Sunday AM coffee

My adventures in Prom shopping yesterday had to be one for the books.

Arrived at the mall at 1030a and all the girls who were buying dresses had theirs picked out, tried on and purchased within 50 minutes. How's that for unbelievable!?!?!

Chyann tried on about five dresses and chose a gorgeous long one. I guess there are rules for Prom dresses - Freshmen have to wear short dresses, Sophomores wear long ones, Juniors wear long full dresses and Seniors can wear whatever they want. Who knew right? Not me since I never went to any kind of Prom.

The color is very similar to the midnight blue one she wore for the HNS induction, but that's the only similarity. The dress is .... just WOW! and looks absolutely AMAZING on her. Going to have to play around with up-do's for her hair so the back of the dress can be seen because it's really something else.
Now I'm excited for Prom. It's on the 26th of this month.

Yes of course we went to Panera bread for lunch. I had their Figi apple chicken salad this time and it was delicious! The white balsamic apple vinaigrette was to die for. I'm going to have to find a recipe for it because it knocked my socks off. YUM!

Our last stop was Kohl's, where I found the perfect purse! Couldn't find a wallet to match so that quest continues, but hey I've got the purse finally!

The group of girls who went were a great mix of personalities. I really enjoyed all of them and hearing them tell stories about school or their families was some of the funniest stuff I've heard in a while. The atmosphere was perfect for singing along to the radio at full volume on the way home too. Really we did and I loved it.

It's Sunday and the snow continues to melt thankfully.
All my kids are home this weekend. Feels good to have them all under one roof. Family dinners at the table and listening to their banter makes me smile. I know we did something good with all three of them. Sure makes me proud.

That has to be something for the guiness book of records... 50 minutes for all of them??? Wow.

Our prom never had all those rules. We just picked out a long dress.
Except for Holly, one of my friends. She wore a tux that matched her boyfriend.

I don't have to tell you to treasure all the things going on, I can tell by the way you talk about them that you ARE treasuring life.

Have a great week!!

How on earth did you ever manage that one...WOW and congrats~ it sounds like you had a great day with a fantastic mix of nice for all of you. Crank that music!
it is nice getting all your children under the same roof around the table. It gets harder every year but it beats all.

Crazy that all 4 grades get to go to Prom. Here you can only go as a Freshman or sophomore if you're invited a junior or senior. Anyway that's how it used to be.... I dunno now that there's the new school. I can't wait to see the dress!
