In which the YA author showcases her teenage years in all their awkward glory. This one is for you, Jennie Miller: Senior Prom 1993.
I got this one right. The last time I double-dated with Jennie at Prom, it did not turn out so well. (There was me in a strapless dress attempting to run up a down-escalator. Need I say more?)
So this was my fourth Prom. I took Brian Taylor–same guy I took the year of the escalator. Perhaps he hoped for a sequel to the first show? Anyhoo, Jennie took Cory Miller, who she eventually married. I had grown tired of the fancy doofy prom dress thing and I wanted to mix things up a bit. Can’t believe I didn’t find a way to incorporate Mickey Mouse into this outfit. But I think this goes to show that no matter what you wear to Prom, you will always look doofy. Anyway, Senior Prom ruled. We ordered Chinese food and ate out on a secluded lake that had a beautiful deck over it. We walked around the circle downtown Indianapolis and had a horse and buggy ride. We danced. We stayed up all night. It was fun!

love it. 🙂
Dearest friend, those were good times we had. This is my favorite picture from that night. Chinese food and sparkling grape juice 🙂 The night that changed my future, thanks for sharing it with me. Love you 🙂
OMG, this is hilarious! I’m so impressed you were willing to share these photos! I love it.
Sadly, I’m not sure I look any different than I did in high school–I hope I dress a little bettery, but the hair is the same. I had no ambition then, and I still have none when it comes to hair.
Thanks for being brave!
