Just a little bit of guns & dresses

Always a Bridesmaid...

Haha. Sorry I am already laughing. Its 10 am and I have already had an interesting day. Right before Thanksgiving one of my best friends succumbed to the man and got engaged. Mary Catherine if you are reading this you know I am joking and am very excited for you (plus you know I love Rob). So don't get angry...Any who, I was lucky enough to be one of the few, the proud, a BRIDESMAID. This will be my first appearence down the aisle. Now let me be honest and say I was a bit petrified when she first asked me, in fact I may have not responded in the proper bridesmaidsy fashion, but MC hung on the line and got me through it...Now I am super honored to get to be a part of her big day.

Enough of the sentimental sappiness. I am going to get down to the meat and potatoes. The reason I was a bit apprehensive would have to be the thought of bridesmaids dresses and treking down the ol aisle for the world to see. Today is where this vision became a reality. Being last minute and a procrastinator I waited until the last day to go and get my dress stuff. I had my appointment at 9:30 am this beautiful February morning. I was nervous the whole 10 min drive down to King St. I will give the place credit though-it's pretty cool and the girl in there is extra nice. One reason I was nervous was because for some reason I thought you had to be naked when the measuring went down and if you know me you know I was not too thrilled about this. Thank God that is not the case. I was fully clothed lucky for the measuring lady. But in all honesty, who likes to go have their measurements taken. It's a bit depressing if you ask me. But all in all I survived and will live to see another day. Now all I have to is work out 10 hours a day until June so I can look smokin hot when I trip down that aisle....

Until next time,

Betty Bridesmaid....


  1. Super funny post. I personally think you'll rock that aisle with lots of style.

  2. Um I might have just peed my pants a little...or a lot. I love you Sass. As some one who has been a bridesmaid more times than I can count...I completely understand!!! Having to squeeze yourself into a dress that you would have never chosen for yourself is bad enough, but then you have to wear it all night and try to have fun even though you are freakishly uncomfortable. I like to think of it is a nice way to show your friends how much you really love'll wear the dress (that while it may look beautiful on some of the girls), makes you feel like you have bulls eye on your chest all so your friend can have the best day of their life. Go Sass!

  3. My beloved niece,
    Your blog rocks, but you rock more!
    Your Aunt Vicky

  4. You are hilarious! Sass...I have no doubt that you are going to work it down the aisle. MC is lucky to have you in the wedding. I hate getting my measurements taken too.
