- Wedding: May 2012
It all started with a sit down mothers day brunch with both our families. It all goes reasonably well. Our dads fight over the bill and FMIL brings my mom an orchid. How nice! I bring both moms flowers and Fi’s sister brings both moms more flowers!
Then I ask my mom if she still wants to dress shop she says yes. FMIL hears… I feel obligated to invite her so I do.
We head to the mall. In the second shop we get into I find nothing for my mom, but do find some cute ones for FMIL. Keep in mind shopping is hell for her. She’s 4 ft nothing and very slim. From behind she really does look like a 10 year old little girl. So needless to say she was apprehensive about all things initially for fear they will be huge on her.
Well I pull a sparkley little number with fringe on the bottom. Me and my mom encourage her to try on. She finally gives in.
She comes out and bam! I love it! It needs a little modification but not nearly as much as anyone anticipated! It is soooo adoarble on her. I said I’d pay for half of it. Price was right at $165.
We both bought it and that was that. I’m so happy it was so easy and that I like it soo much! Was a great, short and sweet sucessful shopping trip!
I wish I had a pic, but I don’t.
