It was truly a great party. Everyone danced and Justin rocked the mic once again with his rendition of Ice Ice Baby. You know it's a good time when my husband busts out Vanilla Ice. The funniest part is that I was on the receiving end of lots of compliments about his performance but also lots of questions about his alcohol consumption prior to our arrival at the bar (as if he might have started drinking that afternoon to get up the courage enough to rap in front of the entire crowd). I had to explain that my husband doesn't need any alcohol to grab the microphone. He's just THAT happy ALL THE TIME! He's the best date a girl could ask for.
I wore the first gown I had made in the Philippines. This dress was originally a maternity gown when I was pregnant with Arabella. I had it altered so I could wear it again...and again to this year's ball. I love wearing this yellow gown because I'm usually the only one in this daring color. My Mother picked up this great vintage gold art deco piece years ago for me. I dug it out and it paired really well with the neckline of my gown. The great thing about my vintage jewelry collection (all from my mom) is that it sits undisturbed for months and even years and then a certain dress for a certain event comes up and there is always a piece of jewelry hidden away that is perfect for the ensemble. My Mom is the best.
