Mint. Is. Such. An. Awesome. Color. My prom dress was mint. I even made a collection for it. BAM. http://www.polyvore.com/this_seasons_it_color_mint/collection?id=1517016

Now here's a little bloggy... PROM EDITION <3
1. So first, my prom was on Saturday night. So let's do a timeline ahaha I'm such a dork.
2. Around 10:30 I had to get up so my mom and I could go get my nails done. We went to this one place and they were all booked so I had a mini hyperventilating attack (not really) until we went to this other place (that apparently a lot of girls at my school thought of too) and they got me in in 15 minutues! I got a mani and pedi in this pretty orange-y red color. Very nice :)
3. Then after that it was time for lunch so my mom and I headed over to our favorite little deli/cafe place and had some yummy quiches (they're literally like the best things ever). At that point I was getting anxious. 
4. My hair appointment was at 2:00 so we headed over to my amazing hair stylist and she did an AMAZING job, with the help of more than 50 bobby pins haha. For those of you who don't know, my hair is extremely thick and curly, but my hair stylist did a great job of recreating the style I wanted, which is a lot like Blake Lively's in this picture: http://images2.fanpop.com/images/photos/7000000/GG-2x01-Summer-Kind-Of-Wonderful-Behind-the-Scenes-blake-lively-and-chace-crawford-7039227-967-1450.jpg and unlike Blake, the braid in my hair was my real hair :)
5. After my hair we went home and I just kinda chilled, watched some TV. You Again was on one of the movie channels so we were watching that. Blah blah blah.
6. Around 4:30 my mom helped me do my makeup (a kind-of smoky green eye and black liquid liner) and I had to be careful not to touch my hair.
7. Then around 5:00 I got my dress on, my earrings and bracelet, and my shoes. All sparkly silver accessories :)) I also squeezed all my accessories into my grey-with-rhinestones clutch. That was the hardest part haha.
8. Around 5:45 all my friends showed up (8 of us total, all girls because girls run the world duh) and we took a bajillion pictures. It was fun :)
9. 6:00 the white limo pulls up! WOOT WOOT TIME TO PARTY. Haha more pictures in front of the limo. 
10. We all waved goodbye to our parents and began taking old school disposable camera and iPhone pictures in the limo on the way to our reservation at this fancy chinese restaurant. 
11. The music in the limo was incredibly loud and I barely knew any of the songs because all my friends are mainstream (and rap, which I hate) so I kinda just bopped (along with one of my friends who's like me haha) while the other 6 were doing some hardcore jamming.
12. 6:30 we got to our reservation a half hour early so we took even more pictures outside by a fountain. Everyone was staring at us. THEY WERE SO JEALOUS OF US. I mean obviously. 
13. 7:00 we got into the restaurant. Got seated at a big table, surrounded by a few other prom groups from other schools. We were the hottest of course.
14. Lots of talking and laughing and eating. Mmm I had honey chicken and brown rice, so good <33
15. Around 8:15 we left the restaurant, back in the limo. More loud crazy music and crazy dancing and some drinking of colored water in champagne flutes. More disposable camera pictures.
16. ONE THING CAME ON THE RADIO AND I COMPLETELY FREAKED OUT. Only me and my friend (the one who doesn't listen to rap either) were singing and jamming along but whatever it was my limo it was AMAZING gotta love that 1D came on on our way to prom :)))
17. 8:45 we got to prom, which was at a fancy hotel. We checked in and actually got to keep our invitations! :) Then we had a professional group photo and walked in.
18. The actual prom extended from this lobby area into a small ballroom-like room that had a tiny dance floor and a ton of tables. It was really dark in there with some lights be the DJ. Outside in the lobby area there were some tall tables and two long tables that had lots of desserts and drinks and hors d'oeuvres including a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN. I was so mad because no one told anyone they were having that much food so I wasn't even hungry for it :/
19. 6 of my group was out dancing on the dance floor for the majority of the time because the music selection was very weird and random, a lot of rap and pop music so my one friend and I only danced to like Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Taio Cruz, and a few others that we knew. The DJ also played some weird slow songs included "Let's Get It On" which was let me say, very inappropriate haha but whatever, some of the couples danced to it. But mostly there were a lot of big groups like ours. Anyway the dancing was fun even though I can't dance.
20. And then we did A LOT of socializing and mingling. Saw a lot of dapper guys haha. Talked to a lot of people I hadn't in a long time, took some more iPhone pictures, hugged a lot of people, complained about our feet hurting (mine were majorly and I couldn't take them off because my dress was too long!) and overall it was just a blast, a really cool experience even if the music was weird haha. 
21. Of course there were teacher chaperones everywhere but for the most part I think everyone behaved xD
22. The prom was on until midnight, but my group left around 10:45. We were all hot and our feet were paining us haha so we left in our limo and headed for the bowling alley.
23. We got to the bowling alley around 11:45. There weren't many people there but the lights were down and it was apparently 90s grunge night because they had screens down playing lots of old music videos haha. We all got our bowling shoes and took some pictures in our bowling shoes and prom dresses :)
24. Most of us changed out of our dresses after awhile because it's pretty difficult to bowl in prom dresses! Especially since all but one of ours was long. I got second place the first round though! Woot woot <3
25. We played 2 rounds and I sucked on the second one... haha but it was really fun though :)
26. At 1:00 my parents picked us up and we went home and had a sleepover. And ate lots of junk food with a little fruit and fruit dip haha. Gotta be a little nutritious xD
27. I think I went to bed around 4:00... :)
28. SUCH A FUN NIGHT. I'm so glad it all went well and it was just amazing now I cannot wait for graduation haha 18 more days!!
29. Oh yeah this is apparently my group's jam now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpOR_HuHRNs&ob=av2e
