No excuse...

I have no excuse for why I haven't been blogging.

Except...
I finished my spring MBA classes.
I brought home my wedding dress.
The cop and I are finalizing the paperwork for a home.
I dealt with a sick puppy, who is much better now.
I've opened one new checking account, a savings account, and two IRAs.
AND, I got verified over at Police Wives Online (now known as the National Association of Police Wives). That means, that I am spending tons of extra time over there, catching up on all the verified info, stories, and inside jokes.

Yesterday, I had a day off and went with my pal and bridesmaid Colby to find her bridesmaid dress. We found a cute little strappy deal that was absolutely perfect for her. And it made me happy to hear her say that she actually WOULD wear it again. I never wanted to be one of those brides who says "oh, yeah I picked this out, because I think you could definitely shorten it and wear it again for going out and stuff!"

And then you puke in your mouth a little because what I picked looks like this:

And there's no way in heeeeell you are ever going to use it for anything other than a rag to wash your car with.

No, I was really glad I made the choice to let them pick their own. Because maybe then they really will wear it again.

Note to Self: What is your most tragic groomsman or bridesmaid story?

Wow. There are no words for those dresses.

But I'm happy to hear you've been keeping so busy and making moves on your end!

I gotta say, it's the best bet. My girls loved it! One of my sisters even had her own dress to use and it went perfectly!

Was thinking about getting verified on PWO... I guess I should go check and see what all that might entail.
Sounds like you've been a busy gal!
Have a good one

One word - lavender. It does NOT work on brunettes.

Clearly it was the opening of a checking account that was the tipping point...
