It's a love story.....

Senior prom 2009...Love Story

It was one of the greatest nights ever. Friends, food, dancing, reminiscing, riding around in a nice car, and getting dressed up. All some of my favorite things and I had over 12 straight hours of it. My dress was gorgeous, something out of a dream. It was styled like the Disney Princess Belle's yellow ball gown. I felt like a princess the entire night as I wore it. I even had a little girl run up to me when we were eating wanting to touch my dress. It was almost heartbreaking when her mom scooped her up real fast and scolded her. I felt like I got her in trouble.

The original plans were for my friends to meet at my house, then Coady and I would go to where his mom works, and then we'd meet up again with everyone at the the restraunt. Plans never completely go right though. My friends were running half an hour late so after Coady and I took pictures at my house we decided to just have my friends meet us at his mom's work and then we'd go to Cheddar's together. I almost freaked out when we got to Cheddar's because the wait was going to be so long, but they hurried things along and we were seated in about half an hour. The food was delicious and we got out of there in plenty of time to get downtown.

The prom itself was beautiful. The Junior class went all out and it showed. The theme was based off of Taylor Swift's song Love Story. The colors were black, silver, and a light blue. They had a punch fountain and a chocolate fountain. The dj was great and since most of us knew him he played whatever song we wanted without any questions. I danced almost every song. I never got bored.

After prom we walked outside to find that it was pouring down rain. Some of the streets to the bowling alley were completely flooded and we had to drive slow to keep from hydroplaning. Once we got to the bowling alley, we realized there was no way we were going to bowl anytime soon. Coady and a couple of my friends decided to just go back to my house and watch a movie.

It was a relief to get home safe and sound and out of the rain. We watched Another Cinderella Story to continue the princess feeling of the night. A couple more friends joined us before we headed to senior breakfast at the church hall. Basically, senior breakfast is a way for parents to get their kids in from the parties. After breakfast we headed back home and finished the movie.

Even the stressful parts of last night are already funny. I'm a little sad thats it's my last prom but I'm glad it was as perfect as it could be.

Feel the rain falling hard on my shoulders....

I've had this song stuck in my head all day!! Back and forth by Lanae Hale is my favorite song right now. It just reminds me that no matter how fast and hard the "storm" seems to be hitting me, I'll be alright. Lately, things just seem to be coming from all directions. Sometimes I want to please everybody, other times I realize that it's not possible and focus on what I want. Neither methods are great. When I try to please everyone else I end up with a lot of extra unrewarding work, and when I try to do my own thing I feel guilty and selfish. I'm trying to work to find middle ground.....

My parents, friends, and my boyfriend are amazing though. I wouldn't put up with me if I was them. I feel like I've been a stressed out mess with prom, school, and graduation coming up. Speaking of prom......

I have some pictures from my boyfriend's prom

We had a lot of fun. A ton of pictures were taken but I haven't seen them yet. The last one is my favorite and was taken in the limo on the way to eat. We were posing smiley for a cute picture and then he turned his head and gave me a hug at the last second. The girl taking the picture couldn't stop laughing.

Softball, Easter, and Baseball this weekend. I leave tomorrow afternoon to go on an overnight trip with the softball girls and get back sometime late Saturday. Then Sunday is Easter with the family at the baseball park. Should be a lot of fun and a lot of catching up to do.

Well I have to go pack for tomorrow night. 12 girls....this will be interesting ha ha.

I'm going out tonight in my red high heels.......

PROM TONIGHT! :) I've got my hair fixed and my nails done and it's only 1 in the afternoon. ha ha My boyfriend will be here in a few hours to take pictures then we're going to meet the limo and head into town. I'll be sure to put some pictures of tonight on here later.

This week has been busy with the last batch of scholarship applications being due and dance tryouts all week. I didn't get home before 6 any day this week. I loved teaching the dance girls their tryout dance though. My friends and I were saying the whole time how we wished we were trying out again. But we're not Charmers anymore.. :( I have a little over a month of school left, and considering that most of that is testing days, it's not a good time to get senioritis. I've been fighting the sickness a lot this week. I just want to goof off and not do homework. I just have to buckle down and bare with it though.

I have to finish getting ready for tonight though...maybe more updates later
