Yay! It’s Show & Tell Tuesday!
Twice a month, Andrea hosts a link up where we show and tell you something. Today’s topic: Prom Night.
In my 10 years of blogging, this is perhaps the only topic I have not covered. So, today’s post has a bunch of fresh pics from way back when.
I graduated from Irving High School where they only have a senior prom. That being said, I was asked by a senior my junior year and went to his prom and then went again the following year when I was a senior. Here’s the deal though…I had waaaaaaaaaaay more fun my junior year than my senior year (even though it wasn’t really my prom). Somehow, all of my friends went with seniors that year (both guys and girls), so even though it wasn’t our prom, we were all there together and it was just FUN. My senior year didn’t have a chance living up to the year before. Same people…just not as much fun. So, when I think back to prom, I always first recall my junior year and then my senior year.
This is my junior year going to prom with this nice guy right here. I still think my hair was on point ;).
My sweet, sweet, sweet grandfather who I was extremely close to, made sure to be there for the big night…which is amazing because he was incredibly sick at the time and died just a few months later. This picture makes me happy and sad all at the same time. He looks much, much older than he was due to all of the chemo and such. It’s sad because he looks so sick , but it’s happy because he was there and I’ll always remember that.
I love a good awkward prom pic 😉 .
We were all three juniors having the best time at the senior’s prom.
My senior year, I was dating someone older who was no longer in high school and I wasn’t about to torture him with prom, so I went with a friend…and the whole night was just okay. Apparently, blue is my color of choice for prom dresses ;).
My beautiful grandmother back for round two. My grandfather passed away the week before my senior year, but my grandmother did not miss a beat. She was at everything we had that year. Sean attended my senior prom even though he was a sophomore 😉 .
Senior prom with my friends!
And for fun, a few pics from Andrew’s proms…
I was laughing so hard at this one! Sweet Andrew had the body of a man but his head hadn’t quite grown into it. Thankfully, he was more proportionate his senior year…
…that’s a nice prom picture! Thank you to my mother-in-law for digging it out and sending it to me 😉 .
Okay, now, I have a very important question for you about your prom…
At our school, we ate dinner at prom. For some reason, none of my other friends and Andrew did when they went to prom. We had a like a big 4 course meal at prom and then proceeded to dance and such…but I swear, everyone I know now says they ate somewhere before going to prom. What did you do? To me, it just makes sense eating at prom or else it’s basically just a dance, right? So did you or did you not eat at prom??? Andrew thinks it’s so weird that we did and I think it’s so weird that he didn’t!
