Prom Queen

Since it's May and all the high school kids are getting ready for prom, I thought I would join in the blog fun of posting your prom pictures. Except I didn't even go to my prom! WHA?? I know, I didn't get asked. It still haunts me (just kidding) I was terribly shy with guys in high school and didn't date much then.

Sadly enough, my grades my first year in college tell the story of how I got over that fairly quickly!
Here are the rules...

1. Upload your prom picture. If you don't have one, email your mom and have her send it to you.
Or use really bad scans like I did!

2. Don't forget to include the year it was taken. Again, don't be shy. The older the better. (I don't think I could see any older than mine!)

3. Grab the "Prom Queen" button and add it to your post.

4. Copy and Paste the rules to your blog

5. Tag 5 others!

Classic piano bench pose. Don't G and I look like we are having playing the piano together? Totally. If you look closely you might be able to see the tan goggle glass line on the side of my face. I tanned a LOT in 1990. Duh.
Cute G and I before the dance. I think we went and saw The Little Mermaid after. Not kidding. I grew up with G and and we were best friends that freshman year away at school. What a great guy - I keep in touch with his family and he is now a Doctor on their way to start a new job in FL!
ps..I loved that dress. It was this taffeta 1990 crispy material and I had hot 3" navy blue SUEDE heels I would wear with it! Sweet. College Homecoming Dance. Oh....this dress! Another favorite. My roommate Pam made it for me in like two days. She is a great seamstress like that. I still have it tucked away somewhere. Look at those acrylics. If you can get past looking at my huge shellacked hot rollered hair.
I love big hair. Always have, always will. I dated this dude, B for two years. That is all I'm gonna say about that.
College Christmas Dance. Same guy, B, as in "Bleh." (I may be bitter, he broke my heart and I never really recovered.) But that was my first corsage and I was so happy. As happy as a girl could be in a giant Jessica McClintock dress that had 6 inch long lace and three layers of tulle for extra "poof."
Me and my good friend C. What a fun guy - so much fun it was like I was his girlfriend. Oh wait. He didn't have girlfriends. (We found THIS out later.) No harm done. We later attended the U together and is still so near to my heart. cute. So tan.

I tag anyone who wants to play! I'd love to see all your hot 90's dresses. Or if you were in Kindergarten that year, you know the dresses you wore to your favorite dances!!

So fun! I love you big hair - but your pretty face looks the same. :)

Kristen said...

This looks fun! I will do it. You look so pretty and... tan... I loved Jessica McLintock :) however you spell it. I went to homecoming with a guy that never had girlfriends and now we know why too! Hmmm, funny!

Jenny and Jared said...

Oh these pictures are darling!! You were and still are so beautiful.

KEYSHA said...

Whooo whoo! Look'n hot Kristen. My favorite is the Jessica McLintock dress! (And the shallacked hair:) You were a babe, even then. What a great walk down memory lane. No promises that I'm going to take that same walk, but you never know!

Emily said...

That was way fun. You had some pretty hot dresses.

Chris said...

Well, I called my mom for a picture. I can't promise anything though. I mean, really...shouldn't I have a picture of my prom? I will say, however, that I thoroughly enjoyed your dress tour!!

Melinda said...

I love your pictures! You were totally a Kelly (saved by the bell). Sadly, I never went to my senior prom either! I was a feminazi who thought guys were all jerks and didn't have any guy friends. That means no boyfriends and no dates in high school. I do have one from a girl's choice dance at BYU. Maybe I'll do it with that!

My pics are skanky So. Cal prom style. NICE!
I wonder where they are...after the funeral I'll ask my mom to dig them up :)

I absolutely LOVE the one with the piano! It is fantastic! I have never seen that before, but it's a lot better than the usual prom poses, I gotta say!

Allison said...

I love this post Kristen! I will definitely do it but give me some time. :) You are a hotty!

mali said...

LOVE the pictures of you and Greg. I have never seen those before. You are so adorable in all of your pictures. I never got asked to prom either. Somehow I really don't care. Interesting how we "move on"!
Cute post!!

Love it! I love the Jessica McClintox dresses, we use to go to the outlet in SF and buy some there. I got my prom dress there for 20 bills it was actually a wedding dress. You are one hot mamma!!

Meredith said...

These are priceless! I have no idea where my prom pics are buried, but it's probably better for them to stay there. :)
