Flashback Friday

April’s assignment: Because April is when a lot of high schools hold their proms, I have dubbed April’s theme as “Black Tie Affair”. I would love to see photos of you and/or your family dressed up. It doesn’t necessarily have to be “Black Tie,” but rather it can be any occasion that calls for you to be dressed up a little more than usual: prom, formals, theater shows, balls, parties…you get the general idea. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with (I really am hoping and praying that some of you post photos of your high school formals – lol).

I thought I would start this month off with a funny photo from this past summer. Josh and I were invited to our friends’ five year wedding anniversary party. The theme was “Prom”. Most everyone showed up in nice cocktail attire and then there was Josh and me…prom 012 prom 011 Being the goofballs that we are, Josh and I decided to go in retro prom attire. We just couldn’t resist. Our friend Ed went along with the whole thing too and despite our knowing very few people in attendance, we somehow became the talk of the party (I can’t imagine why : )prom cropped

You are SO freakin' fun I just can't stand it.

Brandon Family said...

wow! You look great with long blonde hair! ;) This reminds me of when I dressed up for the Theta Tea party! how fun!

Amber said...

I'd seen that pic, I guess from Ed. How funny! I didn't actually realize that everyone else wasn't dressed in retro. You guys look great.

I'm sorry I've been so delinquent of Flashback Fridays lately. I guess Kate officially being into everything, along with me only using my laptop instead of the desktop where we store our pics, has taken a toll on my blogging. I'm hoping to do better, eventually.

I've had fun reading up on your family, though. We really do need to get together!

Carebear said...

LOL, you look good as a .... blonde? Or is that neon yellow? Seriously though, hilarious pics. I'm off to dig out some old "black tie" I can scan and post. I'm excited to participate - I didn't have any sports and rec last month, but I'm bound to have something to contribute this month! BTW, congrats on your award from Lolli. You deserve it. You're a great blogger, and bloggy friend!

Heidi said...

I don't know why I didn't leave a comment yesterday, brain fart i guess. I LOVE your outfit! You totally look like a blonde Cher and a tall Sonny (but you know, when Cher was totally hot!)we would totally be best friends in real life! lol
