Golden Globes

My uncles have a tradition of dressing up for awards shows like the Golden Globes and the Emmy's. It all started with one of their first dates to watch the Emmy's. Michael decorated the apartment with stars hanging from the ceiling and rolled out an actual red carpet. He had menus printed up of their dinner, which was Chinese food in homage to Mann's Chinese theater. They also had their own ballots to fill out who they thought would win. From this first date they continue to do this and when the Golden Globes aired this past Sunday we were all dressed in our best.
I found this dress at Zara on my last shopping trip in San Francisco before I left to move to Houston. I didn't know where I would wear it to, but I couldn't resist the color! (I usually don't find any light color dresses that go well with my skin tone)

Our table setting







Matt made amazing crepes for dinner and dessert. The dessert was so good I ate it before I remembered to take a picture!
