More Stuff

Well, the wedding countdown has definitely started along with the weather watching. My South Carolina sister was already complaining that it's only going to be in the 40's. I told her to suck it up. I'm happy with 40' could be below zero!

I made a few more purchases over the weekend....found a really cute little purse....even though I HATE purses...dumbest thing there is...who the heck needs to carry around their life in a bag every day? Come on ladies, really! I plan to do a post on this another day. Anyway, I did find a cute little silver one for $13 on sale.

Also found a bra that doesn't show with my dress...I bought a push up bra...but I quickly realized that you must have something for it to PUSH UP in order for it to really work like the picture on the tag! HA!

Bought some make up....another thing I don't use too much of, but I thought I would "girl up" for the big event! I usually only wear powder, a little natural shadow and mascara. I bought some foundation and blush and tried it out today. Not bad.

The big purchase.....Flexees...the generic Spanx. I don't have a lot of large "rolls" but the ones I do have definitely showed in my dress.....I just didn't want to spend the money...but I sucked it up and bought one in order to suck it in and I will say, it does make the dress look better. UGH!

Still can't find inexpensive little silver slip ons though...I may just grab some silver flip flops. I'm hoping to get through a good portion of the evening in my three inch heels, but my back might have a different plan. I would be perfectly comfortable bare foot, but that probably isn't appropriate for the mother of the bride.

I also want to apologize to the wonderful people that have bestowed blog awards on me over the past couple of weeks. I regret that I won't be able to do them the right way this week, but I do want to acknowledge the kind and thoughtful people that sent the awards my way.

I received two Lemonade from Beholden-to-Nature and one from Rachelluciejewelrydesigns. I also received a Proximidade Award from Softpencil. Please check out their blogs. They are all wonderful. Thanks so much for the honor. I will try next week to pass on the awards to some of my favorite blogs....and I have many. I can't believe how many awesome people I have met through blogging. Never expected it and it's wonderful.

Well, it's time to continue gathering things that go in my suitcase for Friday, so far I have two organic chapsticks packed that I bought for the boys!

Lucky you! I've got more to push up and Spanx that I care to acknowledge. How exciting that the wedding is less than a week away!

Lucky you not to overly needs Spanx (pseudo or not).....I would trade that for smaller "assets!"

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy....

lolol your daily antics sure make my day... if I could I'd go barefoot for my friend's wedding but I'm sure she'll kill me... I don't know if you've tried payless for some shoes... i brought some flats just to use for the summer and they're fairly comfy and cheap. Still have them.

Good luck with the wedding! I hope everything goes off without a hitch. Can't wait to see the pictures!

It's almost showtime, how exciting!I have much more use for purses than bras, I should write a post about those! *Laughs* I don't know what Spanx are, so I certainly hope I don't need 'em. And makeup, I only wore lipstick on my own wedding day, had I known better-I'd have worn my favorite vegan peppermint lip balm and ditched the shoes too! You're my kinda gal!

Spanx - I tried that once, boy did I itch all over. The dress fit real nicely though. I think with all the squirming I did, everyone knew what I had on:):) Yeah, no shoes sounds perfect to me too.

Kathy, it's about time I catch up with your blog, you have been on my mind allllllll week with the wedding this weekend! I'm so laughing at the spanxs, I did the same thing for my daughter's wedding and a slinky dress I had no business in but hey, I was getting desparate. The spanx only cut off the blood supply, my tummy still popped out, but by then I truly didn't give a damn, I was poured into that spandex and if nothing else it kept me walking upright and straight!

Have a wonderful weekend. Try to cherish every minute and relax and enjoy.
