The Next Day

We did it. I had curled hair and makeup. He had a tux. In addition to walking me through the whole salon experience, BFFAmber brought accessories, hairspray and an appropriate coat. What a friend!

 

The shellacked nails

 

Curls from the back
The instagrammed makeup
The dashing escort.

I have to say that this summer's cruise did me a great service by improving my art of chitchat. One somewhat unfriendly face relaxed and smiled as soon as I said "what's your dog's name." And we ate hors d'oevres that were carried around on trays by waitstaff. Now that's classy.

Hi Sophanne, you look great. I try to visit and comment on at least two new blogs every day and today I found yours. I know what you mean about the chitchat thing. At the Poconos, on our honeymoon, for breakfast and dinner we were placed at tables with other couples. At first it was weird, but slowly but surely I broke out of my shyness and I had a blast. Happy New Year!

What a handsome and happy couple you are!

Re: pets. Smokey and I have discovered that asked a new acquaintance about their pets is a marvelous way to get them talking and animated. People LOVE their pets.
