Wednesday Update I said previously..this is a nutty week and I finally realize that I love staying home and getting "stuff" done.

I did manage to get out a few florals that have been floating around in my mind for some time...If you can believe it I am already thinking towards Memorial Day and the summer months. I think Spring has taken too long to arrive and I am fast forwarding time.

We had snow/sleet the other night and I think I almost cried. I did my best to cover the plants I transplanted but not sure if they survived the prolonged cold snap.

Does anyone realize that next weekend is the First Communion/Derby Party. I am so in trouble on so many different levels.

First off, I am still working on Hannah's dress. I completly changed the pattern and mocked it up to fit my likes and then added dupioni silk to the top. My mom thankfully is pulling me through all this and we should finish it up by the weekend. I will certainly have the unveiling for you soon.

I do not have my dress or my hat and need some serious help. Here are some of the selections I found on line last night.

Derby Option Number 1 Anthro

Derby Option 2 Anthro
I have been out and about looking but because I hate ( I know that is a strong word but I do) showing my arms, which in turn widdles my selection down to nothing. To add to the nonsense...I don't like clothes to be too tight on me. Yes, I know I have issues but it's just me.

Love love love this dress... Anthro
Could I put a tshirt under? Could I wear a sweater?

This I just adore...Garnet Hill

As far as the menu is concerned that will be nailed down this weekend but I know for certain it will have a Kentucky feel. Pulled Pork and Beef Brisket, Fried Chicken and lots of Grilled Shrimp for starters.

In my last post I indicated that I had to go to a doctor's appointment. Well, I did and this is what I got.

It is 45 different household allergens that they are testing me for. I have had a strange on and off rash, that covers a good portion of my body, since early December and my skin has paid a high price.

These patches will stay on until tomorrow morning at 10:00 and then we will unveil the results. If I can just tell you now, they are itching up a storm and I want to rip off those bandages right now. On the bright side of things, we have had a great time making jokes about what the allergens might be...

The Accountant say there must be one on there for "budgets" and "saving money" since it is such an on going problem for me. Yep...I am sure he's right but I don't think that will change too much in the scheme of things.

Stay tuned as there is lots more to come this week, Sandwich Antiques Market, First Baseball Games, Party Ideas and Planning :)

Yikes! Too much stuff going on, girl!
1- All the dresses are fab! (sorry, not much help, I know)
2- A little sweater might me the solution to the arms-thing
3- I hate allergies! They run in our family, the last victim was my Daughter...2 nights in ER due to Hives (allergy to some ant killer spray!) We went natural now!!
4- The Accountant and my Husband sound the same (mine is a Loan Officer for Wells Fargo): save, save, save!
5- Can't wait for the menu...I can already taste it!!! Love, Marcela

That is alot of patches. That is amazing. I hope you get the results you want soon.

Love your flowers. Beautiful.

I love all the dresses. That is so very hard to choose. I think you would look good in them all.

Ouch! I knew that was allergy testing as soon as I saw it - hope it's nothing too bad! I love the top two choices of dresses and hats - they're gorgeous. I think I might pick the second one, if it's during the day if it were me, but they're both adorable. I don't like to show my arms, either, so you're not the only one. ;) Hope you have fun!
