Jake has a cousin who has a photography studio here in town. She does excellent work. This year she and a fellow business owner are hosting a Masquerade ball. I am so excited. Jake's cousins and I spent the day shopping trying to find the perfect gowns to wear. I haven't got to wear a gown since I got married, and I am really a prissy girly-girl at heart so I cannot wait for the big event. The cousins and I are doing a grown up Alice in Wonderland theme. Becky is Alice, Kimmie is the Mad Hatter and I am the Cheshire Cat. Becky is wearing a corset top with a taffeta petticoat skirt that she is making super cute. Kimmie is wearing a gorgeous black halter top gown with a men's suit jacket and a cute little sequined top hat. I am wearing a beautiful strapless gown with a full skirt with taffeta underneath to make it poof out. The best part is....I got it on clearance! Woohoo! I am so excited for the big event. It is going to be a great time out with family and friends. I will post pics of Jake and I and his family in our costumes after.
