Homecoming Part deux


Makailas before picture. I should note she had just previously cut 10 inches off of her hair for "locks of love", so we were a little nervous as what to do with the shorter hair .
We ended up adding some big ringlets and I thought it ended up so cute. She was worried she had 80's hair, I told her I could give her some hairs hair is she wanted some.
We then headed over to a good friend of mine who does make up and she helped her with that part of the evening. Makaila normally does not wear makeup so she was feeling a little nervous about that.
Her dress was a cute sweater dress with a green tank underneath. She had on a owl necklace and earrings. She had some cute green shoes to match the tank. She wouldn't let me post a picture of the whole makeup and hair she was feeling a little self conscious I think (not use to wearing that much makeup) but I thought she looked gorgeous. She went with two of her girlfriends and had a pretty good time. I think it will be a while before we get her to another dance, but that's okay with mom.

Makaila and her friends, you can't see her real well up close but trust me she looks amazing. They had a fun dinner at Chili's and then mom ruined all the fun when she said they had to home at 11:30. The joys of a strict mom.

Tell Makaila thanks for letting you share her lovely event with us. She loos so pretty... But of course, I've thought that in others pix you've shared, too... I guess pretty is just pretty, make up or no... ;D

I'm a fuddy-duddy mom, too. And I was the one to always wait up and talk to them when they got home. They KNOW if they are late, I WILL KNOW! ;D

At least they'll look back and realize all the things we did do because we love them! (((HUGS)))

Your daughter looks lovely! It’s wonderful that she donated hair to Locks of Love! I donated 13” two years ago, and it’s a wonderful organization. I’m following you now!

WOW! I feel like my comment may get lost in the mix here... and the WOW also applies to Makaila. So grown up and girlie! (Ooo... she'll probably hate that word?!) She does look cute though and dances are super fun. I love the new 'do!

I had strict rules like that too when growing up and now I thank my parents for it! I am a better person because of it.

I just found your blog through a Thursday blog hop! Have a great night.
