MOB shopping

So today I did it...
I finally went out shopping for my mother of the bride dress....
I have been dreading it... putting it off.... because I am not happy with how I look these days...

Jenny and I went out... the first place we went to... all I can say is BLAH... 
talk about matronly dresses... YIKES!

My mood headed south as I tried a few on... and the expense... holy cannoli!

So we moved on to David's Bridal...
Wow what a great selection! AND  *drumroll* ... SUCCESS!!!!

I found it... the DRESS! (and it was very affordable!!!!!!)

Take a peek-

I LOVE IT! & the color will be great with my coloring!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving

Gearing up for Thanksgiving- we have decided since the weather is supposed to be beautiful tomorrow (said while looking at the downpour outside) that we are going to purchase a turkey fryer and try making a deep fried turkey tomorrow.  I have a 12 lb turkey completely defrosted (yes I have seen the videos of the whole thing engulfed in flames) and am hopeful that we can pull it off. 
 What we hope does NOT happen!

Cheergirlie has to go back tomorrow night because JMU made the playoff and they are flying the team & cheerleaders to Eastern Kentucky Fri. morning for the game on Sat. She is super excited to be able to go and we will hopefully be able to watch & catch a glimpse of her on one of the ESPN stations!

Have a SAFE and wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

So has anyone ever been there? 

Any suggestions of must sees?
