He called me Audrey

So, I've got a confession to make... I've never actually seen Mad Men. But that didn't stop me from getting all dolled up, 1960s style, and heading out to my sister's Mad Men-themed cocktail party on Saturday night. It was so much fun, with plenty of booze, cigarettes {not real ones!}, tasty little morsels on tooth-picks, and rockin' tunes on the turntable. Loved it...

Authentic 60s appies

 Me & Brooke

Pay no attention to the cell phone in the photo...

 Smokin' and drinkin' and hangin' with the mad men {that's my brother-in-law, surrounded by the ladies}

 Look at the guys {in their fedoras} checking us out...

 They were candy cigarettes, I swear!

It was a fabulous way to spend a Saturday night. And the best part? Alan told me I looked like Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn! I knew I married him for good reason...

PS: Queuing up Mad Men on  the Netflix now!

  2. Stop it with all the cuteness!! I love it, the whole party looks absolutely fabulous. And you DO look like Audrey!

    That first photo...I thought it was from a 60's advertisement or something. So, so cute.

    Now I want to have a Mad Men party. :)

    1. So fun! And yes, Jarrod took some great pictures. It pays to have a friend who's a photographer! (and it doesn't hurt that we all looked so hot in our 60s get-ups!)

    1. Aww, thanks! It was so much fun, Marianne! And everyone looked fabulous. The boys were dashing in their suits and fedoras. And who doesn't love to get all prettied up in a fancy dress?

      You should watch episode one of Mad Men and we can discuss!
