lauren is going to prom today.
and there is a good chance i won't even see her all dolled up....she's going with a group...i don't have all the details.
just in case i don't.... i have a couple pictures of her dress and shoes.
it may be the best i get.
i hope not...but i am keeping my expectations low so i don't cry all night about my baby being big & all that stuff.
she's going to look beautiful.
did you go to prom?
i went all four years of high school.
and they were all FUN.
nothing crazy...nothing scandalous....just fun.
my freshman year i went with a foreign exchange student.....fernando.
a whole group of us together...two other foreign exchange students too.
(and kristi kita and lori claassen) :)
we ate at a restaurant before & they almost didn't let us into prom because we arrived 15 minutes past the time.
but they did.
i don't have a picture of the group and that is bummer.
but here is me and my friend tonya....from a different banquet that year....in the same dress.
"i like your sleeves....they're real big"
my sophomore year i went with craiggers.
i thought i looked AWESOME.
my dad said "do you have a turle neck to wear with that?"
apparently i was bow crazy.
love the gloves! shiny satin always looks good....don't ever doubt that.
i think i cried while getting ready because my curls were getting out of control.
thank goodness i made them fabulous by prom time.
is that the cutest couple you've ever seen?
the answer is yes.
i had this picture framed in my teenage bedroom for three more years.
that was the last time i wore electric blue heels....hmm i wonder why?....they are so versatile & go with everything!?
but also i haven't worn elbow length gloves with bows since that night either.
maybe i should bring it back.
the world needs more gloved occasions.
my junior year i went with friends because my boyfriend (craig) was gone at college far away.
and since i had been twice already the usual dress was too boring.
and i cut off all my hair.
my shoes were from the theater department.
my dress was my friend roxi's moms....if i remember correctly.
my date was dan....my first friend i had in that town....my 6th grade boyfriend....my friend still to this day.
jamie...where was your dress from? we were groovy.
brian....nice bow tie.
i don't remember anything else about that night at all....and i don't think i did anything bad that i am trying to block out....but i cannot be sure about that.
the decorations were crazy.
black plastic? in front of wood gazebo? wrapped in tulle?
i wish i could remember the theme!!
did you watch parenthood two weeks ago?
was your prom good or bad?
let's hear it.....
