So last night was the big night I've been waiting for...my senior prom!
My day first started out with going to get my hair done which was.... an absolute disaster. Sigh, I think I have the prom hair curse because every year for the past three years something goes wrong. I wanted a retro inspired half updo with super soft, romantic curls. Not to hard, right? The stylist backcombed my hair to death and didn't bother to smooth it out, thus giving me a lovely bird's nest on my head. I went home practically in tears because 1. it was horrible 2. I felt terrible to have my parents spend money on something so horrible looking. I ended up fixing it and doing what I could and even though I wasn't super pleased with my hair, it was still better than before, hehe ;)
Matt and his parents came over in the evening and we went to take pictures! It was honestly the most beautiful day we could have ever had. 75 degrees, sunny, and a slight wind. Perfect. After pictures we headed off to Applebee's for dinner which did not disappoint as usual!
Prom I am sad to say was pretty disappointing. I don't know, I was upset because I wanted it to be this fantastic, magical, memorable night for me to end my senior year and it just wasn't. Sometimes I realize I put too much expectation on myself to have a perfect time and when it's not, I end up disappointed. Matt and I just really aren't that big of dancers and well, the whole point of prom is to dance! Nonetheless, we still got a few dances in there and it was fun. Just not as wonderful as I always dreamed it to be.
After prom was at the local bowling alley where it was free along with pizza and drinks. It was super fun (and Matt beat my butt!) but I was SO tired. I am a total baby and can't stay up past 12. It wasn't until 1:30 when we got home and I was beat.
All in all, it was a beautiful time and I don't regret anything. Even though it wasn't what I dreamed it to be I still had such a fun time dressing up, eating out, and having a fun time with my handsome date :)
What was your senior prom like?
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. I am SO sorry if you've emailed me or tried to get a hold of me these past few days. With the fashion show, prom, and today was my sister's First Communion I have had no time to breath. So sorry and I'll be getting back to you soon! ❤
