The Princess' New Ball Gown

The Father Daughter Ball is in about 19 days, and Darling Daughter is in Full Princess Mode already.
Her new gown arrived last week. It's a gorgeous color and so beautiful with beads and sequins and everything. I think it sort of looks like Belle's dress in Beauty and The Beast. I guess the Hubby gets to be the Beast! I can't wait to take pictures of her all dressed up for her night. We still have to decide what to do with her hair...leave it down and curly, put it up, straighten it, do something elaborate...give me some opinions. Please.
(Please disregard the wadded up plastic at the top of the hanger, I didn't want to edit out any of the dress. If you click the pic it will enlarge and you can see the details better.)

Naturally, with a dress this pretty, she wants to go to prom! And her Daddy says, "NO." Not this year. She has to wait until 11th grade to go. I would be a little more inclined to let her go IF we knew the boy really, really well and he took her straight there and came right back and they had a police escort and a chaperon. But she'll still have the dress next year.
Weight Loss Monday Stats of the Week:
Height: The same. I haven't grown any taller, nor have I shrunk.

Exercise: Almost none due to grandma's surgery and my possible ulcer. PAIN!
Diet: Much better...lots of freah fruits and vegetables this week. Even the kids are loving it!

Oh, and Happy Groundhog Day!

Isabel was all excited about the Father Daughter Dance this year too....got a dress for Christmas and everything. Then Paul's company announced the National Sales Meeting would be the same week as the dance. He can't take her. She cried and cried. He said he take her all dressed up to a very nice restaurant and stuff...but it's not the same. Same thing happened last year.

I hope Heather has a great time! She will look like a princess in that dress! Put her hair is a curly bun with lots of curly tendrils.
