Ok...so baby bopeep (getting married June 30), at the sake of being redundant, wore a Laker's Ensemble to her first day of school...and broke her arm on the monkey bars...
... it stands to reason that I am having a bit of a hard time trying to find a mother of the bride dress...because somewhere in the mix there is not much femininity running in the family...I'm referring to me of course because she outgrew it and her dress is beyond marvelous!
my best laid plans were this:
I knew I had over a year to get "back into" my very own wedding dress...
yeah the gold one I wore at my wedding to Brian that was maybe a size 4? mmm hmmm
I wore it to Grace's wedding even though my mother had to whip stitch it shut (ouch)
I would have worn it to Charles and Jena's wedding but they kind of surprised us so I didn't really have time to shape up to wear it for that...
BUT...since I did know about this wedding for over a year...
my best laid plans were this
Limited Beer (whatever)
Limited Wine (whatever)
Limited Prohibition Cocktails (whatever)
Walk 2 miles a day
Swim (I would if they'd put the dang pool in already)
and to fit into once again my lovely gold wedding size 4 dress. mmm hmmm
if I do want to wear it, the top will have to become a jacket over a white tank...whip stitch was 7 years ago...
and I admit...I really did try it
best laid plans
buy a new dress...(and I just cannot tell you how much I HATE to shop and try on fufu dresses while I have copper flux under my nails)
HATE..maybe because I'm trying on like size 12 or 14 or 16 let's be honest, no one likes that..and I'm all about comfort which means NO spanks for me
I did make a trip to Amarillo and choose a few (see below)
I'm much more interested in what's on top of my armoire
or the unmade bed captured in the mirror
and all the while I was wishing I could fit into my sentimental favorite gold wedding dress
my car just kept arriving at places like
Target (where I did look for a dress)
and Pier 1
because the best laid plans of mice and men
NO ONE WILL BE LOOKING AT ME!
but they might be looking at my patio!
