Salvation

I know none of you really care but I thought it appropriate, after the display I showed a couple of weeks ago, to proclaim that a dress has been procured for the banquet this coming weekend. After trudging through 4 more stores, this time with the aid of my younger sister, I managed to find one at Sears today that looks great. It's a black sheath dress with some glittery things along the neckline that is kind of ruffley and flowy along the bottom where it hits at my knees.

Just the fact that I managed to find something is worth celebrating but even more than that, it was on clearance and I got it for only $20! I was able to return the JCPenney ugly green frock to the local store because they have a catalog department. They gave me my $80 refund on my credit card right there at the desk. Since I saved so much on the dress, I was also able to get myself a cute little pair of shoes, a matching purse as well as some jewelry for less than the cost of the original dress.

I'm so relieved and thankful that I was able to get myself something that will look good. Tall-Boy got himself a new shirt and tie to change the look of his suit as well. I can rest and relax for the rest of the week now. Phew.
