my latest accessory

i had a baby on monday. what did you do this week?

if you're interested in hearing the full story, you can read it by clicking here on my family blog. i don't use the words gush, mucus plug or placenta. i don't even mention the part where i chop up my placenta and eat it with cheesy grits the next day. if you aren't interested, that's fine too. i've had to pretend to be interested in many a birthing story and felt my eyes glaze over and my head nod off. 

and since it's my 32nd birthday, here's a little blast from the past from when i was 21. my roommates and i were on our way to the local "club"(term used loosely) as a joke and my roommates and i put together these FANTASTIC party outfits complete with iron-on letters and tastefully placed rips and tears. i had the misfortune of running face first into the circus make up truck. nothing like a classy and tasteful mid-calf blue pleather skirt. 

hurray for babies!

Congratulations! All the best to you, litte Athena and the family! :-D I read your birth story and it was the best I ever read. You know how to write a birth story that doesn't turn off everyone from wanting to have children one day! Seriously, you are the first one I "met" who can do this. It is a true talent.

Thank god i will never have to go thru formal dress shopping again , our experience started when my daughter and i went to sassy boutique to buy a sherri hill dress , we tried it on in a larger size but they had told me sherri hill date to receive it will be later then her formal , so we thought we would try a place called dollhouse in top Ryde , they seemed pleasant she tried on the dress it was way to big for her but they said they can order the size for her by the formal , so we went ahead and placed a deposit mind you they were much cheaper then other places we had went to , anyway we were told the dress will take 3 weeks i went back after a week and asked how is the dress coming along , another girl had served us and told me the dress has finished , finished or arrived!!! so i was surprised anyway payed the balance and went home my daughter was so excited she tried it on and it closed but the bust area was so big so i went to the alteration place also in top Ryde and when i went there it was like he knew us , the guy told me " what’s wrong with it i just fixed it yesterday" , i said what!!! this is a new dress i just bought he hesitated and then quoted me a ridiculous price to fix it , so i went to another alteration place in Parramatter where she had told me this dress had already been altered and the bust area it is hard to fix , she fixed it as much as she can , but the bad thing about all this is i could not take dollhouse to consumer affairs because for me to get my discount , i accepted to buy it with no receipt and payed cash. So what we were told she altered the dress we had tried in the store and just made it smaller from the back zipper because the bust was fully beaded. I hope no one goes thru this i really urge you don't buy from there Doll house are cheaters
