Fabulous Find For A Friday----A Hubby AND A Spring Dress!


A few days ago, as I was checking my favorite blogs out and reading as many as I could before 1:00 in the morning, my hubby woke up, (he always falls asleep on the couch every night) and asked me what I was doing. I told him that I was reading blogs, and writing comments, which I actually love to do when I have the time.

Him: When are you going to write about me?

Me: I already did----several times!

Him: I don't remember....

Me: Yes, I wrote about you on our last year anniversary and on your birthday!

Him: Oh...that was a long time ago.

Me: Yeah,....well....

Him: ....So, when are you going to write about me?

Me: (SIGH...)


So, I have decided to celebrate the spring season (Welcome first day of Spring!) as well as this special weekend!

First of all, it is our 12th wedding anniversary on Sunday, the 22. Yep, its been 12 years since I married the amazing man that is my best friend, my love, my soul mate (corny, but true), and the best father of not just my youngest, but of my other four children from my former marriage.
He is kind, sensitive, NEVER yells or swears, supports me ALWAYS, laughs at my jokes, and even though he doesn't pick up very well after himself or let me tidy up beside his bed, (which drives me bonkers!) he is the perfect man for me....

We have always known from the day that we met that we knew each other in the life before we were born. We were best friends then and are best friends now, and we plan on being best friends even in the eternities.

So, yesterday when I was trying to shop for something special to give to this unbelievable man---and it wasn't easy as the presents for the 12th year of marriage are----get this-----SILK AND LINEN! Wha the? Yeah, you try to find a man that really wants some silk flowers or a linen tablecloth.

So, back to my story. As I was in TJMaxx, one of my favorite stores----looking, of course, in the Home Goods section for something silkish or linenish----I happened to glance over to the dress rack----ok, so it was RIGHT there! And I saw this amazing dress!

Most of the dresses were dark and knit and stretchy and well, not spring-like, but this one!

I fell in lust....er....love.

This is the dress----I added the t-shirt under---the hanger doesn't do it justice,
but I didn't have anyone to take a pic of me in it!!
And I don't usually wear yellow, but with the different colors up against my face/hair--- I thought that it worked?

So, I may have just bought it and it may be hanging in my closet right now, and I just may have to wear it next weekend. (we can't celebrate our anniversary this weekend, as I have a gig tomorrow night and a friends show tonight)

And I may just have to say that it is made out of some kind of material that resembles linen....and that I am the present inside it. Yes, that's it....

Happy Anniversary, my love.

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I am ahead for now but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere and I would so, so, appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥

Thank you for dropping in on my blog. I am very interested in coming to a blogger meet-up. Email me and we can chat further.

Until then, let's hope for some REAL spring weather.

Happy Anniversary!! Your dress is perfect, it's linen-y with silky strands. Perfect.

PS - After you posted about that gorgeous old house, I fully had a dream about it! Bullet holes and all...

Michele Horne said...

The dress is too cute! You need to get a picture in your anniversary dress so we can all see it!

Carrot Jello said...

Aw, happy belated anniversary.

Shawn said...

Thanks ladies! For your comments and your beautiful faces! I will definitely post the pic of the dress with me in it next weekend...heh, heh,

As for Jann Arden, Hailey----I tried to find my favorite song----"It Looks Like Rain"---that was our favorite, but couldn't get a MP3 of it online... So sad.

Thanks Maryn for stopping by---it means a lot to me---I miss you soooo!!
