time for Prom!!! How does this effect me, you ask? Well, my husband is a high school teacher in Detroit so we get to go "chaperone" every year! That means going to an AH-MAZING place in Detroit--yes, these DO exsist--eating delicious food, and sometimes dancing. This part is a little harder since we're at a Detroit High School dance and they like to listed to mainly rap music. Although, I cannot believe I'm going to admit this, I really like rap music. My husband "has" to listed to rap music everyday and it has grown on him; it has since transferred over to our car music and has grown on me. SOME of it, not all of it. Regardless, as much as I'm sure his students would LOVE to see us dance to some rap music at their prom...it ain't gonna happen! lol.
I got off course though because I wanted to show you some gorgeous places in Detroit that I have been--places I can assure you I would have never been to had we not been "chaperones" (I always put that in quotations because its used very loosely).
-The first year we went to Prom we went to Sinbads at the River. What a view! I don't actually remember much except the view. Oh well...
-The second year was at the Hotel St. Regis. One word to describe this place would be...ritzy? lol. Actually, I don't think I can do it in just one word. The decor was modern and trendy, but the architecture was breathtaking; it was an interesting combination that they got to work.
-The third year (last year) was at The Detroit Yacht Club. This place in to die for. I actually wish it was there again this year. DYC is actually on Belle Isle which is an island in the Detroit River. The view was incredible we could stand on the balcony and watch the sunset--which was beautiful that day. The food was impeccable and it was fun exploring the building and grounds. They actually have a members only room which I was dying to go in, but it was all men in jackets. lol. I think I would have been detected. I'm sure the price of the banquet rooms is ridiculously expensive but I would have LOVED to have got married there had I known about it!
--Finally, this year we are going to the Antheneum Suite Hotel as far as I can remember. I can't tell you about it because I haven't been their yet, but I'll be reporting about it tomorrow I'm sure.
SO right now, I having a mini-meltdown deciding what to wear tonight. Why must we always have this challenge? I wish I could just through on a suit and call it a day like men do. Life would be easier and as a stay-at-home-mom, I need easy today because I can already tell its going to be a loooooooong day.
