Dress and Jewelry from Forever 21... 30 dollars
Shoes and Bra from Target... 36 dollars
Dinner at the Olive Garden... 42 dollars
Happy teenage daughter... priceless!

Sis found this dress in Forever 21, which was the first store we went to. She loves it, and it was 20 bucks! I don't think many moms get away with spending 20 dollars on a prom dress! It totally fits her personality. She's definitely not your frou-frou, glittery, taffeta type girl.

We had a great time and lots of laughs and made it home before the snow (yes, more!) started falling in earnest. I had envisioned our prom dress shopping trip to be a marathon of blood, sweat, tears and maybe even a few swear words, but it was quick easy and joyful! What a blessing!

You're one awesome mom! Boy, times have changed. I remember when prom dresses were literally long formals!

She's adorable.
