Went shopping for the final time with my mom and daughter... And Lo and behold she got a dress! I would have heard angels singing, but I was crying too loudly over the cost of the dress.... Lol.

I know this is off topic, but I wanted to share with all of you! No pics of actual dress, but I will show them at prom next month!

We had such a great day, despite the awful weather.

Are any of your kids going to prom or semi formats? Any pictures to share?

 Angels singing!  It must have been a long time coming to find the dress!  Is that your daughter? - she's beautiful. 

No, my son's not quite 13, no proms yet.

Congratulations - I hope the loan goes through for the dress!  lol

Awww...I remember shopping with my mom for my prom dress! I think she cried too over the price! lol

Aidan is only 7, so no dances yet! But I'm going to cry like a baby when he goes to his first formal dance. All handsome in his tux!

My girls are only 2, 3 and due next month so no..... but i went to 5 proms (with the same guy) and I never spend over 100 on a dress..... but i was thrifty and even as a teen didn't like to spend a ton of money....

 I'm thrifty too so I was in sticker shock at some of the prices. I told her next time we bought a dress for that kind of money would only be on a wedding dress...lol.

 The prices are crazy!!! I went to the sale rack first but there were only a few...they said girls have been buying prom dresses since January , so I was a little late.

I know! And believe me, he'll be going to prom before you know it! OMG, my oldest son has been to 2 of his proms and the price to rent a tux is just about as worse as a prom dress! You need a prom piggy bank, lol!!!

 LOL! I just told her I wouldn't pay my electric bill!

We shopped 4 different times and although she had found a couple of dresses, they were as much as a wedding dress. There was no way! So she finally found two more she loved and we all convinced her to get her least favorite of the two. She looks so pretty! Prom is May 16th, so I'll post plenty of pics of her and her friends. Each one has driven their mother to a mini nervous breakdown, lol.
