I wasn’t even going to post again this week, but then I didn’t want anyone to worry about me. Like, if I was *sick*. Ya, know? See, I do care about your feelings.
Busy, busy, busy. Mostly positive stuff, lots of projects, inside, outside, office, but also some not so fun stuff. Such is life.
The MOST exciting thing that happened this week….are you ready? Can you even stand it? I’m not kidding, it’s phenomenal news! I’m adding in extra exclamation points to get my point across!!
We bought a wedding dress!
She said YES. Although, it would have been a tad fun if Randy Feloni from Say Yes To The Dress had jumped out and surprised us. I do love a good surprise.
Lolo had made some appointments for dress shopping a long time ago, back when the world was only half baked, but then kept changing them as the covid rules were changing. Finally, she made one and said, what the hell, we’ll wear masks and search for a dress!
A little backstory if you will: I was going to post a link here of one or two blog posts where (but I found 47 posts containing the word PROM) I took my girls shopping for prom dresses. I think they each attended 3? (Might I remind everyone on the planet that I did not attend ONE prom. NOT.ONE.) But, my girls were the prom.com. And shopping for dresses was always an adventure because some people are indecisive. Very.indecisive. We would end up buying 2 or 3, bring them home and then think about them. Send pics to Grandparents and vote on them. It was very diplomatic, thought out and of course, a production.
SO, I prepared myself for wedding dress shopping like someone with PTSD going back to the scene of the crime.
Ya’ll, she found the most perfect dress in just over an hour at our very first appointment.
And perfect it is. *sigh*
AND, it was very close to her budget $$. I was very happy, mostly about the dress, I didn’t care about the budget so much…it’s THE dress for heavens sakes-spend the money!
Were there tears? Yes, but not as many as I had expected. I generally save my tears for when it’s not expected; you know, like when I’m watching a commercial or checking out at Costco.
We are very happy.
Have a safe and enjoyable July 4th weekend. Let freedom ring!. I still LOVE my country although I’d like to toss a lot of the inhabitants off the planet and say Que Sera Sera mo’ fo’s!
That’s it for me this week. I’m going to have a full plate all weekend but I will catch up with what you’re up to very soon, I promise!
