I'm still a little sad that I missed my prom because I had an awesome dress. It was awesome and didn't even look remotely like this.
Seriously, why did they ruin that awesome 60s prom dress and turn it into a bag? And didn't anyone in the costume department ever hear of strapless bras? I know they had them in the 80s. Anyway, my dress was very fashion forward and there was no crinoline or huge sleeves and there was not a single bow to be found. Nor was it satin. I still have it. It fits Child 3 whom you may remember is 11. She may have worn it to be Queen Elizabeth a couple of years ago. And it might be used for dress-up. At least it got used since it never got worn to the prom.
Child 1's dress is very fashion forward and also has lace and got a thumbs up from the Vietnamese lady who is hemming it who I think speaks no English at all. But you don't need to speak the same language to show that a dress is too long and I'm sure it will be just fine when she hems it.
You know what is not better than a brownie? Losing your car to a sinkhole, that's what. This is a picture of Baltimore after the most recent rainstorm.
If you know American geography, then you will know that Baltimore is basically just up the street from DC. The Potomac River is very full. We don't need any more rain this year, thank you. And also, it would be nice now that it's May if I could put away my wool sweaters. But apparently, this is the Year of Never-ending Winter. But it will probably be really warm in Africa, so I won't complain. Well, not much anyway. Or at least not on my blog. Maybe.
