A Magical Night

Tonight my husband and I are attending a 'prom' throwback party. Unfortunately, my old prom dresses are long gone (and surely would no longer fit this post-babies bod anyway.)

I went searching back through my old picture box for inspiration--and alas my scanner was giving me fits, so I grabbed this one from facebook from my Junior year. (I am third from the left.) Aren't our dates' bow ties a classy touch? Ahh, 1991....
This precious photo is from Senior Prom 1992. My date was my good friend, Shawn. Interestingly, his stepdad and my Mom attended their Senior Prom together too.
I cannot wait to see how it goes tonight. We are going all out...corsages, poofy dresses and lots of hairspray. Speaking of hair, I have got to get on it. Recreating these looks is going to require more attention than my hair has received in years!

Have fun tonight!

Your dress was a pretty color. My jr. prom dress is the same as the girl in pink. I still have my dates pink bow tie somewhere. Poor guy had to pay extra when he didn't return it. :) My dress is hanging in my basement with some old bridesmaid dresses...what a riot it would be to see if it still fit!

I bet your old dresses would totally fit!!! You look the same size...I remember in one of your me-me's you said you actually weighed 10 lbs less now :) Please post pictures!!! I bet K loved seeing you dressed up.

KJ&A- It is not so much the weight as the shifting... :-)

That's by far the curliest my hair has or ever will be! I totally forgot Amy was in charge of prom committee. Hope you had a blast!
