"Careless Whisper"...




...a reliving of a 1986 PROM.


First of all, I have to say that I have the coolest friends...ever! A friend of ours was turning 40 this last weekend and so his wife threw him a birthday BASH to say the least. Yes, we relived his prom. Of course, 80's dress was strictly enforced. So Ty and I went shopping...Salvation Army served us quite well. But I will let you be the judge.





Can you believe I got my hair like that? I'd like to give myself credit, especially since I am certain my mom was still doing these do's for me through the 80's. Ty's style only took about 10 minutes of blowing dry!



We watched "Footloose" the night before so that we would be ready for the dance and apparently it did the job. We had a dance off, the winners be none other than yours truly! Ty was a dancing machine. He busted out moves that surprised even him. At one point he even found himself spinning on the floor after a few break dancing moves. But what won us the contest? Well, I danced half way down the line, stopped lifted my dress and Ty slid right on through my legs. It really was quite the sight! What a cool husband I have! We really had one of the funnest times ever!

The beautiful Kaari and birthday boy Lance, and of course PROM King and Queen.

Tracy and Jeff...and the wonderful backdrop...seriously?!

I stole a couple pics from Tracy since I didn't have my camera there. Thanks Trace

what a great night and I love the outfits! I'm impressed with the hair. I know I was doing my own hair in the 80s, but i"m not sure I could do it again like that!

Okay! I am so jealous! That is totally my kind of party. That look so fun. I love your hair, and I was a little surprised that it looked so good. Are you sure you don't normally do your hair like that. It seems so effortless.
