I Need a New Dress for all the Parties
We're starting to ease into that crazy, busy time of year where we have a scheduled activity of some sort nearly every weekend. Most of those activities revolve around friends' weddings; there are engagement parties and showers and bachelor trips and then of course the BIG DAY or weekend if it's someplace far away.
I love that so many of our friends have found The One. I think it's very important for Brian and me to have good, married couple friends. And I'm so looking forward to helping them all celebrate, even if it means we give more Pottery Barn gift cards this summer than Fenway has toys, which you would think would be impossible.
All the upcoming wedding parties got me thinking about how important it is to pick a good husband. Take for instance, Carly Smithson from American Idol. Here she is, a pretty talented singer and performer. I've really enjoyed most of her performances. (My favorite was "Come Together", back on the first Beatles week.)
But if you're the momma of a 12 year old girl who begs to vote for an Idol, are you really going to encourage her to vote for Carly? The girl married a man with a tattoo ON HIS FACE. Really, the face tattoo just makes me think of crazies like Mike Tyson.
I don't have any idea if Carly's husband is crazy like Iron Mike, but I think she could have done a better job picking a mate. It's such a crucial decision, even when you'll never grace the American Idol stage.
Marrying Brian was the best decision I've ever made. He's a great wedding dancer even if he's not much of a hunter.
