There’s a story behind this little white dress.
But first! I want to tell you about our engagement party that went down last month. Mike and I planned a last-minute BBQ to celebrate our engagement with some family and friends. We kindaaa cringed at the thought of having a party in mid-December when everyone is busy with the holidays. I tell ya. that night we both looked at each other and were like dangggg. How did we get so lucky with these amazing friends!!
After trying on a ton of little white dresses, I was really looking forward to wearing this gorgeous Botanica Lace Dress. The day of the party, I just wasn’t feeling it though. Does that happen to anyone else?! Finding a pretty, well-fitting, white dress in December ain’t easy. Brea and I were literally in my bathroom, people walking up in the driveway, and I was just like, “NOPE. Girl, hand me those stretchy pants right there.” Ever since I bought these pants (linked here and here) they are pretty much all I want to wear. They are the same pants I wore in green in this post!
Where am I going with this?
So, I wrapped the dress up, and packaged it for return. I threw it in the car to drop off at UPS on the way to Savannah. Somewhere along the 7 hour road trip, we got on the topic of this dress. Probably bc Mike was like “UMMM I told you not to bring that box!” lol. He hates it when I try to pawn my returns off on him. I told him that I didn’t want to send it back, but I didn’t have another event for it.
Here it is, ya’ll! Mike being the gem that he is, told me to put the dress on this past weekend. He said he would take me out on a date, so I would have a place to wear this pretty little white dress. Cheesy, yeah. But I like the dress even more now. 🙂
So, here’s me, all spiffed up on a Saturday afternoon. Just because MG is a professional hype man. Moral of the story is: be thankful for the people in your life. The ones willing to drive hours and spend all day at your house with people they don’t know. And the ones right in front of your face that encourage you every day. What have you done today to let someone else know that you appreciate them?
