Please Don't Stop the Music

Okie dokie all you Jerica Mellens fans, I'm [Erika's] sorry I've dropped the ball lately with my posts, but I've just been soooooo busy!!!

First of all.
For you iTunes users who haven't downloaded the new version... do it! Do it now. They have this thing called Genius, and it's... well... Genius! I love it.

Second of all.
I have been busy... but surviving. I'm pleasantly surprised that I'm able to have a social life with 17 credit hours and all of them being art classes. But they haven't totally consumed me... yet...

Third and most important of all!
This weekend was Homecoming!!!! For those of you who don't know, Kate and I are always the best dressed people at homecoming. Last year we got the most ridiculous outfits we could find from Goodwill:

How on earth were we going to top or even match the magnificence of last year??
Quite the conundrum.

But have no fear, Underdog is here! ... Ok. Not Underdog, but better: Kate. She came up with the idea of dressing from an era. You know, like the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's... etc. And do our hair, makeup, everything like the people from that time period. Yes! Great idea.

So we head out to Goodwill with our spirits high.
Well, that didn't last long. We didn't have too much luck. We found a great 70's dress. But only one. We found a couple alright 50's dresses, but they didn't fit right and/or were hot and itchy. Boo.

We went home. Discouraged.

But! Have no fear! Underdog is here! [no, I do not know why I am so inspired by Underdog tonight...] We went out again the next day and found great tops from the 60's. Two of them. Yessss! And we remembered that our good friend and [engaged] roommate Buter-face has a couple long skirts. Double yesssss!

So here is the finished product:

We. Are. So. Cool.

So... I'm not sure it topped last year, but I'd say we were still the best dressed people at SAU's homecoming this year.

All in all, the dance was kind of a disappointment. It may have something to do with the fact that not many of our friends came. Jessica, Alyssum, and Erin all weren't there. Andrew was though. And so was Lizzi. So we had fun with them.

But! The title of this blog is not only a Rihanna song, but kind of the theme of the night. The DJ was........... not the best. There were long gaps between songs. And then he would start a song that everyone would get excited about....... and then change it. For real, dude? And as if that wasn't enough to ruin a dance, the songs he did play were for the most part lame, and he played those songs more. Than. Once. Boooo!

Here are some of the most notable pictures:

Again. We. Are. So. Cool

I was alllll about the peace sign that night.

They are getting married!


"Get Silly"

Annnd.... that's about it for me.
Peace out.

Not as good as last year, but still tops at the dance.

Too bad your last HC sucked. But it woulda been the worst for me if you and Kate weren't there.

hahaha. should have had cedar bend, that's what I always say.

those were some cool outfits, for sure. maybe that would have persuaded me to allow you to join my planned all-night apples to apples game at homecoming-- but alas, as I've said previously, I was busy having more fun than everyone else there combined.

I LOVED the outfits.
And was (and still am) bummed about missing the festivities.
However, I'm glad you had some fun for me. I appreciate it.
