MOB Dresses

I've been looking at Mother of the Bride dresses all evening while the bride did her annual Christmas baking for the neighbors. I don't know what I'll do next year when she doesn't live here anymore. I guess I will have to start doing it again myself. I have really enjoyed having Angie take over that duty. She loves to bake. Me, not so much. I don't like to get burned and I do every time I bake. As far as the dresses go, I already know I am going to have to start dieting and exercising to be able to fit into anything and have it look good on me. This is not going to be an easy task since I am having a hard time finding anything I even like much. I do however like these samples the best out of all the dresses I looked at tonight. I think I am going to have to wear long to cover up the bad veins in my legs unless I by some miracle get the insurance to pay for me to have them fixed. At this point in the diet I can't even allow myself to put one on. I have never been this fat in my life so this is going to be rough. Maybe I will pretend I am on my favorite show Survivor and just think of them every time I get hungry and try to work through the pain of it. What do you think of these dresses? I think I like the 3rd one the best because it would cover the ugly freckles and brown spots on my chest. The arms are going to need a lot of work. Sitting here blogging is not going to help that either so I had better get off the computer and start getting ready for this wedding. It is only 8 1/2 months away and we don't have much accomplished. We just suffered another big financial blow as well so the stress is mounting. I placed an add on Craigslist offering to wrap gifts for anyone who had enough money to pay someone to do it. I had a response within 10 minutes. A guy wanted me to wrap them for .50 cents a gift, provide the paper and wait to be paid two weeks after Christmas. He upt it to .65 cents when I laughed at his offer. I told him I was going to have to reword my add and changed it to anyone Rich and Generous who needed someone to wrap their gifts. If I have to provide the paper and ribbons & bows .65 cents is hardly going to cover that. Maybe I should have taken him up on his offer but I'm hoping for a better one. I figure it couldn't hurt to try. The job search has begun. My niece is going to be having her baby soon and probably won't be needing me for four months after that since she is going to be off for 3 months and then her husband will be coming home from Iraq and get to stay off work for a month. Too bad everyone else is out looking for jobs right now too. Anyone needing any help with cleaning or decorating out there let me know. A temporary babysitter maybe? Anyway, here are the dresses I halfway liked. Any thoughts?
