Tell me about it, stud.

The only thing I have ever stolen in my life was the VHS tape of "Grease" when I was four years old from my great-aunts house. While it wasn't a serious crime, it was something that shaped my Halloween costume for next couple years. While other girls wanted to be princesses or witches or whatever else girls want to dress up as at four, I was infatuated with Sandy. I was fully decked out with the 50's style scarf, a letterman jacket (from my mom!), and the poodle skirt, except I didn't like dogs at the time so I had a cat put on it instead...
I look just like Olivia Newton John, right??

I laugh hard watching the movie now because there are so many comments and themes in the movie that just went completely over my head...At four years old, I just cared about the pretty skirts and the singing and the dancing (yes, I knew the lyrics then and I still know them today)! 

I think I am nearly due for another reprise of Sandy for Halloween...maybe even rebel Sandy at the end of the movie? With John as the handsome and charismatic Danny Zuko? I think I would have to sing "You're the One I Want" on repeat while wearing the costume, but John admittedly has a great falsetto voice, so I think its a sign that we were meant to be (Danny and Sandy, that is). 

Do I have any other Sandys out there? Please tell me you all love Grease too!

  1. Who doesn't love Grease and that photo of you is so cute :) I don't think I was ever a princess or a witch for Halloween - but quite often a bat!

  8. You looked absolutely adorable in your Grease costume! I think it's funny to watch movies I loved as a kid and pick up on themes that I was obvious to when I was younger. It's funny how innocent minded we are when we're younger.

    Best,

    1. Thank you!! I know, I think Grease has to one of the funniest ones to see the differences in from watching it when you're young compared to when you're older!

  9. Oh my gosh I love Grease! I would watch it constantly and I almost had all of the lines memorized. I hate to admit that it has been quite a while since I have seen it though. I need to get my hands on that movie!
