Prom 2011

My daughter went to her first Prom....



I never remember Prom being expensive when I was in high-school, but then again that was the "olden days," the late 80's!

When she was first asked to Prom I was kind of feeling bad for all of the guys and how much money they had to spend to take a girl to Prom. I heard stories of guys renting limousines, trolleys, and sports cars, to impress their dates. Add in the tux rental, prom tickets and fancy dinner, a guy has to come up with a lot of money.

When she first started looking for her dress I had a good idea of what they cost and was expecting a sizable chunk of money would be removed from the money tree that grows in our backyard. As the time grew closer to the date of the Prom, more requests and more money left our money tree like leaves blowing in the wind.  With each new "I-need-because-ALL-of-my-friends-are-doing-it-too request, my brain would shuffle through its memory bank trying to remember...did I do that when I went to Prom? 


The all-to-familiar memory came back to me...


No, my mom didn't let me do that! 


Huh!


  

The decisions, money-hand-outs, and trips to the mall we had to make were overwhelming, as there were so many, but we had a lot of fun together.

There was the Prom dress, the alteration of the dress, the sticky tape to keep the dress glued to the skin in the parts we don't want others to see, the 4" high-heel shoes, the special bra that strapped around this way and under that way to fit to the dress, the special underwear that suctions to the body to prevent lines, the sequened clutch bag, the bracelets, the ring, the earrings, the pedicure, the french manicure gel-nails, the week before brow waxing, the hairdo-updo, the make-up application, and last but not least, the had-to-have false eyelashes.

After all of this was said and done or should I say paid-for
I don't feel so bad for the guys anymore, I feel worse for the girls!


This is how it went...



Getting ready; when she came out door and into the living room, our mouthes dropped in awe at the beauty of our little girl who has now grown up in the blink of an eye.


She was embarrassed, but let her grandma's and grandpa's "ooh and awe" and take pictures before she ran out the door.



The flower exchange was sweet.


JJ and Hailey

To give you a little background info...JJ liked Hailey but was too shy to even say "Hi" to her, at the prompting of his friends, he asked her to prom. They went as friends.


Friends...


More friends...



Best friends...



Couples...


Hailey and KK...gorgeous girls.




Having fun...



Girl friends having fun and blowing kisses to all the mothers taking a gazillion pictures.








A night to remember.
