When Moms Go Out...

A few weeks ago, Teagan's preschool hosted a "Dad's Night." There was a baseball theme and they had hot dogs and popcorn and played games and had a tournament (which the kids, of course, won). Last night, it was "Mom's Night." The school hosted a "Bruisers and Ballerinas Ball." Semi formal attire... so I wore the dress and heels in the pic I posted yesterday. And we borrowed a dress for Teagan from my friend, Amy. Love this pic- this is Teagan's friend, Ethan. I loved his little suit and tie!! Remember how I went and helped my friend, Satch (she's the school's cook and did all the yummy treats for the Ball)? And that one of the pretzel rods that I dipped and sprinkled had already started to set so the sprinkles didn't stick? Satch was kind enough to save that special pretzel rod just for me!! We did some dancing and singing and played with balloons and hokey-pokey-ed. And I started to notice the lovely fashions around me. Everyone had taken some special care in appearance for the evening. I was especially taken by the variety of shoes that the moms were wearing!! I gotta say... heels are NOT my thing. For years, I've been a flats girl. My heart (and feet) were thrilled a few years ago when ballet flats made a comeback. I recently bought my first pair of heels in quite some time. I wore them all day today. And all evening. And I will NOT be doing that again anytime soon! My left knee hurts, my feet are tired... how do women do it?? It was a very nice evening. Most of all, I gotta give major props to Satch for the hours of work she put in to making all of those treats. She made little banana pudding cups, chocolate mousse cups, the dipped pretzels, and a variety of cookies. She works at the school in the morning until after lunchtime. Then she goes home and bakes. So she spent many, many hours doing the work for this shindig- I only helped out for 2 of those hours. And her food is amazing. So, so, so good. If you are in the Indy area and need some amazing sweet treats for a get together... I highly recommend my friend, Satch!! You can reach her through her Facebook page- The Blue Spatula. Photobucket

How cool! She looks beautiful in her dress. I love those heels!

Teagan looks utterly adorable :-)

But all those heels give me the screaming heebie jeebies. I do own one pair of heels that I wear maybe once or twice a year and then only if I'm not expecting to walk anywhere or stand for long.

The photos are great - especially the heels. LOL. Funny how she saved that bald pretzel rod for you.

Liz, Teagan looked beautiful in the dress, she is such a pretty, pretty girl! What a fun time!

Teagan is so excited to be wearing that dress--she must know how beautiful she is.

So, did anyone give you an odd look for photographing everyone's feet? Gotta say, there are some nice-looking gams in Teagan's class, lol!

shoes have never been my thing, mostly because my feet are way too skinny to wear any of the shoes you've shown. I'd have to buy shoes in narrow width and who has time to go find those? So I've always been enthralled with the shoe choices others make

I'm not a big fan of heels either, both because they make my feet hurt and because they make it very difficult to chase down my kids.

Teagan looks so beautiful, and so do all those women's feet. I am enamored of heels, but like you, I never wear them-I prefer comfort over style any day. Now, though, I am thinking I might need to try it again!

This is very cool! The shoes seem a little much to me, but the kids look AWESOME!
