I went to a ball. Okay, by ball I really mean like a prom for Bible college students...but, still it was totes fun!
Each year in November the school I attend has a "Grad Ball" to celebrate the end of the year and all the graduates graduating. They rent out this stunning venue that overlooks the harbor. All the staff of the college as well as many of the pastors attend wearing their best dresses and most fashionable skinny suits with bow ties. As if getting dressed up to go to a fancy place isn't good enough then we were served a scrumptious 3 course meal.
Getting dressed up and going to a fancy dinner is always fun, but when you are in a season where you are spending your life savings to just survive and attend school and buying name brand TP is a luxury it was an extra special treat!
I must say that I do love being a girl and making a day of getting ready with my girls. It was one of my favorite parts of the entire day.
Know what wasn't my favorite part of the day? Being so stinking excited for Grad and then being forced to sit in traffic for an hour.
But, the good news is we got there and of corse we celebrated with....a selfie!
And a few more as the night went on.
The dinner was massive. It was like being at a wedding reception with 2,000 people. Those poor servers working and trying to serve all of us. They did awesome though. Our poor server had to put my napkin in my lap 3 times because I kept getting up to talk to people.
After the dinner we went downstairs to a separate ballroom and got our party on and danced the night away. There are no photos of this because it was a furnace in that place and no one, and I mean no one, was picture worthy when they were as messy as we were. I will say, we know how to party! There was live music and dance moves for days.
After the major sweat fest dance party it was time to head out on the town but not before a quick pic with my housemate who had just turned 23 at midnight.
