  1. Melinda says

    My junior Prom I was crowned the Prom Queen one of my favorite special events in my high school experience……

  2. Kathleen says

    My best memories are getting ready, taking pictures with all my friends and dancing the night away!

    Shared on FB and tweeted too!

  3. Cassie says

    My best memory from prom night was when I got to dance the night away with my longtime crush! It was very special and a memory I’ll never forget.
    I would love to go to this Mom Prom bc my friends and I have talked about creating such a thing for our friends, so this is beyond incredible!

  4. says

    My mother made a lovely tulip-shaped sheath for me to wear to prom (a pretty significant departure from the cupcake-style dresses everyone was wearing in 1984) and the front of the dress was simply two pieces of the dress that overlapped. As I got out of the car at the hotel where the prom was happening, a gust of wind grabbed the top layer of fabric and flung it… exposing my lovely half-slip and midsection. It was a sign of things to come… not my favorite night. :)

  5. Kristina says

    I went to prom at my small high school…home of the Hillbillies! Some of my favorite memories were getting together with friends after prom for the midnight movies in fort smith and breakfast after. Fun times! I think I have only been to a midnight once since and zero since kids….have learned to try to sleep when there’s actually a chance to sleep! Kristina

  6. kim says

    Hanging out with friends and group pictures. I never had the over the top expensive dresses but always had a good time!

  7. says

    I did not go to our high school prom, it was not very well organized. Thankfully, I got to dress up each year for my high school sororities “Lead-Out”, yes, a very Mississippi debutante ball thing. I would LOVE to come up to NW Arkansas for prom, get out of my yoga pants into something dazzling, and bring some friends, yes ma’am, count me in!

  8. Sodi says

    I am SO EXCITED about this!!! I attended a private school, we were not allowed to dance; i never experienced a ” Prom Night “. ;) tears.

  9. says

    I attended a private school, we were not allowed a dance. I never got to experience a “Prom”. A dinner with our parents was nice. But, I wanna dance!!! There IS a time to DANCE under HEAVEN!!! (: thankyou!!!

  10. Debra says

    I can’t of one major item that was purchased. But I do love a good deal and that is what I will be searching for. <3

  11. Melody Logan says

    I moved in the middle of my senior year…:( so I didn’t go to prom. I would LOVE to go and hang out with some of my girlfriends who need a nice girls night out as well!
    Being a SAHM gets very lonely and getting to go out with other moms to play sounds like a blast! :)

  12. Cassie W says

    My best memory from prom would have to be that I went with a friend, but I got to dance the night away with my longtime crush. It was so special and a memory that always makes me smile.
    I would love to go to this prom because my friends have talked about coordinating one forever so this is amazing! I would love to surprise them with tickets! We are all moms, so we’d have a blast!

  13. says

    I graduated early so I never got to go to my senior prom. I’m looking forward to connecting with girlfriends I don’t get to see very often.

  14. Meagan says

    I was home schooled so I never got a chance to go to a prom. I bought a really pretty dress to go with my boyfriend and then we broke up so I never got a chance to wear it… ten years later and it’s hanging in my closet still in the bag.

  15. says

    I went to all three proms with my high school sweetheart whom I will be sharing our 12 year marriage anniversary in March. We had a blast dancing with all of our friends. I already have my girls picked out to take when we win!! I’ll be posting your contest on Twitter and Facebook too. Thanks!

  16. Angie Calix says

    I am so looking forward to getting dressed up and having a great night of dancing with my BFFs!!

  17. Michelle says

    I didnt go to prom in CA my friends and I chose to hang out together. My oldest son is going to his Jr Prom this year :-) Why would going to Mom Prom be so important? Dec 22, 2010 at the age of 42 I had a stroke, I was paralyzed on my left side. 2 years later I am walking, still in therapy trying to be “normal” I found out who my “REAL” friends are and this would be the best gift to show them how much I appreciated them helping me not only through my stroke but some of the darkest days of my life! Friendship is precious!!! And with my second chance at life this Prom is just one more opportunity for me to participate in something I missed out on the first time.

  18. Valerie Holman says

    My 1st born is turning One Year Old in March and this momma has had girls time since before I was pregnant! It’s time to get out of the house, make myself feel pretty, and dance w/ the girls:)

  19. Debbie Garrison says

    I never got to go to a prom. My parents didn’t allow me to date until I turned 18, which was two months after I graduated. I would love to spend a fun evening with my friends!

