As I have mentioned before, Ed's daughter is getting married next month. November 6th, to be exact. This wedding will be very special, I have no doubt! Anita has been hard at work planning it for nearly 1-1/2 years!!!
Now, I have to find an absolutely-drop-dead-gorgeous-suitable-for-the-stepmother-of-the-Bride dress to wear!
I admit I've been dreading shopping for a dress.....yes, I have. Mostly because I hate shopping for clothes! I hate trying on clothes! I can browse through antique and second-hand shops all day long, but I get nervous thinking about shopping for a piece of clothing such as this. (Remember what an ordeal it was when I was shopping and preparing for a simple weekend trip to Bowie last month???)
Of course, when I started working out, it was easy to put off the shopping because I was in the process of losing weight and toning up. I was hopeful that anything I picked 6 months in advance would be too large by the time the wedding rolled around. (Excuse #1)
Also, it was the wrong "season".....I wanted to wait until the "Fall line" was out before making a selection. Right??? (Excuse #2)
Well, my weight IS less than it was 6 months ago. YEA!!! But, it has pretty much stabilized now that I've gotten to this point. And my body does LOOK different and I LOVE that! So....this is no longer a viable excuse. So long, Excuse #1.
And, I think we are well enough into the season for anything new to be out there in the stores. Adios, Excuse #2.
So, when a girlfriend called earlier this week and suggested we get out and about for a little "Girl Time" this weekend, I jumped all over that! She can HELP me shop for "the dress"!!! And one of the things I love most about this friend is that she will always be brutally straight and honest with me. So, I totally trust her to tell me if something looks great....or awful.
Although I am still undecided about length, color, style, pretty much everything....I am hopeful that I will be successful when we go shopping on Saturday.
So, wish me luck in this "adventure"....Lord knows, I certainly need it!
Thanks and a big ol' hug!
