Daughter was Homecoming Princess for the Sophomore Class at her college. We went to the basketball game on Friday night to see the "coronation"...
Below, she is with the Sophomore Class "prince".... Here she is with some of her friends....
And here she is with her boyfriend...
Last week we had to decide what she would wear. We thought that we could cut off the bottom of a formal dress that she already had, and turn it into a cocktail length dress. I went up to her college with sewing machine, sewing notions and supplies, trims, iron, etc. so I could work on the dress while I was up there. When I was about halfway there, I realized that I forgot to bring the dress that we were supposed to work on! Duh.... So I stopped at Target and just pulled one of everything off the racks and took $400 worth of dresses with me. She tried everything on, chose one, and then I had to return everything else on the way back home! Oh well, I think she ended up with a nicer dress, very classic that she can wear again many times. And it was on sale- so everything worked out OK. But I honestly couldn't believe that I forgot to take the dress- well, actually I CAN believe it- after all, I've done dumber things in my life!

Today I get to paint, something I don't get a chance to do much of anymore, but I have a good project to work on, so I am excited! Have a creative Monday.....


  1. Your precious daughter is beautiful! I was laughing so hard at you forgetting the dress! We are kindred spirits friend!

  2. Sounds like a normal day in our lives (forgetting the dress) That is sooo me!

    Your daughter is just BEATIFUL!

  3. Your Daughter looks lovely! I had to laugh at you leaving the dress sounds like something I would do!

  4. Your daughter looks beautiful. I can see me forgetting the dress.

  5. She is beautiful!
    And so happy, we can read it in her face!
    Well you know some times our minds have reasons that we don't understand. ;)
    I think that you want a new dress to your daughter, that she may shine like a princess that she is. It's what all mothers want.:)

  6. This reminds me of my friend who went on a quilting retreat last month and forgot to take her sewing machine. She lived an hour and a half from the retreat and had to go back home to get her machine or the weekend would have been a total loss. Your daughter looked just lovely. :-)
