Prom Season

I officially hate prom season and can't wait for it to be over. I have had enough of the whiney prom girls that think their prom is going to be the most important day of their lives and the moms that want to barter with 500 dollar dresses!!! We are not Mexico, we don't barter! Not to mention that least week was Spring Break out here and a lot of employees were gone so I worked 9 days straight had a day off and then worked 8 days straight. Yuck! At least the paycheck will be be nice. Also, I am not sure when prom dresses became so scandalous. The worst part of it is the moms that are encouraging their daughters to dress like this, and telling me that they want to order a smaller size because their daughter is going to lose weight. Pressure much? Why are these moms teaching their daughters at such a young age that you need to be skinny to succeed. Enough of my ranting though. I though that I would share some pictures of some popular styles this year and you can get a glimpse into my little prom world.

First we have some serious slits...

Then on to the open backs...

and then the open sides that go down way too far...

This one was our best seller this year...not as bad as the rest

All in all, I have to say Yikes!!! I did get a break from it all by going to Chicago to help Kim and Chris move in. It was a nice break from work and a lot of fun to see them.

The River

Last week Jonathan and I decided to go for a walk, since it was finally warm enough to be outside longer than two seconds. We are just a couple blocks away from the river and really enjoy walking over there. Since we have had such a crazy winter, there were these huge ice chunks floating around. They were really awesome. There is a mini little water fall, so we were watching the ice chunks get destroyed. Not a very exciting story, but we had fun and it was nice to get out for a bit. Here are some pics from the walk.

So I know that I am way behind the curve on this one, but I still thought that it would be fun. I have actually had the images for this blog on my desktop for a week or two and am just finally getting to it and Cory tagged me like 3 weeks ago. Lazy much...I think so.
