We have a winner!

I knew I could count on Daisy Jo!

"I say #3, although I'm not 100% certain. I'm waffling with the Junior League presidency."

Seriously people? You think I was in a BEAUTY PAGEANT? I'm 5'3" tall for crying out loud! Her waffling on the Junior League presidency made me chuckle. As I drink and swear like a sailor it hardly makes me Junior League material now does it? HOWEVER I was an active member for fifteen years and did, in fact, serve as president.

AAAAnyway, were any of you secretly cringing at the thought that perhaps Precious Youngest had her sites set on the Pageant circuit? Or worse, that I was sitting here nodding my head saying "Yes, EXCELLENT idea!" and "You look so PRETTY in sequins!" Because she's not and I'm not. I have been spending a lot of time looking at sparkly dresses though. More specifically ball gowns.

Yes, I've been extra busy because my daughter is going to be a Debutant. Following in her sister's footsteps, Precious Youngest will take her father's arm, courtesy deeply, and be presented at my Junior League's Ball later this year.

So please feel free to talk among yourselves. Question my family's participation in this archaic rite of passage. And if I'm out of pocket on occasion? It may be because I'm contemplating tiara styles.

Dang. I'm going to go reread that list now.

I have a friend that was into Junior League. I decided not to get more involved after having to wear all white to a croquet tournament.

The rummage sale and community service rocked though.

My Dad still has the picture of us from my debut on his desk and still talks about it like it was yesterday. Anyone who'd put down the tradition has never seen that look in a father's eyes. Hope your daughter and her father have a perfect night! Have you read The Ex-Debutant? Hilarious.

OMG, I may look as though I'm staring down my nose at you disdainfully, but really I'm just trying to picture what I, I mean PUNKIN, would look like in a white ball gown. And a tiara. Squee!

Daisy said...

Woowoo...I'm the winner!!

Can your daughters give me curtsey lessons?

new diva said...

Ah well, you can't win them all. You do make me laugh though, as aside from the whole official competition thing, the difference between a pageant and a debutante ball would be?...No worries as a past participant in said pageant activity I am certainly NOT throwing stones! Happy shopping!

I'm not a Debutante I just want the dress.

Melissa - Trust me I'm still Fannie from the block.

Jenn - Say what you will, we raise alot of money and help a lot of folks.

Poppet - AMEN! We still tear up!

Madame Queen - She'd be darling!

Daisy - When you come to visit we'll fit that in.

New Diva - My bad, I'm the LAST person to be casting stones!

Tootsie - I do love a ball gown.
