Chilli and The 80's

You are probably wondering what chilli and the 80's have to do with each other. The answer is nothing! Let me explain...

Today the kids' school had their annual Fall Festival. They have a chilli cook-off which I entered and much to my complete shock and amazement - WON! Woo Hoo!

I honestly don't think my chilli was the best tasting - but it was definitely the best looking!! The other contestants were all men, and well let's face it - their fancying up skills were not that great, and when I say not that great, I mean they were zip, zero, zilch. But their chilli was absolutely delicious!

You can see the bowls of chilli here, and mine would be the one with the sour cream, cheese, green onions, and a big ol' hunk of cornbread! Yum!!
That's my wonderful amazing neighbor, Wally - he was one of the judges, and he said they were all raving over the cornbread. So I think my cornbread won me the chilli cook-off. Go figure!!

Now onto the 80's daughter was invited to a birthday/Halloween party tonight and we decided to channel my inner 80's teenage self and dress her like and 80's girl.

I made her a skirt this afternoon (my sewing for the day to keep me on my goal) and had a lot, and I mean, A LOT of fun doing some lovely bright blue and pink eyeshadow.

Oh and don't forget the side ponytail!

Her and I are going to be matching 80's girls for Halloween this year, though I'll be going down more the Flashdance route with the whole cut up sweatshirt thing. I'll be sure to take pics of us both!

Congrats on the Chilli! You go girl. On the other hand, how sad that my "high fashion" 80's look is now costume attire... That's just too sad, LOL!

Congrats on the chille contest! You would be my mother's new best friend - she enjoys chillies so much that she makes her own as well.
Like the 80's outfit. Your girl looks quite grown up with the make-up...
