Our battalion had a girls night out on Friday- we did a murder mystery! It was so fun, it was a beauty pageant theme and was called "Killing for the Crown". At first I thought it was gonna be weird and I was mainly in it for the purpose of getting out of the house and the free desserts but I had a lot of fun pulling out my old ball dress and getting ready for the party!
I was Miss Kentucky, my dress was even Kentucky blue! My character was pretty tame- I basically just hated one girl (Miss Texas) and loved another (Miss Louisiana). Turns out Miss Texas was the one that was murdered but almost everyone in the room had a motive to kill her.
Right before filling out the sheets of who we thought was the murderer, we could review some last minute evidence...so one of the clues was "toxic breath mints" that said made only in Arizona so I put down Miss Arizona as the killer but then I got to thinking...that was TOO obvious! So I put Miss New Mexico since she could have jumped across the border to buy the mints so it didnt look as obvious...
Turns, out my gut was right! Miss Arizona did it! No one at our party guessed correctly so Miss Arizona got the prize- $200 to a local Bed and Breakfast!!! Of course I would be the only one to guess correct then CROSS IT OFF!!!
Darn it! It was still a fun night! Dressing up always brightens up how my week has been, but it did wish that I was actually going to a ball with the hubby!
