getting ready…




ok. so this year felt different. it felt like she had a “real date” to this dance which was pretty cute to watch.

she went with Jack Brauer. when she told me his name I immediately screamed, “your going with Jack Bower from 24”!! she didn’t know the tv show so she had to look it up. ha. so yes, of course, everytime I see this poor kid I have to say, or yell…  “hi jack bower, 24”

everyone looked so beautiful & they were all having so much fun.

and of course, true to us, we couldn’t get thru the night without a few minor disasters. oh my word, she looked so pretty, I had just done her hair, she was finishing her makeup & I walked away for a minute. I came back & she had gotten makeup & lotion all over her beautiful dress. to say I was disappointed just might be the understatement of the year. her beautiful dress had stains all over it. I was pretty much ready to throw in the towel right there. but, I pulled it together. thankfully. because she looked gorgeous. no matter what.

we were in a little funk. we went to say hi to meme & papa & we were still early to meet everyone for pictures at her friend Juma’s house so we stopped at these railroad tracks for some pics. because who doesn’t get homecoming pics on the railroad tracks??!! ha.

so, on the tracks, she broke a nail. & then the kicker. she broke a shoe. at that point, after the dress being stained, the nail, the shoe. Mikayla & I, all we could do was laugh. like hysterically. I love you mik. I love that we move on from each & every little “disaster” & eventually, we laugh about it. hysterically.

you are gorgeous.

so, we had to quick go back to the house to find her new shoes, which ended up looking 100x better than the first ones anyway & then off to take pics with her friends before the big dance…
