The theme for our Prom this year is Masquerade! So, as is the now-annual tradition, I have the privilege of planning/coordinating the aesthetic details, in all their (hopefully creative) glory! After last year’s fishy-centerpieces and Enchantment under the Sea theme, I was pretty excited at the potential for timeless elegance as a decorative choice thisContinue reading “Prom: Life’s a Ball!”

One Swell Picnic!
What is a picnic without scrumptious food? Not too long ago I had the chance to help host a little picnic in honor of a friend. Despite being rained indoors for the majority of the day, I managed to put together some tasty treats for the meal – because what is a picnic, if notContinue reading “One Swell Picnic!”
Soda Shoppe Sock Hop!
It‘s a Soda Shoppe Sock Hop!!! What better way to brighten up the winter months than with the charming colors of the fifties and the sweet classical feel of a soda shoppe? Think of young Jimmy Stewart serving up soda fountain drinks. . . via Now, as my three student Dance Committee volunteers and IContinue reading “Soda Shoppe Sock Hop!”
The Bridal Olympics
Everybody’s talking about the Olympics, and for good reason. They are the pinnacle of athletic excellence and the gold (medal) standard for achievement in the world of sports. So, I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised when my future sister-in-law’s maid of honor told me that the chosen theme for the impending Bridal ShowerContinue reading “The Bridal Olympics”

It might sound hokey or clichéd, but at a school where every individual student has struggled with a multitude of unique challenges, there is aContinue reading “Good Ideas For Thanksgiving: Part Two”
Party like a BOSS(ton Terrier)
Growing up, my family was never much for birthday parties. Celebrations tended to require extensive house-cleaning, rendering parties less attractive by the relative unpleasantness of the preparation. Now, I am not a rebel. Ask anyone. I’m a traditional, rule-following kind of girl. I am not one of those kids who left home and did everythingContinue reading “Party like a BOSS(ton Terrier)”
Breaking Dawn: Party Like A Cullen
Mock me. Judge me. It won’t change a thing. About three things I am absolutely positive. First, perhaps the Twilight Saga Series should not be taken too seriously as they are about teenagers and Vampires. Second, there is a part of me, and I don’t know how dominate that part might be, that is capableContinue reading “Breaking Dawn: Party Like A Cullen”
Where did July go? I know, I know, it’s not over just yet, but I am shockingly behind myself on practically every front, which would be woefully embarrassing if I lacked a reason, but (thankfully?) my excuse is as timeless as a tacky 80s flick. Yessiree, I got mono. Before you ask, NO, I haveContinue reading “Belated Independence”
