Prom, Part 1

An exciting thing has happened! I got asked to prom!!!!!!!!! I'm way way super excited! The boy that asked me is named Doug and he's in my ward. I don't like like him or anything, we're just friends. But I think it will be a lot of fun. I was hoping I would get asked but I heard about more and more people getting asked and I wasn't sure if it was going to happen. But last Thursday, I found a jar of pennies on our kitchen counter. My dad had seen it when he'd gone outside to go running. Unfortunately, NO ONE TOLD ME it was there, and I was rushing that morning, so I had no time to see who it was. Later, I read the poem which said I had to find his name from the letters on the pennies. Luckily, I had my dad who was smart enough to figure out how it all worked out. This is what the poem said, in case you can't read it in the picture:


If you haven't been asked, I would like just a chance.To send my request to join you at the dance.If we go together, it just makes "cents."Though waiting for an answer may be quite tense.To find out my name, the time it will "cost."For all the letters in my name have been lost.I may not last long, so send your reply.Please do not answer no, or else I may cry.


This is the jar of pennies that he gave me. I donated the pennies for a thing we were doing at school so I don't have them anymore. I wish I had taken a picture before I gave them away! :(

I answered him back by taking all of our leftover easter eggs and putting a paper in each one, with only one of them saying "yes" on the paper. My friends and I took the eggs and scattered them all over his lawn at like 11:30 at night. Now, I just have to worry about my dress, my hair, getting him a boutonnière, etc... I'm way excited though. Its this coming Saturday, April 19 and its at the Capitol.

My dress is going to be WAY pretty. Its fades from orange to pink and it has beadwork on it too! And you never be able to guess how much it was! $30!!!! You can never find prom dresses for that cheap, but luckily they had some at Ross that were way pretty and cheap. Unfortunately, it has spaghetti straps, so my wonderful mom said she would alter it for me (what would I do without her)! We found some material that is almost exactly the same. We figured it was worth it to fix it since the dress was so cheap, because it would be way more to buy an already modest one. We checked at one place, and the dresses were like $400! I can't wait to wear it when its all done.

P.S. By the way, this is only Part 1 of Prom, because I will have to post all my pictures from Saturday night, and it hasn't come yet. (obviously!) So keep checking to hear about Prom night!
