Like many ladies I know, my prom dress was the first full-length “real dress” I ever owned. The popular colours the year I graduated were maroon and white, both of which make me look like paste, so I went with an unconventional spearmint green. With rhinstone straps. And white shoes (that you can’t see below but trust me, they were awful). Not sure what I was thinking:
Anyway, it was a great dress at the time. And I had a pretty great evening, due in no small part to how awesome I felt in that dress.
So when I heard about Fairy Godmother of Ottawa from momicon, I knew this was something I wanted to be a part of. Because highschool sucks enough without having to worry about not being able to get a pretty dress on the one night highschool might not suck. And I just so happen to have a few dresses kicking around that I really don’t need. A full-length, caffe latte coloured bridesmaid’s dress comes to mind…
The resolution for today then: pack up three dresses and take them to Brown’s to be donated to a very worthy cause. Fairy Godmother Ezmy to the rescue!
Update on previous resolutions: Saturday breakfasts are still going strong. I made apple cinnamon pancakes this morning – oh so good. And the stroller is clean and up for sale. Oh and I researched all of the candidates in our riding, sent a couple of emails to clarify platform positions and now feel ready to vote. Are you ready?
