We Clean Up Pretty Nice

Luncheon with Mom and daughter was yesterday. We had a great time with a wonderful group of ladies. Annie brought one of her very best friends, KayKay, and they looked quite stunning all dressed up.... and disconcertingly older than their 14 years.

Our table looked good; unfortunately I didn't get a before was fun to eat off my mothers fine china and use the good silver and cloth napkins.

Isn't it interesting how little we 'dress up' any more in this day and age. Since our theme was Haunted Mansion the ladies at our table were all dolled up, and many other gals came in costumes to fit their tables themes. But so many gals just showed up in jeans and casual shirts....I was a bit surprised. Not that that's necessarily a bad's my preferred mode of dress. I just think there are times to show some respect for an event, and with all the hard work these ladies put into this luncheon this was one of those times....but maybe that's just me.

ps Mom....we had such a good time and truly appreciated all your efforts. The salads were delicious and the company was stimulating....and hilarious!

It has been a very sad day for our family due to the loss of our cat of 15 years. We had to put Sassy to sleep this morning.

Have a Happy Harvest Season!
Happy Fall A Days,

Wow! Your daughter is beautiful. And you have blonde hair...I envisioned you as a brunette. Funny how that works. :)
