My lunch today was Jersey Shore-a-licious!
My coworker Beth’s daughter is currently in college studying to be an event planner, and as a project her and her classmates had to plan a public event and run the entire thing themselves. They decided to base their event on the Jersey Shore and call it “Jerseylicious”.
Jerseylicious was going on today at their school. Beth wanted to support her daughter, and since Jersey Shore is a guilty pleasure of mine, I was more than game. Today at lunchtime we took a break from work and dropped by the festivities. They had decorated an area of their Student Centre like the Jersey Shore, and had a bunch of Jersey Shore-themed activities going on. The students were so enthusiastic (especially Beth’s daughter), and it was really funny.
The first thing Beth and I did was hit up the “photo booth”.
Wigs and boas provided by the Jerseylicious crew.
Then we noticed there was a mini salon set up.
They would either do your hair, nails or makeup, Jersey Shore-style.
Obviously Beth and I had to get the Snooki poof.
I probably should have gotten them to do my makeup and do a little shine-proofing while they were at it…
I thought they did a pretty good job though, poof-wise.
I heard the girl next to me ask the ladies who were doing her hair if they could also trim her bangs. I should have scored a haircut! I need one, badly.
After poof-time, we moved on to Sunday Night Dinner.
Beth and I both scored the full Sunday Night Dinner, which included a slice of pizza, a red velvet cupcake (delicious), and a drink. Not too shabby for $4.
They were also selling Jersey Shore T-shirts.
We may or may not have picked up two Team Meatballs T-shirts for my boss and our coworker Mike ;). Just a little souvenir. They have a habit of wearing the same purple dress shirt on the same day, so I’m hoping that will happen with the meatball shirts. Maybe they can wear them to our next big meeting event.
We also entered into some raffle draws for movie tickets, spray tans, and some other prize packs.
We Jersey Shored it up for about 45 minutes, and then headed back to the office to show off our poofs. At first I felt kind of awkward with mine, since my hair usually has zero volume and I thought it was a big difference.
But then I kinda liked it! I thought my hair stylist did a much more subtle and classy job with my poof than Snooki does with her poof.
I am going to have to start teasing my hair and poof it up myself! I may be a poof convert.
Has anyone tried a Snooki poof?
You guys all have a Jerseylicious night now!
