Bridesmaid dress #10

I got my 10th, yes I said 10th, bridesmaid dress in the mail. The funniest thing is I still have probably 5 good friends that are not married, so I feel like I will probably top out at 15 dresses. I do have to admit, I LOVE being a bridesmaid, and I am quite the pro these days. I love the pageantry, the tradition, and the honor of being a part of such special day in a couples new life together. Not to mention how special you feel that they WANT you to be a part of that special day, and they will remember you being there for the rest of their lives. By the way, yes I still have all the dresses. I remember Traci and I playing dress up in our mom's old bridesmaid dresses all the time, so I guess I am saving them for Lilly to play dress up.

This particular dress is for my step-sister Carrie's wedding in Little Rock, AR, April 25. This will be Rick's first trip to ole Arkansas, and we are looking forward to all the festivities.

Did it fit? What size did you end up ordering? I hope those few pounds you say you put on don't mess it up...although those extra lbs are quite invisible to the rest of the world. And I can't wait to see Lilly dress up in all those dresses. Maybe we can get SG to play along just long enough for a pic. This makes 3 or 4 brown ones now?

Yes it fit, but just BARELY!! On the bright side, no $80 alterations. And I am going to the gym a little, so maybe I will lose a puond. This makes my 4th brown dress. Must be the "IN" thing these days.
