Two posts in one day, but what's a grandma to do?

Tonight is homecoming. 
Emily's dress is pretty cool.
I asked to see her shoes.
3" heels.


The theme is masquerade.
She has a mask from Aunt Beth's stash.
A friend made the duct tape boutineer.


Her expert hair braider.


Her very nice guy.
For the first time in four years Scott is driving her to the dance.
His mother is so happy.


And she rocks those three inch heels.

  4. Good for her with the 3 inch heels :) Such a pretty young woman and they make a great looking couple!! I'm thinking you are pretty confident about Scott and his driving ability; I'm not sure you would entrust her to any "normal" teen driver :)

    I hope they have a delightful time!

    You have every right to boast this one Joanne!!! What 'handsome couple' as the saying is... If Scott is as placid as his expression, she's got a good 'un ! YAM xx

    1. They're best friends and both seem well grounded. Scott passed my boyfriend test two years ago, when his mother would pick Emily up for an event, I would bring her home and Scott drove alone. By this year both had passed my "maturity" tests, so she went with Scott. In his mother's car.

  22. It is so nice to see the responsible young lady Emily is becoming. She has earned your trust. Both of you worked so hard on it and nice to see it paying off. Love the 3 inch heels. Oh, to be young again. Know you won't sleep until she is back home and will be anxious to hear more about their wonderful evening. Love to both of you.
