And my make-up. I love my eyes.
I LOVED my hair, it was exactly what I wanted. I also loved my make-up, but I definitely need to find a solution for my lipstick that is more, kissing friendly.
Once we were finished getting dolled up, we met up with our guys. They were more than a little impressed. They took us out for dinner at a Mediterranean restaurant, and we had an awesome evening of good food, good wine, and good company.
