FBLA Field Trip

I helped chaperone the FBLA field trip last weekend and here are the highlights:

I'm wearing the plastic red bows. Oh yeah! They would've worked if I had plans to dress like a naughty Dorthy. Which I don't.
  1. Trying on the prom dress from hell. Imagine leopard print bodice and a fuchsia skirt like a mullet, short in the front, party in the back.
  2. Trying on tons of TACKY shoes. And some cute ones.
  3. Dominating at late night Speed Scrabble. 
  4. Monty Python quote-off.
  5. Getting 2 new pairs of summer wedges.
  6. Swimming laps for exercise.
  7. Writing for 5 hours straight. Unadulterated time away from kids and husband and dog and work. Pure bliss.
  8. Catching up on cable. (I've been cable-free since August. So I watched Leverage, Psych, and What Not to Wear. Also, cable hasn't changed much in the past few months. They're still showing Die Hard marathons, and yes, I watched one too. "Now I know what a TV dinner feels like." - J. McClane)
  9. The girl with the tacky rhinestone bracelets. She wore maybe 15 on each arm. We debated giving her an intervention. 
  10. Having a king-sized bed to myself. 
  11. Outback steak.
  12. Free brownies made with love. 
  13. Words with Friends.
  14.  Singing "Party in the USA" at the tops of our lungs. (parody-like)
  15. Josie's "birthday". 
We were going for "furiously happy".
And Josie didn't even get a year older. =)PS, the students planned this surprise. Teenagers never change, except for their haircuts.


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend, especially any trip that allows for shoe and purse shopping!

  2. What does FBLA stand for? Whatever it is, I'd love to go for one of these things someday :)

    1. I think my arms giggle just from the brownies alone.

  4. Loved the shoes :) Sounds like your field trip was a total success! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier today--I'll certainly be back to visit yours again :)

  5. That seemed like great fun. I always love pictures to complement the posts!
