Mirthful Monday #6

Hey kids. Since it's the middle of May, I figured an entry on something I thoroughly enjoy would be appropriate. That something? Getting dressed up.

There's something about putting on a pretty dress, doing my hair and makeup all nice, and hanging out with a bunch of awesome people who have done generally the same thing that just makes me really happy. I went to prom on Friday. It was a lot of fun, and I got to wear a sweet dress that my friend (very kindly!) offered to let me borrow. It worked out really well. I thank God for giving me a BFF who is about the same size and shape as I am. It was really fun to get all dolled up and go out and eat a fancy dinner and dance with The Boyfriend, who was looking fantastic (as usual) in his tux (HIS tux, not a rented one, mind you). And now I can say that I own a pair of hoop earrings!

Since I go to a different school than The Boyfriend, I basically have twice the opportunities for dressing up than normal. This Saturday is my school's "prom," which is really called Junior/Senior Banquet. The juniors decorate the commons in our school (looks like a smallish gym but is used as the cafeteria at lunch) and then all the juniors and seniors dress up and eat together and the sophomores serve and entertain. The teachers say cute things and do skits and we all have a fantastic time. Sadly, The Boyfriend can't go because no outside-of-schoolers are allowed, however I still plan to have a blast. I have this FANTASTIC dress from the 80s (literally) that I can't wait to wear! I'll try and post pictures at some point.

Anyway, here's to getting all dolled up with your friends and having a great time! (Also, going out and doing something after, while still dressed up, is really awesome. We went laser tagging after prom, and I've gone bowling in a long dress for events in the past. Whee!)

Hopefully this made you smile, and maybe it made your Monday a little happier. Anyone else excited for prom/etc? Or has anyone already gone?
