Smorgasbord

Today's post is a big old mishmash of *stuff.* Good stuff, I hope!

First, I've been meaning to follow through on Xazmin's fun Prom Picture TAG for a good week now, and I just couldn't find my "prom" pictures. I had a whole album of them, and I have no clue where they disappeared to! Here's the photo I did find:























Can you guess the year?


This was my Junior Year Extravaganza. That sounds so lame, huh? I went to private school, and they didn't allow dancing, dances, or anything that might resemble a dance. We had to call our cheerleading dances "routines." Because dancing clearly leads to, well, you know...sex. And that leads to death. For high schoolers anyways. That's what I'm gonna tell my girls!!!!

I HATED my updo...they never get it right. It ended up looking like a beehive, instead of a brunette Grace Kelly-esque style. See my cheerleader bangs?? I did like the dress though. I could probably fit my left thigh in it now....

My date was J, and he was so sweet! The Juniors and Seniors travelled to the Bull and Bear Club in Richmond for dinner. It was lovely. Then they made us go play lazer tag. Maybe that was their pitiful attempt to make up for the fact that we didn't get to dance to classics like the Macarena, Barbie Girl, Tubthumping, or other various forgotten hits of that year. All the girls had to change out of their beautiful gowns, don jeans and sweatshirts, and ruin our $50 updos to run around and play army. Ick. That part was not fun.

But it sure was memorable! T was at the same "prom," but he was a Senior. I remember thinking about how handsome he looked in his tux! I had a picture of him and his date (%$#@) in that album. If I find it, I'll post it because I was totally way hotter than she was!

I think J was married last year. We lost touch after high school, and I didn't see him at our reunion. I have seen him on Facebook though.

So now it's my turn to tag some friends! Here are the rules, via Xazmin:

❶ Leave me a comment guessing which Year this photo was taken. I will post the correct year in a few days after a few guesses come in...how fun! Don't hurt my feelings and guess too old, haha!

❷ If I TAG you...DIG up your old Prom picture...post it and lets guess the date too...(if you really are that self-conscience and don't want us to know the date...maybe we can guess the decade?)~If you are married to your Prom date let us know!~If you are not...try to post a Prom picture of your Prom & a second picture of your husbands prom too...let us know where each of your Dates are now...and their relationship status!! (and of course YOU are way cuter than his Prom date!)~If you are Single...let us know where your Prom date is now!

❸ I am gonna TAG some people...and then those taggers need to keep it going by tagging 5 other people! I can't wait to see all of your pictures! This will be fun!

Okay, I TAG:
1.Alison at They Gave Me a Mullet.

2.Meri at Seriously?Ridiculous!

3.Erin at Musings of a Stone Dodger

4.MomInHighHeels

5.Mommy at Mission Motherhood


My birthday yesterday was great! Twenty-faux just keeps getting better, ya'll! Some girlfriends from Bible Study took me to lunch after study. We went to CiCi's Pizza because the kids eat free there, we could get a salad and pizza, and the kids could pretty much have the run of the place since it was deserted. Fun times!

I got home to find that the Cookie Cake Fairy had indeed visited. It was pure torture to wait to slice it until T got off work at 9 pm. I had to keep the box closed to be good! I sure got blessed in the gift department this year! Even though my present was supposed to be this laptop (from aforementioned Debacle), T surprised me with a gift card to Border's. I can't to go (by myself!) to peruse the aisles and find a new read! My brother, Jamie, and his wife, SuSu, gave me a gift card to JoAnn Fabric to buy some fun crafty stuff (see, it pays when people read your blog posts!) and some pretty pretty lip gloss! Mimi gave me a beautiful silver monogram jewelry set and an Initials Inc. purse. T's parents got me a DVD of Mrs. Pettigrew Lives for a Day, which I saw last year and adored. If you haven't seen it, view the link to the trailer and then hit the RedBox for a rental! They also gave me some cute earrings, a potted cluster of pink (!) gerber daisies, and...




Can't wait to flip through this one! I bet there's all sorts of garbage I've been giving my kids that is labelled as "healthy" and is really on the "Not That!" list. I'll let you know!
Last order of business...if you like gorgeous stuff to make your house a home, and if you like funny, witty posts by a super-nice chicky, go check out Amanda's blog at Imperfectly Beautiful. Amanda is hosting a {GIVEAWAY} in honor of the grand opening of her new Etsy shop. Go explore her blog and her store pronto--> you won't be disappointed! She is sweet and talented, and I'm so glad to have her as my bloggy friend. Cute stuff over there, my friends!
Happy Wednesday, Friends!

I LOVE it! I'm guessing 1996. You told me you were born in '80 in your "Rock On" comment.

If you were 16 as a junior...I should be close in my calculations!

You look adorable...updo and all! Thanks for playing!

Hmmm....maybe "Vinnit" didn't read the post about I ALREADY HAVE A LAPTOP. Before you posted your comment, you would have seen the message saying "DON'T SPAM ME!!!" I'm deleting one of your comments and leaving the other one up so people will see your "username" and know never to click on it and NEVER to buy anything from your site. Thanks!

omw, that was the worst "faux-prom" eva!!!!!! i don't have a pic of it, bc my retarded, i mean sweet, kind, and always responsible husband threw out my past during a move early in our marriage. and by my past, i mean all pictures, journals, paintings, love notes and anything else a girl would wish to keep to show to her grandchildren. to this day he swears he didn't do it....oh yeah, 1997....
