Oh, Those High School Dances Blog Hop
1. Post pictures of your high school dances.
2. Share with us your funniest high school dance story.
3. Have a good laugh at the pictures(Okay–I added that rule)
This picture is from prom my sophomore year when I was fifteen. Every once in a while my mom will mention that she thought the dress was a little short, but she let me wear it. And now today when I look at the prom dresses, I think they are too short too. Of course today the dresses fall to girls’ thighs. At least mine went to my knees.
I don’t have a funny story, so instead, I’ll just tell you a little about the guy in the picture.
I went to prom with Bill, the first guy I dated. I actually attended two proms that year, which was way cool, although I was nervous about going to his. This picture was taken at my house–gotta love the 80s wallpaper and blue carpet.
But it wasn’t meant to be, as most high school relationships are not, and he started dating my best friend. They ended up getting married a few years after high school. Then they had a beautiful little girl and she was pregnant with their son when Bill was killed in a snowmobile accident at age 29.
That was about ten years ago, but sometimes it doesn’t seem that long. He will forever be missed.
So since I posted that sad story and this wasn’t supposed to be a sad thing, I will leave you with this.
This is my Miranda and as you can see she’s wearing my prom dress. I just had to post it because she is so adorably cute—which all moms are required to say of course. But she had so much fun dressing up like the little diva. I have about 20+ pictures of her having fun and doing poses. Sometimes she acts like the princess. But other times she’s racing with the boys.
