:::It's Party Time!:::

Best time ever. I tell you what, when there is dancing on the program, East Coast people (or maybe it's just non-Mormons?) actually get up and dance -- younger, older, couples, singles, those with rhythm and those without. It was awesome. The dance floor drew more and more people as the night went on. Nothing is better than going out on there and letting loose with the music while singing along loudly with the band. We had a crazy good time.

We danced until midnight, then people sort of dissipated to after parties or to pick up their cars from the valet service. My friend Lindsay and I chillaxed in the lobby while she waited for the taxi line to dwindle down, then I went back to my room and watched tv on my giant flat screen until 2 am.

I'm so glad I stayed over. It was totally worth it to be able to get ready at the venue and not worry about being late. It was also nice to have a landing spot to ditch my shoes and other things as the night wore on, and to not think about traveling home (even though I live like 10 minutes away) once the party was over.

This morning I woke up, took a bath in the big tub, ate the chocolate covered strawberries I took from the party last night, cleaned up my gigantic mess, then ordered room service (not good) and watched more tv. It's so nice to have tv every once in a while.

I stayed in my room until 30 minutes before check-out, then I took a cab down Pennsylvania back to the Hill.
On the way home I saw some protesters far away on the Capitol lawn that were a mix of Tea Cuppers and immigration proponents. I wonder how they got along...

As soon as I got back into my room I cleared off my bed and crashed for many hours. I'll probably be up all night, but that's okay because tomorrow I'm catching a 6 am flight to Texas. Yeehaw!

you clean up quite nicely!
I'm sure if I could get some alchohol down me, I just know I would be a dancin' fool.

what a bash!

You looked stunning! I especially loved the red lipstick--what a great shade! What is it called? I am a bit obsessed with red lipstick these days--Floridians don't so much appreciate it, but whatever :)

Burls! I thought about you the whole time I was picking my makeup out!

I used a Sephora brand liner and lipstick. The liner is Pleasant Plum. The lipstick says "Sephora Rouge 9187A R02". The liner went on incredibly, incredibly smooth and stayed on all night long. The lipstick was very smooth as well. I would totally buy more. Neither feathered or got clumpy or kernal-ly. I always have a problems with that.

You looked wonderful.

I nearly cried when I saw the place settings and the butter roses. Spectacular.

Have fun in Texas!

Thanks for letting an old married woman live vicariously for the night in your shoes (the pretty silver peep-toed ones)! You are gorgeous!

I'm back to admire the photos again. And to say that I think I would have quite a good time dancing if I could have a couple cocktails first...
