Homecoming...The Dance

So, I realized that getting ready for a Homecoming dance when your date is already living with you is much different than Homecoming in High School when your date picks you up at the door and sees you in your formal garb for the first time. Because I like traditions, before we left, I made Jeff close his eyes whenever he came near me, as I was determined not to let him see me all ready before he "picked me up" for the dance. As soon as our friends Ryan and Chelsea came over to double with us, I told Jeff he could open his eyes :) We all walked out to the car together, as I told Jeff traditional things like, "It's so good to see you!" "Thanks for picking me up," and "This will be a lot of fun!" (Some of you might think these traditions are cheesy, but I pretty much live by them :)The dance was at an aquarium in Sandy, UT. We had a great time making Message-in-a-Bottle crafts, dancing, looking at the eels, penguins, jellyfish (this was my favorite part as it reminded me of Dory in Finding Nemo, "Boing BOING, BOING!!!"), eating crapes, and taking lots and lots of pictures. When the night ended, and Jeff was walking me up to our door, I said, "I had a great time! Thanks for taking me to Homecoming" :)

Homecoming...The Answering

NOW for a creative an cute answer...CANDY! The next day I went to the store and bought several boxes of candy to use in my answer to Jeff. As you can see by the pictures below, a trail of notes an candy said, "Hey BIG HUNK! I can't believe a HOT TAMALE like you asked me out! You were a LIFESAVER to ask! When you did, I was filled with (ALMOND) JOY and got BUTTERFINGERS! It would be GOOD AND PLENTY to go to the dance with you! Love, your SWEETTART."

Homecoming...The Asking

Remember how good you felt when you came home, went up to your room, and saw that you had been asked to a high school dance in a creative and cute way? Well, just a few days ago, I felt like I was in High School again as I came home find I had been asked to BYU's Homecoming dance by Jeff. A trail of flower pictures led me from our front door into our bathroom where I found a pretty blue betta fish swimming around in the tub, a bouquet of flowers, and a note that said, "Of all the fish in the sea, I choose you to go to Homecoming with me!" Aww...thanks Jeff! After we placed the flowers in water and got Bubbles' new fish tank set up, I immediately called my mom and had her overnight me one of my past "dance dresses." Thanks mom!
