And They Call It Puppy Love

Seems like everyone is shouting and screaming about something or other these days. Isn't it nice to know that there are people who are quietly taking care of those who can't take care of themselves? Yeah. Me too.

Paper Dolls For Dress Up

I'm going to a wedding. The Handsomest Man Alive is actually in the bridal party and he bought a new suit for the occasion. He looked so good when he was trying it on, I had a hard time keeping my hands off him. Seriously. And so I had a hard time trying to come up with "a look" that would match with his. I'm devoted to the bridal dress reality program, 'Say Yes To the Dress,' but I hate shopping. I come by it honestly, my mother develops terminal illnesses if she's forced to wander around  a mall for more than an hour. And so I was reduced to shopping online -- which is a lot easier than it used to be -- and for someone like me who spends eight hours parked in front of a computer  -- seriously practical. After emailing several different dresses around to several different email addresses and getting feedback from trusted associates, I selected the above option. I usually lean toward a little black dress. I live under the delusion that it makes me look slimmer, but the bridesmaids are wearing black.  I never wear blue. I though this blue was such an unusual and intriguing shade, I fell in love with it. Plus it will go good with purple -- which is my favorite color. I love getting my toenails painted purple. And I learned a new phrase during this shopping spree -- "age appropriate." I found it really difficult to find a dress to suit my age (and body) that wasn't too 'mother of the bride.' Ack! Getting hitched isn't easy for anyone -- even if you're just along for the ride.
