Hello there everyone!
Last night was my senior homecoming dance and it was absolutely everything I could have hoped, dreamed, and wished for... I tried relinquishing control for one night and tried relaxing instead... It worked out pretty well I must say!
I spent all day getting ready because I did my own hair, makeup, and nails. I wanted to do somewhat sophisticatedly sexy (what,me sexy?!), 1940's, Marilyn Monroe esque theme this year and I feel as though everything came together exactly how I wanted it to! I thrifted my dress back in July for $65 dollars, created a subtle smokey grey eye, curled my hair with foam rollers to get retro waves, and painted my nails sparkly silver. I also had to wear some incredibly high 5 and a half inch heels so my dress didn't drag on the ground! I can say with all honesty though I didn't fall,ha.
Matt looked seriously SO handsome last night... It was probably the cutest I've ever seen him look! What can I say? I'm one lucky lady to have him :) We went and took pictures at the local nature center and then went to Applebee's like we do for every school dance. After having a delicious meal we drove to the dance and seriously I couldn't have asked for a more perfect night... Matt and I aren't really big dancers, but we did dance quite a bit and of course swayed to a few slow songs, heh.
As a freshman I could have never imagined my senior homecoming being as lovely as it was... When I came home last night I laid in my bed and just thanked God so incredibly much for blessing me with a wonderful date and a wonderful time. I know years from now I can proudly tell everyone that my senior homecoming couldn't have been any more magical ❤
With much love, Lauren.
