Disclaimer: The fact that no date is pictured should not be taken as a sign that I did not have a date to either prom. I did, I just don't feel like I should share other people's prom photos without their express written permission and I've got about 10 minutes to hit publish here so I'm kind of working on a deadline.
Prom 1988 and Prom 1989.
I look like the cast from Wicked.
So, prom - who really cares right? Right. But I shared the above because in the discussion of the ridiculousness of the promposal, I mentioned that Joel proposed to me [PROPOSED] over lunch at the Ruby Tuesday's salad bar. I was wearing umbros and a t-shirt. There are no pictures because nobody walked around with cameras in 1995 taking endless photographs of their shoes or their lunch or their engagements (why yes, I do photograph everything now but it's with my phone and not with a camera and I may or may not have a serious problem - I digress #6845photosonmyphone). I couldn't even tell you the date he proposed. I think it was in August (because he used the money he'd made clerking in Clarksville all summer to buy my ring) and I'm pretty sure it was on a Saturday. He asked me to marry him. I said yes. We finished our lunch, walked around the mall feeling all engaged and special for a while then I went home and called everyone I knew (#landline). It's our story. And I love it.