  20. Crystal says

    Having four boys I never get to do girly things anymore. It would be nice to dress up and have an evening out with the girls.

  21. Mandy Bramall says

    My favorite prom memory was my Junior prom, 4 of my good friends and I all went together, one of whom was a paraplegic from a car accident that happened earlier that year. We had the MOST fun dancing and laughing!! I believe we had more fun than we would have had we had dates!

  22. Amanda Robb says

    I’m a mom of three and would LOVE a big girl’s night out! I moved around a lot and was in three different high schools. By the time Prom came around I was still new and in my 3rd high school, so I didn’t go to prom. It’d be fun to be able to have a re-do and go now!!
    Thanks for this giveaway and how fun!

  23. Brittney says

    Well my best friend and I went together (no boys) and we had a blast. However, we were sooooooooooooooooo disappointed because every stayed out all night, except us. Our moms were so nice and extended our curfew to midnight instead of the usual 11 p.m. HA! We thought we had the worst life ever. LOL!

  24. Andrea Long says

    I never got to attend my high school prom, and would love to share in the excitement of the process of makeup, hair, and dress!

  25. Brittnie says

    What would be more fun than a night with girlfriends with dancing, food and drinks!! Awesome idea!!!

  26. Peggy Hunter says

    I never attended my high school proms. I would love to have that kind of experience with my best friend. I am so looking forward to this event.

  27. Wendy Pruitt says

    My favorite memory is for my senior prom I went to a salon and had my first fancy “up do” done. I felt so pretty walking in with my hair all done up. A Mom prom sounds fun and love that it is for a good cause!

  28. Diane says

    Unfortunetly I did not get to go to my prom in high school so this would be so much fun! I would love to spend the evening with my daughter and daughter’s in law!

  29. Emily K. says

    A FUN night out with the girls is just what I need!! Pick Me!!

    Favorite memories of prom would be the dress with the puffy sleeves and BIG hair! :)

  30. jennifer vass says

    Looking forward to having a great time with my girlfriends without the guys and kids!! Whoo Hoo!

  31. Kristin Faught says

    My favorite memory of my senior prom was we had a flat tire before prom. We walked out of the house to see it and just laughed. It was our kinda luck but very memorable! A FUN night out with my girls is what I need! :-)

  32. Heidi says

    Most of my prom night memories are best forgotten! Would love to make some new memories with great friends!

  33. Jennifer S. says

    I never had a prom night, i was home schooled and then had to get my G.E.D.
    So i never had one, though it always sounded fun. Would love the chance to hang out with my friends.

  34. Christy Tucker says

    I went to the prom, my date was a friend who was a whole foot taller than me-dancing was awkward, there were two slow dances the whole night, the live band was awful and, his eyes were closed in the pictures. Mom prom sounds like so much fun!

  35. Cammi Hevener says

    I would love to attend a prom with my best girl friend , since we met in college and never attended a prom together! Would be so fun to dress up and go out!!

  36. Kaelan Sam says

    I didn’t get to go to prom because I became a mom at a young age. I love my son and having him was worth way more then a prom. However I’m really looking forward to attending the mom prom! :-)

  37. Meagan Blackburn says

    I had a great prom….the first time! My second prom was short lived because it was an alternative prom because I couldn’t take my boyfriend as he wasn’t in school! Need a redo and a awesome girls night out!!!

  38. Barbara DeMarais says

    Never had a prom night–went to a Christian high school which didn’t have one. We had a banquet instead with everything a prom has except the music and dancing! lol Was still exciting to dress up and wear a corsage and see who came with whom. Why didn’t I smile for that picture?….

  39. Katherine Morton says

    The best part of my prom was hanging out with all my friends when it was all said and done. It was a great night and we had lots of fun.

  40. Ginger says

    I loved seeing my friends all dressed up. We were a bunch of tomboys, so we laughed until we cried at how funny we all felt dressed like princesses!

  41. Tricia says

    The best thing about my prom was going with a guy friend! There was NO jealousy or expectations that go along with boyfriends! (And my junior prom just SO happened to be on my birthday!) BONUS!!!

  42. Brandi says

    This would be a perfect girls night out! Looking forward to getting out for the night with some great friends!

  43. Rosemary Rincon says

    My favorite memory is renting a limo and posing with girlfriends before Prom! It was always the tradition to take all the pictures at my house before Prom. My husband went to my senior Prom with me which is pretty cool!

