Thirteen years ago tonight, Philip and I went on our first date! A blind date that is! I was a freshman in high school and Philip was a senior. We went to schools across town, but were set up by a mutual friend. We ate at Outback Steakhouse and went to see the movie Simply Irresistible. In my first post, I talked about how natural our first date was and how we talked and talked like we had known each other forever! We started dating and have been together ever since!!
In honor of our 13 year anniversary (almost half of my life!), I thought some high school dance pictures would be a funny little blast from the past! The first dance we attended together was Philip's Valdosta High School Prom in 1999, but we both refused to share that one. :) So we will start with a Lowndes High School Homecoming Dance picture from 1999. (Scary that this one was better than the Prom picture...)
Next is the picture from the Lowndes High School Plowboy Dance from 2000. The boy and girl dress alike and the dance is always a country theme. Ha! Ha! Aren't we cute. :)
I think this picture is from the Lowndes High School 2001 Homecoming Dance. Don't you love the bangs!
And here is a picture from my senior Prom in 2002.
We had a lot of fun reminiscing while looking at these old photos. There were many more (Since we dated through my entire high school, I think we went to about 20 dances together!)...but these are the only ones you get to see for now... We also went to dinner to celebrate tonight and used our Longhorn gift card!
Definitely glad that God gave me this man to share my life with and truly thankful that he allowed us to start so early in our lives spending time together! I love my Philip Melvin Brown!
