Homecoming . . . The Dance!

The next big event after the homecoming football game was . . .
you guessed it - 
the Homecoming dance!

Homecoming was really early this year due to football scheduling and gym
availability which, of course impacted dress availability!!
Locating an appropriate dress that met the requirements was tricky!
Yes, there are requirements.  
Dresses cannot be too short or too revealing. No cut-outs allowed, no short skirts, no slits!
The length determination is measured by a convoluted credit card measuring formula!
Seriously!! :)
Anywhoooo -- we had a tough time finding a dress for Miss M.
We located an absolutely adorable dress on Macy'!
However, when it arrived, she deemed it " meh, just ok."
The search was back on!
Luckily, we found another appropriate dress and bonus --- it was on sale!

Maddy went with some friends from elementary/middle school.  Really, there is no need to date as freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors --
am I right?  Dating can wait for college!
These girls have been friends all through elementary school.
Sweetest girls ever!

Our Penny Bridge in our neighborhood -- in the old days,
 the trolley charged a penny to go over the bridge!
The bridge was rebuilt a few years ago.

The girls had a fun time though said the gym was
super hot!

Homecoming No. 1 is in the books!

I simply can't believe that Maddy is old enough to go to Homecoming. Don't blink! Her dress was darling and I love her shoes even more! Great job!

P.S. I agree - no dating in high school!

This is by far one of the best places to hang with friends, have great drinks (amazing beer selection), eat some great food, including the great lunch I had at home studios NYC here. Prices are very reasonable and the pizza was awesome.
