you had fun! We totally get caught taken pictures of strangers too! But it's too go too pass up :)

Corinne said...
