Our student stake had a Luau for family home evening. They were awarding 12 tickets to the nicest steak house in town and 12 tickets to a corn maze to the apartment that was best dressed. I was thinking yesterday about what I would wear and it hit me! I was inspired to be a......
That's right....I chose to go as a pig to a luau! Apple in the mouth and all. I bought the sweats today and found it to be a win/win situation. I got to dress up as a pig, and I got some wicked sweet pink sweats.
You see Liz to the left going as a surf board. Kiley next to her as a Hula girl. Myself as a pig (yes that is a red curly tail on my behind), and Sarah was a Tiki Man. Seems like a champion team, right?!
Sarah had absolutely no peripheral vision with this mask on, and it was awesome because I could make fun of her when I was standing by her side and she had no idea. I didn't really have any reason to mock her either, I was the one in the pig suit.
Sadly enough, we didn't even get an honorable mention in the costume competition. The three groups that took 1st through 3rd consisted of people on a cruise ship, men in banana suits, and girls in full out scuba attire (minus the air tanks). Their costumes were awesome, but I was just so proud of my witty idea that I felt gypped. On the drive home I was wallowing in my sadness and exclaimed "I'm going to wear this to school tomorrow just to spite them! I'm sure I'd get at least one date out of it." Right then, I realized how awkward I looked while driving my car and my roommates thought the same. But come on! Who couldn't resist this?
The process of finding our costumes was fun and it was a great excuse to hang out with my roomies that I love so much! At the party supply store we saw these awesome glasses and had to take a picture. I am having so much fun here in Logan! I love all the people (minus the judges at the Luau) and am really feeling good about where I am in life.
