11 years ago at The Oscars

Wow it's crazy to think that 11 years ago on March 23rd 1998 my Dad and I were walking down the red carpet....

I could of sworn I had pics in my scrapbook but I think I took them out to frame for my Dad for a present one year. I will have to snap a photo of it next time I am over at his house. You can still get an idea of what we looked like walking down the fancy red carpet with the photos I posted. I remember it like it was yesterday, we were running late due to the horrible traffic and our limo was probably #29 in the line 0f 100 and something waiting to pull up to the red carpet. We finally arrived and out we went, as soon as we stepped out of the limo flashes were going off and all the paparazzi were taking our pics. About a minute and 47 flashes later they realized we weren't famous. So in we shuffled as many stars were giving their red carpet interviews. It was so crazy to see everyone in real life. I was in awe, and was taking it all in moment by moment. Here are some pics from my BIG night....

Our tickets
All the presenters from that night (Notice 5th down on the right hand side, we sat right above her. I am telling you I have had some close encounters with Madge but still have yet to meet her. One day...)
The Winner is..... The Titanic
This was the dress I wore it was floor length, complete with a scarf and gloves of course :)... (like I said I will have to get the good pics from my dad)
This is the tux my dad wore(this pic was from another function but you get the idea)
