Prom Season is in full swing. This evening I have a couple of corsages to make and deliver for a high school prom that is tomorrow night. It's got me thinking about my own prom way back when. I was a sophomore in high school and I was dating a senior football player - anyway he asked me to prom and of course I was jumping up and down when I was telling my mom. I borrowed a dress from my cousin and got the jewelry and shoes, had my hair done in the fantastic up do. He picked me up in a freshly washed red mustang and we here rockin' it. Let's just say that by the end of the night I was missing an earring and I've held on to its mate ever since. So if your daughter comes home after prom with one less earring....


  1. Hey I remember that dress and prom. But I don't remember the lost ear ring story. That was the year prom was in the gym. I thought I was really cool back then...little did I know.

  2. Oh my gosh, my first prom was in a red mustang. I've still got the jewelry for all 4 of the proms I went to (No I wasn't a bad girl, there's just not much selection in a high school of 60 people)

  3. Dirty!!! Haha... I love that you've held on to that lone earring.
