Carrie's Prom Pictures 2008...
She was really excited and said that she had a wonderful time.
Before the prom I took her to the park and took these photographs of her.
She looks all grown up.
It was quite a scramble to get her outfitted for this event.
Carrie had originally said that she wasn't going to go.
Nobody had asked her to be their date...
And she said that she didn't want to go with a group of girls.
But... about ten days before the prom, wouldn't you know it.
A boy asked her to be his date.
I had to work on the last week-end before the event.
Which meant that we didn't have ANY time for shopping, and we most definitely didn't have time to go and get lost in Austin looking for prom dresses. You need quite a bit of time to look for a prom dress, too. Especially if you are on a budget.
What were we going to do? Well, the Lord certainly does work in mysterious ways sometimes.
The only idea that I could come up with was to go to a resale shop to look for a dress. There just happened to be such a shop across the street from where I work.
I had made Carrie get up with me on Saturday morning so that we could start looking for an outfit as soon as I got off of work.
Carrie wasn't too excited about that idea...
Mostly because I have to be at work at 7:30 in the morning.
After work, we went across the street and...
A beautiful prom dress had just been brought in that morning.
And it was the ONLY prom dress in the shop.
It was just Carrie's size!
So the rest of the afternoon was spent looking for jewelry and shoes.
Not an easy task in and of itself I might add.
All of that stuff cost a WHOLE LOT more than her dress.
Oh yeah... I forgot to mention that we got the dress for $26!!
