Prom Dress Shopping
I was fortunate enough today to get to take my 17 year old daughter shopping for her prom dress. Now, I know to many moms shopping with their 17 year old for a prom dress would not be that exciting. For me it was, because my daughter lives 12 hours away. I've never gotten to go shopping with her for a formal dress. She moved in with her dad 8 years ago when I was a tad bit unstable and unable to care for anyone but myself and I didn't even do that very well. Luckily I never lost custody as I have an amazing ex-husband who helped me get sober and back on my feet. Ash and I fly her down as often as possible usually every 90 days or so and for a month during the summer. I never imagined dress shopping would be as amazing as it was, We hit every store in a 30 mile radius and tried on tons of dresses. We finally settled on the most beautiful short dress that is accented with peacock feathers at the waist. It's perfect as the theme of her dance is Alice in Wonderlands Mad Hatters Tea Party. She's going to be a beautiful vision, I only wish I was able to help her with her hair and make-up before she goes.
