emily’s senior prom & a funny


a few years ago when ariana grande’s, featuring iggy azalea, song Problem released, there just so happened to be a little boy drama in our home. now let me insert here, we’ve had little to no boy drama, for whatever that’s worth. so anyways, the first time i heard this song i was in the car with my girls & the talk was about the aforementioned boy drama. well. the song being basically background music & all, i thought she was saying, ” i got one less prom without you”.  and being the cool mom i like to think i am i recovered in a timely manner & picked up that she actually says problem not prom.  well i thought that was just so darn funny that i told my girls…hey ya’ll, i thought she was saying “one less PROM without you”…hahaha!!

only to be followed by “are you kidding me mom? you have forever ruined the song for me as i will now & forever more think that”.

i still have to laugh to myself every time i hear that song because, really. what fun would life be if you always had the correct lyrics running through your head?

“she’s got electric b@&bs & mohair shoes”…ring a bell anyone?

now that i’ve lost you all….i must share my sweet emi on senior prom. this has to be one of the most stunning gowns i’ve ever seen. she literally took my breath away. i realize it’s “mature” but i love how she simplified & softened the look by wearing her hair soft & adding some free people accessories as well.

absolutely beautiful my sweet emi. absolutely beautiful.


& for your entertainment pleasure…

Lucinda - There is an old song from the 60’s called Secret Agent Man for most of my life I thought they were saying Secret Asian Man. My husband still makes fun of me. Breathtaking pictures. Does it all seem like it’s moving too fast. Seems like your oldest just graduated from high school.

Sasha - Oh my word I do this too!! I can’t tell you how many times I think it’s a word and it’s not in a song. Currently singing “Sugar… YOU’RE SWEEEEEET” to a song and my whole family laughs. I like it better with my lyrics and they make more sense to me.

She looks gorgeous. I laughed when you said you realize it’s Mature. She could be a movie star!!

Sasha - Also i think I want one of your cow canvases for above my computer. Been toying with it for a while. The pin board feels like too much visual clutter so close to my kitchen so I moved it into the hallway and I love it there…. but now I have a blank space. ARe they on this site? I need to go hunt for them…

Lisa - I agree with Ginger, and was thinking the same thing–she looks like a Greek Goddess. That dress was made for her. Just beautiful.

Tammie - Paige,
Seriously brought tears to my eyes as It brought back watching my Beautiful daughter’s all dressed for prom and then head off to college. You have a way to make me tears eyed and bring back a lot of amazing memories and also remember those times when I wanted to be their friend more than their Mom. Gina one of the commenters said your daughter looked like a Greek Godess and that was exactly my thought when I see her picture. You have an amazing and absolutely Beautiful Family. What a beautiful family picture and nice addition of her BF. Lucky Momma and Dad
