I’ve always been a fan of the 50′s. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved the clothes, the music, the dancing, and I’ve always thought if I could pick another decade to grow up in, I would pick the 50′s.
My jump rope team in school did a show set to 50′s music, and it was the best! We were all obsessed with the music, and we LOVED getting to wear our poodle skirts! That year, my birthday party theme was 50′s, and it is to this day still one of my favorite parties ever.
We all wore poodle skirts, we played 50′s music all night, and my cake was decorated to look like a record!
Because of our love of the 50′s, Grease was one of our favorite movies! The music was so great, and while we all wanted to be Sandy, we also all had a part of us that wished we could be a Pink Lady :) We had our own little “You’re the One That I Want” performance!
My friends are probably going to kill me for posting these pictures :)
That year at the talent show at school, we performed “You’re the One That I Want”, and we had the best time!
That’s me in the middle, towering over all of the others. Haha!
When I found out that FOX was doing Grease Live, I was beyond excited! I feel like the movie represented such a fun part of my childhood that it’s always been special to me. I couldn’t wait to see it recreated, and I was THRILLED that Julianne Hough was picked to play Sandy!
I was super pumped when Ashton suggested we get a group together and watch it at her house. She invited a friend from work and a few TVP girls, and we had the best time! I really wanted to go full-on 50′s for the party, but I figured that since we’re grownups, I should tone it down a bit. I couldn’t resist getting a few fun decorations though!
You have no idea the amount of self-control it took for me not to wear my poodle skirt and do the hand jive in the middle of Ashton’s living room.
It was such a fun night! I loved getting to share my love for the movie with these girls, and I loved how FOX interpreted the movie. I have watched it I think three times so far, and I even rewatched the original on Saturday night :)
Did YOU watch Grease Live?

Please only always post pics from your childhood :)
How did you like Grease Live? I’m still not 100% if I loved it, I need to watch it again! I love your 50′s party!
