awkward prom photo.

This is my darling Jessie and me.

Doing an awkward prom photo pose.

I wore this outfit to BowlHer ’09.

I won a trip with this outfit to go to a Project Runway party in NYC that takes place this Thursday.

I hope I get to meet Malvin and have a really awkward conversation about how words haven’t even been invented for how amazing I am. And then we can stare blankly at each other and discuss how the fibers of the universe can come together to enrobe us in the feelings of life.

Awkward photo with Malvin Vien.

One more thing to check off my life list.

*fingers crossed*


  1. I can’t believe I’m the first to comment. THAT’S never happened before. Maybe everyone else is just speechless. That dress is just smashing.

    Oh, I’m all kinds of jealous over here over the PR fete. I’m positively green . . .

    @Megan@SortaCrunchy, Wanna borrow my dress? It will make you totally green. Literally.

  2. Oh have so much fun! I love that photo, too.

    @Adventures In Babywearing, I wish Jessie was my neighbor for more reasons than just this photo.

  3. You’re a rock star.

    @Lauren,Hardly. I’m going to be the one wearing a scrunchie in front of Tim Gunn, hardly rock star, unless we’re talking about Tawny Kitaen.

    More Tiffany than Tawny.

  4. I am obsessed with Project Runway… have fun on your trip!!

    Wait, is it just Melvin at this event?

    Is Heidi going to be there? Because if she was I think it is your duty as a Hoosier-transplant to kidnap her and bring her back to Indy. I’m just sayin.

    Wait, is that creepy of me?

  5. I’m crossing my fingers for you too! Malvin is too strange (and fabulous) for words. That would be a great picture!

    Love your bowling look.

    @Mim, Hence the reasons words have not been invented for him yet. Heh.

  6. But what are you going to wear to the partay? The green dress? Your Vivian Tam dress? Inquiring minds MUST KNOW!

    @Must Be Motherhood, Honestly I have to wait and see how bloated I am. Sad huh?

  7. I don’t want to be the one to tell you, but Malvin got voted off 2 weeks ago.

  8. I thought that really was an old prom photo at first. I vote that you should post some real awkward prom pictures!! (:

  9. you are unbelievably cute. have a super duper fun time. 😉

  10. o goodnight. Much as I am equal parts ROFL and stunned to find this on a Monday, you’re without a doubt the prettiest prom date I ever had! Junior year, Jeremy wore a tuxedo t-shirt and senior year I had to go with this exceptionally awkward boy who asked 8 weeks in advance. Sigh…I miss you!!

  11. Can you get me Heidi Klum’s phone number?

  12. Are you going to have a gathering of NY’ers that love you? Or is Project Runway consuming every moment of your visit? Let me know if you are free at all.

    (We met at BlogHer but I have since disappeared from the twittersphere….)

  13. Any chance I could borrow that dress? I have an upcoming college football bet with Heather and suspect I will lose convincingly. Rather take on the humiliation head on.

    Then I’ll need a convincing green theme drag name. Emerald…

    Have fun in NYC and take lots of pictures.

  14. I live in constant envy of you. Thanks.

  15. Grrr for closing comments on your last post. I wanted to say LOVE YOU after reading it. So there. I said it. Just on the wrong post.

    That dress never ceases to amaze me, btw. It’s . . . stunning.

  16. Um, can I be the awkward chaperone?! NYC in September sounds divine!

  17. LOVE Project Runway – me: green with Envy!!!

    PS – loved your previous post! Thanks for sharing it.

  18. tell malvin I found his egg…

  19. This is just too cool, we need to talk, irl if you know what I’m saying. Just got your message yesterday when I set up our voicemail. Good times.

  20. Awesome! Free trips are the best kind 🙂

  21. I love you. Just. Love. You.

  22. have so much fun! I love that photo, too.
