The Results Are In!!

Well, kinda, the results are in. I'm just too lazy right now to tally them up "officially".

Wow...I've gotta say, you guys are the best! You made me feel so good with your comments...let me just put this out there...the photos must be deceiving! Don't let them fool you into thinking that I look like a million bucks in real life, 'cuz I don't.

In fact, if you saw me naked, chances are you'd throw up in your mouth a little. Clothes hide a lot, and the right clothes hide a lot, a lot!! ;), the popular vote was (unofficially):

With this a very close (unofficial) second:

Coming in dead last by a long shot:

And, here's what I'm wearing:

I agreed with everyone that the dress was definitely more "wedding" apparel...but, here's the catch...I am the "candid photographer" for the wedding, which, I imagine, will involve much squatting and, possibly, being in other unlady-like positions.

Also, the dress was about $110 bucks...the two shirts, together, were just over $50. So, I could keep both shirts and STILL be ahead of the game, monetarily!

To top it off, a couple of people mentioned that wearing red to a wedding is bad luck for the bride...and I certainly don't want THAT on my conscience!

What's funny, is that I had sorta made up my mind, before the post, that I was gonna wear the funky shirt...then, when y'all overwhelming liked the other shirt best, I changed my mind!

Thank you! Thank you all for your votes and comments and compliments. You da bestest!!


  1. I do believe I said RED DRESS.

  2. Where did you get the shirt you will be wearing? Love it!!

  3. Yay! My vote counted! Have fun at the wedding, I'm sure you'll be the most comfy in what you (we?) decided.

  4. I completely forgot you're the candid photographer. Great choice! Love it (in my best Wheezey voice.)

  5. Yay! You look great in it! & if i knew you were taking lots of pics at the wedding, i wouldn't have suggested a dress! You look fabulous! And you are so silly! The right clothes can only hide SO MUCH!!! I bet your husband would beg to differ about you w/o clothes on! Haha. If i did what you just did (pics of me in those outfits), i would be told to forget about it!

  6. Love that shirt!!!

  7. I do like that top...have fun at the wedding! :)

  8. Good pick. Share some of your shots with us when you get a chance!

  9. Good choice...but I do believe you forgot to tell us about being the candid photographer! That would have changed my vote totally! :-)

  10. You are one hot momma! Even if you don't say it! Rock that shirt girl! Have fun!

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!

Check out this view from our hotel room!!

I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.'s like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
