Here is a picture of my Junior Prom with my friend, John Slater. I was never asked to Prom by anyone in my school. (rolling eyes) So, I had to import a prom date Junior and Senior year. John and I went to Grammar School together and he was always so sweet. (I think we made a great prom couple, don’t you?) My Mom dropped me off at his house and he drove to the prom in his White Altima, which I loved since it looked like a Mercedes. It was fun arriving in his car. I did not get to ride in a limo for prom, but had the chance on my Wedding Day. 🙂 He was so sweet to match me to a tee and buy a beautiful corsage. It was a “coming out” kind of feeling for me, that Prom Night. I felt like a Princess and had the feeling I was grown up on that day. It was a very special night to be alone with a guy and all my friends, dancing the night away. My husband and kids don’t understand why I keep this picture, but it is special to me because it was SUCH an exciting start to being a woman from a little girl. We had a great night. He was such a gentleman and a great date. No kiss though….that was a bummer.
2. Would you rather be on the biggest loser or a food eating challenge?
Probably biggest loser. Food challenge? No….I have a weak stomach these days and would much rather lose the weight, although I do not have that much weight to lose to be on the show, unless I wanted to look anorexic. No thanks.
3. Done fave sonic drink? Refreshing summer drink? (Hey, Kristina…was that a typo, or some “done good” Southern thing?)
My favorite Summer Drink is a Sangria Slushie. It is kind of a fruit smoothie except with Yago Wine and lots of ice. Love it.
Frozen blueberries, strawberries, etc too.
It is a hit at my summer parties, which I love to host.
4. What was your first car, and what did you call it?
Ah, my first car. It was a beautiful Monte Carlo. Beautiful brown with a Notre Dame Sticker in the back window. (Coincidentally, my Son has a car with the same dang sticker, in the same place…weird) I called her Monte…..and I loved to drive her everywhere. Monte even saved my life when I got into an accident. Totaled that poor baby, but I will always remember her for saving my life. Good ole Monte.
5. What’s one thing your child or spouse does that sends you over the edge?
One thing? That is so hard to pinpoint. I do have a child that sends me over the edge, who will be nameless, but that “CHILD” loves to aggravate the other children in the house by teasing, making fun, hoarding games, computer time, snack food, you name it. This “CHILD” is older and I believe should know better, but they DON’T. 🙂 THAT sends me over the edge. Husband is almost perfect, but I don’t like sitting near him when it is quiet and he is chewing. (Love you, honey….he hardly reads my blog, but just in case….)
