Seeing as tonight is my youngest daughter's senior prom, I thought she just might want to see how totally cool her parents' prom pictures were. The first one is my husband's prom, which I'm guessing was 1979, the year he graduated. I don't know the girl, but she looks cute and I think I remember him saying they were just friends, not girlfriend-boyfriend. Don't you just love his glasses?? Crack me up! You can tell they're the kind that turned into sunglasses when you went outside. I'm waiting for Starsky and Hutch to pull up. Something tells me he's wearing a gold chain around his neck and she's wearing a mood ring.
My prom was in 1983, and the funny thing is I still see my old boyfriend pretty frequently because our kids go to high school together. He's still cute and I got fat - ahhh, welcome to life. My mouth looks weird in that picture but oh well.
This next picture is the only one I have from being on prom court. This was my escort, Mark Amrhein, and we've been friends since first grade. Your escort had to be a boy that was on the court as well and we just paired off. I can't believe I don't have any other pictures than that. I don't even remember who else was on it except for my best friend, Sheila, and the winner, Caryn Baatz. We were very excited for her because her older two sisters had been prom queens as well.
Yep, I'd say my daughter has a lot to live up to if she wants to look THIS cool 25+ years from now. Good luck with that, Sara! HA HA
