My Daughter Met a Princess #PromPrincess


Every little girl dreams of being a princess and twirling around in a beautiful glistening gown without a care in the world.  Today, while having dinner at Qdoba {kids eat free Saturdays – yea!} my daughter about leaped out of her booster seat to point out a “princess” to me.  My heart melted into a gooey puddle.  It melted watching her face light up at the sight of, what in here eyes was, a real princess.  A princess that she had only dreamed about.  A princess that she has read about and pretends to be while dancing in the living room in her pjs.

Dancing in PJs

She doesn’t have a prince charming of her own to dance with and when mine is busy she’ll dance with her wooden duck.  {Technically, it’s my wooden duck decor but as much as she dances, pets, and feeds it it might as well be hers!}

Prince Charming in a Parking Lot #PromPrincess

She not only met a beautiful princess tonight but she also met “Prince Charming.”  This sweet couple was more than willing to take a picture with my little princess and it meant the world to her.  I know she won’t soon forget it!

{By the way, did you notice how clear the prom pictures were compared to the one in my living room.  That’s the difference a phone with 20 megapixels will make.  I love my Nokia Lumia Icon that Verizon fave me! #VZWLife}

  3. that’s so cute. my niece was in a play a few weeks back, when she came out to see us all the really little girls were in awe saying “She’s a princess”. My niece stopped to take pictures with them. I swear she’s headed to disney one day

  4. How very sweet. What a great couple to stop and take pictures with her.

  5. Aimee Fauci says

    ha ha .. that is super cute and super awesome of the prince and princesses to play along

  6. redheadbabymama says

    I was stopped in an Italian restaurant by a 6 year old that thought I was Cinderella (to her defense, I was wearing a HUGE blue gown, white gloves, a black necklace and a tiara). What can I say, I’m a costume designer!

  7. Sara P. says

    LOVE IT! I cam imagine most princess-obsessed kiddos would LOVE seeing ladies & gentlemen in their prom gear!

  8. Rachael Ebner says

    Awww, those are cute pics! Thanks for sharing!

  9. I don’t know why I love this post more…so cute

  10. This is such a sweet idea! A little girl recently said to her mom, “I want to look like her when I grow up.” It was so touching. I bet that those dressed up for prom feel happy when they are called princesses and princes too.

    • Keikilani Jackson says

      The couple did look pretty happy to me too to be called a prince and princess! How sweet.

  11. We accidentally went to a restaurant during prom night a few years ago. My daughters went CRAZY with all the girls dressed up!

  71. Joanna Sormunen says

    I remember how fascinated my little niece was with my cousins marriage. She was their flower girl and she just couldn’t keep her eyes away from his bride. It was so cute, she called her real princess for years after wards. Another great place to meet real princesses and princes, the weddings 🙂

  72. Haha! What a great idea!

  73. Camesha says

    That is awesome and smart! It’s great to make a princess into an everyday person. They don’t just live in fairy tales. 🙂

  75. carmenscouponblog says

  76. Awwww! How sweet of them to take photos with her and they were looking good. Thanks for seeing the beauty in those who may not look like you. 🙂
