My baby brother is all grown up – he had his senior prom on Friday!
The photo-resizing and his height make me look like a midget. I’m 5’4.75″, I swear.
His date’s dress was so cool – the bottom was covered in millions of tiny rhinestones that were SO sparkly in the sunshine!
A bunch of the couples at my parents’ house:
I want to go to prom again. I know so many people who say college was their best 4 years, but I loved high school.
Is it just me, or is anyone else suprised at the princess/blingy style of the gowns these days? We wore long, form fitting evening dresses back in my day (2003). And now they do short dresses for homecoming – we always wore long dresses!
Since it was 90 degrees and Doublewide doesn’t offer iced coffee, we walked down to Crazy Mocha for coffee for dessert – I chose sugar free raspberry syrup & soy milk - so refreshing!
I ran a ton of errands after brunch, including a stop at Marshalls, where I found this delicious granola for only $3.99:
And the liquor store finally had Skinnygirl cocktails in stock – I bought both the Pina Colada and Cosmo varieties and tried one at a cookout/birthday party for my mom on Sunday.
Not the greatest – it had a weak flavor and tasted slightly off – at only 9% alcohol by volume I didn’t feel too guilty adding a little extra coconut rum.
I helped my mom finish the fruit for the party – idea stolen from the tea party bridal shower.
I brought healthy guacamole (similar to my guacahummus), which was a hit – and no one knew there were beans involved.
Since I don’t partake in the burgers/hot dogs at a barbeque, the desserts were the main part of my meal:
My aunt’s whoopie pies / chocolate gobs:
Almond torte “birthday cake”:
And a coconut/orange/pineapple trifle from my neighbor:
Sugar hangover guarenteed.
High school or college? What was the best dessert you had this weekend?
