Vampire Prom 2008
So I think everyone and their brother is reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. OK maybe not my brother, but he has heard of them!
I hadn't met anyone who had read Twilight when I got it for Calah for her birthday couple of years ago. I admit I was immediately sucked in, it might have had something to do with the fact that it is a high school romance and my high school boyfriend had a fairly intense interest in Vampires.
So fast forward (no, not from high school but from Calah's birthday) to the continuing saga and the release party on August 1 for the final book "Breaking Dawn".
I was taking Mackenzie and her BFF Katie and was asked quite passionately,
"You're not going to hang around with us are you?!"
Hel-lo! It's me-- in a book store-- without Doug or Kian! What do you mean me hang around with YOU??
But secretly I think Calah wanted to go as well so she said she'd go so I'd have someone to hang out with...dang...Oh well. I love hanging out with Calah so it'll be fine. Plus Calah thought since it was a "Prom" she wanted to dress up. So she wore her Homecoming dress (Yes! the one I made in 13 hours!!) her black/red lipstick and her combat boots. She looked lovely :-)
While we were sitting not quite in the Starbucks Cafe-which BTW does NOT take Starbucks gift cards--one of the B&N workers comes to ask Calah if she could put Calah in the Prom Court! Calah said in her way "Um, sure..." and the woman said "You look great!"
So the three couples line up while everyone galks (is that a word? If so I have no idea how to spell it) and votes. Well, Rock the Vote!!! Calah won!!
This is Calah and the Prom King...yeah.
She thinks this one looks "creepy". I think it shows her enthusiasm for Edward and all things "vampire".
She got a crown, a sash, some black flowers with one red rose, a journal, a collection of stories called "Prom Dates from Hell", Red Hot candies, a Breaking Dawn T shirt and most importantly...Dark Chocolate Raspberry Godiva Chocolate!!! Go my vampire girl!
