Fro Me to You—May Pole

The Place: Judson College in Marion, AL

Each year in the Spring, the College plays host to an Alumnae reunion day, simply called J-Day.

Many of the women, who have passed through the halls of Judson, return to the campus to visit friends and reminisce about their days at Judson.

And for me, this weekend I will be one of those alumna who will make the trek back to Mother Judson (ok so it’s an hour a way). I will reunite with some of my oldest and dearest friends for a weekend of F-U-N.

But my visit will certainly not be without a flood of memories from my 4 years at Judson.

For this week’s Sincerely Fro Me to You carnival, I am going to share with you just one of them.

These photos were taken at the J-Day during my Freshman year. A traditional part of the reunion day was the May Pole “dance”.

Now, just for the record, I wanted NO part of this. I didn’t want to put on some fairy looking dress, and I certainly didn’t want to “dance” around a pole. (Ahem, I guess it could be worse).

Here’s me and my peeps from 3rd Floor Kirtley Dorm (me, bottom right):


Me and one of favorite Judson friends, Natasha:


The photo I wanted to avoid. Me barefoot, wearing a fairy dress, while skipping around a May Pole:

Just to be able to say you were a 'pole dancer' with a straight face has to make this all worth while.

Oh, that is some craziness of a tradition! Don't you make a cute fairy. :)

I did not know you could pole dance...and in that dress!! Looks like great times and memories.:)

Just think about how that one simple decision to humble yourself and put on a fairy dress has given so many of us hours and hours of enjoyment over the years.

So thanks, Cubby. Thanks for the memories.

And I can't wait to see you TOMORROW!!!!!!

Very nymph like. I think you could start a new trend with that hem line :)

(notice how I avoided any comment about pole dancing? It took an act of pure will power not to crack a joke like that. But I didn't because you were barefoot. Now if you had been wearing acrylic platforms? All bets would be off)

Deanna said...

So did they have a closet of those dresses? That just cracks me up!

Amanda said...

so cute! Love the dress!

Maren said...

AHH! Not everyone can admit they were a pole dancer :)!

Suz Broughton said...

You look like you had fun there! Have a great time.

Michelle@lifeinawhirlwind said...

I said it this weekend but this blog makes me want to repeat it - The Maypole Dance made me proud to be a "big girl" since I couldn't fit into the fairy dress and was therefore excused from participating in the ritual. :-)
