dead battery

(reject dress number one)

(winner dress number nine)


eden took the day off today, so we ran to the mall (well, not literally. if dane read this
he would think we actually "ran" to the mall...such a literal boy) to find
her a winter formal dress, because
as you all know, i scored tickets when they were all sold out.
kind of a long story...
just call me wonder mother.

anyway, 
i grabbed my camera, and out we went. 
ended up at macy's, meandered through the shoe department first, then quickly grabbed about 
10 dresses in the next department over...and found the biggest dressing room we could. 

i got my camera out to take photos of eden in each dress...a fun post, i was thinking...
until my battery died. 
hadnt changed it in awhile...got sidetracked i guess. 
so one lousy shot was all i got.
so frustrating.

found one dress, out of about 10. found some pretty blingy high heels (a first for her),
and even found a rhinestone bracelet and earrings at the kiosk
across from lucky.
all of this completed in just 2 hours (complete with a power walk),
and just in time to pick up dane on time.
 and we even had a pretzel for a treat.

remind me to charge my battery on a regular basis.

good day.

so this has nothing to do with your post (although eden looks beautiful in the dress!) but I was thinking as I was looking at your wing chair - what we really need is a new cushion and a really great custom fitted slipcover. That would cover all the wood and give you a new look and probably cost less than a reupholster job.... sorry, the brain never stops working you know... I'm off to bed. :) love ya
