PROM 1986

Coco was looking for something in the back of her closet and found my prom dress from 1986. We took it out to look at it and she wanted to try it on. I can't believe I was so tiny. I was 17 years old when I wore this dress and Coco is 81/2 and it was snug around her belly. I don't have a scanner or I would post a photo of me wearing the same dress.

I offered to save it for her prom and she quickly decided that she would desire something else. At this rate I don't think it will fit her when she is 17! It wouldn't fit one of my legs today. Scott says something was wrong with me, if I was that little. Well, I ate more than my Daddy but I had a very fast metabolism. Wonder where that went????
While Mom was here yesterday one of Coco's winter coats was laying on the couch so she picked it up and it just fit, little girls size 10/12. Of course Mom didn't not have a growth spurt at 30 like I did ! What do they say, just more of me to love!!!!
These photos with ones of me in the dress will make a great scrapbook page!

I remember those dresses! I didn't vote for Obama either but believe like you do, we must give him a chance and I pray he surprises me. I know how you feel about going back to work, but I'm sure the right job will find you, till then, enjoy your days at home. I'm almost done with my valentines too! Have fun!
