I was forwarded an email from a friend at work who saw on a local bridal association website, a local boutique was doing a annual bridal dress give-away for military brides. For an essay to enter, I thought, why not. 100 brides would get one.
I got the postcard in the mail this week saying I won one and could come to the event Sunday. Problem is, everyone I know has plans…in MN, our weekends are booked solid….I think I have to go it alone!!!!
Work is done, I guess a cold margarita will dilute the tears running down my cheeks.

Awww, that’s so sad! I mean…it is great that you get a free dress, but it’s sad that you’re picking it out on your own :(. If you have room in the budget, you can always get a reception dress and have people go with you!

WOW! Congrats on winning, but I cant imagine making such a decision on my own!
No way these people can rearrange their plans to go wtih you? I dont mean to sound rude or like they SHOULD, but dang an opportunity like this rarely presents itself! Jump on it! Update us! xo

@CurlyRN: Congrats on winning a dress! That’s awesome!!! Maybe you can text someone some pictures while you are trying on (if that’s allowed)? That stinks that you have to go alone, but to look at the positive: you don’t have to worry about having negative opinions about something you love or someone swaying you one way or the other. 🙂
Hope you find something you truly love!! Post it when you find it!

It was actually fun. Sweet Fiance got a super cool girl from his work that I really like to come with me and then my SIL met me after church. I did not find the dream dress but I did score an expensive dress that I will be selling when I figure out the brand. If I could figure out how to post a photo, I would ask for everyone help.
The event was fun. I got there early, about 6 am with mini bottles of Baileys…yum. I was lucky number 13 in line. They were also taping for an upcoming ABC Extreme Home Makeover but I don’t know too much bout that, other than you will see me in a shot cheering with the other military brides that were there.
