HOCO2019

Yesterday was a busy day!  Valerie went to her first high school homecoming dance last night.  We bought the dress and shoes weeks ago and scheduled the hair and makeup appointment.  She made plans with a group of friends to meet for dinner and head to the dance after. 

Where did my little girl go?   Val does not wear makeup at all or do much with her hair.  Seeing her all made up - wow.  She looked so grown up. 

Excuse me while I cry in the corner and bombard y'all with pictures of my beautiful, smart, and talented daughter. 












We dropped her off at the dance and waited at a nearby piano bar.  Just before eleven, she texted and said she was ready to leave.  We picked her up and I asked the loaded question, "How was it?"

 "Kind of lame," she says. 

Lame.  She didn't even take a dance picture.

Then back at home, we had to un-do all the glamour, and she said all of that was too much work.  Too much to put it on and too much to take it off!   (She ain't lyin'!)   

Val did say she had a little fun and it was nice seeing everyone all dressed up.   At least it wasn't all lame.  I guess that isn't too bad for a first high school dance experience.

  1. She looks so beautiful. Her hair is amazing. That's a sweet photo of the two of you. I never went to a high school dance, so I am happy she had this opportunity (and the photos) to look back over when she gets older. Wishing you guys a nice week.

    1. Thanks! I think it wasn't quite what she was expecting. Next time will be better if she decides to go.

  5. Oh, your daughter looks lovely. Her make-up looks really nice, and her hair style is so pretty. Yes, I remember all the work that is involved with these dances - and the expense of it all! But the main thing is she had fun, and she just made a fond high school memory. I like how you got the brick in the background, it looks cool.

    ps.....your Mother's Rosary sounds beautiful with the real scented rose petals. I'd love to see it sometime. Is it still in the family?
