|Ready to PAR-TAY!!!|
I got the chance to attend a Girl Scout Masquerade Ball with my girls last night.
And I don't just mean my "Girl Scout girls"...I mean MY girls...in the biological sense.
Now that Nicolette is an official Daisy Scout, I get to attend some activities with BOTH my daughters. Sure...sometimes we split up if age is an issue...but I really relish the times I get to be with both.
I really love being able to spend time with both my little ladies. And I also really love eliminating the whine factor every time I take off on a GS activity and Nicolette wants to goooooooooo...
Last night was one of those times, were we all got to dress up in our Mardi Gras favorites and dance the night away.
|The Daisies learn the Macarena!!|
There was pizza and pasta and cake (of which I had none...it was my last day on Master Cleanse...a- whole-NOTHER reason to celebrate!!!), a DJ spinning tunes all night long...
|C'mon Daisies...let the big girls show you how it's done...|
...pictures with the troops...and PRIZES (Savannah won a $15 gift card to Justice, which she can use at Mall Madness in a couple weeks!!).
|Kat and Savvy show their FUN-KAY side...|
We had a GREAT time...but in typical Johnson (or should I say "Shannan"?) fashion...there was a hiccup...I had bought this luxurious feather boa to go with my mask and outfit...and I was stroking it and playing with it all night. About halfway through the night, I looked down, and my hands were BLUE!!!
|Uhhhh...Blue Woman Group, perhaps?|
The dye had apparently worn off the boa and onto my hands AND the back of my neck!! After SEVERAL washings, it STILL wouldn't come off.
As I sit here typing this the morning after with blue hands, I can't help feel rather disappointed. I had hoped to use the boa in my Valentines Night ensemble I had especially picked out for Jason...
...but unless he's into Smurfs, I just don't think it's gonna work...
Blue in Florida,
