I have to say the thing I love most about my job lately is bringing all those cool things that kids love to life. I love that all these things that I loved when I was younger are coming back around, well, besides the fashion because it was pretty hideous! I'm even going as far as teaching my kids the fine art of friendship bracelets and friendship pins. Oh, come on, you remember friendship pins! The pins you attached to your shoelaces and every time you tried to get them on there you poked yourself, but they were so cool!
So aside from the hideous fashion sense we all had in the 80's, I loved everything about that decade! Great movies, great music and...great music! I've run across the 80's quite a bit lately. First off the Star Wars movies are being re-released, I attended a performance of "Rock of Ages, The Musical" (which, if you haven't gotten a chance to see it, go and experience it...run don't walk!!! It's incredible!!), and this week I've gotten the chance to do a Ghostbusters cake for a little man who is turning 4! His mom says he loves everything about it, but of course, his favorite is Slimer. Birthday boy's mom gave me free license to come up with whatever I wanted, which is so much fun! I think I covered the gist of the movie. Proton pack and gun...check, ghost trap....check, caution tape...check and of course, SLIMER and his glorious slime!
Ok, I'm off to listen to a little Whitesnake and Def Leppard! Have a great weekend!
