What could be more girly than dressing up
and planning lunch with girlfriends?
If you’re lucky, these girlfriends are the Milner sisters. Be prepared to die laughing. With a degree in theatre at SJSU, Alys had us all decked out in wigs and lashes. Oh yes, it is a necessary part of the day!
The hilarity began at Alys’s. See, the trick to getting your hair up and out-of-the-way is to have a pantyhose on your head, THEN you put the wig on. Let me tell you, I barely made it thru this process without peeing my pants 😀 You might also enjoy the benefit of a temporary face lift when you pull it back because it’s so darn tight.
Once all glammed up, off we went to ‘Lisa’s Tea Treasures‘. Alys as a scrumptious strawberry blonde.
Sharon as a raven haired beauty and Boomdee went for the Mad Men short flip.
It’s fun to be treated so regally. I decided to order ‘The Royal Wedding’ tea, a delicious champagne and raspberry flavour, served in my very own tea-pot. It’s really enough for two. Alyster, do you take milk?
You’ll enjoy your tea with a plate of pretty sandwiches made to order. We’re all vegetarians and they were so lovely to accommodate us with ease. Every delightful morsel, from tea to lunch to cakes is served on pretty china.
Soooooo, do you remember when Janet Jackson had a wardrobe malfunction at the Superbowl Game? Well nothing that tragic, just that my wig was crooked by the end of it all and my pantyhose head scarf was showing. Tres faux pas.
A faux pas: is a socially awkward or tactless act, especially one that
violates accepted social norms, standards or rules of etiquette
When Alys kindly tried to pull the wig forward, it came RIGHT OFF! We laughed so hard I was crying (but my new eyelashes did stay on).
OH Sweet Alys,
You are my cup of tea!
