The Princess and the Prom
And there they go. After weeks of shopping and planning, it came down to this. The Princess and her date, along with her BFF and her BFF's date, left for dinner and a night of memories to last a life time. The girls looked stunning. The guys, like something out of a black and white movie. As I watched them leave I couldn't help but get a smidge teary eyed.
They had dinner with fifteen, yes, FIFTEEN other couples at an upscale restaurant, then walked the half block to the where the Prom was being held. Afterwards, they all drove out to the lake (yes, with parental chaperones at the lakehouse) and stayed up until the very wee hours. When the Princess got home this morning, I asked her if it was worth it -- the planning, the shopping, the spending (the not buying anything new for the next forever and a day!). She said "Absolutely." -- and promptly closed her eyes and went to sleep. I think it was a good night.
