Every year the Elders Quorum holds a sister appreciation dinner for the sisters in our ward to let us know how much they appreciate us. This is my 4th dinner so I'm used to how this works. I even decided to dress a little differently this year since I have worn all of my formal dresses in the past years. I purchased a civil war era dress a few months ago and was so excited to wear it to this event. I didn't care if I stood out because lets face it the whole point of the evening was to feel good about yourself and I felt good in my hoops.
A group of us girls met up at Kellie's house to get ready for the evening. We had a good time doing our hair and makeup while watching/listening to Mean Girls. That's part of the tradition is to get together and help each other get ready. I love my girlfriends.
When we arrived at the church the elders greeted us with roses and escorted us to our seats. Love you Lindsey, Anne, Kellie, Jessica and Kaylee.
Dinner was served by the elders quorum and it was fabulous. They made a great salad and several soups for us to try. The butternut squash and tomato basil were my favorites. Desert was great too.
After dinner the elders actually held a dance. I have to admit its pretty fun rocking out to Journey in a civil war dress. Thanks for the dance guys.
All in all I have to say this was a great evening. I know I am a daughter of God and that he loves me so much and He has my best interest in His plans for me.
