Dress Fitting Troubles

I went for my second dress fitting today and it did not go well! I put the dress on and it was still way too big in the bodice, to the point where it was bunching up and lumpy.

So I'm standing there trying to explain it to the seamstress and she doesn't say it's messed up because of the way the dress is made, or because of how she sewed the dress. No...she says it's because of the way I am made!

She actually told my friend, while I was standing right there, "Look at her hips, see how she is made? They are uneven, one is higher than the other and one leg is longer than the other. It's so hard to sew because of the way she is made." Well sorry, can't really do anything about I'm made, that was kinda up to the man upstairs. I should've told her to take it up with him if she doesn't like the way he designed me!

It's Alive! It's Alive!

Months ago I was distraught when one of my favorite hole in the wall eateries, Yummy Taco, closed down. You might remember them on Independence Blvd in Va Beach. Well I drive by there now and can almost still taste the yumminess that was Yummy Taco.

A few weeks ago my future brother-in-law took a trip to New York and was walking through Brooklyn when he stumbled upon...

It's Alive!!

He said it even looks the same on the inside- a bare bones little place with Chinese restaurant style food photos above the counter. I wonder if they serve the fortune cookies with your tacos too?!

So I guess I have to plan a trip to New York now to find out if it's the same place that stole my heart...and tummy.

Brian said we can film our journey along the instead of "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle," it'll be "Stephanie and Brian go to Yummy Taco!"

America's Funniest Home I come

I went for my first dressing fitting yesterday for the wedding. Unfortunately, in the middle of being pinned and tucked I started to feel like I was going to pass out.

Not unusual for me...especially when I get really warm. And it was hot in the store!

Plus, I ordered the dress big so that I would be comfortable in it but the seamstress pinned it so tight I could barely breathe.

So not getting enough air in addition to being really warm led to some dizzy spells.

But the woman pinning me asked what are you going to do next month? You're getting married in June in an outdoor wedding, it's gonna be hot you know?! Ummm....good point.

So I'll do everything I can to prevent it...maybe buy some fans, fore go the veil in favor of a beer hat that funnels water into my mouth. But if that doesn't work, anyone who's at the wedding might want to bring a video camera. If I end up passing out halfway through the ceremony you'll at least be able to make money off me on America's Funniest Home Videos!
