Monday Monday Monday!
I hope you guys are all comfortable because there are a lot of pictures in this post. (Go grab a drink, and maybe a snack! Ill wait!)
Okay, all set? Lets go! 🙂
Me in my dress.
I love the way I got my hair done!
The theme of our prom this year was Happily Ever After.
Fun fancy drinks they served.
Okay now onto the food. Hmph.
A week prior I called the restaurant where my prom was being held (the same place it was held last year, where is wasn’t a problem) and talked to the head chef about me being vegan, and if he could prepare a special meal for me like he did the previous year. I called three days before, and the day of just to be sure that I would be taken care of.
Guess what? They forgot.
Alright so after being brought a limp salad smothered with cheese, the another limp salad with nothing (that’s right just lettuce, no veggies, nothing!), then finally a teeny tiny bowl of oily veggies. Yea, um lets just say I was a little upset. It is not hard to prepare vegan food at all. I would have taken anything, really. But I end up with oily veggies. Lame!
Some people asked me, “why not just just give it for one night, it doesn’t matter” or “your just being difficult eat your deep fried blah blah here.” For me, being vegan is more than just a “diet”, its a way I have chosen to live. I hate that people assume that I’m some starved, deprived person living on nothing but lettuce and air. Veganism for me isn’t some trend, or some passing phase. Its here to stay. I just wish people would be more understanding of that. However that being said many of my family members, and closer older friends understand. It is the high school ones that seem to have a problem with it.
Okay, rant over. More prom fun! 🙂
Being silly on the dance floor.
Being gangsta’ on the way.
This is my absolute favorite picture!
Stay tuned, part 2 to come!
