The dress

Monday, December 8, 2008

Let's be honest. The Christmas party is never about the party itself. It's about the dress. Which is why I could have killed my husband when he told me 4 days before the party that it was semi-formal and I needed a cocktail dress.

I had been asking him for WEEKS to show me an invitation. "Tell me about this party, honey." "What's the dress?" "Show me an invitation, please honey."


Four days before the party, I get this:

"the party is semi-formal. Girls have to wear cocktail dresses - guys, suit and tie. You'll look hot. Love you!"

Ummm... I don't own a cocktail dress and I absolutely loathe shopping for something that I HAVE to find. I can NEVER find it!

Until this time.

Walked into Express. Found the perfect dress. Bought it. On my lunch hour. Done. Thank you!

The party? Well, let's just say most of these people forgot they had to work together on Monday morning. So yeah, it was pretty fun (and by fun, I mean absolutely hysterical).

And I want to marry the Marriott bed. SO. COMFY.

Happy Monday, y'all!

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
