Valentine's Princess

Hannah was chosen by her peers as a nominee for her school's Valentine's Day Dance Queen. Very exciting. She could make posters, we made one, & pass out treats.

I had the poster board on hand and it just happened to look valentine'sy (new word). In my memory bank I could remember a picture I took of her one Christmas morning with her new crown & thought how sweet that picture would be on her poster.

We went dress shopping & we got lucky at the first store. She found a cute red dress on the sale rack for $12. Yes, 12 DOLLARS. And when we were checking out the cashier asked if we had a coupon, we didn't, but he did so we got an addtional 20% off. Jackpot!!!! We found shoes for $20. She had a pretty little heart necklace her MeMe gave her so I got out of this a lot cheaper than I thought I would, well, until she couldn't find the shoes 10 minutes before we had to leave for her to have her hair done for the dance, I'll get to that in a minute.

Some pictures I took during the dance.

This is Cody. His dad went to school with Brent at Lindsay. And now their kids are going to school together in Madill. Fun!

Hannah didn't win but like they always say, it was a honor just to be nominated :) She had a ball so that is all that matters.

So back to the shoes. I had made an appointment to have her hair done. Her hair is thick & hard to keep a curl so I knew it would be more fun, for the both of us, just to have it done. It was worth every penny. Anyway, 10 minutes before we had to leave to get to her appointment (that they were working her in mind you) she couldn't find her shoes. Anywhere. And she didn't have any other shoes that would work. I'll admit it, I was beyond pissed. So I told her she would have to wear black flip flops if we couldn't find a pair in town (we had 2 choices, Walmart or another little department store in our little town). After her hair appointment we didn't have much time to look for anything because she still had to get ready. Department store nada. Fingers crossed as we walked into Walmart & they had some for $10 that worked out perfectly. Phew! Oh, & she found the first pair on Sunday after the dance. Where were they? In the bottom of clothes hamper. I'm still trying to figure that one out.
