Prom 2011....

Saturday, June 11, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam! Its early here in Chicago & still overcast from the weather yesterday. My oldest son went on prom last night & it was cloudy & light misting. He wore a white suit with a blue & silver accents. I don't know if I could use such language with a man but hey since he is my son & its my blog Ima do how I do. lol He was so handsome & he wanted to borrow our benz but it was kinda uncomfortable & no air. I don't know about you but when I am dressed up I tend to get a little warm. So we had 2 options, ask our cousin who owns a cadillac CTS to borrow hers or ask a good friend to borrow his camaro. Now my son who is a car enthusiast LOVES the camaro. But I was apprehensive about asking to borrow it? So I told him lets just use the benz & that way we are responsible on our part. Well I did ask the friend & we got the camaro. The camaro was midnight blue with a drop top. I drove it home & I could not believe all the attention & drama I was getting. I felt like I was a young girl with many admirers again. lol So we drove it home & I parked it out front. He wasn't home but when he got back & saw the car you'd think he'd won the lottery!! He jumped around & hooped & hollered like we bought it for him? lol

So he got dressed & it took him an hour & a half. Mind you he had already taken a show, took a run downtown to find his prom location & pick the wings. I'll get to that later. . . . Well, I believe it doing it big for them cause part of it is for me. I love to do big directions & special little things for my loved ones. Some times even for unsuspecting strangers. So I got a few helium balloons & signs & flowers & cup cakes & more balloons. I got plastic cups & table clothes & little plastic wine glasses (I know not environmental sound) & macaroni & potato salad. I had my son order wings & then go pick them up. My family, friends & neighbors all came out to see him & he looks suave & debonair. lol He took the top down & went to pick her up & bring her back for more photos. Well we laughed talked & enjoyed each others company young & old. He came back & she was very pretty but as a parent I would not have co-signed on that dress. I mean it was blue with silver glitter thingys, she had 3 little diamonds cut in the front, it was a halt dress, came over her thighs & had a checkered blue & silver train. I guess this is all the rage in promdom now but I believe it the princess theory. They have another night to dress flashy I think it should be about sophistication & cinderella dresses. That's just me but I was censored & barred after the first dress incident. lol I got graduations for both my sons on Monday so the partying will never end. I will load photos another day but I am tired for now.

Today, once I am rested, I got walking to do, yoga with weights & cardio step aerobics. What are you guys up to today?

God bless & 2 down & 1 more child to go. . . .UGH!!!

    You did it up right! It must have been SUCH fun to see the look on your son's face when he saw that Camaro. Way to make memories!

    My day has been quiet & tedious here at home--I have mostly been assembling documents & numbers as part of my divorce process, ugh. So it's fun to picture you in a VERY different space.

    Now that's what I call a good friend...I'm afraid with a car like that I'd be a bit possessive! Can't wait to see the pic's. My DIL's brother went to prom and asked his sister to drive them in her Caddie...she did, of course. The girl had a Spanish theme goin' on with black and red and HIGHHHHHH stilettos. My girlfriend and I didn't get asked to the prom and my dad took us out to dinner that night. I think he felt worse than we did!

    congrats girl we both are celebrating. My son did not do the prom scene....he is different like and his father was in high school Low key. Not dating yet either. He is a late bloomer. He has plenty of time for that. He will be graduating with honors. We gonna hoop and holler and yell of course!!! He has worked so hard and steady! God is good. We celebrated by giving him 50.00 and took the family out to eat. Also our younger sons birth is Sunday ceremony day. So we celebrated his time too yesterday. The store he loves to go in gave him a small personal party with balloons etc. He was on cloud nine.
