Tonight was the 8th Grade Dance, and I'm so proud of Bethany for going! I kind of 'forced' her to go, and even though she went under duress, she had a nice time. Maybe not a spectacular time, but she enjoyed herself, looked like a princess, and was brave and daring! I told her not to worry... I remember my 8th grade dance, and it was AWKWARD! And I had a date. (Part of it was the dress - she looked amazing, but she said she didn't know how you could dance to hip-hop and rock in a nice dress. Makes sense!).
Most of all, I'm proud of her for going, and - more importantly - going with a positive attitude and open mind. But I'll let the pictures tell the story!
So last night, Cody and I went to a Halloween Social with friends for dancing. It was my first GROWN UP Halloween party, and we met before at City Tap House for drinks. We had a really great time, and Cody let me order a round of shots for everyone. So we all had a Vampire bite! Yum... Vodka, cranberry juice and Chambord! It was a wonderful time - Cody has gotten to be such a great leader.
