Yesterday, was my Patriotically themed birthday party. We played the game True American and were challenged with dressing up as ‘Murican as possible.
I ran to Goodwill and found the above shirt. My mom found tons of red, white and blue star spangled beads for guests to wear.
I also had a headband with ribbons and lengths of nylon that looked like red, white and blue dreadlocks. And, it flashed the ‘Murican colors through the dreadlocks.
My brother went all out on costume. He wore American flag karate pants, as seen on Napoleon Dynamite. It was super fly.
I don’t have any photos, of course, because my phone died not long after I got home. It was great fun! In addition to the drinking game, there was tons of food. We had potato soup, veggies, crackers, sweets, spinach artichoke dip. We ate like kings. Or shall I say, presidents.
I got to blow out a candle inside the longest cave in the world when my husband led a tour group in singing ‘Happy Birthday’. Another good birthday to add to the list of awesome.
Sorry I haven’t been posting recently as up to my birthday I have been battling a stomach virus.
