This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

I do not wear dresses very often. The main reason for this is because when you wear a dress you can't hide your belly!

But when I found out my brother's wedding ceremony is going to be on a beach (yes, we do have beaches in the middle of the prairies!), I figured it would be better to wear a skirt or a dress than to wear pants.

I couldn't really find any skirts I liked. But I do like this dress. (I just don't like the belly that is obvious when I wear it, but that's not the dress's fault)

So, as of now, this is what I plan to wear:

the dress

with coordinating scarf

I hope they approve. What do you think?

I love it! and if you think you need to hide the belly which I always do.. Who doesnt? Get a slimmer to wear under it so everything looks smooth :)

I love it! I think you will look fabulous. Make sure it take lots of pictures!!

Why Do We Even Have That Lever? said...

Well, I really like it, but I told you that last night before you bought it!

Now, let me know about the chunky jewellery, or maybe I'll just borrow you some from my sister, and see if you like any. :-P

I think you'll look great!!!!

I love it I think it is a good choice. I love the color. The scarf is a great choice since you dont wear jewlery.

If you are woried about your belly just buy a good shaper to go underneath..
