See? I'm not the only one that thinks you should dress up a touch for a wedding. That's gratifying. :) I for one am ready for the pendulum to swing back to dressing for the occasion. I don't want to go to "touch up your lipstick and don't bother your man when he gets home from work" days, just, I love dressing up.

Speaking of, I'm going to put on some waders, pasties with tassels, and a top hat and go to church today. It's what Emily Post would want, you guys.

I also have to finish cleaning house, start the laundry, vacuum/clean my car, bake 2 dozen cupcakes, finish prep for my daughter's birthday, and get us all packed to go out of town for Memorial Day weekend. Meanwhile, this book won't read itself... NO. I NEED TO BE GOOD. but I'll probably lame out later and sit and read....

Just on my iPod? "Oh. My. God, Becky, look at her butt, it is so big!" I LIKE BIG BUTTS AND I CANNOT LIE. <-- Sal, that's for you, toots. :) LA face with the Oakland booty, yo.

Feel free to link that wherever, should you have the urge. :D

No, you aren't alone if feeling you should dress up when you go to a wedding. Or perhaps check out yourself in a full length mirror including your behind, practice walking with shoes you plan on wearing and DO NOT WEAR FREAKING FLIP FLOPS.

Do people really have to be told not to wear white to a wedding if you aren't the bride?

ALL MY CUPCAKES ARE BELONGING TO YOU! (Vanilla with chocolate frosting, and chocolate with vanilla buttercream frosting! I need to figure out a way to decorate the tops with 13. THIRTEEN, J. She is going to be THIRTEEN.)

First...CUPCAAAAAKES!!! So delicious, and I am packing myself into a box and shippign myself overnight so I can eats thems!

Second...WHAAATT?? SHE IS NOT ALLOWED TO BE THIRTEEN! I mean, seriously, did we sign off on that somewhere? Because I cannot recall authorizing that. D:
May. 27th, 2010 03:44 pm (UTC)
I am making 2 dozen, so there are plenty to spare!!!

SHE IS NOT ALLOWED. That's what I'll do! I'll ground her from aging! EXCELLENT IDEA, MADAM.

I hope that does the trick!

You know, Miss C has recently started carrying a purse, and I was telling my sister how, when I visited you, your girls would be all ready and hair-brushed and adorable purses in their hands whenever we went out. :D They are so cute and girls, and really, #2 is like a young woman practically now????
May. 27th, 2010 03:54 pm (UTC)
OH MISS C!!! *wraps her up in sunshine and kitten whiskers* I just love that dressing up stage little girls go through. (And little boys in their play-acting stage, too, with the Superman capes, and cowboy gear! <3)

#2 is TALLER THAN ME. She is in so much trouble for that, because she is STILL GROWING. I think she'll top out at 6 feet, honestly. She's so lovely and funny and smart and kind and the NICEST BIG SISTER, it's really ridiculous. Emily is all about doing whatever #2 does, and she takes it all with such humor. Emily will repeat a joke #2 just made and she'll look at me and laugh while shaking her head. I hope she never goes through that eye rolling, "SHUT UP!" phase. <3 <3 <3!!!
May. 27th, 2010 03:56 pm (UTC)
This is so ridiculous, but I'm totally tearing up, hearing how #2 is so tall (and gorgeous, I'm sure) and turning into the most fabulous young woman ever! It's fantastic that she's such a wonderful big sister! Awwww! <33333

If ever a child was worthy of a good misty eyed response, it's my M. I just *like* her and the person she is! So organized, so helpful, clever clever clever. Clearly she got that from your side of the family. ....wait. ;)

Is it an afternoon wedding? Waders are only appropriate before 5 pm, and pasties with tassels make it sound like an evening affair (make certain the G string matches). The top hat is always appropriate.
May. 27th, 2010 03:42 pm (UTC)
Oh, no, it's not a wedding, just church. I like to just wander around the facilities, showing people how to behave. While wearing waders, pasties, and top hats.

It's FUN to dress up. And if I had My way, there would be no flip flops (bad for the feet, no support, makes your arches fall) or those damn plastic things that I hate so much I can't remember the name of them. I've never seen one person walk gracefully in them - they all look as though they're about to trip and fall. Crocs. That's what they're called. They make your feet sweat and get stinky...

Well, sorry. If I want to go on and on about footwear, I will do that in MY lj.

Happy Birthday to your little girl. 13 indeed.

Cupcakes...! MMMM.
May. 27th, 2010 05:17 pm (UTC)
It really, really is! And I am RIGHT THERE WITH YOU on the crocs! Gleh. The only flip flops I wear are a pair of Clarks that have a built in arch support. mostly I'm in my Birks in the summer, though. They make my feet happy. (Or barefoot, because I'm southern to the core. Lol.)

I've always felt that way about weddings! I TOO LOVE DRESSING UP! It helps that my husband likes to see me in a dress or a skirt because he gets to stare at my legs. XD
May. 27th, 2010 07:42 pm (UTC)
I love being a man! Own 2 suits, 2 pairs of dress shoes, 3 ties = prepped for everything! Wooooo!

Though, seriously, the tan line pointer seems a bit too much for me. Stuff like this happens, especially when people tan only when swimming.

HAHAHAHA 13. Oh, how I burn to tell you the horrors in which I was engaged at 13. But then you might reach through the internets and slaughter me.

I wear jeans and t-shirts to work all the time, and in the depths of summer, cargo shorts and tank tops. And above all, trainers. So whenever we have a posh members-only event at a museum or gallery, or a gala that must be attended, everyone always does the :O face at me when I show up in random couture and stilty heels. IT IS VERY ENTERTAINING, especially because the bitchy office manager is always snarking at my supposed total lack of fashion sense.

I take no snark from a woman who thinks that bleaching a moustache makes it invisible. NEWSFLASH, LADY: YOU LOOK LIKE A CONFEDERATE GENERAL.
May. 27th, 2010 11:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, I was once 13, too. And everything I need to know about modern 13 year olds I learned from Holly Hunter's movie. I'm getting my kid a pipe of her very own, so she doesn't just Maguyver some honey bear shit. They always forget the carburetor, silly kids.

LOL! at this very moment I am wear some knee-length cargo shorts (they're super cute, too) and a tank top and my Birks. And HOLY CRAP, BLEACH DOESN'T MAKE IT INVISIBLE, YES YES YES. Jesus, get that shit waxes, plucked, electrocuted, or threaded. I'm a HUGE FAN of threading.

...not that I need it. *cough*

Aw, you're so sweet. *shimmies for you*

ETA - had to change my icon.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
