Brown Dress

I need your help.

I'm in my sister's wedding in the first week in July and I need a dress.

We're supposed to wear brown.  Chocolate brown and in any style that we pick.

I've looked but honestly, haven't had much luck.  Plus, with a big 'ol belly, it doesn't make it easy to know how it will really fit, when I try it on.

This is what I had found so far...

A t-shirt teared dress that is really cheap and light weight.

Outside of that, I haven't had much luck.

Aside from this Merona Women's Artist Dress in Rumcake from Target...

Could you help me find something?  Please.


I was in two weddings just after I had my second. Both chocolate brown, They are to the knee or a little longer. Let me know your size and you are welcome to either if you want.

I like the Target dress. It looks easier to dress up...and probably very comfortable and flattering. It also draws your attention up toward your chest.

I was in a wedding 6 weeks after E was born. I was told to buy a dress 2 sizes bigger than my normal size. It turned out to be right (especially if you are nursing). I still looked about 4 months pregnant for about 6 weeks in the belly area. :(

Could you buy two sizes and return the one that doesn't fit, since the wedding is only weeks away?

Check out you can search by color which is really helpful. J Crew also has a great basic dress collection in their bridal section and they usually have brown. Best of luck!

Hi, I have been a lurker on your blog for a while and I also am going through some IF issues.

I saw your request and I am a super queen of online shopping, so I found some dresses on overstock that may be of interest

Hopefully this helps

What about something like this?

I would definitely go for something with more of an a-line type of shape than the Merona one you posted, IMHO.

Love the 1st overstock dress and the last target dress from AphiQprincess also love the Macy's dress but it's a little pricey. I HATE dress shopping too so I am of no use! LOL I think the shape and design of the 1st overstock dress will be really flattering and slimming. Good Luck!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
