Can't Decide!

I need help! (Not the usual kind of help that people think I need!)

Which, if any, of these dresses do you think I might look half way decent in for my lovely brothers wedding in March? I don’t usually wear dresses but as this is a very special occasion I am making an exception! 


  1. 2 and 3 are lovely but might be similar to bridesmaid styles, do you know what colour bridesmaids are wearing? 4 is very classy and really figure flattering. 5, 6 and 7 are lovely if you are very slim (I don't know!). And 9 is lovely, but very pale, again, do you know what the bride is wearing as you wouldn't want to be similar to her.

    Not sure if I helped at all - I eliminated 1 and 8, and 5-7 if you're not slim?

  2. Just struck me, I am not sure if I have commented before, I've been reading you for a while!

  3. Thanks for your comment. Wedding colors are lemon. Not sure about bridesmaids but my daughter is a flower girl. I am not slim by any stretch of the imagination. I think I may be investing in a pair of Spanx!
    By the way, how did you come across my blog?

  4. Hi Sarah, I am not 100% sure but I suspect it was girlguiding/girl scout related, I think I did comment before when you were thinking about Daisies?

  5. Little bit late to the party-- I only just realised that you're not showing up in my blog feed for some reason! Must fix! Anyway, I love 2 & 3, and 4 would be my next choice. Although Jen makes a good point about those being similar to bridesmaid dresses.

It's A New Year. First Post of 2016.

It is 2016.

Holy crap! How did that happen? (I know how it happened, I'm just amazed it is 2016 already)

So, this is going to be a good year. It will.

This year I turn 40. Honestly that is a good thing. Doctors told my parents I'd be dead by Christmas 1976. I plan on having a blow-out in Vegas and getting absolutely blotto with a group of girlfriends.

Before I turn 40 I have 4 things I want to learn.

1: Learn to knit. I am getting on with it, slowly. I have been following these YouTube videos.

2: Learn to dance. The husband has offered to learn with me, I just have to choose what dance I want to learn. I have found a dance school in town and I am going to check them out.

3: Learn sign language. I found a course at a local community college, but there is a pre-requisite that I'd need to meet before joining the ASL class. There are loads of online courses though that I think I will have a go at first.

4: Learn to surf. I have found a place that does lessons, and guarantees …

Being a Grown Up

We owned a house in the UK up until a couple weeks ago. We finally sold it and will soon, all being well, be in a position to buy somewhere here in South Carolina. Of course, with selling a property, you have to deal with the tax implications. Being an expat we have to deal with the tax implications in the UK and here in the US. I discovered by chance that we have to inform HMRC within 30 days of selling the house or we can be fined. Luckily there is an online form we can submit ahead of doing our actual self assessment tax return later in the year. We have to inform them separately because we owned it jointly and sold it jointly. We have to work out what, if any, Capital Gains Tax we have to pay here and there. Luckily we can defer payment of the UK CGT until the end of January 2017, which as luck would have it coincides with our tax return for the US in which we have to declare the sale. I have looked for information regarding the US aspect of CGT and I have to say, I have done more…

Summer, hot,....and long,....really, really long.

We are approaching the halfway point between my kids finishing their last year of school and them starting their next year of school. From their last day in 4th and 5th grade to their last day of summer break before starting 5th and 6th grade, they have 75 days of summer break. 10 weeks and 5 days, or 2 months 14 days off school. I recall feeling my summer break was too long when I was a kid and I only got 6 weeks off. I think my mother would have lost her mind if I had had a summer break as long as my kids have. I guess I can sort of understand why they do it. When the days are normally in the mid 90s to low 100s fahrenheit throughout the months of June, July and August, you don't really want kids sitting around in class. The cost of running the a/c in schools would probably be astronomical. Plus there are so many summer camps around that parents, if they can afford it, can send their kiddos to day camp, week long sleepaway camp or even a month long sleepaway camp. My 2 have not …
