What I Accomplished and the Importance of Good Buttonholes
First of all, over the holiday weekend, I turned this:
It might as well be a mile high.
Now I just have to work my magic and turn that (see above) into 2 quilts.
Concerning Christmas parties. I always go straight to Dress Barn for my outfits. They have never let me down. One year when Little Bit was really little, I had a great pair of black pants that made me look and feel thin. My entire goal that year was to find a shirt beautiful enough to go to a Christmas party in that matched those pants.
Here is what I found. Isn't it lovely?
The bad news about that shirt is that I was seated next to Mike D. all evening. He works with S. He was sitting on the unfortunate (depending on how you look at it I suppose) side of me all evening. It would have been better if S had been on that side because not once, not twice, not even 3 times, but AT LEAST 5 times that evening I would look down and 3-5 of my buttons would be popped open.
I am sorry to say I was not wearing a fancy bra either.
And also, it's difficult to discreetly AND QUICKLY button that many buttons at a dinner table.
You have never seen a shirt be disposed of so quickly upon my arrival home.
Needless to say I am not looking to get that intimate again with my husband's co-workers. Dress Barn, don't fail me this year!!!
