The rain that they forecast for prom arrived... and it didn't let up. Torrential downpours all day. Thankfully a local garden centre allowed us to use their greenhouses for photos. I haven't uploaded my camera photos yet, but I did snap a few with my phone.
There were plenty of floral displays to use as backdrops. And I was really impressed with myself for managing to capture the 'checkout' sign in the background.
Prom was the fun and memorable event that everyone hoped for. And the kids all survived the traditional, weekend long, after prom. It's nerve wracking to send your kids off to a two day, unsupervised party... especially when chances are good that the stories they come back with won't necessarily be the kind of stories you want to hear. Four down, two to go.
While they partied, we furniture shopped. Well, window shopped. We haven't bought new furniture in years, but the kids are outgrowing their single beds and we're looking to see what's out there in the way of full size beds with built in storage.
Didn't find anything I loved, but came away with some ideas. Like dinosaurs for our Jurassic World crazed youngest. Could you sleep with something like this looking at you?
A few other things caught my eye. We don't have a dining set in our kitchen, we just sit at the island or in the dining room, but I've wanted to put something in that space since we moved in over two years ago. Like this set, made out of mango wood, which I've never even heard of. I love that the finished surfaces come pre-gouged. There's probably a better term for this, something that anyone who knows anything about furniture would know. All I know is that the first dent or scratch will just blend right in. Awesome.
And this. Cool piece, yes?
