So, this is the dress that I may end up wearing to Angie's wedding. My good friend Debbie loves to shop and loves especially to shop for other people, not herself. She saw this dress and thought I might like it. She called and asked if she should get it and bring it to me and I said "YES, PLEASE!" I have not been in the mood to shop for a dress. Perhaps it is this weight issue I have going on. Debbie bought this dress at Von Maur, a store that I love because they don't charge interest on their credit cards. They gift wrap anything you buy for free and also have free shipping from their website. You don't even have to ship it back if you don't like it. You can just take it to the store and get your money back.
I really like the dress, though it is a lot more than I wanted to pay for one. It looks a lot better in this picture because there is actually a waist in it. When I put it on, there doesn't seem to be that inward dent in the middle that should be there, like in the picture. I am going to keep it though and try to whittle myself a waist. I am not even going to ask your opinions on this because I don't want to be disappointed when no one gives one. HA! If I find something I like better, I can always return this one to Von Maur, because they are the best! Check out these shoes they have. Should I wear silver shoes? Oh shoot, I just asked your opinion. I think I may want some sparklier ones.

Angie's Surprise

How sad is it that I go to the trouble of throwing Angie a surprise birthday party and these are the only pictures I have of it. My future son-in-law and his trusty camera forgot to go to work and I was too busy to think of it too. I did get a couple more but they are stuck on my camera until I find the cords to it to get them off. I didn't realize that I didn't have the memory card in the camera. Angie had been working long hours and had been away from home working in Dallas and San Diego for almost two weeks so I decided kind of at the last minute to throw her a party. When she came home from the airport she was a bit shocked to find her friends and family here yelling surprise when she walked in the door. Then we broke into a chorus of Happy Birthday. Click the pictures bigger to get the look on her face. At least I got these pictures. The first one she saw was Erik and she wasn't expecting him to come into town for a few more hours. These cupcakes I made were on a sweet table that I set up. As soon as I find that camera cord I will show it to you I haven't been in the mood to post anything lately and have been a bit busy. The wedding is creeping up on us so I am sure I will be getting busier and busier too. I think I have found my Mother of the Bride dress thanks to my good friend Debbie who really should be a professional personal shopper. More on that later. American Idol is getting ready to come on so I have to go.
