A few weeks ago one of our best friends here in Vermont celebrated her birthday with a black tie party. We normally don't make it out to the parties since we are not drinkers, and we prefer smaller, more intimate settings. But we knew we couldn't miss Yvonne's birthday. So we got dressed up in some fancy type clothes (or at least as fancy as we could find in our closet) and went to party it up with half of my campus. It's crazy to think, but we have been here for 8 months and we hardly have any pictures with our friends. But I promise, we do have friends at SIT. Here are a few pictures from the evening:
Karin (on the left) was the parties hostess, and she did an amazing job at getting out invitations and preparing all sorts of amazing foods for the party.
Nissa helped serve cupcakes, and it seems like Rebekkah really enjoyed the service. :)
The birthday girl.
We tried to get pictures with a handful of people before we left (since we have no pictures with anyone) but we weren't all that successful. But there was one guest who took pictures of everyone in a sort of photo booth style. Here is our beautiful picture from the party.
We were really glad we went to the party - and maybe we'll attend another before the end of the semester. Although, with all the homework keeping me busy, I'm not sure we'll be able to find the time!