  44. Autumn says

    My date stood me up for my senior prom. :( Fast forward 15 years and the invention of Facebook later and we reconnected and are now married with two kids!:)

  45. Erica m. says

    My senior prom was the best prom ever! My best friend and I went together because we were both dating older guys who didn’t want to go to prom. We had the best time just us girls. We didn’t have to worry about guys or anything, we just enjoyed prom!

  46. Angie O. says

    We had a huge group get together for pics before dinner. So much fun seeing everyone glammed up in the 90s! My girls and I need a girls night to re-live the awesomeness that we’ve never lost! LOL!

  47. Brandie Wooten says

    My best friend and I went and bought matching dresses and got all dressed up only for my date to call and say he had been called in to work. (Yea right!) my best friend was so amazon that she stayed home with me and took me out to dinner instead. This would be awesome to make up for my lost night!!!

  48. Lindsey Kendrick says

    Wow – this sounds like a ton of fun and is actually way more appealing to me than prom in high school was (although I loved that and my date for prom is my husband now)! :)

    Awesome giveaway and awesome idea NWAMotherlode!

  49. Mandy says

    I always enjoyed prom! I love the anticipation and excitement it brings! I’m most excited about spending some quality time with my favorite girls, pretending we don’t smell like spit-up or dirty diapers, pretending we always ride around in limos and sequins, and KNOWING that we deserve a great evening to benefit a wonderful charity! I can’t wait!

  50. says

    My prom was just terrible… I never got the Prom pics because my “date” held them hostage unless I’d go out with him. :D I think I might should write a prom blog post and promote this there!!!!!

  51. Brandy says

    Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend my prom. I’ve always acted like it wasn’t a big deal but in truth, it was. This event sounds like so much fun!

  52. Kimberly Burlison Cook says

    My oldest was born the morning of my senior prom..needless to say..I missed it…being a mom with all boys I have never had the chance to “relive” my prom with dress shopping and such…3 1/2 yrs ago my son became totally disabled and now confined to a wheelchair..I quit my job to be able to provide the care he needs…and this event is just what I need! What a great way to get me out and about with adults! And females! Yeah! I am so excited and looking forward to it!

  53. Brianna Epple says

    I never got to go to my proms so this would be an awesome experience! Plus I love getting all dolled up!

  54. Krystal says

    We never had prom at my school, but I would love the chance to feel like a princess (and have a fun break w/the girls away from the kiddos)!!

  55. Jeffie T says

    Favorite memory from prom – dressing shopping beforehand with my best friend. We both found our dresses pretty quickly, then spent the rest of the day trying on the most horrid and ridiculous dresses we could find.

  56. Amy W says

    I loved getting my hair and make-up done for prom and getting all dressed up! I think Mom Prom will be a blast!

  57. Shonda Zimmerman says

    Just getting our hair and nails done was fun. The we got to dress up. After the prom we went to a teen club and danced some more!! We had a blast.

  58. Mindi Littleton says

    My favorite time at the prom was dancing with m friends. I hope I get a moms night out this year for free. That’d be awesome and so much fun.

  59. Beth Burner says

    A favorite prom memory of mine is from my Senior Prom in 1989. I wanted to go all out on my dress so my mom took me to the fabric store to pick out a pattern and fabric. I picked a satin and tulle wedding dress pattern that had 31 yards of tulle. I picked peach for the color. I looked like orange sherbet! But I loved it back then. I wore two crinolines under it and I had to crawl in and out of the car rode in. I loved that dress!

  60. Rachael davenport says

    Prom was so fun with my closest friends and its often one of those memories we bring up! How amazing would it be to relive such an amazing day and do it minus the prom date drama you had in high school!

  61. Virginia says

    Getting to have a night out with just girls to let go & have fun!! I’m in!! I won’t worry like I did in high school about anything except to have a great time!

  62. says

    My junior and senior proms were a blast! The best thing about them was dressing up and dancing to the song “Shout” was something that I won’t forget!

  63. says

    I had transferred schools a couple of times in high school and was home bound my senior year due to an organ transplant, so I didn’t know anyone by the time prom rolled around.

    But I was DETERMINED, now that I had the energy, to dress up and go to my senior prom even though I had to go stag. It was kinda sad, actually. Dressing up was the best part.

    The Mom’s Prom is sure to be a better experience.

  64. Stephanie Schaefer says

    I would love to win this and take my MOM with me and a bunch of other desrving Mothers I know. Looks totally AMAZING!!
