The Dress

Just in case you were wondering which dress I picked for my sister's wedding in 6 weeks...or is it 5? Hummm...need to see a calendar. I was also not the one in the picture...I know you might have thought so seeing as she is so skinny and lovely, just like me. But, alas, you would be wrong...I picked this dress because I looked less like a cow in it then all the others. As I told Andy, I feel huge in everything, I just felt a "nicely dressed" huge in this. So style D19352 it is! In a nice latte color to boot! No worries. I got a size larger than needed so it can be altered to fit (that and it was not available in the actual size I needed...but hey who needs a dress to fit right without paying an arm and leg for alterations anyway, right?) That and I will be jam packed into a tummy-tucker-inner thingy and what-not anyway....there is no way I am showing up for pictures not trussed up like a turkey, these are pictures that will be posted around my mothers house....where I make my presence known about 2 times a week....I am going to have to see these pictures bi-weekly people...I am even pulling out the self-tanner (WHOA! watch out!) and the "extra-hair" I may be a a size or two plumper than my norm...but I will look smashing...or something similar. Thankyouverymuch!

It's a lovely dress. I'm sure it'll look wonderful! It definitely will help hide the postpartum tummy. Good choice.

A year ago my little sister got married. I was a 7 months prego bridesmaid. Her wedding colors were brown and blue. The only dress that fit over my big belly made me look like a hershey's kiss...and I am forever memorialized that way in all of her pictures. Yee haw... :)

If you look HALF as good as you did on your wedding day--- you'll outshine the bride. Seriously.
The dress is lovely, too. =)

Hey Cari! I think the dress is great. 3 weeks post pregnancy would seem a tad bit daunting. I tried on my pre pregnancy pants on and oh my goodness... not so good. My workout DVD and I will be spending lots of time together once I am healed from surgery. :) I think you look great and I know you'll look beautiful in the wedding. I love the pics of Rigg with his hands up by his face... how adorable he is. What a sweet sweet boy. Can't wait to hear more Mommy stories from you. Let's share the sleepless nights, feedings and emotional roller coasters with the rest of our blogging world! :) Have a great week! peace to you!PS. Is Captain driving yet?
