Prom 95

So I actually went to two proms in 1995. I went to Rockville's prom with Will. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of that one. (Shiloh has them. She went to that prom with John that year.) I remember we had a good time though. Originally the plan had been that I would wear a black dress and Will was going to get an all white tux. Unfortunately the black dress that I wanted proved to be out of my price range. So I settled for a little gold number. I think it still looked pretty good with Will's white tux, but Shiloh will have to upload those pictures in order for you to be the judge.

I went to my own school's prom. With Danny again. He went totally "country" on us that time. It was okay with me though. I guess I always was a sucker for boots and jeans. (Look at who I married.)
Shiloh went with Danny's friend Gilbert "Gib" Freeman that year, so it was fun to get to go together.

This is Danny's brother, Matt. He was a kick in the pants and we used to enjoy goofing around together.





This is my friend Graham, and his date, Charity, who didn't go to our school. But she seemed nice enough anyway.


Russ Walters and Heather somebody....


Meghann & Riss

Dagmar was a German foreign exchange student who was in my French class and lived just up the road from us. That's my dress from homecoming, which I loaned her because she didn't want to invest in a new dress for one prom when she was headed back to Europe in a few short weeks. I can't say that I blame her. I'm just glad the dress got some good use.

Ben White & Alyssa Thompson
Somewhere there is a picture of me, Ben, Graham, Charity & Sarah Torbert. I don't remember where I put it now though...


The post prom party that year was fun. It was called, "Standoff at Tombstone." The only problem was that my parents volunteered to run one of the booths. That was only slightly more than a little embarrassing. But oh well. At least they looked the part. Everyone thought it was great that our parents took the trouble to dress up.


They had karaoke at the post prom that year. I just remember we sang a Patsy Cline song together.

Dang, I looked good!!!!! :-) Er.... I mean, Wow, you girls looked beautiful. And I liked the shorts. since Since Shiloh is pretty coordinated throughout, I figure you or Cami helped her out, right?
(I love you Shiloh, I am sorry you inherited my fashion sense during your teen years.)

Way cute Cali. What fun pictures to bring out and post. I wouldn't dare bring my dance pictures out. Actually, I have no idea where they are. We are coming up to Idaho Falls at the end of August. Would love to come see you while we are there.

Cali was also very small. In fact i haven't been able to fit into that dress since I was 11.

Riss said...
