Blast from the past...

For some reason, I was telling Jenna about my prom dress and she had never heard of "dotted swiss." So I had to dig out the prom pictures so she could see. This picture cracks me up. First of all, there's the poofy dress - I wish I had a picture of the bow in the back. Seriously. And you can't see the baby's breath tucked in my hair. Nice. Then there's Jeff's maroon tuxedo. Hey, it was 1984 - maroon tuxedos were like, totally radical! Then the fact that the sun is so bright we can hardly look at my mom, whose shadow you can see at the bottom of the picture. It's classic bad photography. I love it.

Oh, and coincidentally, I found out later that my friend Heidi in California had gotten the same dress, only in pink!

That was Jeff's senior prom - I was a junior. I didn't go to my senior prom. How could I have topped that dress, anyway?

Somewhere I have a copy of this very picture, or one in the same series, filed inside a folder labeled "Deanna" and stuffed inside some scrapbooking box...
