Prom pics on a rainy day

I don't know how you guys like to spend your prematurely rainy/snowy/slushy/craptastic days, but around these parts, we play dress-up in old prom dresses and then catwalk up and down the hallway. That's just how we roll.

This one is from 10th grade. It's always been my favorite

This one is from 11th grade. Hannah likes that it looks like Belle's from Beauty and the Beast.  Unfortunately, all of the pics in this dress are blurry...but I had to include at least one anyway.

I got rid of my 12th grade dress pretty quickly because it was super, duper small.  My friends and I had a pension for spending hours and hours each night drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes at West Winds, a diner in the west end of Hagerstown.  We migrated there when our shifts at Bob Evans ended each night...that's right. Bob Evans. Totally gross.  Anyway, I don't think I was eating much back then because I was an absurdly small size 3 when prom rolled around.  I knew I'd never fit into that dress again so I sold it in a yard sale a year later. Not that I intended to ever again wear the ones I could fit into...

Anyway, I don't know why I held on to the others at first, but a few years ago Amy told me she was saving all her party dresses so her future kids could play dress up in them because she used to love dressing up in her aunt's old dresses. That's the best reason I ever heard of to keep old, dated, ridiculous dresses, so now that's why I'm holding on to them.  And today, to celebrate the premature winter weather, we had a premature prom dress, dress-up party. Take that crappy weather!


  1. I love this! Totally takes me back to the New Years that all you gals got dressed up in your prom dresses! I still have the pics and the one of Amy and Autumn in those dresses with the fans is the BEST. Glad to see Hannah enjoying them just as much as they did :)

  2. The kid is so cute and you are beautiful. I am pretty sure that this kid is looking forward to a prom night in the future. By the way, I love that blue dress. It's very compelling.

  3. Islamabad has for quite some time been a goal for people and families alike. From the sparkle of Islamabad to the radiant shorelines of Islamabad to the relentless celebrations of Disneyland, Islamabad has everything. Rawalpindi rent a car For a guest to take in even a segment of all Los Angeles brings to the table, getting a rental auto is the approach.

  4. No matter which part of Pakistan you intend to travel to, AR Raheem Motors Rent a Car Islamabad provides you with a car of your choice to drive through the roads and highways of cities like Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, and many others without having to force your way through the crowds at bus stations or railway stations. Spend time at a place for as long as you desire as you have your own vehicle to just get inside and zoom on the road to reach your next destination.


  5. This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I actually ending up not needing it for what I initially

    purchased it for, but I kept it because it was so nice and very reasonable.
