Are you a rabbit?

For Red Ribbon week, everyone could dress up as their favorite book character on Friday. Most of the grades did things as a team. We had to think hard because with eight people on your team, a lot of books get ruled out quickly. We decided to dress as the different mice from the Kevin Henkes books. I immediately wanted to be Julius (a baby mouse) so I could go to Target and get adult footy pj's. (I'd secretly been wanting some for a while.) I made our ears so they would match the color of the mouse in our book. I got asked all day if I was a rabbit because of my white ears. :)

You Know You're a Texan When...

... you click on a 'cuisine' tab and get upset when Bar-B-Que isn't there. HA!

Poor thing. :(

Yesterday I was taking care of some wedding details and had to run in to Alfred Angelo for some bridesmaid stuff. While walking in I noticed the two girls who were ahead of me in line. (Warning: I'm an eaves dropper!) Here's how their conversation with the sales woman went:
Sales Lady: "Good afternoon. What can I help you with?"
Two Girls: "Do you have any pants suits?"
SL: "Hmm, let me see... We only had one and it's been discontinued. You could buy the sample if if fits. When is the wedding?
TG: "November 12"
SL: " Ooo. I don't know if we can get it cleaned for you in time. It would come in the week of the wedding. Would you like to see it?"
TG: "Sure. Why not?"
The sales lady proceeds to put out the most horrible pant suit known to man. (No wonder it was discontinued!) The girl didn't like it but was going to try it on because they were having trouble finding an ivory pant suit. I felt bad for her. I'm marrying a man and want to wear a dress. There are a ton of them out there. She wants to marry a woman and wear a pant suit and can't find anything. (And before you roll your eyes and think, "Well, if she was marrying a guy and wearing a dress she wouldn't have that problem," we supposedly live in a 'free' country and she should be able to marry whoever she wants. It's about equal rights and not judging others people! Moving on...) I figured that a store like Alfred Angelo would cater to all types more so than a boutique. Poor thing.

Big what?!

Anyone, seen the ads for or watched TLC's Say Yes To The Dress: Big Bliss? (Watch a clip here)I have issues with this show. 'Nuff said.

I have a veil! I wanted to borrow Jamie's for my 'something borrowed' but it wasn't the right color. :( You'd never think there could be such a difference in peices of tulle, but there are. Some of those things were. . . not me. I picked one that I had tried on when I got my dress. Two layers of ivory tulle with beading on the edge, simple. Anyway, another thing I can check off the list.
