How about I tell you how that went?
Here I am all gussied up to go and have a great time.
Accessories and everything! I did freak out right before we left because 1) Aaron was late and I was sure that we were going to be the last people to walk in to this thing, and I had no idea how to wrap my head around being that couple while I was wearing those shoes and 2) The hair.
I did not figure out the hair, but it served it’s purpose of sitting my head and not having any cowlicks, so I’m fine with it and we were not that couple so I could quiet my head about the shoes. Although, I did not. I very much did not shut up about those shoes. The shoes that I bought and wore with way too many toes to fit into them.
At one point in the evening everyone went to the lawn so that Rick could speak to us about his plans for Michigan’s future, he could campaign while we listened near the water, it was lovely, but I noticed that every woman who was standing either took off their heels or played footsie with the sidewalk as they tried to relieve the pressure from that evil-form of a shoe.
I tried to last longer in them, thinking I could stand in one spot all night and wince inwardly as someone came to shake my hand or introduce themselves. I was really awkward for a while, lesson learned.
Because where I decided to park myself was a good 15 feet away from where everyone was congregating and meeting each other.
By the bar.
Oh the fun! It was a very fun evening, we met some really nice people and stayed til they were cleaning things up then went back into Holland for dinner with friends. All in all a good first cocktail event for me to try out some shoes and a dress.
And Rick is pretty cool, too.
