Azure/Mustang PROM!

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Yes, it's Prom season, and my wonderful BLC team, Azure Destinations, is hosting our very own prom! Our welcome guests are the Midnight Mustangs. The girls and guys of the Mustang team all seem to be as fun and excited as us!

We are having so much fun! We are sharing "healthy" (at least healthIER) cocktail recipes (a no-no for proms...I was a 17-yr-old prude and wouldn't IMAGINE imbibing...then I went to college....), healthy party food recipes (I wasn't much help there...as a plain eater I am perfectly happy with raw veggies and NO dip EVER!), and awesome GOYBAD videos. Most are from the disco era, when I was a kid, but I remember them well and am enjoying them greatly, especially the Abba videos...can't EVER get enough Abba!!

We are also encouraged to post our ideal prom outfits. I say "outfits" because there are two guys on the Mustang team...I hope they don't refrain from posing pics! I know the standard guy uniform at prom is a tux, but I hope these guys take this as an opportunity to share their ideal clothing choices, formal or informal.

I'm personally not a fashion diva. I never know what's "in" or "trendy". I found a dress I like online. I think it's pretty, but I'd personally add at least spaghetti straps. Even when I was thin I had a bigger chest, and support was always a concern! Lol! Here it is:

As beautiful as I think this dress is, I STILL love MY prom dress. Maybe it's because it's one of the only times I remember feeling thin, and THE only time I really felt pretty. I'm going against my past decision of posting any pics of me here until I feel comfy in my own skin because I think I looked cute. You'll have to get past the early 90's hair/perm and poofy sleeves! It WAS 1991!! Lol! I cropped my little sister out, just in case she's secretly on Spark...
Yep...at 17 I actually had collarbones! Go figure! Lol!!

So...great reminiscing, and I'm so glad I found prom pics...great inspiration! Really looking at a thin me, knowing I was THERE at one time makes me feel hopeful that I can get there again!

Happy Prom, Azure and Mustangs!

    You've got a Beautiful! pic from your youth; i have to admit i'm not very big on fashion much these days, so i've had some trouble finding a dress i like...
    The best thing is what you've said yourself: you CAN get 'there' again! We can all help each other to be whatever we want to be!!!

    Wow, Nikki - look at YOU!!!! What a gorgeous photo and what a beautiful choice for "today's" prom challenge. And I'm guessing you're still just as beautiful - your humor and energy comes through via your smile!

    How cute you looked in your prom dress and what a cute dress you picked out for your dress now I picked out a short one figured I would trip over a long one and hey you only live once and I'm old so this was my once-lol. I think you are beautiful and should keep that picture out if that's what inspires you I know I would if I had looked that good back in high school. I'll post one of me back in high school and then you can see-lol

    How pretty - the gloves are beautiful. Think you could find a pair in purple to go with your "new" dress!?

    Stunning first dress. I also had big 80's hair for my Matric Farewell (Prom), will post a pic, when I find one to scan in.

    I love both your dresses. Your prom picture shows you that there is a "thin Nikki" in there and you are working to find her. emoticon Lovely pic.

    I face the same dilemma.

    How I wasted those golden years! All we can do is to make up for it now. Living life to the full, now, not waiting until we're thin again. Those golden years are not going to return again, so we have to make new ones!

    I really was ok-looking once upon a time. What the he(double hockey sticks) did I do to myself?? How do you stop kicking yourself for so many years wasted, not only In looks, but mostly in health?
    On one hand, I look at the past "me" and feel hopeful. On the other, I feel so angry at myself. Does anyone else face this dilemma??
