Are you ready?

I said, ARE. YOU. READY?

I showed you the pink dress. And I showed you before The Festival of Colors. And after. And now the photographic evidence is in, and it's official. My daughter is the most BEE-U-TIFUL prom date in the history of the world.

And guess what! Guess what! Guess what!

She wore the heels.

Or as my niece who did her hair called them, the "training heels."

I have never seen my daughter wear heels before. (I have never seen my daughter wear pink toenails before either.)

Everything was soooooooo perfect, from her hair . . . (thanks Bobbi!)

to her corsage . . . (thanks prom date's mom!)

to her face . . . (Thanks me!)

Not to brag, but I made that face.

That face even looks perfect without the flash.

Okay, you wanna see the whole thing?

Now you wanna see the dashing date?


I have never seen a boy with his arm around my daughter before.

My work here is done!

Oh, wait, I forgot to show you my favorite pic.

Does my daughter look like the cat that swallowed the canary, or what?

Hee hee hee

Momza said...

Thanks for sharing! :) I bet the proud momma was beaming from ear to ear! Loved the journey!

She does look gorgeous. Classy and beautiful. Very sophisticated look and kudos for modesty.

I want to go and get tie dyed. How fun is that?

The really great news of the whole thing is she has a reason to dress up one more time after her dress finally arrives from CHina.

Those were so fun to see. I LOVED PROM and dress up times with my one and only daughter. (amid her 4 brothers) I remember picking out prom dresses with her.
Your daughter looked PERFECT. The hair was lovely. the shoes, the toenails, the corsage (thanks to dates mom...teehee)
I bet you loved every minute of it....YOU DID A GOOD JOB on her face.

I have already had to promise my best friend (with 3 boys) that she can come prom dress shopping and wedding dress shopping with me because she will never get her "own" experience. Your DNA looks great in pink!

man... miss a day or two of your blog and the world CHANGES on me!!! from chalk covered to pink and primped in one day??? (she looks beautiful - y'done good with that face...)

my eldest is still not dating age... and the first person to remind me that he will be exactly that old in about 38 days might get a throat punch... because that makes me a little sad...

She looks so BEAUTIFUL!! Makes me wish I was young again, but just for a milisecond! Dressing up, in a beautiful dress, being THIN! and matching toes. Oh, it's just to much!!

Oh my goodness!!!She looks so beautiful. I mean she always does but gracious...what a little beauty!

Amanda said...

she is gorgeous...I'm even feeling a little proud. Don't grow up, T! Wait, it is already too late, huh. You're taking this all so well, Crash.

Thanks for the blow-by-blow, I've enjoyed the set-up.
