Here come the BRIDES

Jenn hosted a wedding dress challenge of sorts. So, with our deep love of all things wedding, Cpt Mom and I were eager to join in the fun. We decided to wear our dresses doing something we sometimes get to do together - errands and such. It was fun.

Here we are before leaving. It was cold and rainy, but we took off our jackets and posed pretty.

Here I am stuffing all the material into the truck. Which reminded me of my wedding day when I had to do that in my husband's much smaller truck.

Here's Captain about to hop in. She had a hoop skirt!!!

It really freaks guys out for you to show up at Lowe's in wedding gowns. I think I saw a guy run out of the store screaming when he spotted us.

I was talking during the snapping of this picture (big surprise there), but I have to include it because it is where we spend many an afternoon...the play area of Chick-Fil-A.

Shopping for some barftastic shoes at Ross.

You knew we'd go somewhere for a sweet fix!!! This custard place is so yum, and the owner wants her mommies group to have a wedding dress party now. Way to go, Jenn, for inspiring women everywhere!

My posed pic.
Three cheers for fitting in our dresses. These would not have fit us one year ago!!!
