Wanna Go To the Prom?

So I've been thinking...um...well...you see there's this dance...and...um...well...

Wanna go with me?

I'm proposing we have a blog prom. I have no idea if someone else is already hosting one, but why not go to two? I mean you'll have the dress/tuxedo and all.

So here's what I'm thinking. Let's do it the last weekend in March. I know it's a little early for the "traditional" prom season, but hey that's what's great about not being in high school anymore. We can have prom whenever we want to.

So start digging through your photo albums and pull out those dusty old pictures, get them scanned. We're having ourselves a prom!

And this isn't going to be a one night affair. We want to see you getting ready, we want to see your ride, the flowers, your date, the after-party...the whole shebang. Didn't go to prom? Tell us about what you did instead or get dressed up and take some pictures of yourself to share.

On Friday, March 30th write a post about getting ready for the big night. Post any pre-prom pictures. Did you go to the tanning bed the day before? Did you have your hair done or did you do it yourself? How did you ask your date? How did your date ask you?

On Saturday, March 31 tell us about the night. And we want pictures!!! We want to see your terrific taffeta or lovely lace. Did you sport the powder blue tux or was it tails? Did you hoof to the dance or was their a fancy limo? What was the theme? Were you the queen/king?

On Sunday, April 1 we want to hear all about the after-party. Did you stay up all night? Where did you go? Again, pictures.

Let me know if you want to go and I'll start a guest list. If anyone knows how to make a button so you can tell people about it and post it on your blog, I'd be happy to include it. I'm just not that talented--yet.

I'll also start thinking about categories for a prize or two. I went to the prom in the late 80's, so I can promise LOTS of hair. Any other ideas to make the prom better? Let me know. You can be on the prom committee too.

So that's it. That's my idea. I hope you wanna go with me. I think we'll have fun...my dad's going to let me borrow his car.

I never went to prom. I have no pictures or a night out. Boo.

Oh, The Joys said...

OH. MY. G*D.

I will be uber scary.

MamaLee said...

EEK!

I went to 5 proms, but I haven't shared any pics of me or my family online.

Hm. I'll chaperone!

i didn't go to my prom. I went to my boyfriend's prom though and thought it was super lame! I just never got into the girly stuff like that.

Robyn said...

I am so there. I have great prom stories. And by great, I mean terrible. Now let me see if I can actually dig up the photos.

Oh, I loved prom! The occasion ... the intrigue! ... the incredible boringness that was the event itself. But getting ready with a good girlfriend was always fun! I'll play!

QueenieBadd said...

Dude, I LOVE this idea! But of course I would-I went many a prom (actually three-junior and senior of my own, and junior when I was a sophomore).

I was just that loserly.

But I am TO-TALLY doing this.

Housewife said...

No prom but I did blog about why...

Karen said...

I never went to prom, but I'm in--I'll make a button, too--but wow there's not much time!

canape said...

If Whymommy is playing, then I have to as well. Get it on.

She and I killed at least 1/4 of the ozone in a single night all in the name of good hair.

I'm requesting a live band though, instead of a dj. Because if my date sucks, I want to be able to flirt with the guitar player.

Housewife said...

I drafted my blog entry and I'll add it on prom night.

pfft...

Sorority girls...

I'll play! Marked on the calendar...flouncy dress dusted off and hanging on the closet door...fist full o' anti-anxiety meds. Y'know, like my real prom. :-)

SuperSnark said...

I invited some other peeps. Hope crashers are okay!

This would be hilarious. I went to two proms. Big poofy sleeves were in for the first (and I'm talking POOFY and FLORAL). I wore a mauve-colored satiny "vintage" dress to my senior prom. I have no idea where these photos are, though.

Hey, crashing from over at Supersnark's site, I love this idea. Prom is such an American institution, whether you go or not, everyone has a story about "the night". Hell, I'll even run out and buy a terrible dress at the local thrift shop if I have time, I'm sure they have something era appropriate I can squeeze my big ole' post partum butt into....it might be just what I need.

Count me in! Me and my GIGANTIC hairbow will be there with bells on.

What a great idea! I'm thinking about posting something tomorrow! :)
