Prom Party at the Pond and Butterfly Dress Giveaway!

Posted on April 16th, 2013 in Stories




I like wearing dresses.

Bridesmaid dress shopping in college



Especially pretty dresses.

But after being married for seven years (in May!), I fear my dancing days are long behind me.


And that just won’t do.

So we’re having a prom at the Pond.


To celebrate the release of my new book (see below) and because I feel like looking pretty.  And as a party favor, I’m giving away copies of my book The Butterfly Dress! 



Want to come?  Then send me a picture of you in your prom dress or in a dress you wish was your prom dress OR e-mail me at and tell me about your favorite memory of prom.  We shall have a prom on April 30, so all entries are due before then.


Excuse me.  I need to go dress shopping.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new recipe and review tomorrow!

    So cute!

  6. Petty Witter Says:

    Oh you do look pretty, I especially love your prom dress.

    The wrong shape to wear a dress well, I think the last one I wore was probably my wedding dress.

  7. Channon Says:

    Oh fun!! You know I love to dress shop…

  8. joeinvegas Says:

    I’m sure you can still dance, have that guy take you out someplace, there should be dance halls in Texas.

  11. ROXTHEFOX Says:

    Love the dress and how fun the pictures are! You look great!


  12. Marjie Says:

    I’m sure Ben will take you dancing if you want him to.

    I have no pictures from my prom, because my idiot parents moved at least once a year, and one child was just too many for them to keep pictures of her. They “lost” them all along the way. But I think you saw my wedding picture, right?

    Or maybe I can find another dress picture; I’ll try to email it to you. I would love to have my own copy of The Butterfly Dress!

  13. Velva Says:

    What a great fun! A definite congratulations are in order for your new book. Very cool!


  14. Pietro Says:

    You wear so well these fine dresses!
    Congratulations on your new book!!!

  15. Michelle Says:

    Oh my goodness, that would be a blast from the past. My prom was almost 30 years ago! I’ll have to see if I can find those pictures…they’d probably be pretty fun to look at!

  16. Words Of Deliciousness Says:

    You look lovely in all your dresses. Sounds like a great give away.

  17. Juliana Says:

    Congratulations on your new book Miranda…I love the pictures of you in those nice dresses.
    Enjoy your week :)

  18. Barbara Says:

    Fun! I’d have to do some major digging to find a photo. But I can describe it. White fluff! Strapless, mid calf.

  19. Cafe Fashionista Says:

    You have an enviable collection of dresses, Duckie – love these! :)

  20. Tricia @ Saving room for dessert Says:

    You are so fun! I didn’t get to go to either prom :( and don’t look as pretty as you in a dress – but good luck to those that enter!

  21. Andrea Says:

    Soooo cute! I went to 4 proms as a high school student…I know, what was I doing. I guess I like wearing dresses too. Very cute idea! Andrea @ visiting from SITS.

  22. Reeni Says:

    Love this! I shall try and hunt down a picture of me in a dress. . . never went to any of my proms so this is nearly impossible.

  23. Cakelaw Says:

    I am a dress queen, but my formal (prom) dress was just awful, looking back – but it was the late 1980s.
