This weekend I realized that I totally forgot to tell you the story of why I have a cardboard cut-out of Mr. T. I would have shared this lovely story yesterday, but my internet was down. Boo internet! This story may not be as entertaining as it sounds, but it has some fun pictures to go along with it!
For my 29th birthday (which was a couple of years ago), I decided to throw myself an 80's themed birthday party! Of course, I went way overboard! I had a "Saved By The Bell" cake with my face photo-shopped into one of the cast photos. See-I'm right there between Slater and Zack!
I turned my basement into a 1980's dance floor and even had a photo area with props.
Of course, no party would be complete without an absurd cardboard cut out, so I purchased Mr. T. My husband kindly pointed that the cardboard cut out wasn't Mr. T, but it was the character that Mr. T played in the Rocky movies. Leave it to a man to point out the difference! :) Regardless, Mr. T was the hit of the party! Katie and Heather enjoyed a little flex time with Mr. T.
Mary Ann thought Mr. T looked a little thirsty, so she offered him a sip of her Carpi Sun. By the way, the Carpi Suns were injected with alcohol.
Eric and Mr. T became fast friends!
Where is Mr. T now? Well, he stayed up for several days after the party, but I finally had to take him down. I kept forgetting he was in the basement, and every time I went down there he would scare the holy goodness out of me. Mr. T is now safely folded up in the basement closet and ready for his next party!
