arrested development party


Taste the happy Michael! As of today, Arrested Development is back!  In anticipation for this day, I threw an Arrested Development party a couple weeks ago to get everyone in the AD spirit [or to persuade them to start watching the first 3 seasons].

The invitations were full of AD references.  For those that got the invite and didn't understand a thing - watch the show already!

For the gift bags, I ordered some awesome pencils from Earmark.  [Actually Eric did as well as a surprise for me not knowing I also was ordering them.  Anyway, a big thanks to Earmark for all their help figuring this out + canceling one of the orders.]

BANNERS.  There are so many great banners in the first 3 season.  My friend Amber was kind enough to help me make a bunch.  [SPOILER ALERT - in the new season there are more banners.  WITH GLITTER.  Looks like another party will need to happen.]

Some light reading if anyone got bored.


Stair car cookies!  [or more accurately, UPS cookies turned into stair cars]  Also, a nevernude and a cookie with diamond creme.


Accessories from my Rita costume.  [It was pointed out to me that my costume was made out of things I already owned, except the hat and bracelet.  Not sure how I feel about this realization.]

Rita + George Michael.

While taking photos, this happened.

Unfortunately I made a huge mistake and forgot to serve the hot ham water and ice cream sandwiches at the party.

P.S. I'm sorry if anyone got glitter all over while opening their gift bags.  Blame Tobias for the idea.
