Another Surprise From My Parents’ Basement

Hi, party kittens.  Thank God It’s Thursday, right?  I was telling Marcus that I was putting together the Friday Food Round-Up! tonight, and he said, Wow!  You haven’t blogged all week!

True story, husband.  True story.  Places to go, people to see.

If last week was extremely relaxed and extremely slow, this week has been fast paced and exhausting.  See also: last week I had No Plans.  This week I had Many Plans.

Anyway.  My parents are selling their house, right?  As the endless purging of possessions continues (we’re on month five now), Mom’s latest find was this pink dress that I wore to my cousin Jenna’s wedding when I was approximately 11.  I have no idea as to how that dress has managed to survive in the basement for the last 16 or so years, but it has, preserved in its dry cleaning bag.

When Mom dropped this dress off at our house, she suggested to me that I might try it on. I said Absolutely Not.  Full disclosure: the dress was a child’s size 18.  And then, because I am a glutton for punishment, I attempted to put it on anyway.


The bow is a fetching look, no?
