she was stunning.
i pulled up 2 sites on the computer with homecoming dresses on them. i told her to pick her favorite 2. the criteria was that they had to be around $50 and not strapless. then we ordered 2 sizes in each. and returned what she didn't want. i'm thankful it worked out! shopping is fun...but we didn't have the time for it.
then the shoes. we did shop for them. :-) we both thought silver. but they were all about 8 inches high and just not appropriate for a 14 year old. i was SO thankful when she spotted the grey ones! they were PERFECT! and we were BOTH happy with them. not an easy feat ;-)
it was so fun to spend the afternoon doing her hair and makeup. we had a bit of a rough week leading up to it...so it was a gift to have that sweet time together.
