I Wore a Dress for This!

This past Saturday Jimmy's good friend, Scott, was getting married to his long-time girlfriend, Valerie. I barely know either of them but of course I had to go, especially because the girls were even invited. It was a small wedding, maybe 50 guests and much different than any other wedding I've ever been to. I guess I'm used to the big hoopla you get at a good NY wedding. This one, the reception was held at a B&B, and because the house was built in 1902, all the rooms were completely square, small and separated. I didn't think this was the best choice of venue for a wedding reception, but it did work out nicely in the end. There was a huge front porch and I spent a lot of time out there. I couldn't figure out where it was hotter; inside or outside. But at least I was wearing a dress, so any breeze that blew I was able to truly feel! This is the first time I've worn a dress in 5 years, so it was kind of a big deal for me. And I won't even tell you what I went through to find a pair of shoes to fit my wide-ish feet. Oy, it was a debacle!

Unfortunately, this party was not filled with funny people or funny moments, so there's really no story for me to tell here. The most exciting thing to happen was when my boob got caught on the front door's dead bolt as a group of women were walking in. They were laughing, I was laughing, and just said, "Damn things. Always getting in my way!" And that was it for funny. I'll just post some pictures for your viewing enjoyment, and move on to the next blog post.


Here comes the bride...

    Your girls are so beautiful!! As a former soldier dresses are not exactly my strong point either! But I do think they are worth the effort sometimes, brings out our feminine side!

    I'm glad that your sunday made up for your less than exciting saturday. Now don't let that cute new dress collect dust. Put it on and show your stuff! I'm not a real dress girl either but I did wear a skirt today and it is fun once in a while.

  • Naz

    The picture of you with your daughters shows just how beautiful you all are. Sometimes it's fun to just dress up.
