@nonvolleyball After my sister was bounced off a trampoline onto a gravel parking lot (what, it was like, 1991, didn't everyone sit on the springs?), our parents told her to just man up. She even swam in a swim meet. Crawled out of the pool sobbing. Three days later they took her to urgent care. That arm was BROKE. And to think my parents used to think children's services would come and get us all! For whatever reason I don't know!
@Lexa Lane @SuperGogo @armyofskanks I am legit amazed at J Jill's shoe offerings. My High School English Teacher Who Had a Lot of Snakes NEVER wore shoes like this. Just lots of tunic-y mother earth-y dresses and, you know, snakes. She was definitely a Mature Lady Shopper. PS Lands End ballet flats are the best!!
Can someone please talk to me about how THOSE WEDGES of hotness are from J JILL. J JILL. WHAT. That is the High School English Teacher Who Has a Lot Of Snakes Shop (I may be referencing my actual high school english teacher who had a lot of snakes ... and most certainly did not wear Wedges of Hotness).
@amelia! @dj pomegranate @readabook:
Was-band? I snorted. Legit snorted. Lame Duck Husband? Triple snorted.
@moose I'm so glad you have real world experience with the infinity dresses! I think it will take me all of two minutes to get into my wedding dress, and then it will take at least 15-20 min per bridesmaid to get into their dresses. You cannot do it alone. It requires a partner and YouTube video tutorials.
@dj pomegranate have you looked at the Coralie Beatrix Facebook page? There are some gorrrrrrgeous brides wearing the white version! You will be stunnnnnnnnning!!!

1. FI?! WTF is that. We use Husband Elect. He takes office in just about two months.
2. I didn't want to go with all matchy matchy dresses for the bridesmaids but had a really hard time finding three similar-enough-navy-but-not-too-dark-so-it's-black-on-film dresses. We found these: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoralieBeatrix
I am obsessed and want one in ALL THE COLORS. They are seriously flattering on EVERYONE. And unless my three Bowel Movementers are lying to me, they are obsessed as well. The twirlability and rewearability factor is VERY HIGH with this dress.
@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher You are welcome! EVERYONE, please use it widely! I looooove being Wife Elect. I haven't taken office yet but boy is it fun already!
GREAT JOB LW! I am logging in to comment for the first time in forever because I am so proud of you! I make the bed every morning. The Husband Elect is now super into it too. He says he never knew what a difference two minutes of bed-making made. I am SO EXCITED FOR #LAMOB month!!!!
@paddlepickle Your grandmother sounds like she'd really like my grandmother! My Grandma likes to announce what types of medication her grandchildren (and their various spouses and ex-spouses) are on,, at any given time. When she was introduced to a now-ex, in response to "nice to meet you" she said "thank you" and nothing further.
I just engaged. Am debating so much WEDDING NONSENSE as of late. Is it bad that I want to start practicing this with my dad right now? REDONK. SO REDONK. His faces are the best.
@cherrispryte Have fun this time! I am on Day Four of 12-13 hour workdays this week, WAHOOOO! Hope everyone gets to wear weird printer address label nametags again.
