I treated Abbey this weekend to a bit of pampering before prom. We did her nails, she got a pedicure, I took her to get a cool up-do and then to Sephora to get her makeup done. Fun fun day. I didn't have a whole lot of girly-girl time with her growing up as she would rather have been playing in the mud so these girly-girl moments are so much fun.
And she looked beautiful. She is beautiful. I don't know what happened to my mud-playing child. Actually, I do know. She's very much still there but tonight she looked like a princess. And I think she felt like a princess too. So gorgeous. So smart. And I'm so proud of her. And her date/boyfriend looked pretty dang sharp as well.
They are SO cute. And just loved posing for pictures. Ok, not really, but they did it.
And looked at me like I was crazy trying to get them to do anything other than just stand there.
And also looking at me with the I can't believe you're not done yet face.
But I wasn't. Because the dog wanted to join in.
So, of course, we let him...and got one more final posed shot. I think the dog actually wanted his picture taken.
And off they went. To prom for a few hours and an after-prom (chapperoned of course) until 5am. Fun fun fun.
I think they should have more proms for grown-ups. I'd take a day full of pampering and dressing up like a princess any day.
