Big Hair and Polka Dots.

So, it seems like just yesterday that I was at the Grease sing-along, but I'm seriously SUCH a sucker for these shows...

... so I went to another one.

This time it was Hairspray, baby!
If you have never seen this, you need to get your butt over to the nearest TV or Blockbuster or whatever, and watch. It is literally one of the best movies ever.
At least, in my humble opinion.

So I got myself all geared up to try out Elsie's Beehive, covered loofah and all,
but it turned out to be really, really tricky and I kind of got too frustrated to continue documenting my efforts.
One day I will conquer that darn hairstyle! For now, you can see the eh-attempt I had.

Oh, yes.

Me and the girls, Karina and Lena, decked out in our polka dots.
Coincidentally, these dresses are all old stuff- my dress was first used in our 7th grade production of "12 o'clock Rock"- a 1950's Cinderella, Karina's dress was one that I thrifted from Goodwill, and Lena's is one that she wore at our 8th grade graduation!

You can also see my attempt at the beehive...

Just like last time, we got legit props.
We waved our picket signs for TV integration during "I Know Where I've Been", we rang little bells during (you guessed it!) "I Can Hear the Bells", we sucked lollipops along with Penny, and my personal favorite:

Our twist tie "rings" signifying our marriage to the one, the only,
Link Larkin.

In all seriousness though, who can resist this kid?

So I decided, for today's Monday Melody, to give us some Zac Efron lovin' in the Hairspray song "It Takes Two".
You actually only hear about two seconds of it in the movie, right before he tells the kids to cut class to come to the audition, but the song itself is such a sweet ballad!


Awkward Confession: In 2007, when this movie came out, I vowed that someday I would be serenaded by someone singing this song...

Nope, hasn't happened yet.


And being the froyo lovers we are, we couldn't resist the urge to go out for a treat after the movie.
I mean, they were handing out Hello Kitty spoons- that's incentive enough!

You are so adorable. I love this movie! Also, the Hello Kitty spoons are amazing! I thought it was exciting when I went to get froyo the other day and they had spoons in pretty colors!
