If the Dress Fits

We have friends visiting this weekend so I'm busy cleaning (and blogging). I have had my wedding dress in a bag on my dining room table since I bought it at the Running of the Brides sale a few weeks ago. It's there for a reason, we have a small apartment with NO storage. However, it can't very well camp out on our dining room table when we have company staying for the weekend. That, and I have big plans for that table on Sunday. Can we say Save the Date assembly line?

The way I see it, I had only one option. Space Saver Bag!

Wedding dress in a bag, on a table...

Wedding dress on its way into another bag, on the floor...

Wedding dress in the bag ready for it's destiny...


Wedding dress goes flat just like that...

Oh, wedding dress, you are looking mighty thin!

(sorry, I'm feeling punchy!)

Bad Music

I listen to Internet radio at work. Pandora to be specific. What is cool about Pandora is that if it plays a song you don't like you can tell it. Any song you give a negative rating too will never be played again. Sweet.

Today it decided to play Sweet Home Alabama. I came running to the computer... NOOOO, EWWW!! Most people in my generation love this song much in part due to the very popular movie Legally Blonde. Me? Not so much. You see, to me and my friends it actually causes us to remember something painful, the state a friend died in. While maybe I'm being a little sensitive, it got me to thinking. While I want to remember Nancy on my wedding day I certainly don't want that song playing at the reception. This negative rating system on Pandora could help me cultivate my do not play list for the DJ! I love how it's easy to turn every day mundane things into wedding planning tools. Right now it's playing Fleetwood Mac. Ah, that's better.

I'm Back!

I disappeared for an entire month, I'm sorry. At least it was the shortest month of the year right? It didn't feel like the shortest but that's a story for another time. What matters is that I'm back and I ended my month on a good note:

This is the Filene's Basement "Running of the Brides" sale at 12 noon on Friday.

What's this? Oh, that's just my wedding dress sitting next to me on the train home.
