I Loved Lucy

And Cindy guessed! She's a very smart cookie. The clues weren't that good, but she guessed it anyway! I've got a great prize I'll be mailing your way tomorrow.

We were Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. Jeff shaved off his whiskers to be Ricky. Dyed his hair black. I promise, he didn't look a thing like himself. It was very bizarre. He's had whiskers for probably 15 years. Oh, well, they've already started to grow back.

This isn't a very good picture of him, he's squinting, but I thought it was cute anyway.

Here are Nan and Ronnie. Their costumes were great. Everyone's was. Ronnie is a homeless person stuck in a time warp. Love that mullet! Nan was a scratched up, beat up, wicked looking girl with a very demented doll hanging around her neck.

Here's Jeff and Nan with the demented doll!
Lucy, two nurses, a hippie chick and the beat-up girl with her demented doll again. The doll loved to have her picture made!

Beverly and Cecil had worked so hard getting the decorations together and they were beautiful. Honestly, like something out of a magazine.
Crystal came over about an hour and a half before we were supposed to leave to help us get ready. I'm not kidding when I say that it took every second of that time to get me ready. That darned wig was a pain. I will never dye my hair that color that's for sure.
I had bought these fake eyelashes and nearly ruined them trying to curl them. That was a mess. She painted Jeff's hair and eyebrows. Adjusted and readjusted my dress and that stupid chef's hat.
By the time we left the party, I was taking the eyelashes off in the car and threw them out the window. My head felt like it was carrying around an extra hundred pounds with that wig and hat. Plus all the hairspray and bobby pins it took to hold it all on.
I made the pumpkin cookies again. Once again, they were a smashing success. Nobody can believe I make them. Hmmm. I actually made homemade chocolate chip ones too. Only about six dozen. I was exhausted when we went to bed last night.
I'm going to Buford this afternoon to watch Eli play his last baseball game of the season. I think I'm going to spend the night up there and help Suz tomorrow get the rest of her kids' costume stuff together.
So till tomorrow, I leave you with this.

I think you still look like Paula Deen... Oh heck, I just wanted to win:) You are too darn cute and that handsome husband... babaloooo. Love all the costumes and isn't dressing up fun, well unless you are wearing a wig. They give me a headache and so does a stupid visor. Have fun at Suzanne's and be careful on your journeys! Love you!

Totally awesome costume. You guys must have been a HIT.
Those kinds of parties are fun when everyone decides to get into it and make the effort towards costumes and all. My daughter and her husband always WIN at halloween costume parties. She comes up with great stuff.
Looked like a great party!!!!!

OMGosh! You were the cutest Lucy! I showed the girls at work and they loved the pics! Great job. I loved the blog with all the decorations and Jeff made a great Ricky. Could he talk like him, though?
