it was in love i was created and in love is how i hope i die

well another valentine's has come and gone, and i finally (after a two year hiatus) reinstated my annual themed party in honor of the celebration of love and all things pink! this year i chose 1940, a theme which i chose on a whim, and then really regretted, but in the end, like most other things, it turned out really excellent. allow me to share!

wiw: friday february 12, 2010: hoorah!

it was really such a nice time. thanks to everyone who could make it. next year will be the 70's because.....well because i won't have to spend 8 hours doing my hair.

saturday i went to the opera with my long-time valentine, stephanie porto. thanks also to my dad, for generously gifting the tickets to me. here are some blurry captures of our "rich people" outfits. really, stephanie called me a few days before and said "let's dress like we're rich" HOLLER. it was great because i needed an opportunity to wear this perfect mid 60's black lace number which i bought near my country house at a yard sale for TWENTY-FIVE CENTS. you can gawk at my updo. don't worry. i was gawking too.

the long weekend was filled with fun and friends, and my life is increasingly this way and decreasingly school-ways. oops! how can i concentrate on teeth with so many boyyyyyys around?? midterms are coming and if i survive, if i prevail, if i don't flunk out, my sense of self may be restored. i'm actually fairly smart. who knew??

i will leave you with this sweet small video created by denise as a valentine's present for me me me! you may view it here

love love love love love love!

happy valentine's day!
