Updates and Fancy Dresses

We’ve been busy here at forgetful.  And most of it it isn’t the fun kind on busy.  And it’s mostly house-related.  Our house is still on the market.  It’s been almost 3 weeks now and though we’ve had a lot of traffic coming through, we have not had an offer.  Yet. 

Today, in 15 minutes we are having our 4th return showing.  It’s the fourth family to come back through and our house is apparently at the top of their list.  YAY!  If we get an offer today (or soon – I’m not that much of an optimist) we can finally relax.  Keeping your house in a showhome state is not easy.  And when Jaia follows you around pulling out whatever you’ve just put away, you have to work twice as hard to keep things immaculate.  And it’s immaculate.  And I’m more than ready to not worry about how immaculate it is for a little while.

Onto other, more fun things: The Fancy Dress Party.  This has been in the works for awhile now, and I’m thrilled that it is finally happening.  Ever since I have owned a wedding dress and worn it just over 3 years ago, I’ve been in cahoots with Michelle and others to have a party where we all get to wear our favourite fancy dress (wedding, bridesmaid, prom) and hang out.  And now, in just a few weeks, I will be sporting my lovely Augusta Jones for the second time.  I even tried it on last night (in sheer excitement) and it still fits!!  No small feat, considering I had a baby since that last time I had it on.  Excellent.


The only question that remains…….is…….to veil or not to veil.  A very tough call, but I’m leaning towards veil.  I mean, if you’re going to wear a wedding dress, you might as well go all the way.

Auntie Jen - There is a very good chance I will be inviting myself to the Fancy Dress Party! I am waiting on the ‘yes’ from the Agrium people to book my flight to ON June 10th which means I hop on a plane to Ottawa that Friday. YAYAYA!
