I have some great family and friends. The either didn't believe me, or they ignored me completely when I said I didn't want a big deal for my 50th. (I didn't want gifts. I'm trying to simplify my life- not add stuff to it. I didn't want a party- I would prefer a small gathering where it is easy to visit with people and not feel like I had to be "up" and all hostess-y the whole time.)
Anyway, we had some fun at my folks' house when a bunch of friends showed up wearing all their weirdest stuff. (Most of them are teachers. Teachers keep strange outfits for occasions like spirit week.)
I think if you click on the pictures, you can see them in a larger format... get all the juicy details.
