Geesh. Remember back in the day, when you had a Pep Rally, Homecoming Football game and then a dance (in the CLOTHES YOU WORE TO THE GAME) and that was that? Fun right? These were some great memories for me. It was an exciting fall event that I always looked forward to. One year, I made Homecoming Court so I remember wearing my plaid skirt (with a giant pin to give it that Kilt look), white tights, navy flats , white blouse (buttoned up to the top) and because it was chilly, a red sweater vest to keep me warm. These were all clothes I owned. Actually, I wore them to church. Easy peesy.
Fast forward to the year 2013.
Dress: $90 (daughter 2) $45 (daughter 1) (and, for the record, these aren’t dresses you wear to church. Jus sayin)
Shoes: $65 (pair #1) $40 (pair #2)
Inserts for the shoes to make them comfortable for 15 minutes instead of 3: $10
Dinner $32 , $50 respectively
Bus: $30, $41
Flower : $12
Jar of spray tan to cover shin guard tan $13
Tickets to dance: $0(date bought them….)
Me, afterward after an evening of picking up kids , dropping off kids, pictures, more picking up and dropping off and trying to stay awake…..:
“How was the dance?” Her: “Boring”
Price of the memories made? Priceless.
