Dress Shopping

This Saturday is the annual Me & My Guy Dance in Girl Scouts. It is something that they have done for years and years, because when I was in the Girl Scouts (which was at least 15 years ago), they were doing the dance then, too. Although at that time, it was the Father & Daughter Dance, but since times have changed, it is now known as The Me & My Guy Dance.

Jenny is very excited about the dance, and Jaime is too. I think it will be a great opportunity for the two of them to spend some time together! Plus, it will be a lot of fun for Jenny and Jaime, too.

Yesterday, Jaime, Aiden, Jenny, and I all went shopping for a dress for her to wear for the dance. We picked out a few different ones, and then headed to the dressing rooms. Jenny chose her the ones she liked best, and I chose a few that I liked best. Once we got to the dressing rooms, and looked at the price tags on a few of them, we put several of them back without even trying them on. Haha. They were pretty, but also were over $100, and I don't see the point in spending so much for a dress she'll wear once. Lucky for us, a few that we picked were on clearance and were $100 dresses on sale for $20!

This was the first dress Jenny tried on, and it was also her favorite choice (before trying on any of the others). The picture has really bad quality since I took it with my phone, but the dress is actually a nice shade of purple with black polka-dots.

This is the second dress she tried on, which was also my favorite. It is a brighter teal color than this picture shows, and would look better if she weren't leaning against the wall in this picture. :)

We had a pretty hard time finding a dress that would be warm. We shopped at Macy's and they already had a lot of Spring dresses out, and there wasn't a lot of Winter stuff left. Plus, most of the Winter dresses looked too much like Christmas dresses. We bought her a sweater to go over the dress we ended up buying. She and I are going shoe shopping tomorrow, and the dance is Saturday night.

You'll have to check back here for the Me & My Guy Dance post to see which dress she wears! I hope you're all having a great week!
