Oh Those High School Dances! Blog Hop

Junior Prom
Kelley Lynn at Between the Bookends and Emily R. King are hosting an "Oh, Those High School Dances! Blog Hop" today.

People are sharing photos and stories from high school dances.

I thought I would put a 2012 spin on my 1988 junior high school prom.

Here's a tweet, if there had been Twitter back then:

Prom date works at flower shop. Can you tell? Dancing night away w/ #friend @BrotherWaylon #verycasual #havingfun

I attended Junior Prom with a friend I met at an FBLA camp — that's Future Business Leaders of America. Oh, I had so much fun traveling around the state of Georgia attending competitions, camps and conferences in high school. It was a great way to get out of the comfort bubble of my small hometown and meet new people. I met my friend and future prom date Brother Waylon (I can't remember why we called him Brother. I did live in the South).

If you need a dose of high school inspiration or maybe a giggle at our outfits, visit the other blogs on the hop.

  3. This whole prom things is such a foreign concept to a European, as is the big graduation thing in high school, but sure am enjoying these blog memories today.
