Ah, high school. For some of us, it was the prime of our youth. For the rest of us, it was incredibly awkward and we couldn't wait to get out!

I have some great memories from high school, but I still remember being VERY excited to graduate and move on with my life. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do at that point in time, I just knew that I wanted to be considered an "adult." Now that I am an actual adult (because at 18 I was certainly NOT), I wish I could go back and enjoy the lack of responsibilities just a little bit longer.

We are officially into prom season right now, which means prom photos from all over the state of Iowa have been popping up in my newsfeed! It got me reminiscing about my high school prom back in 2009 at Lake Shore High School. I've actually been thinking about it a little more than usual, because I will be headed back to my hometown of St. Clair Shores, Michigan for my 10-year reunion next month. It's been 10 whole years since graduation, but sometimes it feels like it's been 50. Other days, it feels like I was there yesterday! I still have nightmares about forgetting to turn in my homework...

In honor of prom season, we thought it would be fun to show off some photos from our senior proms! Here are the best (and worst) pictures we could find:

Now it's your turn! Share your throwback prom photos with us in the comments below!
