I must say that I think that sometimes I live life a little too much on the edge. In addition to the other blog I posted about not trying things on, well it brings something else to mind.

The day of my wedding, we all had our dresses and all the guys had their linen pants and shirts and we were all ready to rock and roll. I was getting a little stressed out because I had pretty much done everything for my entire wedding. I did everything from handmade party favors/thank you favors to the photography for our invitations to making the centerpieces. My parents disappeared due to some family circumstances mid-way through all the wedding stuff and needless to say, didn’t show up for the wedding. I will be posting a blog on that one because it is a story you WON’T believe.

So as we are getting ready, my bridesmaid Crystal was putting on her dress and asked me to zip it. I don’t think she had tried it on yet. (Remember, we don’t try things on!) I guess she got that wonderful habit from me. So she calls for me to zip her dress up and well, it wouldn’t zip. The causative factor for it not zipping was not the fact she had gained weight. The zipper was broke. What on earth were we going to do was all I could ask myself.

So she made some calls around to some of the local seamstresses and was able to get an appointment right up the road. So in the midst of her picking up our flowers, she had to run to get her dress fixed and do all of this other running, which we had not planned on having to do.

If I had it to do over, I probably would still pull the same trick but I previously said that one day something would come up for me to learn my lesson of not trying things on, so maybe this was it!
