So, my mom and I had this really great idea to make a video of us all getting ready for the Homecoming Dance. I wanted to show you how chaotic it is at my house when there’s a dance. (Actually, it’s chaotic all the time—but even more so when there’s a dance!)
There were 7 freshman girls (Bailey and her friends) and 5 sophomore girls (me and my friends) getting ready here ALL AT ONCE. Plus, everyone’s parents stopped by to take pictures, meet our dates, and lend their support. Needless to say, things were so crazy I didn’t have a chance to get to the video. I’m so bummed because it would have been great. (And it would have been FUN to have a permanent record of my sister’s crappy attitude, which could possibly be attributed to PMS—but is most likely due to her I-am-the-Princess-and-don’t-you-forget-it syndrome. Now that the weekend is over, I’d like to take her tiara and twist it into a little knot before tossing it into Lake Tahoe—never to be seen again.)
The homecoming festivities started on Wednesday with a parade and bonfire. Bailey was originally going to wear one of her (three!) dresses for this event, but the homecoming committee thought it would be too cold for formal wear.

The bonfire was so much fun—and the night ended up being not as cold as we anticipated. Mother Nature saved that for the following night.
For the official homecoming festivities at Friday night’s football game, Bailey wanted to look really special. She went to our local MAC counter to get her makeup done and wore a sparkly silver dress that looked incredible under the stadium lights. She sat on her float, bare-legged and bare-shouldered with a red nose and chattering teeth as the temperature hovered around 45 degrees.

Yesterday morning, we all slept in and enjoyed a lazy morning before starting to get ready for the dance. We prepped and primped for hours, coming out looking fly, if I do say so myself.

We all had a great time and danced the night away. Today it’s all about cleaning up our mess. Aaaughgh!
(Did I tell you my sister got three new dresses?)
