Sometimes I dream about pizza.
And sometimes I eat it!
This past Friday, 15 of my favorite friends gathered to have a gigantic make-your-own-pizza party and movie night.
We aim to get together about once a month for movie night and we do potluck food themed around the movie.
This month: E.T
Hence the pizza!
(Reece's Pieces were part of dessert.)
It was seriously a blast. I made all the pizza dough a few days before Friday, and Mark and I arrived a little early to pre-cook the pizzas.
In the meantime, Casey decided we were all going to run off and start our own circus. Through discussion and laughter, Mark was designated our ring master. I'm apparently a tiger trainer. We also had a traipse artist, an elephant rider, a circus freak, a motorcycle in a cage driver, someone shot out of a canon, I think there was a clown, and probably more.
This whole thing remained theoretical, of course. As many of our silly nights do. But it was hilarious watching Casey come up with all kinds of roles for us to play in her imaginary world. I tell ya, conversation is never dull with Miss Casey.
|Sorry for the yellow photos, again. We're working on getting better lighting.|
Before every dug in, we set out all the ingredients and nibbled a few pepperoni!
Everyone had a blast decorating, and I'm pretty sure every person in that room was stuffed to the GILLS with homemade tasty pizza.
A little more silliness ensued before we headed downstairs to the TV room, cuddled up with blankets and Reece's Pieces cupcakes and UFO cookies, and relived a childhood memory.
It's kinda crazy to go back and watch a movie you remember only from childhood.
So many adult jokes, hidden meaning, grown up scenarios.
I didn't realize Elliot's mom was going through a divorce in the movie, or that Elliot got drunk on beer via E.T, or that the mom was CLUELESS to E.T living in her home under her nose until the very end of the movie when the boys actually show her E.T.
Check out those hair ribbons though! I miss those. Oh, precious Drew Barrymore.
Re-watching old movies from childhood with friends: Most excellent entertainment.
I highly recommend it.
