Great Gatsby Party

Last Friday, Matt and I headed to our friend Brooke's Great Gatsby themed birthday party. We realized on the way over that we hadn't dressed up for a party since college. And after how much fun we had Friday night, I'm thinking we need to not go another 6 years before we go to another one.

Birthday Girl!

Bday girl with her hubs- Ryan's hair was fantastic... doesn't it kinda look real?! 
These two crazy kids moved into their house the WEEK before and still managed to throw a ridiculous party! 

Me and my dapper man. ;)

Love this... Megan and Andy playing the roll quite well ;)

This crazy guy happens to be my sophomore year Prom date. He missed the memo on the party theme and came dressed as a troll. Inappropriate on so many levels, yet hilarious.


In some ways, I feel like this picture describes our relationship- there's no telling what I'm laughing at, but Matt's going right along with it.

Thanks to Mary for letting me borrow her grandmother's flapper dress! I was feeling quite authentic in my little getup.

And thanks to Megan Wallach for these shots! You guys have got to go check out her blog- it will be one of your new favorite reads!
