Prom Night

Every high schooler has high expectations for prom. Thanks to movies like Never Been Kissed, 10 Things I Hate About You, and She's All That. It's seen as the peak of ones high school career. The night of all glitz and glam. It's been made into this big thing with the perfect hair, the perfect dress, the perfect dinner, everything has to be perfect. It's an exciting thing to experience! My Senior prom was no different.

 The day started with me getting up early and starting the whole getting ready routine. I showered and curled my hair, leaving it pinned up like a little old lady. I then headed Rachel's house where I did 3 girls hair and makeup (which was chaos). We ended up running behind schedule, so by the time we were done I had barely anytime to finish my own hair and do my makeup! In the end I managed to pull it off.

Dinner was at The Melting Pot. There was a big group of us which was fun, and let's be real.. the food was amazing!

The first course was an artichoke cheese dip (I'm actually drooling while typing this, oh man.)
The second course was a variety of meats and sauces. Mmmmm.
The third course was CHOCOLATE!!

The venue was the Blackstone Country Club. We walked up the brick walkways, through the big intricate gates and into the courtyard. Our eyes were met with tons of sparkling lights in the dark open sky. It was a moment just like in the movies. That moment of complete awe and admiration. I felt like I was a character in gossip girl. So put together and elegant.

When we arrived not many people were there yet, but more and more came throughout the night. We all hit the dance floor regardless, and if we weren't out dancing you'd find us at the refreshment bar. It really was the best of both worlds. 

 Here are some pictures that were taken throughout the night.

Truth is that the night ended before I was ready for it to. We danced, laughed, ate some crazy candies, and enjoyed every minute. In my opinion the night lived up to my teenage dream expectations. The only thing missing was a smokin hot date ;) but it was definitely fun being able to go and experience it with my gorgeous best friend. She brought so much joy to the night, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. It was the perfect way to end senior year. 
Here's a short montage video of the night that I made to remember the night by: (Please excuse the poor film quality and my exotic screams and laughter)

I'm sure everyone would agree that it was an amazing night. One that we will all always remember. :) 
Au revoir xx
