I sat down for breakfast the other day, with toasted homemade bread, plenty of butter (not homemade) and some homemade raspberry jam.......just perfect.....
Oh, and on Saturday I seemed to have the luck of the Irish, as they say. We have been invited to a Black Tie Dinner Dance in February, a really very posh do. So of course when I went to look in my closet, I didn't see any long fancy evening gowns in there.......shocker or what!!!! Dh is going to rent a tux for the night, but that's not an option for me. Also we are invited to a wedding in October, so it would make sense if I could use the same dress for both events.
So me and dh went dress shopping for me on Saturday. As I am a "full-figured" type of gal, I go to a plus sized store first, recommended by someone. Well I wasn't inspired, and they had nothing suitable. However they were helpful and told me to go to another store. So off we go and I walk in, find dh a seat and wander off. I told the sales girl what I was looking for she pointed me the direction of this dress with a jacket that she thought would be suitable. Well I took one look at it, and it was perfect. I went to try it on, and it fit like a glove. I mean what are the odds........plus it was on sale, should have been $310, on sale for $199.99. So now I just have to find some shoes and a handbag, I'm thinking gold, as the dress is a bronze colour?
