All That Glitters Isn't Gold

I attended my very first Relief Society activity last night in our new ward. The activity focused on Deseret Industries and service. They had asked all the women in the ward to bring slightly used dresses to the activity. The room was lined with a wide assortment of dresses. To my delight they invited us to browse through the dresses after the we had finished dinner and we could take any dress we wanted and the rest would go to DI.

As I sat enjoying my dinner, minding my own business .... something glistened in my peripheral vision. It was ... beautiful beyond compare .... magnificent .... breath taking ... I had never seen anything like it before. I had to have that dress. After dinner I meandered my way over to the dress. My excitement grew with each step I took. The dress was mine.

Outstanding. The 80's would be very proud of you. That's a keeper if I ever saw one. No, Mitchell, not the dress....the girl.

Amen to aunt Jan. Just need the big hair! When do you want me over?

As for your low ceilings...lol...it reminds me of that one commercial where the newlyweds were in a teeny tiny room, bed, hot tub etc, and they were going to be in a new reality show. It was sooo funny. Wish it was one.
