I'll be honest. I had no intentions of blogging today, but there I was... surfing the interwebs, looking for a dress for an afternoon tea party coming up and it hit me. That longing I had felt only a handful of times before. You see, when I got married, it was a quick little thing thrown together in 6 weeks. We'd been together for 3 years and we decided to get married. There was no fancy proposal, no whispering of sweet nothings. We were at dinner and he said, 'i think we should get married.' And we did. My parents living room with only family and one friend. My mom performed the ceremony, made my dress, made the food. Grandma bought the cake. It was over in the blink of an eye, and now here I am, 10 years later... longing to throw myself (and Frank) a reception where we can dance and I can wear a fancy dress. Oh the dress... that's what I'm longing for today. A picture of me, on my happiest day, in a beautiful dress looking happy and healthy and not as though someone stuck an airgun in my ear and blew up my head. I know exactly how much I weighed on my wedding day. 263. Yuck. So, here I sit, thinking about my 'under 200 by my birthday goal' and putting on a pretty dress and dancing like noone is watching. Hey, a girl can dream right?


  1. I think you should fulfill that dream, not only making the weight loss a goal but the dress and party too. I would come! I don't know when your 11th anniversary is but you could make it a goal and start saving money and hold it in front of you like a carrot in front of a rabbit. Make it Happen girl you and Frank deserve it.

  2. You should totally do a 10 or 11 year reception party! You should wear the dress of your dreams! But I think it's really sweet that your family was so involved in the prep and actual wedding. Don't get me wrong, mine were too, but we planned for 10 months after dating 5 before he popped the question in our living room. :)

    And I remember how much I weighed and I can't wait to put the dress on and see how huge it is in 3 years! I am doing it on our 10 year. :) And we'll be renewing our vows, with Elvis in Vegas. My treat to Rob for putting up with me for so long and not getting to "run off and get hitched."
