Eat your heart out John Hughes!

Guess what I get to do tomorrow afternoon?  I’m going shopping!  But not just regular, run of the mill, shopping.  I’m going shopping for a PROM DRESS!  Yep, you read that right.  Tobi-Dawne gets a prom dress!

Okay maybe it’s a little dorky that at 34 I’m this excited for Prom, but I don’t care.  I’m super psyched about it!  We never had a prom.

I remember always watching all those great teen angst flicks of the 80’s…  They all had a prom.  They’d dress up and have the best time ever.  All sorts of chaos and pain, and then VOILA!  Prom makes it all better.  And hey!  Even in the movies where prom didn’t make it better, at least it made everything LOOK better.

Pretty in Pink, at the prom

So I’m willing to accept that I’m a bit of a dork, Prom is going to be awesome.  No.  It’s going to be EPIC!  Saskatchewan’s first every PINK PROM!  And I get to be a part of it all.  That is totally legend – wait for it – dary.  That’s right.  Legendary.  I said it.

I’m gonna look Pretty at the Pink Prom – oh yeah!  I went THERE.  😉
