Oh Those High School Dances Blog Hop

I'm hesitant to do this post. Hence the reason I had to sleep on it before posting! Maybe it's the completely dorky photos or the fact that my funniest story is embarrassing...either way, here it goes...
Thanks, Kelley Lynn and Emily King for hosting!!



Hands On

It was homecoming my sophomore year. I reluctantly went with my (at-the-time) boyfriend. I say reluctant because I was secretly in love with the man I'm married to today! Said boy and I attended the dance and he was all hands, literally. Hubby and his friends laughed at me because said boy was acting like a male dog marking "his" territory. Needless to say, I ditched Mr. Handsy (that very night!) and started dating the boy I ended up marrying 21 years ago. (Do you know how embarrassed I was dancing with a groping partner??? Gives me the willies just thinking back.)

Unfortunately, I threw away pictures with Mr. Handsy. But, here are two pictures of my hubby and I.

                                      



                                              
What baby faces we had! Btw, if you're not familiar with mums for homecoming, that would be the gaudy flower pinned to my dress.







Junior year, Sadie Hawkins--girl asks boy.







Did anyone else notice that I wore the same shoes to both dances??? Ha ha, what a dork!

  2. Aw, look at those pics! The bow across the chest is my favorite dress. I love that you went with your hubby. My husband and I were high school sweethearts too.

    Thanks for participating! I'm a new follower. :)

    1. Thanks, Emily!! When I was in high school there was a mean joke amongst the girls. It went like this: "The bigger the bow, the smaller the brain." Now, I didn't think it was very funny because I loved BIG bows! My husband's little sister (a year younger than me) used to say it to me every day.

    And Mr. Handsy... gag.

    1. Yeah, he wasn't too smart was he? Who thinks they can go around touching peeps like that??? Mine were only flats. I've never been able to wear heels. I trip!

    1. No, he didn't deck him. He just laughed at him. When we went to our 20th, hubby was still laughing at him!!!

  6. Kelley, it sometimes has its drawbacks though, honestly! I love it that we're still married, but we had to grow up together basically. Talk about uphill battles some days. But, over everything, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    I wonder if Mr. Handsy realized how creepy it was?

  8. Didn't notice the shoes. I probably wore the same pair to mine too. Mostly cause I wasn't a heels girl and rarely wore them. Black patent leather 1" heel. They might still be in the closet.

  12. These pics are so classic! Love it!

    I think it's great you could use the same shoes for two different dances. That's smart, in my opinion, not dorky! :)
