My "prom night" update

 Because I just KNOW you all are wondering (*giggle*)

I looked just fine. Found that I had a pair spanx like panty things in the lingerie drawer and they kept things all nice and snug. So because of that, I decided to go with a slinky (not slutty) form fitting dress in turquoise and white.

Why go for the little black dress when everyone else would probably be in black (and they were)?

DD was in awe when I came out of the bathroom - she's never seen me dressed to go out.  MIL was nearly speechless as well. Guess I did a good job ;)

The evening was fancy schmancy. A few hundred people, drinks, tons of appetizers, live band, silent auction (high price items) and a raffle. Last year DH won an annual membership to a museum via the raffle - this year nothing.

The dinner menu was uber fancy - but tasted very good. I always chuckle at how things are plated at these functions; they're works of art....all just to get eaten!

One of the main speakers was the wife of Senator Ted Kennedy. She's been active with my husband's company - as was Senator Kennedy when he was alive.

Their theme was about a garden and the centerpieces were all varieties of potted herbs and garden implements.  Table favors were seed pots (made from biodegradable bamboo) with planting medium and seeds.

We ended up leaving around 10pm (just as the dancing got started) so that MIL didn't have to stay late.  Got home just before 11pm and DD was still wide awake and wound up.

I'm glad you had a wonderful time, and that you made your hubby's jaw drop. I know that's how it would work out :-)

 I am so glad that you went with a slinky number and not black.  I'm sure you looked radiant.
