Hey, here’s why I haven’t been gratituding (I know this isn’t a word, but maybe it should be), for the last several days, I designed and implemented (I’ve been working on this for months and months, but this was the three decorating-a-thon, where we work a zillion hours to fill three gyms and an entryway) a super fun giant party for the 400 + seniors on prom night, to keep them safe and not drinking and driving, which is what I think I did on my prom night–no judging–didn’t you? Aside from all the decorations, each room gets filled with all sorts of cool stuff like a life sized twister, blow up obstacle course, airbrush tattoos, food galore, a DJ, a prize table featuring the big prize of a Mac Book Air, and loads of other stuff, too. It was exhausting, and I am bone weary. Here’s a tour of a 50’s ,60’s, 70’s, 80’s themed Blast from the Past After the Prom Party.

You know when you’re at the Christmas Tree Shop at 8:00 am telling the check out woman that you’re going to use the pool noodles you’re buying to make a peace sign and she responds by saying “you can so do that.” that you’re probably spending a little too much time with the crafty crowd.
