80s Night!!

People here love their theme parties. You can’t go on any form of public transportation on a Friday or Saturday night without seeing groups of girls all dressed up in some theme or a bunch of guys with crazy tshirts and wigs. Many times it is bachelor/bachelorette parties (the call them hen parties and stag dos here). There are also several 80s bars/clubs in London. I think you see where I am going with this. My friends and I have talked about doing an 80s night forever but just hadn’t done it, until a few weeks ago. It was Tamara’s birthday so we all decided to put on our best leg warmers and stretchy pants and party it up 80 style! One thing that I did not consider was that because none of us live really close to each other we were just going to meet at the club. That, of course, means that I would have to ride public transportation dressed in my 80 get up. Awesome. The actual club was interesting. It has posters of 80 bands and Top Gun was playing on a loop at random tvs scattered out around the bar area. The dj played 80s music and we danced and danced and danced. Let me take you through some of the better pictures.

The awesome dance floor. It lit up and changed colors. Rad.


Who knows what I was doing? Don’t you love the crimped hair!


Clockwise from top: Katie, Bridgette, Taiya and Tamara and Andrea.


Awesome dance moves.


Jeanne bought me these rocking leggings and I had no idea where I would ever wear them. Now I know. And they were rockin’.


Giving our feet a break and playing with the 80s paraphernalia that we bought.


Goofing with Taiya, who is Tamara’s friend who came to see her from Seattle!


I love this picture. I think it is hilarious. Embarrassing but hilarious.


Fun night. Fun girls. Fun pictures. I hope we have more fun girls nights like this soon!!

    Looks like you had a blast. I would have loved to see all of you on the tube dressed like that. Probably wouldn’t stand out as much there as you would in the US!

    Hey they had “spirit week” this week for homecoming and Kate went 80’s too! Although, you know K8, she had to be different. She wore skinny jeans, one of Dave’s Van Halen concert shirts (from 25 years ago), combat boots, got her hair as curly as possible, and wore a bandana! Wish I had taken pictures! Oh well, maybe someone did!

    You really look you are having fun. People ask me if you get lonesome in London and I have to say that I think you are having a time of your life. I love the hairdo and the leggings. Can’t wait to see you and Mike at the end of the month. Nana

  5. Dad says:

    Gosh, I hope Mike escorted you on the tube!

    Glad you are having the time of your life!

    You ROCK in those leggings! I knew you would find a place in London to wear them.

    Promise me you’ll go to Petticoat Market! I loved it! Miss you guys and can’t wait to see you!
