Homecoming 2007

Tonight is the Homecoming dance at our high school. On Tuesday(!) Morgan told us that she was going to be going to the dance with her friends and that she would need to go shopping on Friday...with her friends...alone...at the mall.

We said okay to the dance, but drew the line at shopping for the dress alone with friends. Yesterday I took her to meet her friends so they could look for dresses. Whenever they found one they'd call me on my cell phone and have me come see. They did pretty well, once they moved out of the women's' department when looking for dresses for Morgan! The other two girls found pretty party/dance/holiday dresses. Then we were off to look at some dresses I had set aside at the department store.

Aside from the "Ew, I can't believe you thought I'd like a cheetah print." I think I did okay! She wouldn't even try that dress on! We ended up buying two dresses, once that is more party/holiday, and one that she'll wear to the dance.

The best part of the purchase was that her dress cost less than her hot chocolate at Starbucks! Got to love that sale!

Then, of course, we had to buy shoes. I knew that was coming because she's been claiming to own only flip flops and running shoes. I found that hard to believe but knew that she didn't have any fancy, strappy, break-your-ankle shoes!

She does now.

Wow! My niece had a cute black dress for her homecoming last week too...my brother said he liked that it was black as he had a great sweatshirt for her to wear over it!
