Apple Blossom Allie

Happy Monday!!  Thanks to everyone for all their great "A" Costume suggestions!  After emailing back and forth a bit with Bella at Southern Somedays, I decided on "Apple Blossom."

I made the tutu with ribbon and fabric and the crown with flower garland and jewelry wire.  My date was my best guy friend BSB.  These initials do not stand for his name, rather our nicknames.  We became best friends in sixth grade when we shared the same bus stop.  We nicknamed each other "Bus Stop Buddies" or BSB for short!  He was Johnny Appleseed.

It was such a fun and bittersweet night.  It's a weird thought that I won't have any more themed date functions.  Next month is formal, and I'm sure that too will be bittersweet.  The next morning BSB and I grabbed brunch at Bluegrass Grill.  If you are ever anywhere near Charlottesville, you MUST eat there!  It has been voted the Top 5 best breakfasts in Virginia and year after year it wins both Best Breakfast and Best Brunch in "The Best of Cville".  I ordered the Denver Omelet with Home Fries and Toast.

Are you drooling yet?

I wrapped the weekend up by having Sunday brunch with AMF, one of my very best friends here at school.  Brunch has been our tradition since first year and I am wishing and hoping she ends up in Richmond next year.

After brunch we headed to "Catwalk for Crohn's," a fashion show put on by the Second Year Council (many of whom are Alpha Phis).  It featured Foxfield Preview fashions from the The Pink Palm (Lilly), The Young Men's Shop (Southern Proper), and Duo (variety of designers including Trina Turk, Shoshanna, and Alice & Trixie).

This cause is particularly near and dear to my heart, because my mom was diagnosed with Crohn's disease a little over two years ago.  It was so fun to see the girls and guys strut their stuff down the runway and get outfit ideas, while helping a wonderful cause.  

Lastly, I can't believe I'm already at 100+ followers.  Thank you so much to everyone!  I have really enjoyed this new endeavor and can't wait to get to know you all more through the blogging world.
