A couple Friday's ago Lauren went to her very first middle school formal. I didn't know anything about it until that Wednesday before. I asked her if she wanted to go and she said "meh, I don't think so." But when she saw everyone posting on facebook that they were shopping for new dresses, I think she changed her mind - Thursday evening.
Luckily she has a couple of dresses that would work for the requirements
of a formal (and in retrospect jeans and a tshirt would have worked
just fine - based on some of the outfits I saw). She picked a purple
dress from last Christmas and wore a pair of my black sandals and she
was set for a good time.
My goodness...my little girl is growing up!
