Best Prom Ever!

We had such a fun time at the Prom! The decorations were fun, food was sweet, my date was the best looking guy there, and best of all my skirt was perfect! My mom made the skirt for me the day before and the day of. It was beautiful and it twirled like a dream!
Going out to dinner with a large group of 28 - 30 somethings all dressed for the prom was quite the treat. A lot of odd stares!

I think every ward should do this at least every other year. Parents don't get the chance to really go all out and dress snazzy for a night of dinner and dancing too often. What a blast we had. There were quite a few fun and very original (aka - old) prom pictures displayed and yearbooks to peruse as well. Oh, there was also the opportunity to have our pictures taken "under the stars". I'll have to post them as soon as we get them back.

We were even the envy of everyone when we drove up in our 19 foot stretch.........

van.

Here is a fun video Zack put together for me. A little disclaimer: the camera adds about 25 pounds. Either that, or the pettycoats that were pinned to my bra does.
