Embarrassing Flashback



Thanks to Kelsey at Authentically Me for tagging me in the Prom Queen post!

The rules are to find some old prom pictures and post about them. What a fun little tag! 

I vividly remember picking out my dresses for junior and senior prom and just loving them. I mean LOVING. Oh, and I thought I looked so glamorous. Man, was I wrong. 

My mom always told me that I would look back at pictures someday and say "Oh geez" or "What the heck was I thinking wearing that out of the house?" I always told her she was wrong. I just knew that I would never look at a picture and hate my outfits/hair/makeup. 

I grimace at the thought of admitting it. But, she was totally right. I mean, who seriously thought it was okay to wear glitter...all over the place: my hair, my eyes, my body? Ugh.

Well, here we go...

Junior Prom: 2001
 Mr. Ruby actually took my best friend!!! 
(Little did she know she would be my maid of honor in our wedding just 5 years later.)

Senior Prom: 2002
Could my hair be any blonder? Check out Mr. Ruby's highlights!
This is the night Mr. Ruby and I started liking each other...aww

Senior Prom: 2002
Does anyone else see the irony in the fact that I'm wearing a white dress and Mr. Ruby is in a tux? 
We were only friends at this point!

So cute that you guys are high school sweethearts!

My senior prom dress was a seafoam colour, so quite light, and lots of people have thought they were wedding pictures because it looks almost white in some pictures!! Umm, no, definitely not! Haha

I think you look great! And it is so sweet that you knew your husband in high school and went to prom with him :-)

I can't believe you married the guy you went to prom with :) Good thing I didn't!

haha, You're too critical of yourself - you were just as beautiful then as you are now and everyone thought so. :) I'm pretty sure I purposely avoided having pics taken of me at all of our HS dances. Fun, but AWKWARD times.

OH MY STARS!

Those pics are absolutely hysterical! And... might I note, I look better without highlights and a bee-hive.

Love it, sang!
