Prom 2010

The Mommyologist is hosting a bloggy prom.  When I first read about it HERE I realized that it was true.  I did have a closet with several fancy dresses that never get worn.  But did any of them fit? 
Just 10 months post-partum from the twins, my body still hasn't recovered.
The first 2 dresses, sadly, didn't work.
But then I found one that was a little more stretchy.
Now that I had a dress, I had to do this my own way.
See, I'm a self-professed tomboy.  Sometimes I might wear a dress or skirt to teach my classes.  And I wore a lot of dresses when I was preggo with the twins (because face it - nothing else would fit over The Belly).  But that's kind of the exception.  So if I'm going to do something like put on formal wear, I need to balance that out a little bit.  Guess what else is gathering dust besides my dresses because I'm so wrapped up in this whole raising-3-boys thing?
My dear, dear horse Phoenix.
Who better to take with me to prom?
Of course, the minute I walk out the door in my black formal dress and tall black riding boots, who do I see?
My neighbor, Joe.  Embarassing.
"Where are you going in that get up?"
To catch my horse, of course.
Scooter, our border collie, acted as chaperone.


Phoenix didn't even try to eat my corsage.  I trained him well.


Pierce watched us leave.  No kids allowed at this prom.

Phoenix wore his black tie - a dressage saddle and bridle in formal black, with a black velvet saddle pad.  I think we complimented each other well, don't you?

Course he desperately needs a hair cut.  What can you do though?  He was totally raised in a barn.

I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to seeing what others did for Blog Prom 2010.  Go check out the Mommyologist to find out!

lol I so meant to say horse not house

Hayley said...

You are ten shades of awesome. I love that you got up on that horse in formal wear. Pure awesomeness.

Is it weird that I got rid of all my formal dresses? Am I not a normal girl? I thought they were taking up too much closet space, so I took them to the Utah Mormon version of the Salvation Army.
