Prom Picture Tag...I'm It!

So Cadance had this crazy fun idea of creating a Prom picture tag...and who was one of her lucky victims nominees? MOI! So the rules of the tag are this:

❶ Leave me a comment guessing which Year this photo was taken...(yes the wrong guess might hurt our friendship...LOL...totally just kidding!) I will post the correct year in a few days after a few guesses come in...how fun!

❷ If I TAG you...DIG up your old Prom picture...post it and lets guess the date too...(if you really are that self-conscience and don't want us to know the date...maybe we can guess the decade?)

~If you are married to your Prom date let us know!

~If you are not...try to post a Prom picture of your Prom & a second picture of your husbands prom too...let us know where each of your Dates are now...and their relationship status!! (and of course YOU are way cuter than his Prom date!)

~If you are Single...let us know where your Prom date is now!

❸ I am gonna TAG some people...and then those taggers need to keep it going by tagging 5 other people! I can't wait to see all of your pictures! Fun huh!?

Note: the jagged line running from the top to bottom of this picture is indeed a rip that I had to tape back together. When my son was little, he decided to "help" mama scrapbook!

What I hate about this picture: a) the deep red nails and lips! b) HELLO! Can you say short? I can't believe my parents let me out of the house in this dress! I wouldn't let my daughters wear it! c) One of the black windows from the castle is right behind us and you can see it in between the 2 of us. The black paper blends with my dress and makes my belly look poochie!

What I like about this picture: No gray hairs!!!

So this was my boyfriend for a while in high school. We'll call him "S". No we did not get married! After we broke up I wasn't very nice to him, and have always felt kinda bad.

A few years ago I did run into him at a church service we were visiting when my nephew was blessed. It was weird! We ended up talking for a few minutes and I learned some really sad news about his family. His little boy later passed away, and Hubby and I sent a card with a small donation to help with medical and funeral expenses that they had accrued. They sent us a thank you note, and a while later they ended up looking us up and inviting us over for a BBQ!

I must say I was REALLY reluctant. It just seemed like it would be so awkward, but we wanted to be gracious, and we went to their home. It was so much fun, and relaxing and not weird at all! Our kids had a blast together, and his wife was as sweet as could be. They have since moved away, and I hope they're doing well.

I'm sorry, but I don't have a Prom picture from Hubby to post!

So now I TAG!

I tag:

Tanielle (I know she really wants to do this one!! heehee)



Heidi! (remember what I said about payback?)


Don't forget to leave me a comment guessing the year this picture was taken!


Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Oh, you are BAD!!!! Now I have to go digging. ;)

I guess 1995.

Tanielle said...

WoW!!! Can you say HOT!!!!!! Too cute my little friend! Love the super LONG skirt of the dress! I can't wait until Pixie wants to wear a short dress like this! You will have to say yes!!!HAHAHAHA...J/K

You're adorable, thanks for the tag, I'll get to it soon! I'm not going to guess, I know the year!


Unknown said...

I don't have a prom picture! Didn't go -- we all went out instead! Great picture -- Thanks for sharing!

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

You're GORGEOUS! From the tips of your red nails (and probably toes) to your cute lil' up-do!

Skinny tie, black dress with cap sleeves, black hose...Hmmmm. 1992?

Unknown said...

Oh my, how cute you are! I hate to try to guess the year, but I know you're younger than me, how about 1998?
I would love to participate, and thanks for tagging me, but I never went to the prom, so I don't have any pictures! Have a great day!

Rindlisbach Family said...

I guess 1994. Oh, and I married my prom date!

kado! said...

I ♥ it! You are so good to play along! I can't wait to see the pics of the people you tagged too....it's fun to look back and see how far we've come! ...and I totally see that black window right there...not a good idea the prop man had! I bet a lot of girls were upset about that placement!

You look HOT! I would have to say 1994? I need to post my answer...i'll get to that today!

shortmama said...

ok I am going to guess 1993? So glad I didnt go to prom, so I have no record of it haha.

Lara Phister said...

Funny! That is exactly how you look in most of my memories...remember...I'm a little younger than you! Okay, I'm going to figure out the year. I know the year you graduated, and the grade that the highschool you went to traditionally had the prom, but some girls were lucky and went all 3 years they were in highschool. So are you ready for my guess? 1993! Man...I was only 12 yrs old, does that date us or what??

Shawn said...

Lara was 12 when I was pregnant with my first daughter.

You were married in 1996, I'll give you 4 years after high school before you were married so my guess is 1992.

Dang Gina I'm OLD!

Mama Nut said...

Oh pa-lease! Your belly so does not look poochy. You were adorable. I'm guessing 1994 and am so glad I was not tagged for this!

jennykate77 said...

What a fun tag!! I'm guessing circa 1993? It's way cute!

Hope you're having a great day!

Amy said...

I am guess 1994. I did not go to prom either. My date was in the military and got sent away. I did not want to go.

You look hot!!!!!!

Jen said...

Just adorable! Where did the time all go? 1994...

HeatherPride said...

That weight-line hairdo on your BF is screaming 93 to me....

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

I'm guessing it's 1995 (the bangs). And hey - you tag me for the awful no fixing photo, but not for this!? I'm going to call the authorities. ;)

I don't see where your belly looks poochy. At. All.

Jen @ tatertotsandjello.com said...

Wow - I love it!!! I say 1996? I have no idea!! Cute picture though. And yes, about the dress. I don't think I wore a prom dress that had sleeves. I guess we didn't get the modesty memo in NY. I was a very immodest teenager - tanktops.

I have no idea where any of my pictures are. I will try to dig them up. Just to let you know, they are HIDEOUS!!! Maybe too embarrassing to post!



Michelle said...

My guess is early 90's. I really can't nail down an exact year. I always get a little nervous when I see stuff like this...thank goodness I wasn't tagged. Never went to my prom. Long story.

Thanks for sharing though...you looked great!

Jenny said...

I'm thinking 1995. This is the funniest tag game I've ever seen.

Heather said...

How hot were you! What a great tag idea.

Susan Lechuga said...


Amber Filkins said...

You are SO adorable!! And are you kidding me?? You look super skinny mini, I didn't see a pooch at all.

I'm not going to guess a time. I can't even remember the year I went to prom, lol. I guess it was 1996? I think?

so ya, that's my guess.

Unknown said...

Too cute I am guessing 1994

Heidi Boos said...

Well, my friend! I *wish* I could play along, but I never went to the prom! Not because I didn't want to, but because I wasn't ever asked!! I know...feel sorry for me. Bummer I can't play along, but I suppose if I really wanted to be a good sport, I do have a Homecoming picture I could pull out. :)

I think we're the exact same age, so we may have graduated the same year, so I'm going to guess 1995 - Junior Year Prom.

You look adorable!! ;)

The Masked Mommy said...

Love it! My guess will be for 1996. But what do I know? I would have only been 11 then. But it looks mid nineties to me :-). Happy Easter!
