Fancy, Fun, and Fahrenheit

Well, I had quite the eventful weekend. Friday night was the big formal. Don’t I look fancy?! 😀

the only thing missing in this picture is a date!

I almost didn’t make it though! As I was getting ready, one of my students called me because someone in her house had broken a window – and by window I mean sliding glass door. Apparently it was safety glass because there was a giant hole in the center and the rest of it was shattered into millions? of tiny little pieces that stayed in the frame. So, of course, while they waited for the glass to be boarded up, they did everything in their power to make the rest of it fall without actually touching it (slamming the front door, etc.) What part of don’t play with broken glass is so hard to understand?! I don’t care that you thought you were helping, you also thought throwing a ball hard enough to break a sliding glass door in the house was also a good idea. I don’t really trust your logic right now!

Anyway, the dance was fun, but a little short on food. I ate as many pigs in a blanket as I could find! Pump set to vibrate, tucked at the waistband, with trusty remote in hand, and I was good to go.

very thankful to find that the remote I bought with my orignal MM512 also works with my new 522

Since, I was reliving my young adulthood by attending the dance, where else should I go after but Denny’s?! Arrived home around 2 am, so I did not get up on Saturday until 11:30 am. Watched a friend’s baby so she could go get a pedicure with her mom (I’m such a good friend, right?!), and they treated me to Panera after.

After noticing how absolutely pale I was compared to my friends in the formal pictures, I headed to the beach with one of them on Sunday. The sky, sand, and water were BEAUTIFUL, and I was kicking myself that I forgot to bring my camera. Luckily I was able to hijack my friend’s and snap a few shots with hers and with my cell phone.

What you are looking at is the pump tubing escaping from the bottom of my tankini to the pump hiding under my hat. Life is good, isn’t it?

    You look so nice. It’s fun to dress up fancy once in a while, isn’t it?

    I can’t believe those students wanted to make all the glass fall out of that sliding glass door. Nevermind….yes, I believe it.

    Other than that, sounds like a great weekend!

    Thanks gals!

    Donna – well, I got the estimate for the door and it will be between $500 and $600 so I guess they will learn a good lesson there!
