I've joined the Appraisal Institute, because that's what you do. Also cuts the cost of classes down quite a bit. So they have a "Best Dress" Dinner party. We first got the invitation in November, which just coming out a surgery we decided not to go. 3 days before the dinner I had been informed at work that I would be going to the dinner and Derek would be coming. So I made the call and we were put on the list. Which next came finding a dress (all this done on crutches).
Not fun. Well it was, because my mom came with me. But let me tell you about me awkward body shape. I'm 5'1 1/2", have what we affectionately call "The Oka Butt" meaning none existing and a Hesley curse or what others call "Blessed." Soooo use your imagination.
I tried on at least 45 dresses...at least. Sizes ranging from 4 - 10. and then you have to add in that most of these dresses are sleeveless. . .
6 hours later, I have 4 dresses at home that all need some sort of alteration/addition.
After having a model show for my mom yet once again, twice for Derek and my Dad. We finally went with this.
And I know it's silly...but I needed new hand pads for my crutches, because they had duck tape holding them together...and the only ones at the store were wood color.
But after all this dress drama, it really was fun to get all dressed up. . .

Often times when i am bored i go to MSNBC.com. Why? To look at the slideshows. Virtual Pictures books. Instead of some cuddly animals i found these.
These tasty dresses look good enough to eat — because the high-fashion costumes were inspired by meals people crave the most.
Photographer Ted Sabarese's collection, named "Hunger Pains," are all made out of food you can buy at the local supermarket. This dinner suit is made from steak and potato.
