Prom/Tasha's first date





THE DRESS, THE HAIR, THE SHOES, THE MAKE-UP, OH MY!!!

What, the boys have a flower? Oh Brittany can come up and do my hair.
No wait Brittany has to stay in Utah. Strike 1. 
But wait Sharilyn just called and is coming up with Erik she is a girly girl and knows all about hair, makeup, dress, shoes, etc. she can do my hair. eeeekk Sharilyn just called and can't come up. Strike 2.
 Yikes now what. Can my mom really sew because my dress can't be strapless. Strike 3. 
I'm doomed. That's right I'm on the decorating committee too, AND this is my first date. Oh the pressure.

Mom's Take on the situation. 
Boy asked leaving a week and a half to do all those girl things. 
Ok I can sorta sew so I made three different options and let Tasha choose her favorite. We borrowed shoes, bought the dress at the recycle store, learned how to do makeup from "you tube" by Lauren Luke (she is amazing, love her videos), had Tasha go to the florist to learn about boutonniere (wow big word had to use dictionary .com for that one) and order it, got Brittany on the web cam with Mickayla and Tasha for 2 hours doing hair, took a deep breath and poof a princess was ready for the ball. Now pass the bon-bons and remote I need a break.








                   Tasha's date was a WONDERFUL YOUNG MAN named Brandon.


             The prince and princess at grand march.  Brandon was even voted Prom King.
                                                             What a wonderful evening.

OH MY GOODNESS!! HOLY LOCK HER IN A CLOST TILL SHE IS 31 BATMAN!!

Looks like EVERYONE did awesome. I am so not a girly girl---it makes me tired just to read about all the prep work! I can't believe you got that dress at the 2nd hand store! You rock! The pictures were cute--
YES--you did it--you should OWN the remote!

Hi Tasha,
my gorgeous grand-daughter. Your dress turned out really nice and what talent in your family to have three options.

You looked so nice and jumped through some really awesome hoops to get there. Looks like you had a ton of fun. Wish I could have been a little mouse in the corner to share this special night with you. And your date also looked like a very nice young man.

I am so happy for you and even happier to have you for my grand-daughter.

Love you so much! Grandma
