I've spotted so many prom groups out and about, seen posts about siblings going to prom, and then today Ellen went and talked about awkward prom pictures last week. I couldn't take it anymore, I had to reminisce some about my own prom.
I loved prom!
There I said it. Every single bit, okay I lie but really I loved most all of it!
At my school we only had a senior prom so unless you were a senior or you had the privilege of being asked to attend by a senior, you didn't get to go. Thankfully, I was that awkward girl that no one above my grade even knew so I didn't attend till senior year, which I think made it even more special.
I remember my mom took me to like a thousand different stores. We even bought THREE, yes three, dresses, only to return all of them later and go back to the very first dress I ever tried on. I couldn't get it out of my head. I wanted to, I felt like that typical girl getting the pink poofy prom dress, but I just couldn't. And I loved that dress! It made my top favorite clothing list a few years back.
I loved getting all dolled up, loved taking all the pictures, loved the limo (even though it was yellow, yes a story for another time), loved the after-prom, loved the sleepover at the end of the night and the morning run to Shipley's Donuts, prom hair and all. We'll ignore that for part of the night I was running from my date so that he couldn't ask me to be his girlfriend.
So, for the sake of fun memories, prom pictures, circa April 19, 2008.
Yes we took the classic stair picture
I get to see this lady and her NEW beau in Virginia SOON!
