Yup! The one I remember is address the invite to my aunt and uncle to Mr. and Mrs not Dr. and Mrs. I was mortified when i figure it out! I called up and explained my error before they got the invite , he just laughed it off but I’m glad I did , my aunt is a etiquette stickler!

When I was younger, I used to be hoorrrrrrible about writing thank-you notes. My mom always made me write them when I was still in the house, but when I got to college, I had some kind of anti-thank-you-note rebellion and would only write them to my grandparents, basically. I thought they were insincere and a stupid formality, and wouldn’t write thank-you notes even in situations that CLEARLY called for them. It wasn’t until I got older and realized that other people genuinely appreciate and notice it that I started to write them consistently. I cringe now when I think of some of the thank-you notes I didn’t write.

Apparently I commited the huge faux paus of wearing a white dress to someone’s wedding.  I thought I was OK, it was a cotton sundress with green and beige designs all over it…..but that whole day everyone kept telling me how I shouldn’t have worn white.  I feel bad…..three years later lol.
