flashback... grad '97

Yeah! Lent is over! I can play Flashback again!!

And this year, we're traveling back to '97. To the year that Peter and I graduated from high school. Yes, we went together. We did all the typical grad type things (we don't call it "prom" here it Canada... at least not where we lived): Peter bought me a corsage, we drove in a limo with friends, he wore a three piece suit and  a tie (that we still have in the back of our closet somewhere!) and me? Well I wore a flapper dress. A custom made flapper dress that my mom and a friend sewed for me out of yards and yards of green fringe.

It was fabulous.

And I wore a headband with a giant faux gemstone and a green plume feather.

I was fabulous.

What a lucky guy that Peter was! Who wouldn't want to go to grad with a vision in green fringe??

And tellyouwhat, all those girls in their hundreds of dollars worth of fluff and poof and fancy fabrics HAD NOTHING ON ME AND MY FRINGE on the dance floor. Look at it move!! (And look at how thin my arms were! And how big my chin looks!? I promise it doesn't look like that in real life!)
